History of the Madden Curse

By on June 24, 2015


Madden 2005 – Ray Lewis2210875-box_madden05

 After a career-high in interceptions the previous year, Ray Lewis was held without an INT for the first time in his career and missed the final game due to a wrist injury to cap off a disappointing 9-7 season.  The Curse carried over to the next season where he only played in 6 games; a career-low.

Madden 06 – Donovan McNabbMadden 2006

McNabb thought he could dismiss the Madden Curse and it wouldn’t respond like Terrell Owens after an overthrow.  After being awarded the cover, McNabb said, “it might be a trend, but I don’t believe in the curse at all.”

After suffering a sports hernia in week one, McNabb was still in denial that his season was going to be cut short by the Madden Curse  eventually and he played in 8 more games before injuring it further. To make sure he understood and respected the power of The Curse, it forced McNabb to miss 6 games the following season with a torn ACL and meniscus.

    some of these dont consist of madden curses. Calvin Johnson was not effected clearly he played through the season and he broke (and tied) records. if he didnt tell everyone that he hurt himself no one would’ve known

    and Richard Sherman MADE IT TO THE SUPERBOWL!!! how is that a curse. a debatable play call to win the game is not a madden curse effect neither was that shoulder injury he still played like richard sherman throughout the season

    thats at least 2 points for players

    drew brees, Larry fitzgerald are debatable
