Let’s all hope this will end well. Lamar Jackson, the star Baltimore Raven’s Quarterback has been named Madden’s 2021 cover athlete. As we all know for decades there has a dark cloud hovering over the cover athletes of Madden games. A Tall tale, lore, or superstition whatever you may call it that has come true to many times to ignore. The Madden Curse is real and people are worried about the latest star.
The Madden curse has been a staple in American football gaming starting way back in 1999. When the curse first struck San Francisco’s star running back Garrison Hearst. It’s only until recent years that the curse seems to have been losing it’s hold. All is not lost for the young promising Ravens quarterback. Last season Kansas City Chief’s Quarterback Pat Mahomes was the cover athlete and he went on to win the Superbowl. As a diehard Cowboys fan, I do not want Lamar Jackson to win the Superbowl this year, but I hope the Madden curse does not strike again.
