    Madden Curse Broken!

    Didnt know whether to put this in gaming or pro sports, but Drew Brees has officially broken the Madden curse! Way to go Drew! About time someone proved this wrong!

    The Madden Curse comes in many forms. Brees did not dodge it.

    Madden curse is tied in with injuries, Brees did not get injured...

    History of the Madden Curse - ArmchairGM - Sports Wiki Database

    Not to mention, 2009 both Polamalu and Fitzgerald on the cover both got hurt as well!

    Barry Sanders, Eddie George. Two guys on that list who did NOT get hurt the year they were on the cover. Sanders retired before the season, and George tore it up in the regular season before giving up a critical fumble in the Titans' first playoff game, leading to a loss. Culpepper got hurt 11 games into the season, but he was playing AWFUL up to that point. The Curse is not limited to injuries. Brees was knocked out of the first round by a SEVEN AND NINE TEAM!!!(I spell it out because it deserves that much emphasis)

    The Curse lives on.

    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    I think the Q stands for "Quite" and the T stands for "True" I'll let you figure out what the F stands for.

    So I think he was agreeing with you

    That might be it. As a 20-year old fan of South Park, the first thing that leaps to mind (especially given my avatar and where I'm posting) is "quit f*****g talking".
