    "Actually, I don't even believe in curses. It's really sad how many people believe in curses. This is football; everyone gets hurt. If you run the ball 40 times a game, you're going to get banged around and get nicks and bruises here and there, but I don't pay too much attention to that. I'll let it take care of itself." -- Peyton Hillis, May 11, 2011

    "No doubt about it, things haven't worked to my favor this year. There's a few things that happened that made me believe in curses. Ain't no doubt about it." -- Peyton Hillis, Dec. 29, 2011

    All it took was a 600-yard, eight-touchdown decline in his rushing numbers this season to get Peyton Hillis to believe in the Madden Curse.

    The Cleveland Browns running back admitted this week that he finally believes in the so-called curse that plagues NFL players who appear on the cover of the popular video game series. Like Michael Vick, Daunte Culpepper, Shaun Alexander, Drew Brees and Vince Young before him, Hillis insisted there's no such thing as a curse when it was announced he had won a fan vote to becoming the cover athlete on the 2012 edition of the game.

    I know in my mind that the whole curse, lucky, unlucky thing is nonsense............but that doesn't mean that I want Ware or anybody else on the cover anytime soon :D

    As a side note, is there ANY doubt whatsoever that rodgers is going to be on the cover this coming year? That is if the media will let his sack leave their mouth long enough for him to accept the offer.

    Oh it is absolutely real. It's not even about injuries anymore...the fact that something bad happens to that player or their team is just frightening
