    On the cover of Madden 09 is...

    Brett Favre. WORD.

    Madden NFL 09 : EA Sports



    That's certainly one way to avoid the "Madden Curse"


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.

    Re: On the cover of Madden 09 is...

    More proof that John Madden has a huge crush on Favre. Note I did not say man-crush, this is more like a junior high type crush.

    I'm not sure that Madden has much to do with the game anymore. He lends his name to it, and that's about it. Shoot, he doesn't even do commentary in the game anymore.

    That being said, he does have a total crush on Favre. It's pretty sickening.

    Re: On the cover of Madden 09 is...

    it will be so weird not seeing favre on that game though... but now i can put sage on the packers and use him


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: On the cover of Madden 09 is...

    I love brett favre and really respect him, but listening to madden talk about him is unbearable. bretts done some amazing things and had a great career but he is not even in the top 5 best QB's of all time, but john madden would make it sound like he is/was the best player ever.

    it is kinda interesting to put a non-active player on the cover as a kind of slap in the face of the believers of the madden curse.
