Bress say Madden cover honor not a curse.

Jinxes donít matter to BreesMadden cover curse New Orleans Saints,

Keaton always said, ďI donít believe in God, but Iím afraid of him.Ē Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Keyser Soze. ó From the film, The Usual Suspects.

Likewise, I donít believe in rabbitís foots, karma or lucky pennies. But I do believe in the Madden curse. Especially last year, when Troy Polamalu was stricken by appearing on the cover of the famed video game, in what was just another in a long line of victims. Yet every year, we have no shortage of NFL players willing to be on the cover.

Drew Brees is no exception. The Super Bowl MVP joined Scott Kaplan and Billy Ray Smith on XX 1090 Radio in San Diego (via Sports Radio Interviews) to talk about the cover jinx, and why he is not afraid.

ďWell, you know, I think that thing has kinda taken on a life of its own,Ē Brees said. ďObviously its something that everyone jokes about and I guess itís not really much of a joke. First of all, this was the first year the fans have voted on it. Itís not like I was just chosen by Madden. The fans voted on it, they voted me on the cover, so I see that as a big honor. Ö

ďI thought there were so many positives of being on the cover. Címon this is something you dream of when youíre a kid, being on the cover of a video game.Ē

Positives like ACL tears, wrist injuries and all of the other maladies that have sidelined the other cover boys?
