    Vince Young to be on the cover of Madden '08 (LT turned it down)

    LINK

    ESPN link

    Last year's victim of the "Madden Curse" was Shaun Alexander, who dealt with a foot injury all season and finished with a career low 3.6 yards-per-carry. Others who've been cursed include Marshall Faulk ('03), Michael Vick ('04), Ray Lewis ('05), and Donovan McNabb ('06).


    I feel bad for you, Vince.

    EDIT:

    LT turned it down...

    If they offered it to Vince Young, you have to wonder how many guys they offered it to and got rejected. LT and Peyton Manning come to mind.

    Umm, what? He received the Offensive Rookie of the Year award and led his team to a six game winning streak (which included beating Indy). Just b/c his passing numbers weren't fantastic doesn't mean he didn't make an impact.

    Re: Vince Young to be on the cover of Madden '08

    Do you suppose that Tomlinson told them no? I can't imagine why they would put Vince Young on the cover and not LT. LT was the MVP!!!

    Honestly, I am bummed because LT is ALWAYS the first pick in my fantasy drafts and I never get the first pick. Sadistically, I was hoping he get injured and have to sit out.....yes I am a bad person.

    I agree...VY was a big reason the Titans had the record they did. Without him, they would have been a bottom feeder.

    Yes he was a sucess for the titans, but look at the past madden covers.. Lined with people that were much more successful.. Vince Young will be a great NFL Qb dont get me wrong, but someone had to turn it down?

    Madden: Hey Lad-, Lad-, Ladainian. How are you?

    Madden: I was wonder-, I was wondering-, I was wondering if you'd want to be on the cover of my video game for 2008.
    LT: You mean the one that when someone's on the cover, they get hurt that season?
    Madden: No, no. I think you've got it wrong, there's no relation between the two. Want me to get some video and my digital yellow highlighter and show you how the game had no impact on the injuries?
    LT: Um, no - I think I get the idea.
    Madden: So, wha-, what-, what do you say?
    LT: Thanks for the offer, but I'm going to pass. I'd like to stay in one piece this season.
    Madden: Fine, LT. No horse trailer for you!

    Re: Vince Young to be on the cover of Madden '08

    Hate to tell you this....but LT will get hurt this year....Obviously he turned it down because he was worried about the jinx. Guys that worry about getting hurt, get hurt. Vince Young won't get hurt, his team may or may not do well based on what management does. Young will do all he can...

    On a side note, the Vikings should pick up Seneca Wallace. He took my Clones to the promise land (sort of), and he can do the same for them.

    Now I'll make sure not to draft VY this year...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    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."
