Richard Sherman is the best corner back in the game, one of the most dynamic players in the league and one of the most emotional, energetic players in the NFL.
So how does EA Sports represent the Seahawks corner on the cover of the new video game Madden NFL 15?
They put him in a strange looking pose with a fierce face that just doesn’t quite match.
Sherman’s right hand sticks out like he is using Darth Vader’s choke hand to stop receivers, rather than using his ridiculous coverage skill.
Yahoo! Games reported that “Amazon, GameStop and other retailers leaked the game’s box art in advance of EA’s official release” and that EA confirmed “this is the official art for the upcoming football game, due out August 26th.”
There are many great pictures of Sherman doing Sherman-like things.
A pose similar to this one might have looked better:
Actually, it would have been awesome if the cover was a photo of the “Immaculate Deflection.”
Then again, 49ers fans might not buy the game with that scene on the cover.
It just seems as though Sherman was shammed of what could have been an awesome cover.
Sherman’s cover just looks kind of…plain.
Too plain, at least, for such an outspoken energetic player.
Sherman is the best corner in the game, but doesn’t have the best EA cover in the game, unfortunately.
