I lurk over at the steelersforum.com sometimes and one of the posters started a thread that there are early rumors circulating that Ben will appear on the cover of Madden this year. He didn't have a source, but what the heck , with the lack of news right now it'll be fun to speculate.

I am not a superstitious person whatsoever , however the "Madden Curse" does scare me. Here's to hoping it's Kurt Warner or Drew Brees on the cover instead.

Roethlisberger will be on the cover of EA Sports' newest football video game, NFL Game Manager '09. :wink: :P

my guess is this rumor started because of the recent yahoo blog post from Shutdown Corner. He was discussing the new features in the game and most if not all of the screen shots used were of Big Ben.

The reason: the guy who wrote the article Shutdown Corner referenced is a photographer and some designer or something for the game and is a Steelers fan. So he used his team and his favorite player in the article.

That's how rumors get started.

The Xbox site had a preview of Madden 2010, with Ben on the Cover. I think it's off now though.

Someone who survives ramming his head through a car windshield has no fear of measly curses.

I can't see Ben agreeing to it either. This is the guy who wouldn't shave his beard leading upto his first Superbowl because he was supersticious that if he shaved, they'd lose. Or something like that I remember reading. With all the talk of the Madden superstition, I just don't see him doing it......
