Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, July 31 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Richard Sherman Shares Top Cornerback Rating
EA Sports' Madden NFL 16 video game released its ratings for the top cornerbacks in the League yesterday and Seattle Seahawks cover man Richard Sherman is the top-ranked player at the position. It makes sense, as Sherman finished last season as one of three players rated 99 overall, the highest rating in the game (Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady were the others).
But there's a catch. Sherman shares the number-one-rated spot in this year's game with New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. The two players own a 97 overall rating to open the new season.
Digging into the ratings a bit, Sherman received a 92 in Man Coverage, a 99 in Zone Coverage, an 87 in Speed, a 99 in Play Recognition, a 99 in Press, and best-among-cornerbacks ratings of 85 Catching and 98 Jumping. Revis, on the other hand, received a 99 Man Coverage, 94 Zone Coverage, 88 Speed, 95 Play Recognition, and 87 Press. So if you're scoring at home, that means Sherman ranks above Revis in Zone Coverage, Play Recognition, Press, Catching, and Jumping.
Still, EA Sports is asking for your help to determine the best cornerback in the game, sending out this tweet on Thursday afternoon:
The newest installment of the Madden franchise is set for an Aug. 25 release.
