It’s a nice honor to grace the "Madden 15" video game cover, but superstitious Seattle Seahawks fans who believe in the curse associated with the cover winner probably wish someone other than Richard Sherman had won.

Since players first starting appearing on the cover of the video game in 2000, a lot of bad things have happened to the man selected.

Sherman isn’t buying it.

“I don’t believe in curses,” he said. “I believe in God.”

I’m not one to believe in a jinx or curse, either, but the evidence speaks for itself. Call it a strange coincidence or bad luck.

Barry Sanders surprisingly retired the year he was on the cover. Green Bay running back Dorsey Levens was added to later covers that year, but he injured a knee that season and played in only five games.

Minnesota quarterback Dante Culpepper suffered a season-ending injury after appearing on the cover.

Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick was the cover player for the 2004 version. Do I even need to explain this one?

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb mocked the curse the year he was on the cover, saying it “might be a trend, but I don’t believe in the curse at all.”

In the first game that season, McNabb suffered a hernia and groin pull, eventually having surgery that ended his season.
