The Madden Curse

    Shaun Alexander out "several weeks" with broken foot.

    Alas, I don't think it will matter. Hasselback does more surgery and beats my Bears.

    Scat-back types like Mo Morris give the Bears trouble, too.

    I read a preseason story about how Alexander didn't believe in curses, which was why he gave no thought to being the cover boy. I wonder what he thinks now.

    Here's a hypothetical -- If you're someone such as Peyton Manning or Brian Urlacher and EA comes calling next June or July and asks you to be on the cover of Madden 2008, do you tell them to fuck off? Do you think it's happened before?

    Saw the "Madden Curse" theory on ESPN.com a few minutes ago. Figures. ::)

    Why doesn't EA just alternate Randy Moss and Warren Sapp until 2010? It's not like things could get much worse in Oakland.

    They should just put Bo "The greatest video game football player of all time" Jackson on the cover.

    ... or they could just go back to having Madden on the cover.

    I love the Bo Jackson idea. Not only does it bring "video game" Bo back to the world, but it also offers Oakland a decent running back.

    answer: depends how much EA pays. if it's $5 million, you'll take your chances. if it's $200K, tell 'em to fuck off.

    I love that Alexander got hurt a couple of weeks after he did that commercial for ESPN.

    Maybe that's the curse.

    Maybe they should go with a No. 1 draft pick, especially if it is a QB.

    If they do that, then just_an-Sid can change from Don Pardo to Madden
