Future Shaun Alexander fantasy football owners next season should proceed with caution. He has been named the new cover boy for Madden 2007. I don't believe much in curses but I believe in the Madden curse. Judging from history that is a very bad omen for Seattle and fantasy owners.
Someone had to be on the cover. When you have a good season you're a candidate to be on it. Then that usually means you'll have a bad season. Shaun dismissed any thoughts of a curse and didn't believe it. That's exactly what Donovan McNabb said last year and look what happened to him.
I can't explain how being on a video game cover can be a curse. It's so bizarre. You can't just dismiss is as pure coincidence. If it happens just once or twice you could. But when it's happened six years in a row, you can't deny the destruction the curse has left for those in its path. Just ask Marshall Faulk, Ray Lewis, McNabb, Michael Vick, Dante Culpepper, and Eddie George what being on the cover did for their season.
