Does this mean LT is over-rated?

get out the bubble wrap......or did he take legal action just to avoid it?

By now you may have already heard that Vince Young is reportedly going to be announced as the cover man for EA sports 'Madden 2008'. My two cents:

This is only a story because of the alleged 'Madden Curse'. If, among others, Marshall Faulk, Donovan Mcnabb, Daunte Culpepper, Michael Vick and Shaun Alexander hadn't all become injured the season after they were on the cover then I'm not typing this post right now.

But they did. So recurring was the curse that Chargers fans actually set up a petition against LT being chosen. It even has it's on page on Wikipedia. Which leads you to wonder whether they chose a guy who was young enough for it still to be a big deal. Did they initially go after LT (likely) or Peyton Manning (Unlikely) but fail to obtain the necessary rights to put them on the cover?

Has the alleged curse become so fearful that it now outweighs the honour/cool factor of featuring on the Madden cover? What do you think?
