Our hopes that sharing the Madden Cover would negate the effects of its famous curse were unjustified. It took less than one half of one football game for Madden voodoo to attack Troy's knee.
Stupid John Madden.
In April, when news came out that Troy would be on the cover, I wrote this:
"Maybe since there are two players on the cover, each will only get half a curse. Expect Troy to miss 6- 8 games due to injury next year, but be back in time for the playoffs. Great googly moogly."
Here's to hoping its the first correct prediction I've ever made. Please Troy. Come back in 6 weeks better than ever.
Be afraid Larry Fitzgerald, be very afraid.
