Peyton Hillis Set to Stiff Arm the Madden Curse into Oblivion

As championed and predicted by yours truly, Peyton Hillis, affectionately known as the NFL's Chuck Norris (I'm still claiming I started that) is on the cover of EA Sports' Madden 12.

Now, plenty of Cleveland Browns and Peyton Hillis fans are a bit worried about the prospect of their favorite bruising runner bringing the notorious "Madden Curse" to a city and a franchise that needs no part of curses right now.

All I have to say to such fans is this: Do you not understand the physical and emotional ferocity of the beast in Cleveland's backfield?

When Chuck Norris goes to bed at night, he checks his closet for Peyton Hillis.

Peyton Hillis can't fly. Gravity just looks the other way when he leaves the ground.

Peyton Hillis is the reason Bigfoot is always hiding.

Surely someone this fearsome has no reason to worry about a silly video game curse.  And you shouldn't worry either.

Hillis will be going through, over and around defenders in the same way he did last year and the Cleveland Browns could surprise some people this season.
