YEARLY REMINDER :
Do not draft Madden coverboys in FFL's
You must have 2 other people in your league.
i think im in his league
Is there anyway to put the entire colts team on the cover, If Not I'll settle for a Manning Family picture...
in 1999 and 2000 PAL versions of madden Garrison Hearst and Dorsey Levens were cover boys, I think Hearst did his knee and Levens either got injured or just played like crap.
Yep, I'm off to adjust accordingly. I lost TWO players today...SA and K Warner.
Almost 75% of 142000 people on ESPN.com believes it's real.
Dawg, you can't argue with the results.
I was listening to ESPN radio, and the host there listed past curses, but wasn't sure about EG's curse. I thought it was the turf toe season...am I right on that?
I won't I believe it, and I have believed it for years now... If nothing else, this year further reaffirms the truth. I always thought it had to do with Ray Ray stealing EG's lunch money in the playoff game... When we were the best team in the NFL.
Found it in wikipedia
Eddie George, then of the Tennessee Titans, who graced the 2001 box, was the second 'cursed' player. Although he had the best year of his career, rushing for 1,509 yards, catching 50 passes for 453 yards and scoring 16 total touchdowns, he was cursed by bobbling a pass in the playoffs. The pass was then intercepted by Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis, who returned the ball for a touchdown. George, (up until then) known for his durability, would also get injured the following season. After regularly averaging nearly 4 yards per carry in his first five seasons and rushing for over 1,300 yards in each one, he averaged only 3 yards per carry and rushed for career lows of 939 yards and 5 touchdowns in the 2001 season. For the rest of his career, he never averaged more than 3.5 yards per carry, but did rush for over 1,000 yards twice and scored 14 touchdowns in 2002.
