Yeah, that was not good. He had a killer half before that.

Hopefully, it stops here. I've got Fitzgerald in one of my leagues and I'm counting on him.

The madden curse is real, every player thats been on the cover has had either an injury or a sudden drop in performance look at the names:

Sanders (retired), George (sudden drop off), Culpepper(Sudden drop off), Faulk (injury and sudden drop off), Vick (injured + the beginning of the end of his career), Ray Lewis (mild drop off but this was the year he looked terrible and got run over by Brian Waters on a Monday night game), McNabb (injury, in fact 2 bad injuries), Shaun Alexander (Injury and then sudden drop off), Young (injury + poor year, regressed), Favre (was supposed to be retired, so doesn't really count, other than that, a mediocre year for him)...

Lewis had his two "off" years under the curse, and the only other outlier is Favre if he even counts since they picked him specifically to avoid the "curse"... and he didn't exactly have a stellar season either.

oh edit: add Garrison Hearst and Dorsey Levens, both of whom fell off their game after the curse.

I would say the curse has had some pretty ridiculous effects.

They're calling it an MCL (sprain) injury, but could be worse!


Orton's injury seemed pretty serious, if you ask me.....






NHHHHAAATTTTT

The video was kinda funny but Orton's injury was pretty gruesome. Imagine something like that happening to you at work. I'd take time off. Probably quite a while.

Yeah, lol. I am Spanish but the racial slur does not bother me one bit; in fact, among our friends, we use it all the time to refer to one another. And of course, I love my broncos. I used to have another name here but the mods never let me activate my account so I had to come up with a new name.

Same thing happened to me. Ironically - though I am white my original name was The Infamous El Guapo. Maybe there is a conspiracy against activating Latino sounding names. :~ohyah!:

He was hedging his bet in case we landed Mark Sanchez.

HAHAHA! NO! I had told all of my friends that if the broncos drafted Mark "the beaner" Sanchez, I would cut off my "huevos rancheros"! I hate that bastard, unfortunately I live in Jersey so I have to hear about him every freaking weekend and how he has "I, T, IT"

Weird...he didn't even look that hurt. When he went into the locker room before the half, he walked up about 10 stairs on his own without help. Nobody assisting him under his arm, no cart.

Probably a minor tear or bad strain of the ligaments, PCL or MCL or maybe both. Knees aren't supposed to bend sideways.
But watching the replay it wasn't really badly bent, about 10 degrees. Could have been a lot worse if he hadn't already been on his way to the turf or had his cleat planted.

Still its going to hurt, and he could have a serious tear. MRI before anyone knows much. I'd guess bad strain and 4-6 weeks , just cause he's a tough SOB.

Hope he gets back in after that.
