The fan voting for the Madden 15 cover is down to the final two: Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. One of these players will receive the honor and then pray like hell the Madden Curse takes a year off.
You can check out the full bracket here. Sherman has blown away his competition to the finals, while Newton has had a few squeakers.
It’s yet another example of how brilliant Sherman’s post-game screaming strategy was in retrospect. He’s gone from a relative unknown to an accomplished writer on multiple platforms, a well-compensated pitchman and has elevated to BFF status with both Obamas.
Voting ends on Friday, so go over there and cast your voice if you’re so inclined.
