    I don't play video games at all. So is this curse similar to the SI cover curse for jinxing teams before the season?

    Here is a rundown of past events:

    2000 - Barry Sanders in background of cover....announces retirement before the season. New cover features Dorsey Levens - hampered with gimpy knee, GB fails to make playoffs after back-to-back Super Bowls.

    2001 - Eddie George - decent year, bobbles pass that is intercepted in season-ending divisional playoff game, the next season injuries lead to dismal year for George.

    2002 - Daunte Culpepper - knee injury, misses last 5 games, Vikings finish 5-11.

    2003 - Marshall Faulk - injures ankle, finished under 1,000 yds, Rams miss playoffs.

    2004 - Michael Vick - fractured right fibula, plays only 5 games, Falcons finish 5-11.

    2005 - Ray Lewis - no INTs for 1st time in career, misses last game due to injury & Ravens just miss playoffs. The next year Lewis tears right hamstring in 6th game and misses rest of season.

    2006 - Donovan McNabb - Sports hernia in week 1, misses final 7 games, Eagles finish in last place.

    2007 - Shaun Alexander - breaks left foot in week 3, misses 6 games. Never the same player after the injury.

    2008 - Vince Young - injury in week 5 causes Young to miss first game ever due to injury (including pros, college, high school and middle school).

    2009 - Brett Favre - injures throwing arm, Jets go 1-4 down the stretch and miss playoffs.

    2010: Troy Polamalu- while on a goodwill visit to a local elementary school contracted lice and had to shave that ridiculous hair.
