Darren McFadden Avoids Madden Curse

Losing never felt so good. For a man with a brief history of injury problems the last thing Darren McFadden needed was to be voted onto the cover of Madden 12.

EA Sports put together a March Madness style tournament to decide who will grace to cover of Madden 12. McFadden (a 16 Seed) lost out to crybaby Philip Rivers in round one.

Thank goodness!

Rivers can have the victory and the increased odds of missing the next season due to injury.

If he can stay healthy, Run DMC is one of the most electrifying players in the game. So this loss cannot be seen as anything but a good thing. The long history of those that have gone from Madden cover boy to injured is more than enough reason to be toasting to the success of Rivers and all those bandwagon Charger fans that gave him 67% of the vote.

Congrats, San Diego!

Whenever we get football again you’re one step closer to seeing another season of underachievement. At least this time you can blame Madden instead of Norv Turner…but first Crybaby is going to have to get by Adrian Peterson in round two.
