Those worried about the "Madden Curse" can relax now. Adrian Peterson beat out our beloved Drew Brees in a whopping landslide (62%-38%). My guess is that the vast majority of Saints fans voted for Peterson. Some may have done so out of superstition, but I expect many voted against Brees to simply keep this offseason distraction off of his already busy summer schedule. We'd rather he stay home and continue to polish his flawless skills and accuracy than travel to New York and promote another video game. Plus, the Vikings needed a win against Mr. Brees. They haven't done so well against him lately.

You can place your vote for the final four here.

If Michael Vick beats out Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers in the final round, I'm gonna be sick.
