And The Winner Of The Madden 10 Cover Art Is……….


In the 21-year history of the Madden franchise, the game box art has been one of the most coveted honors for a special player. Well for the first time there are two special players that will grace the Madden 10 cover. Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu and Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald are the honorees’ this year. Madden 10 is due out in August for all major gaming platforms , and yes, I guess that includes the Wii.

Now I have to rethink the idea of selecting Fitzgerald on my fantasy football league this year.

At what point foes thee Madden Curse hand off to the Collinsworth curse?

Only when the game is mistakenly called Collinsworth Football 2011.

Even as a joke that sounds turrible.
