While I can't speak of what he's done off the field (heard bits here and there but don't keep up with NFL), I think it's an interesting choice since I don't see defensive players getting that sort of honor often.

mikeslemonade2506d ago

Screw him. I hope the madden curse is more potent this time.

Back-to-Back2505d ago

In short: Act like an ignorant asshole on TV and get rewarded with the Madden cover. America thrives off controversy.

As a 49er fan i am extremely happy the curse has reached richard sherman. AWESOME!!

TOTSUKO2506d ago

Maybe this time he finally gets suspended for adderall. ;D

SuperBlunt2506d ago

Theres too much money in his controversy for him to get suspended

Calvin_ISA2506d ago

I am a Niners fan as well, and voted for Sherman. :)

PrinceOfAllSaiyans2506d ago

That's the result you gon get when you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree ! Don't you ever talk about the best !

Lmao that was too funny.

OT:Congrats to the best CB in the NFL, hopefully the Madden curse doesn't happen to him, such a beast.

TOTSUKO2506d ago (Edited 2506d ago )

He said that looking like he was about to cry. Too funny

wsoutlaw872505d ago

revis is the best. Sherman hasnt reached the dominance revis has. No one even knew him before he opened his mouth. Its sad but say youre the best over and over and people start to believe it

The curse is headed to the north west...

90Supra2506d ago

oh yea......forgot about Shaun Alexander

had that great a huge contract.....then got the cover......then was out of the league like 2 years later...

StockpileTom2506d ago

He almost always is covering underneath in a zone, he really doesn't have to worry about the deep ball or worry about crossing the width of the field in coverage often.

I think the real superstar of that team is their safety, he really flies around out there and is always there to bail the corners and backers out. I recall a few times where Sherman was flat out beat by Kenny Stills but the safety gets over quickly to deliver the hit and separate the ball.

iceman062506d ago

I agree. Not saying that he sucks. BUT, the "on an island" thing really doesn't exist with the Seahawks. I can't really tell if he could be a lock down CB simply because the majority of time they are playing more zone and less press man coverage. Just makes me wonder what he would look like in another scheme.

JBSleek2506d ago

All corners get beat. Name a cornerback who doesn't get burned at some point? Revis, Patrick, Talib all have.

Now people fault him for the system he plays for which is kinda weird. Does he have to fly around the entire field? No yet numbers don't lie. 2-8 TD:INT Ratio. Also QB's don't target him. Production vs Productivity.

Dude makes plays. He is the best corner at the moment in the league.

StockpileTom2505d ago

No doubt, he is a playmaker for sure but I just think the safety play is allowing him to be more aggressive going after the ball.

When you have a tall corner like him you have to arc the ball higher and that extra time gives a great centerfield safety that extra step to make the hit.

JBSleek2505d ago

I do agree with you that is position isn't the same as say a Patrick yet look where Patrick was drafted and look where Sherman was.
