I didn't know anything about a SI cover jinx! I read it on Si.com and the canalstreetchronicles.com and was a lil surprised. I knew about the madden jinx but not the SI one. Is this just new to me or did u guys already know about it? I know that I'm superstious and it maybe just me being a lil nervous and with Reggie on the cover...:no: SI.com cover.jpg

If people are so worried about a jinx, why keep posting about them and making it widely known?

The Madden Jinx is about injuries. The SI Jinx is about the team losing the game the following week after being on the cover.

You guys gotta get it straight.

A weekly sports magazine is going to have a lot of covers. And it stands to reason that a lot of the people on those covers are going to lose and/or encounter some sort of adversity the next week. There is no jinx, it's simply the law of averages.

So far this football season they've featured the following players on the cover of Sports Illustrated:

Adrian Peterson on 9/21/09. The following week the Vikings beat the 49ers.

Daniel Graham on 10/12/09. The following week the Broncos beat the Chargers.

So this 'jinx' isn't really proving true this season.

Yeah. The only trend I see for this season, spacifically, is that the featured teams' opponents are 'jinxed' with a loss. Too bad for the falclowns!
