Okay, maybe that statement is untrue, but it’s getting to the point where you might as well start typing a figurative obituary for whoever ends up on the Madden cover. Detroit Lions’ wide-out Calvin Johnson will attempt to do the impossible and break the curse.
Look, you can be the most non-superstitious person in the world, but you can’t argue with the results. Every single cover athlete says the same thing. “Oh, the curse doesn’t scare me.” But when that tibia hits the field, they start to buy in.
Best of luck to you, MegaTron. You’re going to need it, boss.
