Cam Newton loses Madden cover vote to Richard Sherman

Friday was the day in which we would hear the final voting results of the Madden 15 cover vote. The 2 final candidates were Seattle Seahawks corner-back Richard Sherman and Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton.

After winning the voting, Richard Sherman had a few things to say. “Winning the cover is a kid’s dream come true, I would never be in the position without my fellow Legion of Boom members and teammates.”

Sherman took a lot of heat after his infamous interview with FOX’s Erin Andrews after the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers, in which he proclaimed he was the best corner-back in the NFL, and 49ers WR Michael Crabtree was just “mediocre.”

We all know about the Madden cover jinx, so lets see if this affects Richard Sherman. That is the reason I was glad Cam Newton did not win it.

With this being a Charlotte Hornets fan site, I assume a lot of us are Carolina Panthers fans as well, as they are in the same city. But what do you think? If you are a Panthers fan, would you want to see Cam Newton on the cover? Is the jinx real?
