Duck and Cover!!! - Meet the Madden '08 Curse

Get out your big red marker and cross off the name "Vince Young" from your fantasy football draft lists.  According to the Nashville Tennessean, Vince Young will be on the cover of EA Sport's Madden '08 video game.  

As every fantasy football player should know, the "Madden Curse" has taken down some of the best fantasy players in the game.  You probably don't remember him, but there was once a running back named Marshall Faulk.   He was a great fantasy player, just incredible.  Then he appeared on the cover of Madden '03, and then he got hurt, and now he's selling tacos from a cart two blocks from the St. Louis Arch.  It's tragic, really.  The full, sordid story of The Curse is spelled out by our friends at Wikipedia

I don't mean to be cruel, but if this report is true then poor Vince Young is doomed.  Doomed!  He may start out well but it's only a matter of time.  I'm moving Kerry Collins way up my sleeper list and I suggest you do the same.
