Brees a finalist for 'Madden' cover
By Pat Yasinskas
You can vote for Drew Brees to be on the cover of “Madden NFL 11’’, but, if you believe in curses, you might want to think twice.
Brees, along with Jared Allen and Reggie Wayne are the finalists to grace the cover of the video game. For the first time ever, fans are voting to decide who gets the honor. You can vote here.
It would be a nice honor for Brees, who some fans think gets short-changed because he plays in a small market. But it also could be dangerous. There are a lot of previous cover boys who have suffered from the "Madden Curse" -- getting hurt or having a bad season after appearing on the front of the box.
