Is The Madden Curse Finally Dead?

Good job, Internet: you might have killed the Madden Curse.

Posted on

And in 2013, NFL legend Barry Sanders beat out the league's reigning MVP, Adrian Peterson, in a fan vote to become the cover athlete of this year's Madden NFL 25. As you might know, Barry Sanders is retired.

Considering that Barry Sanders is out of the game and in the Hall of Fame, there's no real way that he can succumb to the "Madden Curse," meaning that two years in a row the Curse will be for naught.


So, is the "Madden Curse" finally dead? It's too early to say for certain — let's hope Barry doesn't end up in any real-estate scams — but right now, it looks like yes. Rejoice, Robert Griffin.
