ESPN The Magazine enlisted Larry Fitzgerald to help find a cure for the Super Bowl hangover. The full piece is available to Insider subscribers.
Fitzgerald calls Hines Ward, Muhsin Muhammad and Richard Seymour. All three played for teams that missed the postseason after a Super Bowl appearance.
Fitzgerald: Seems like part of the curse is injuries, so I ask 'Moose' if the short off-season has any impact. 'I don't think so,' he says. 'We lost Steve Smith in Week 1 because somebody fell on his leg. Last year, somebody fell on Tom Brady's knee. Those injuries aren't about conditioning. Call it a jinx.' Well, that's the last thing I need. I'm on the cover of Madden, and we know how that goes.
Might Fitzgerald be jinxing the jinx by acknowledging it publicly?
