For those who might be sweating a second year of "The Madden Curse," this is probably unwelcome news. Sir Breesus beat out Bucs QB Josh Freeman in round 1 with 56% of the vote. He now faces Jets QB Mark Sanchez. In a battle of pure QB skills and experience, Brees should win a matchup with Sanchez quite easily, but that's not what this is. This is essentially fans voting for their favorite players, so I wonder if Jets Nation can put young Mark over the top and into the next round.
Even though the people at EA Sports are taking a new approach to deciding who graces their Madden video game cover this year, I still think Aaron Rodgers should win easily. He's the MVP of the last Super Bowl and a prized asset to all fantasy football players. Those worried about Drew winning and thus facing "the curse" again, probably have little to be concerned about.
