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.

    Ummm Fitzgerald? He caught a career high in TDs….caught 97 balls…played in all 16 games. C’mon now you idiots reach every time you talk about this ‘jinx.

    Players get hurt in the NFL. If you expect someone to not have a little injury here or there then your silly.

    When Ray Lewis was on it he missed like a game or something and people say he’s cursed. If you buy into it then your retarded. PLAYERS GET HURT. Randy Moss got hurt, Eli Manning got hurt, Big Ben got in trouble. This is the NFL and players get injuries. Not some silly jink.
