Tom Brady on Sports Illustrated Cover for 12th time

Do you believe in the Sports Illustrated curse? If so, you’re not going to be happy with the next story.

With a big game coming up this week against the 0-1 Jets, things couldn’t be going better for the Patriots. They looked great in all phases of the game during a Week 1 win over the Bengals, and the Jets’ offense was pitiful in a Week 1 loss against the Ravens. Tom Brady escaped a serious car accident unscathed, and signed the richest per-year deal in NFL history. What could go wrong now?

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady appeared on the Sports Illustrated cover this week for the 12th time in his career, tying Joe Montana for the most covers all-time for an NFL player.

With Brady clearly on top of his game and completely healed from a devastating knee injury in 2008, it would appear that the curse won’t apply with No. 12 this week. Only time will tell…
