Larry Fitzgerald

Troy Polamalu Hurt most of the year...

2009 Brett Favre 2008 3472 Yards, 22TD, 22 INT 9-7 3rd place Favre and the Jets started the season hot, but after Favre injured his throwing arm, the season collapsed quickly. Favre threw 6 less TD's and 7 more int's then in 2007. The Jets finished 9-7 after starting 8-3 and missed the playoffs.

2008 Vince Young 2007 2546 Yards, 9TD, 17 INT 10-6 3rd place Vince Young finished with 9 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, but completed 62% of his passes and Tennessee went 10-6, losing to the Chargers in the first round of the playoffs.

2007 Shaun Alexander 2006 896 Yards, 7 TD, 3.6 YPC 9-7 1st Place Shaun Alexander missed 6 regular season games with a broken foot.

2006 Donovan Mcnabb 2005 2507 Yards, 16 TD, 9 INT 6-10 4th place After week 9, Mcnabb suffered a hernia and was lost for the season.

2005 Ray Lewis 2004 147 Tak, 1 Sack 9-7 2nd Place Ray Lewis for the most part avoided the curse. His numbers were slightly down from the year before, but he missed one game. He did not record an interception in 2004, the first time in his career.

2004 Michael Vick 2003 585 Yards, 4 TD, 3 INT 5-11 4th Place Vick missed the first 11 games with a broken leg. Vick's QB rating, comp pct, and yards per attempt were all down from 2002.

2001 Eddie George 2000 403 Rush, 1509 Yds, 14 TD 13-3 1st Place George's curse came in 2001 where he failed to break 1000 yards and Tennessee missed the playoffs going 7-9.

2000 Barry Sanders 1999 Retired 8-8 3rd Place Sanders in pictured over Madden's left shoulder on the cover. Sanders abruptly retired in July before the start of the 1999 season.

1999 Garrison Hearst 1998 310 Rush, 1570 Yds, 7 TD 8-8 3rd Place Garrison Hearst was on select covers of Madden 1999. Hearst had an outstanding regular season, finishing third in rushing yards.
