Vote for Lynch and Thomas; or don’t

There’s good news and there’s bad news about the Seahawks concerning the cover of the ridiculously popular Madden NFL video game.

The good news: Marshawn Lynch and Earl Thomas are the Seahawks’ candidates in the bracket-style competition to determine who will grace the cover of the 2013 game.

The bad news: Marshawn Lynch and Earl Thomas are the Seahawks’ candidates in the bracket-style competition to determine who will grace the cover of the 2013 game.

While it would be an honor, the distinction has become a dubious one – with its own title, “The Madden Curse.” It bit Shaun Alexander in 2007, when the NFL’s MVP from 2005 broke his left foot in the third game of the season. Others who have tasted the bittersweet that followed obvious success: Eddie George (2001), Daunte Culpepper (2002), Marshall Faulk (2003), Michael Vick (2004), Ray Lewis (2005), Donovan McNabb (2006), Vince Young (2008) and, last season, Peyton Hillis.

So, you can vote for Lynch and Thomas here. Or if you feeling superstitious, you can vote for players from other teams.
