Sherman Wins Madden 15 Cover Fan Vote

Streeter Lecka

Newton can thank Ron Rivera for voting for Seahawks CB Richard Sherman, as well as a few other million fans I imagine.

Sherman was surprisingly humble about winning the fan poll given his propensity for brashness:

Richard Sherman will grace cover of 'Madden 15' - NFL.com
"It's an unbelievable experience. It's something you've always dreamed about as a little kid. Something you never expect to happen," Sherman said shortly after he was awarded the cover. "It's a humbling experience to do it in front of all these great people, and do it for the city of Seattle. It's fantastic."

It's been a heck of a season for Sherman:

After winning the Super Bowl with the Seahawks, getting a shout out from President Obama and signing a monster contract extension, the star cornerback can add yet another accolade to his mantle: Madden 15 cover athlete.

If there truly is a Madden Curse then Panther fans need not worry about it affecting our star QB.

Rather than a fan vote I like the suggestion that the top two players should instead play a game of Madden for the right to grace the cover. You could make a TV special out of it and get a lot for press for the video game. Well if it was up to me that's what I would do. In that scenario Newton and is 'Official' thumbs would destroy Sherman! (Just a guess but the word is Newton is pretty good though I think he lost to Calvin Johnson)
