Madden Cover Curse: Fact or Fiction?

A fan vote on which NFL player will appear on the cover of the EA Sports Madden 13 video game is about to get under way, and Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton and WR Steve Smith are options to voters this year. While it would be cool to have one of our beloved Carolina Panthers grace the cover of Madden 13, is this something we need to call out the "Do Not Want Dog" for? What do you think Panthers fans, is the Madden Cover Curse real? Take a look at the last few cover athletes before voting:

2012 - Peyton Hillis
2011 - Drew Brees
2010 - Steelers vs. Cardinals (an attempt at breaking the curse?)
2009 - Brett Favre
2008 - Vince Young
2007 - Shaun Alexander
2006 - Donovan McNabb
2005 - Ray Lewis
2004 - Michael Vick
2003 - Marshall Faulk
2002 - Daunte Culpepper


In most cases, all players featured either got hurt that year, or had an off season. So, what is the verdict Panthers fans? Should we vote for one of our beloved players to be on the cover?
