1. I believe another superstition was being on the cover of Madden NFL games



The Madden Curse: Examining the Last 10 Players to Make the Cover

It's commonly known to sports fans that a so-called "Madden Curse" exists for whatever player is chosen to appear on the Madden NFL cover. Many dismiss it as folklore, but does it actually exist?

For those who don't know what the curse is, it's said that if a player appears on the cover, then the next season he will either get hurt, see a decrease in his production, his team will have a bad season or sometimes even all three.

So, here are the last 10 players to appear on the cover, spanning from 2003-2012. Is the Madden Curse real? By the end, you'll be able to decide for yourself, and while you may be skeptical now, the answer may surprise you.

2. the logical explanation, i suppose, is that if a player is having such a great season

that he makes the cover of si or the madden game, they have nowhere to go except down.

4. Remember the Campbell's Soup can superstition?

I don't see football guys advertising for them so maybe they just don't do it anymore?

5. Dak Prescott is advertising for them now.

I am all for keeping the Campbell's Soup tradition alive.
