Congratulations on your new curse!
Make your plans accordingly Seahawks fans. Richard Sherman is going to have an off year. If the new contract wasn’t enough of an indicator there is the worst indicator of impending doom for an NFL player.
The dreaded Madden Curse.
And the Madden Cover -- blessing or curse -- goes to...Seahawks CB Richard Sherman. #MaddenCover— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 6, 2014
Some will say the curse is not real--while secretly crossing their fingers. Many will point to the record year that Calvin Johnson had when he was on the cover—but in spite of the 1900+ yards and 122 receptions he only had five touchdowns (second lowest total of his career).
So maybe if he is awesome enough—like Johnson—he can overcome the curse and still have a decent season. We shall see….
