New Orleans Saints quarterback, Drew Brees, is the cover athlete for Madden NFL ’11, EA Sports today announced. Let the curse talk begin.
The curse has seen mighty cover athletes Donovan McNabb, Michael Vick, Shaun Alexander and most recently Larry Fitzgerald, fall to injury during the season following the Madden NFL cover appearance. It’s simple. If you’re on the Madden cover, you’re likely to get injured.
According to an interview with the QB on The Statesman, Brees doesn’t care much for the curse.
“I believe in fate, and if it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be. But destiny is stronger than any curse, and this team is destined for great things,” Brees said.
Here it is.
