One down T but i'm breaking the curse.. My half of the box will not get injured

It took only one week — but the ruthless Madden video game curse struck again last night.

After making one of the sickest interceptions you’re going to see all year, 2010 Madden co-cover guy Troy Polamalu went down with a sprained MCL in his knee during the 2nd quarter of last night’s Steelers-Titans game.

It’s no coincidence … no fluke … he should’ve seen it coming.

Players who have graced the cover of the Madden video game box have been doomed since 2002 — Marshall Faulk, Ray Lewis, Vince Young, Shaun Alexander … and of course Michael Vick.

The evil twist — this year, Troy shares the cover with Arizona Cardinals superstar Larry Fitzgerald. Might be a good time to trade him off your fantasy squad…
