The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback, who has been a victim of the Campbells Chunky Soup Curse, is now under the Madden Curse.
This year, McNabb graces the cover of the football video game, Madden NFL, which each year features one prominent player on the games cover.
Appearing on the cover is said to bring on consecutive weeks of injury with Daunte Culpepper, Michael Vick and Marshall Faulk, who have appeared on previous editions and been injured shortly after, cited as proof.
McNabbs so-called honor is worrying a lot of people including oddsmakers such as sportsinteraction.com, a sports betting website, which is giving 2 to 1 odds that McNabb will miss one to four weeks due to injury this season and 5 to 1 odds he will miss five to nine games.
Meanwhile, Bodog.com is giving even odds that McNabb will miss more than one consecutive game in a row due to injury.
