I Hadn't Thought About This Regarding The Madden Curse...

Recommended Posts

NFL.com mentioned this. If you look at Peyton Hillis, he has been taking some flak recently regarding sitting out due to illness. Regardless, what's really odd is Peyton Manning has also been undergoing a dilemma with his neck injury knocking him out all season, finally breaking his ironman streak. What's even stranger, however, is New Orleans coach Sean Payton also got injured, and he doesn't even get involved in the game physically! It's like everyone named Peyton (or sounds like Peyton) is getting knocked out one-by-one...

I heard the the "HOOD" has some insider pull over at EA Sports and had a microscopic Colts logo hidden on the cover. BB's discovered a new way to cheat!!! LOL :)

lol it's true... the Peyton(or Payton)'s are taking a hit this year...

I believe in the Madden Curse; I'm not superstitious, but this is just scary. Faulk goes on cover goes on a decline...Michael Vick gets injured, has a bad year, then goes to jail.... Ray Lewis gets injured and has no picks....McNabb, bad year plus decline....Alexander, big decline plus he was a one hit wonder... Vince Young, decline.... Brett Favre, the decline plus the injuries.... Larry Fitz has a good year, but not great and Polamalu gets injured plus has okay year.... DREW BREES IS THE FIRST GUY TO OVERCOME IT.... Peyton Hillis is having a horrible year, been injured/sick, and it's not getting better.

Brees through 22 picks and ended up getting knocked out of the playoffs by a team with a losing-record. That has to count for something.

Drew Brees had statistically the worst year in his career since his first year starting with the Chargers. There's definitely something to the Madden Curse.

Uh oh, and it thickens even more. The Browns are willing to let Hillis walk after this season:

http://www.nfl.com/n..._headline_stack

"I think everybody's noticed a little bit of a change in him, but he could have some family issues or something," Wallace told the newspaper. "Maybe his priorities have changed. We have a whole new staff, so a lot of things have changed. Maybe some of it's overblown."

Umm hello? Wallace?... It's the Madden Curse! It can change a man! So in just one season, he is going to go from being Madden cover boy and locker-room and fan favorite, to being a free agent?

The Madden Curse has been explained to just be a statistically anomaly. These guys play football, so of course theres a good chance they get hurt and have an off season. In fact, you could say they you would be a fantasy football genius, if you would take the best performers of the previous season, and then bet against them, (Know they are going to have an off year), and pick an up and coming pick for RB. History supports this claim.

    • I think this could be a breakout game for JB to be honest. Houston's DBs are a bit hobbled, and one of their OTs is pretty banged up. That aside, I think TY will do his thing, and I'm betting Ebron shakes off the drops.    That tweet where JB said the deep balls are coming, does give me hope. Not because I want him throwing deep a bunch, but because going deep a couple times will impact how Houston's D will play us. Houston is not great at all vs the pass, but top 10 vs the run. I'm guessing Reich will try to exploit that. It's pretty much a given they're going to key on stopping Mack and TY, and both Reich (play calling) and JB need to use that against them.    If JB could have a good game and win this one, we have 3 very winnable games after that. Being 7-2 going into the last 7 games (which should be pretty tight) would be awesome. 
    • Matt Ryan deserves better. 30 for 36 4Tds and still loses. Teams were like 18-2 when stat line like this happens and Matt Ryan has the only 2 loses 
    • Cant say I like OSU a single ounce. Unfortunately they churn out a ton of talent. With that, once they become Colts, I can usually come around to the players. Seems CB is fond of that pipeline but our guys are injured an awful lot. Maybe stop drafting OSU players? It just seems hard to trust them to stay on the field. 
    • This weeks Around the NFL preview on Colts vs Texans is kinda relevant. 29 Minute mark it starts:   http://www.nfl.com/m/share?p=%2Fvideos%2Faround-the-nfl%2F0ap3000001066625%2FATN-2019-Week-7-Preview
    • Well... leave room for the possibility of TY and Brissett having a great outing this week.   TY's 3rd best game vs the Texans...who he's punished and torched relentlessly... came with Brissett as the QB in 2017 in the waning days of that very same Grigson/Pagano mess. Yes, Ballard was aboard by then but had yet to comprehensively turn over the roster.   No one can dispute the read/progression capabilities that Andrew had as a QB....but Jacoby HAS a chemistry with TY that will only be bolstered by the run game and the O-line, which pummeled Houston last year. And that was WITH Clowney there.   A big key to this game, IMO....is rattling and physically pounding Watson...and mixing coverages like we did against Mahomes.   I believe we can, I believe TY will light them up again....and I'm picking us to win this game.... 27-17.
