Who will get the Madden curse this year? Peyton Hillis was voted onto the cover last season and he had lingering injuries the whole season and did not make any noise the whole season. The makers of Madden are going to run a playoff voting system again and this year the New England Patriots have 2 options to move on. The choices will be between Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski. Pick your poison and make your votes on their facebook page. You can also vote for players on other teams to make it on the cover.
