I was thinking they'd ask him too. I think we should start a petition (not that it will do any good) to keep all players off of the Madden cover. It has never failed. Even if the Seahawks make the playoffs (and they will) Alexander had injuries and they aren't going back to the superbowl. Madden should just keep himself on the cover, or they should put some type of cartoon on the cover.
There hasn't been one exception to the curse. Though I don't really believe in curses, there is something to this.
