After winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history, the New Orleans Saints have plenty to be giddy about. New season coming up, the shine of the NFL glistening down on the Superdome on opening night, Reggie Bush breaking up with Kim Kardashian in a contract year, you name it – they’re making all the right moves.

Well, until the fans decided to name Drew Brees as the cover boy for Madden 11.

The Madden Curse is legendary and ever since they stopped using John Madden’s likeness for the cover, the athletes who make the cover go on to have either disappointing seasons or ones in which they find themselves injured. EA tried to be smart with Troy Polamalu & Larry Fitzgerald on the cover last year but still – Polamalu got hurt. Is somebody in New Orleans gonna put voodoo on this thing to keep Brees healthy and the Saints primed for a repeat?
