It's hard enough for Vince Young. Being a Negro QB in the NFL paints a target right in the middle of his back. Being the cover boy for Madden now subjects him to the curse.
But things just got worse.
We all know that SI.com's Peter King is well known for NEVER being right. Well, this is what Peter had to say about the Madden "curse":
And this stuff about a jinx for the last six players on the box getting injured the year they were featured on the box? The sport is football, people. Men get hurt, very often, playing football. And by the way, the only man I ever knew who seriously did not want to be on the cover of SI because of its supposed jinx was Bill Parcells, a card-carrying superstitious nut. Jinx, schminx.
Well, there you have it. Clearly, the power brokers in the NFL have decided to ensure that Young's season will be a short one.
Personally, we at NOISb are firmly convinced (based on past history) that Peter King's opinions and picks are substantially more jinxed than the curse.
We wish Vince a speedy recovery and successful rehab, in advance.
Oh and by the way. Just in case you were wondering, Peter also had this to say:
I like the way Jason Whitlock thinks.
We suggest Jason do some soul searching.
