Brett Favre named as Madden 2009 cover person. This is the first time Madden NFL video game has a retired player on the cover.

Does Madden know something everyone else does not? I.e Brett Favre RETURNS?

Or could they not find any great player to adorn the cover due to the infamous Madden Curse? In which the player is cursed by a sub par season or injury or both after appearing on the cover of Madden NFL.

NFL Schedule to be released Tuesday 15 April at 2 PM

Anyone else find it weird that the NFL is releasing their 2008 Schedule on April 15th (tax day)?

Tune in to NFL Network at 2 PM for the "release" show. Sponsored by GMC I think.
