Brady on cover of Madden 18… Noooooooooooooo!

A high number of athletes featured on the cover of Madden have had mysteriously bad seasons and/or injuries. Put Tom Brady in bubble wrap ASAP and put Dante Scarnecchia, the Patriots' offensive line coach, on high alert: Brady is not to be touched this season!

Another (conspiracy theory) thought… I think the NFL was trying to box out the Patriots last year by getting Gronk on the Madden cover and upholding Brady's suspension, and it backfired with the Pats winning the Super Bowl. So they are taking another crack at the dynasty with TB12 on the Madden cover!
