Dang if it is Fitz, I'll have to get it. It would be the 2nd time he's on the EA Cover. He was on the College Cover in 2005 I think the year he went pro and was the runner up for the Heisman. That's right PITT was on the cover of NCAA Football Baby!

I'm still going to get it, no matter who's on the cover. Right now, the last one I got was the one with Alexander on the Cover. The last time the Steelers won the Super Bowl. I play it once in a while and Dominate with Porter on defense and Ben throws the ball great in that version.

Now that WE have won the SB again. Time to upgrade!

After buying 09 i said im not gonna waste my money on madden anymore. i know my brother plays it a lot (he is sponsored by some website and gets to play in online tournaments and stuff like that) so if i ever get the urge to play it i know i may be able to grab it off of him every so often.

im more into college football so ill probably get NCAA this year

Im thinking Adrian Peterson or Fitz. A few years ago Charger fans petioned to keep LT off the cover. We may wanna think about doing the same.

Yeah, somebody needs to start a petition to keep Steelers players off the cover. Don't know if I believe in "The Curse," but, better safe than sorry...

I might just join that petition - I do believe in the curse.. Let's take a look at the last 4 Madden cover boys:

2005 - Shaun Alexander. Coincidence that 2005 was his last good season.
2006 - Mike Vick. Still trying to get out of prison.
2007 - Vince Young. Will "Sybil" even play anymore?
2008 - Brett Favre. The curse may have finally retired him for good.

No Steelers, please.

They won't put Ben or Troy on it. They seem to have a fetish for the Super Bowl losers, or else the one guy who had a great year on a mediocre team.

Fitzgerald seems like a wonderful pick to carry on the curse. He's SO poised for a drop-off it's not even funny. It'd be hard for him NOT to disappoint people, since everyone thought he walked on water by the end of last season.

Add to that the fact that his QB is getting way too old, his sidekick Boldin may be out the door, the only running threat they had is probably gone, and poor ol' Fitz may be facing triple-teams all season. It doesn't help that the standard of comparison he faces is the career year he had last season while the whole team was playing out of their minds.

For some reason, I was thinking either Asante Samuel, James Harrison, or Demarcus Ware, why?

B/c quite simply, after years of offensive studs(and, of course, Bill Cowher as NFL Coach one year), I would have thought Madden would choose a DEFENSIVE player for a change.

With the standout year these 3 guys had, I was thinking "NFL Cornerback" OR "NFL Pass Rusher" would have been a great marketing tool by Madden.

Check the Madden 2010 thred under games. I posted a article I found on yahoo about them maybe going with Troy and Fitz.

SI likes to get around the problem by doing regional covers so no team gets jinxed. Maybe EA can try that for the Madden series. They could even let people who order online pick whatever player they want for their cover.

I hope they just leave Fitz on it.

And before you ask, yes I believe in the curse.

Do you believe in the SI curse too? The Steelers have shown time and time again that curses don't hurt STEEL.

I would totally organize a fan vote against Troy being on the cover.

Madden isn't a good enough football game to warrant the usage of a STEELERS player on the cover.

I was shopping at the FYE store in my local mall today and they had Fitzgerald on their advertisement for Madden 2010. I don't think it means anything, but just some food for thought.

Don't draft Fitz on any of your fantasy teams!!!

To be honest I don't really want to chance any Steelers being on the Madden cover, when you read through the findings on Wikipedia they don't sound to good.

The Madden Curse is real.

They Put Cowher on the EA Sports Cover of the Coaching game. We missed the playoffs and he retired.

2000, Barry Sanders on the Cover, then he up and retired before the season.
2001, Eddie George, Least Effected by Curse stats wise. But had a tipped ball in the playoffs run back for a TD by the Ravens to lose the game.
2002, Daunte Culpepper, 4-7 record with a season ending knee injury.
2003, Marshall Faulk, worst season ever, Rams miss playoffs.
2004, Michael Vick...Prison much? Oh and this is the year he broke his leg.
2005, Ray Lewis, torn right hamstring, out for season after week 6.
2006, Donavan McNabb, Sports Hernia, surgery, season over at week 8.
2007, Shaun Alexander, week 3, broken foot, season over.
2008, Vince Young, Head case who is riding the pine.
2009, Brett Favre in a Packers Uniform, what worse thing is there then to end the career as a Jet?

That curse is Real.

Sports Illustrated doesn't have a curse, its a Blessing when we are on the Cover of SI!

Oh, and its on Snopes

I think U'r right. Only Madden I have is 1 with Alexander on the cover.

They won't put Ben or Troy on it. They seem to have a fetish for the Super Bowl losers, or else the one guy who had a great year on a mediocre team...

NOOOOOOOO!!!! Not a Troy. Madden is a curse. Didn't our Coach Cowher had sucky year, when they put him on the cover 4 similar game, 2?

With the way a number of people on this board feel about Willie Parker,

I am surprised they aren't clamoring for him to be on the cover.
