Madden causes Peyton Hillis to drastically change his stance on curses


“I don’t believe in curses,”

That’s what Browns running back Peyton Hillis told the New York times early this year after being name the cover athlete for Madden 12.

“There’s a few things that happened this year that made me believe in curses. Ain’t no doubt about it.”

That’s what he said after a tumultuous 2011 season that began with him being on the cover of Madden 12, and ended with injuries, contract disputes and a reported mid-week wedding.

That’s a pretty big swing in belief. It seems to me that last year’s success got to Hillis’ head a bit, and he may not have been focused on football this season. At any rate, it’s funny to see circumstances make yet another believer in the Madden curse.
