Will the curse fall? This Wednesday it was revealed that Josh Allen will be on the cover of Madden 24the most famous NFL video game that is usually associated with a “bewitchment” for that player who appears on the cover, either by injury or loss of play right in that season.
For the first time, a Buffalo Bills player will be the protagonist of the Madden coverin which the likes of Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes, Calvin Johnson, Rob Gronkowski, Adrian Peterson and Antonio Brown, among many others, have paraded.
“A childhood dream come true”the quarterback tweeted. chosen in the first round of the 2018 Draft by Buffalo, with whom he has not been able to reach the Big Sunday of the National Football League so far, staying in the 2020 American Conference Final in that epic game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Other of the players who appeared as front page candidates from the video game were the quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, Joe Burrow; tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, Travis Kelce; New York Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner; and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, Jalen Hurts.
What is the Madden curse?
Being voted as the cover of the official video game is an honor given by the public to the most popular player of the NFLbut also represents a “torment” for which not even the greatest legends have been prepared, since serious injuries have made them victims of the Curse of the Madden. It should also be noted that there have been exceptions to the rule like Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes.
Since 1997, EA Sports has put this video game on sale annually, which initially had the mastermind that promoted it, the late John Madden, on the cover. From 1999it was decided that a player would be the cover. The first was the corridor Garrison Hearstwhich curiously inaugurated the “Curse of Madden” breaking an ankle in the postseason.
After that date, people like Barry Sanders (withdrawal), Eddie George (injury), Michael Vick (fracture), Donovan McNabb (hernia), Brett Favre (injury) and Troy Polamalu (ligaments) are just a few that have fallen prey to the unwelcome honor of being in Madden.
