That comment tells me you either don't understand the game or didn't watch the game..

 

he did virtually nothing all game - more like nothing really happened with him... b/c he was targeted twice.. once he got called on a ridiculous BS holding penalty.

the second time it was game over..

 

if you're a corner back and passes are never thrown your way, what can you do all game? NOT have anything happen IS a great game.  SF with 150 yards passing all game, and he did nothing?  geeeezzzz

That's OK.  No harm done.  (Thanks @jamo ) :)

 

But for the record, I didn't watch the game closely enough to notice how many times they threw Sherman's way.  All I was doing in that post was pointing out that the author of the article I linked said that.  Same thing I was saying in the follow up as well.  It was the author of that article (Sherman himself, I believe) who pointed out that they only threw his way a couple of times.

 

I'm just the messenger! :-P

 

One other thing about Sherman (heard it on the radio at lunch) is that, as you all may be able to guess is true of many a Stanford grad, he had a 4.2 GPA (I inferred they meant in high school) and got over 1400 on his SATs.  The point being, he is not dumb.  They compared him to Deion and Floyd Mayweather as the type of guy who knows when the camera is on and knows what to do when it is.  My opinion ... Just with that couple minute stretch at the end of the game yesterday, he raised the amount of publicity he will receive over the course of the next two weeks (and depending on performance, possibly beyond) exponentially.  I think if I was his publicist or agent right now, I would be looking at this differently ... as in, it was genius. ;)

Yah he's a bright guy.. extremely well spoken.. articulates his thoughts.. doesn't spew trash just to hype things.

 

And yah he can be a punk at times and that gets a bit annoying, but as a football player.. is there anyone who does NOT wish he was on your team? 


Legion of Boom!

 

Go Hawks!

Sorry but no excuses for Sherman.  It is Professional football, not MMA or Boxing.  Peyton Manning was the BEST QB in the NFL this year and other than a comment about a "liquored up kicker" a few years back (his own BTW), you have never heard him act this way.  Other players have been the best at their positions, and they don't act like this.  Sore losers are understandable at times, but sore winners?  Just bush league.  Now I am rooting for the Broncos to embarrass him.

It's rare that an undisciplined mouth doesn't eventually come back to haunt its owner.  I know that the first thing an experienced coach says in the first team meeting after earning a trip to the big game is to think carefully before you say anything, public or "private".  Somehow privacy seems to be an illusion when players start trash talking before the Super Bowl- such quotes always seem to end up posted on the other team's bulletin board.  You really don't want to give your opponent any added incentive through plain stupidity.

I don't mind Richard Sherman. He's doesn't like Skip Bayless, and that's enough for me. a3_biggrin.gif

I don't really care about the rest of your post (although I agree with it), but I'd just like to say that this is a great sentence. :)

I guess that means a lot of people are ok by you, if not liking Skip Bayless is enough!

I'm rooting for Decker or Welker to blow him up on a pick play.

You can't mean you want the Broncos to run an illegal play to try to intentionally injure him, do you? Because of some ill-chosen words he used after a game? Seems a little harsh, don't you think?

I hope your joking about intentionally injuring someone.

He's a great corner; I won't take that away from him. However, he gets away with a lot. Way too much in fact. If he can hold a receiver for 15 yards down the field, then I have no problem with offensive coordinators drawing up plays to "neutralize" him...:-P

I didn't say I wanted him to get injured and be out of the game. In fact, I think the game would be lacking if he went down early with an injury. But as Justin Verlander said on Twitter, if Sherman were a baseball player, he would get a fastball high and tight.
