Willis advances to the Madden Final Four

Apr 11, 2012 at 8:21 AM--


San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Patrick Willis has advanced to the Madden Final Four. The five-time Pro Bowler is in the hunt to be on the cover of the Madden 13 video game, which will be released prior to the start of the 2012 NFL season.

Along with the honor of being on the cover comes what many fans believe is a curse. More often than not, the featured player has sustained some type of setback, not always an injury.

The other three players in the Final Four bracket are Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton bested Larry Fitzgerald, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson.

Do you believe in the Madden curse? Do you want Willis on the cover or not? Leave your feedback below.
