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.
Screw him. I hope the madden curse is more potent this time.
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!!
Maybe this time he finally gets suspended for adderall. ;D
Theres too much money in his controversy for him to get suspended
I am a Niners fan as well, and voted for Sherman. :)
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.
He said that looking like he was about to cry. Too funny
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
49ers fan????? Hey a brother :D
EA let us hold our 60$ for a roster update.
Cool. "Don't you ever tun yo mouth about the best"!
The curse is headed to the north west...
for the second time
oh yea......forgot about Shaun Alexander had that great year.....got a huge contract.....then got the cover......then was out of the league like 2 years later...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
One more reason not to buy Madden 15.
fingers crossed for the madden curse this year
Sherman... Meet the Curse.
I rather find out who's going to be on the cover of NFL 2K16.
Knew he was gonna win when the brackets were first announced. Just won $10 from betting my friend.
i have just grown to not really care who goes on the cover really. i rather worry about whether the actual game gets any better to be honest.
As long as the curse doesn't come to MY team...I'm good. Thank goodness KC is a small market. Jamaal Charles didn't stand a chance! LOL
