Expect Drew Brees To Be Eaten By Giant Cockroaches

It’s official…New Orleans Saints quarterback and Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees is the cover athlete for Madden NFL 11

 

Brees won out over Minnesota Vikings’ serial drunk-driver defensive end Jared Allen and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne in EA Sports’ first fan voting campaign to choose the cover athlete. Of course, this means Brees is likely to be the next to suffer the “Madden Curse:”

  • 2010 – Troy Polamalu: Played only five games due to knee injuries
  • 2007 – Shaun Alexander: Fractured foot, missed six games
  • 2006 – Donovan McNabb: Sports hernia, missed seven games; feuded with Terrell Owens all year; had been to five straight Pro Bowls, hasn’t been since
  • 2005 – Ray Lewis: Broke wrist, missed one game; first season without interception; missed 10 games next year with thigh injury
  • 2004 –  Michael Vick: Fractured fibula one day after video game was released, missed 11 games; Pro Bowl next 2 seasons; obvious issues since then
  • 2003 – Marshall Faulk: Ankle injury, missed two games, never rushed for 1,000 yards again
  • 2001 – Daunte Culpepper: 4-7 record before season-ending knee injury
  • 2000 – Barry Sanders: Retired one week before training camp
  • 1999- Garrison Hearst – Shatters an ankle so badly it takes two years to heal. Hearst is never really an effective NFL player again

So, enjoy it while you can, Saints’ fans, because the odds are soon your quarterback will suffer some sort of disabling injury. Or, he might just plain suck. Either way, this is what you get for not voting for Jared Allen a few more times.
