SWEET!!!!!!! Rather than be a pecmist and Being a subscriber to SI, I find 2 covers in 2 back to back issues a very nice compliment rather than a jinx.. Not to mention they are using my avatar as there cover just from a different angle.. :P WAY TO GO BEN!!!! YOU DESERVE IT BUDDY :tt:

They are releasing 4 different covers, one for each quarterback. So the jinx is void this time.

Aside from the obvious four cities/states, how are they deciding which cover to release in which cities/states?

And how can Steeler Nation get a copy of the Roethlisberger cover?

Are you sure about that??......if so......I'm glad to hear that.
Rep points coming your way.


As long as Ben doesn't end up on the cover Madden.

Come Sunday night and Monday morning there are going to be 2 sets of fans that don't buy into the jinx being void. Denver and one of the NFC teams (probably Carolina).

As long as Ben doesn't end up on the cover Madden.


Madden I buy into a bit more people either break or just suck after being on Madden box cover.

Nice. I'm going to have to pick this one up. I just bought the Jerome one yesterday.

I would have been surprised if SI didn't put a Steeler on the cover after what they did against the Colts. It would have been irresponsible of them as reporters.

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!?????? ?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, the odds have been stacked against the Steelers since Turnover Tommy puked it away against the Jags so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. One good thing, I guess, is that Ben is probably the biggest star left in the playoffs but, unfortunately, that doesn't mean a damn thing come Sunday. Might as well break a couple more hearts this weekend and end the SI cover jinx.

FYI is visual confirmation SI is going with multiple covers - for those who want to see Plummer on the cover to relieve any jinx anxiety, a link is attached.

I for one am disappointed I probably will get a Panthers cover here in the ATL, but after what happened to Jerome (and for that matter Troy's mid-season slump) I am glad it is not exclusively Ben on the SI cover.

Broncos on cover nationwide though. If there is a jinx, I say it's gonna be on Denver.

I'm sure. It was on the news last night and I just looked at S.I. site and they have the Hasselbeck cover on there right now.
(Thanks for rep)

Got my issue of SI yesterday here in Northern Kentucky, I was very disappointed to get steve smith of the panthers on the cover. :dang: Guess they had more than just 4 covers going around with more than just QB's.

Here in NKY id rather of had any of the Steelers on the cover or at very least Shaun Alexander of the seahawks.

Damnit I knew it!! I got my SI today and Matt Hasselback is on the cover.. I would have at least liked Plummer better as he's from Boise.. SI will be getting a call for sure..

Inside the actual magazine it shows the four different covers. I'm in NY and we got Big Ben. It looks like crap though as all the print is doubled and it just looks like they were all rushed out because of the multiple covers. Still a good read though.

Big ben is the only quarterback selected in the first round of a draft left in the playoff.
Hes gotta pull this off.........


Makes me sick to think that people or predicting the Broncos having success running the ball!!!!

4 covers or not, we are we better not get jinxed.. we'll be ok.. Big Ben's my favorite player and my hero :helmet: I've always wished to meet him, so it's awesome to see him on a cover of anything.. :tt: :tt: :tt: :tt:

Ok.. so now can we lay the SI cover jinx to rest?? Thank you very much.. Jinx stinks.. there ain't no such thing so start believin! Anyways.. Just wanted to say I called up SI and requested they send me the cover with Ben on it and there gladly doing so.. If anyone else has a subscription they can call 1.800.528.5000 and enter your account number and press 0 for customer service.. Just tell them your a die hard steelers fan and you gotta have that cover to complete your collection. hehe.. At least that's what I did but it's the truth too.. Anyways.. Once again Ben puts to rest any hopes of a Jinx.. Way to go Ben see ya at the big dance you backwoods lookin badass!!!
