Calvin Johnson Will Grace Madden NFL 13…But Can He Break the Curse?
Lyons receiver Calvin Johnson beat out Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton pulling in 52% of the casted 651,790 votes, laughing off the “Madden Curse” that has found several players unable to perform to their maximum potential after being featured on a Madden cover (Vince Young, Brett Favre, Donovan McNabb just to name a few). Lyons teammate Nate Burleson voted for Johnson saying he believed if anyone could break the curse, it would be Johnson.
“Yeah, I’m going to vote for him…I’d love to see my guy on the cover of Madden. I’m a big Madden fan. … If any guy can break the curse it’s Calvin. This dude is a monster. He’s strong enough to break tackles, so he can break a curse.” – Nate Burleson via larrybrownsports.com
