John Madden Hates Players With Long Hair, Plans On Cursing Polamalu And Fitzgerald
The names being thrown around right now are Super Bowl opponents Larry Fitzgerald of the Cardinals, and the Pittsburgh Steelers' Troy Polamalu.
This wouldn't really surprise me at all. Polamalu has long been one of the faces of the Steelers defense, and Fitzgerald's popularity skyrocketed during last year's postseason. And if they are planning on someday using 2 players for the cover, it would make sense on many levels to use these two.
1) The Super Bowl connection. These guys obviously played against each other in the Super Bowl, and were some of the best players on their respective teams.
2) Their hair. While it's not a huge deal at all, they are two guys in the NFL who are known for their long locks. Polamalu's curls and Fitzgerald's dreads have been made legendary among fans.
3) Their positions. This isn't like 2 QB's or something, where they only play against each other in the figurative sense. These two guys literally play against each other. Think about the commercials that could be made featuring two guys who have actually played on the field against each other and have actually made plays against each other.
We'll find out on April 24 whether or not it actually happens. Any thoughts on this latest speculation? Who would you like to see honored with the cover? Or who would you like to see cursed? Give us your thoughts.
