Everyone knows about the supposed Madden video game curse. The guy on the cover, the story goes, has a better chance of getting injured or having a down year.
We thought we'd have nothing to talk about when Electronic Artsagreed to put a retired Brett Favre on the cover. But, thankfully, Favre of course is out of retirement and that gives us another chance to see if the curse will continue for another year.
(While we're at it, is it fair to attribute Vince Young's current situation to being last year's cover athlete?)
Well, we here at Sports Biz are not just watching the Brett Favre. We've also got our eyes on Chicago Bears offensive lineman Roberto Garza. Why? Well because EA released its Spanish version of the game today and Garza is on the cover.
