Has the Madden curse struck again? Last night Troy Polamalu was injured during the 2nd quarter as the Steelers battled it out against the Titans. Read more about the story here.
The merciless Madden curse is said to have struck again, this time it was at the very first 2009 -2010 regular season game. Pittsburgh Steelers safety and 2010 Madden co-cover player Troy Polamalu injured his knee last night during the 2nd quarter while playing defense against the Tennessee Titans.
At this point in time, the only information that’s been made available is that he’s suffering from a sprained MCL. To what extent and when he will return to game play is anyone’s guess.
Other NFL players who have suffered the same fate after being featured on the cover of the popular video game include Marshall Faulk, Ray Lewis, Shaun Alexander, Vince Young, and Michael Vick.
What I propose is John making a return to his games cover next year so that we wont have to hear about this silly superstition again.
But just in case you believe in this type of stuff, it may be in your best interest to trade Arizona Cardinal star Larry Fitzgerald off of your fantasy team.
