    Adrian Peterson fears the Madden curse

    Vikings fans wearing the latest line of tin foil Helga horns can relax:
    Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, one of nine finalists for the “honor,” won’t be on the cover.

    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Peterson rejected an offer to appear on the cover several weeks ago.

    Praise Jesus.

    I wonder if the curse will still exist now that Madden is retired
    We're bringing purple back.

    I think it has less to do with that but more to do with how tired he said he felt from the endorsements

    I thought it was established already that Futz was one of the players on the cover

    AD has enough endorsements, his schedule is full, and he is probably focusing on football right now.

    The Madden curse is a classic example of regression toward the mean.
    Same with the SI cover. Players are usually only asked to be on the cover of either one following some astounding performance.
    Most of the time, they overperformed during that time period, so it is natural that many people underperform later on.
    Not a curse, just a statistical regression.

    But I am still glad AD isn't on the cover.

    Exactly, it just means that he hasn't had his version of an astounding performance yet. No regression yet!
