Barry Sanders voted to Madden cover

In the latest piece of evidence indicating that video game football is not exactly a reflection of reality, Barry Sanders became the second straight Detroit Lion to be named to the Madden cover on Wednesday. Calvin Johnson won the honor last year, and actually broke the “Madden Curse” by having the most productive season by a wide receiver in NFL history. (Unless you consider the fact the Lions missed the playoffs to be a continuation of the curse).
