The Worst Madden Curse Ever? Let's Rank 'Em

The Madden Curse is legendary, but it has not hit as hard the last two seasons. Lamar Jackson maybe didn’t get to the Super Bowl this year, but it was hardly a terrible campaign. Last year, Patrick Mahomes won the Super Bowl while on the cover, and look there, he’s back in the Super Bowl again this season. Still, there was a run there where the evilness of the Madden Curse was undeniable. We even took it upon ourselves in the past to go through an alternate timeline of Madden covers to see how things could have gone with different athletes on the cover. But the question is, who dealt with the worst Madden Curse ever?

Well, let’s take you through the top five and go from there.

I think a couple players can make the claim here, but it also depends on if we’re just factoring in the single season the athlete was on the cover, or if we’re taking the totality of the career into the equation after getting on the cover. Either way, this is not a list you want to make as an NFL player.

  1. Hillis would not be in my top five because he didn't have much of a track record, plus it was a fan vote. I get the concept for why Vince Young ends up where he is, but Vick strikes me as the most memorable example based on the timing of when he got hurt, plus how much the Madden Curse was finally being talked about at that moment.
    Brett Favre should be on this list. He was on the cover for the sole purpose of ending the curse because he was "retired". Then he unretired drama got started between he and Rodgers, and he ended up getting traded to the Jets. Getting traded to the Jets should land anyone on this list in it self.

    Who could be on the madden 22 cover ?

    If Brady wins the Super Bowl I would love to see him get it again. Tough call otherwise. Maybe Rodgers if things cool down and he stays in GB?
