Now for those of you that are old enough to remember the Madden jinx, today should be a day that you rejoice that both Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes have found their way to the cover of Madden 22. If you believe in the Madden jinx and you’re a fan of any other team then you should drop EA Sports a note thanking them for leveling out the playing field for the upcoming season.
The reality is Bills fans from around the country breathed a huge sigh of relief today when the new cover in no way made a reference to Josh Allen.
Brady and Mahomes Comment
“Whenever you first get on the cover, that’s a special moment,” Mahomes told ESPN. “So to be on it again, twice, with an all-time great like Tom Brady, it’s a special moment that I’m glad that I’m able to do so soon after I had done it the first time.
“I’ll be able to have it for the rest of my life and be able to show my kids and my kids’ kids that I was on it two times.”
“To think that now, almost 30 years later, 25 years later, since the mid-’90s, here I am representing EA on the cover of Madden with one of the other great players in the NFL right now,” Brady told ESPN. “And just thinking how fortunate I’ve become over the years to put myself in this position to have these experiences in my life that I’m very grateful for.
“So it’s a really cool thing. It’s definitely a huge honor, and getting to do it with Patrick and the career he’s had has been exceptional.”
