Get elected to the Pro Bowl. Check. Win the Super Bowl. Check. Get paid. Check.  And now the cherry on top, become Madden NFL's cover athlete. Check. The only thing Richard Sherman might not currently have is a friendship with 49ers' wide receiver Michael Crabtree.

After this year's NFC Championship game, we know Richard Sherman believes he is the best cornerback in the NFL. One thing we know Richard Sherman doesn't believe in is curses. After beating out Cam Newton to claim his spot on the cover of "Madden 15", Sherman of course was asked the inevitable, what his thoughts were on the famous urban legend: "The Madden Curse".  

He then responded in typical Richard Sherman fashion, by stating, "I don't believe in curses". I bet that's what Dante Culpepper, Shaun Alexander, and Peyton Hillis were thinking aswell.  Only time will tell with this one.

Richard Sherman is known around the league for having a big mouth, but also the talent to back it up. If there was ever a time for Sherman to back up his talk, it would be now. Although  there's really nowhere Sherman can improve from last season, just maintaining his pace would be historic.

Rated one of TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people, Sherman really knows how to strike a cord with people. He's the type of player you either love, or hate, but you'll still follow him regardless of your feelings towards him.  

So this brings us to the big question, since there is a big difference between confidence and cockiness, which of these qualities do you think Richard Sherman displays? You're call, comment you're answer below.
