Gotta love having board stalkers that look at my every move I make on this board.
He didn't do anything but prove his idiocy with the fact that he thinks an old worn out player is better than a younger one. Kind of like the fact he thinks the 49'ers are a team on the upswing despite being full of old rejects and busts.

This is absolutely AWESOME! EA Sports finally makes amends for not having Vince Young on the cover of NCAA 2007.
For all those "Madden Curse" people out there, the only other player not to be affected by the "Madden Curse" was Eddie George, who at the time was a Titan, and ended up having his best statistical year of his career that year.
Also, Vince Young has already defeated a much more substantial and long-lasting curse in the Sports Illustrated cover curse where people have literally died days after being on the cover.
