All I hear is that Sherman is the clear cut #1 cornerback in the NFL. But what makes him so much better than Charles Tillman? Is he better?

Marshall abused Sherman, while Tillman nearly shut down Megatron. Tillman had more turnovers, tackles, stuffs, INT return yards, and TDs. Why do some people act like Tillman isn't even in the running for the best corner in the league?

Sherman provides better sound bites, therefore he's better according to the media.

And for what it's worth, when the players voted, Sherman was #50, Tillman #34.

Sherman is seen as better amongst most fans for 2 reasons…

1. Sherman has a real big mouth and draws attention to himself so people can see that he is a quality player…Peanut has been a quality player for years but has carried himself with more class and dignity so it has taking casual fans longer to understand what every Chicago fan has known for years…he is an elite CB.

2. Casual fans think the Bears play nothing other than “Cover 2” and that Tillman is asked to do nothing more than drop into a zone and most think that is far easier than having to play man coverage…it’s an obvious misconception considering when Peanut has been asked to go man to man on a receiver he has won out far more than he has lost.

Bottom line is Tillman is every bit as good as Sherman…it’s just he doesn’t feel the need to jaw about it to anyone who will listen.

I understand why fans think that Sherman is so much better due to his outspoken nature, but it really is amazing how fans just blatantly ignore the stats. I'd also like to point out that Tillman had 2 penalties this year while Sherman had 6 and Tillman's longest play given up was 26 while Sherman's was 56.

Sad that this is true, but I think it's undeniable. Sherman is a good player for sure, but he's not the best corner in the league. I'm not sure he's even the best corner in the NFC West. With Revis now in the NFC and Tillman being a (finally) well known turnover machine Sherman probably starts the year as no more than the 3rd most likely CB to make the Pro Bowl, and they only take 3.

.


That sums it up. Tillman also never makes a scene like with Sherman getting in Brady's face after SEA won. That was on ESPN for a week and a half, and still popped up weekly it seemed.

People like controversy and that is exactly what Shermans mouth is.



I would still take Tillman over Sherman every day of the week. Only thing Sherman has on Tillman is age.

Today that's true. He certainly still has upside. He has only been a CB since his junior year at Stanford (2009).

Fans may think Sherman is better but according to the NFL top 100 player list, voted by the players Tillman ranked higher than sherman by 16 spots and was only outranked by PP. I don't know if that list is 100% by the players but I sure as hell agree with the fact that Peanut is better than that [inappropriate/removed] clown Richard Sherman.

Because the national media hates the Bears.
