Carolina Panthers Narrowly Avoid Madden Curse

On April 25th, it was revealed that America had voted in favor of a veteran.

ESPN told the world that Calvin “Megatron” Johnson barely beat Carolina’s Cam Newton: 52% to 48%.

I see it as a blessing in disguise. I would love for Cam to get the attention, but I firmly believe in the curse.

Before winning the vote last year, Peyton Hillis let America know he had no faith in the curse. Yet, following a 2011 season with 550+ yards that was plagued with injury and drama, he assures everyone he believes in the curse.

Since Carolina is in position to make a run for the NFC South, this can come with great feelings, knowing our Star is safe from the curse.
