Exactly! I was watching NFL Network when Charles Woodson was on the show. Willie McGinest and Woodson both chose Sherman as the best CB in the league. They both said he plays the game the way it's supposed to: with attitude and having fun while doing it. McGinest went even further and said Sherman always did things in retaliation and that he didn't really start anything.

Saw it on Twitter. Love Sherman man. He's living it up and having fun. I decided pretty early his jersey would be the first one I purchase but I haven't gotten around to it yet since I was a gifted a new Beast Mode jersey

Oh man, do I ever love this kid. He has never said anything wrong in my book. He plays like a beast and loves his team. I have mad respect for his charity work too. I hope he never leaves Seattle. My sister, who is a Lions fan, LOVES Sherm and his swag. She just ordered a 25 Sherman jersey. :th2thumbs:

Sherman has always maintain he got jobbed in the draft because he didn't get the hype and thus didn't have the rep needed to go higher in the draft. I believe Sherman is determined not to let that happen again, thus all the attention getting PR work he's doing.

Who was he respobding too when he wentvto the French Quarter Super Bowl week and asked random fans who was better shutdown corner?

When asked about WR's why not just say what a hreat WR he felt Julio was and leave it at that? Why go on a Roddy White ripping spree?

When asked about who the best CB is why not simply state "as a competitor I think I am but there are a lot of great ones out there" and leave it that.

I know half of you like the tired self promotion routine. To be honest with you I didn't have a problem with the post game against New England. He was emotional and said what he felt. On the flip side calling and showing up on NFL AM every other week and going on First Take proclaiming how great you are and looking somewhat delusional in the process is unnecessary.


He 'ripped' Roddy White after Roddy White ripped him on the field, then Roddy white TV 'ripped' him again...and if you have a problem with the Bourbon Street piece, I really don't know what to say other than cut back on the milk and toast. He was playing to the crowd that was saying he's not as good as Revis in a good natured way. :?

Roddys known to be a douche. Sherman only goes after those kinds. He's said before he's gone games without even talking to a receiver because he respects them and didn't have to play games with them

Richard Sherman and Gary Payton are two of my favorite Seattle athletes. If you can walk the walk.... What could be better than getting in the heads of the receivers you're about to play? As to his feud with Skip Bayless, he's not the first. In fact, his comments were mild by comparison.

A TNT on-set dialogue about Shaq’s Twitter battle beef "with Oklahoma City Thunder big man Kendrick Perkins" quickly turned into a discussion about Skip Bayless. And when Charles Barkley is involved, as he was Tuesday night, any mention of the noted ESPN contrarian has the potential to escalate quickly into fireworks. Barkley, you may recall, has never exactly been shy about his dislike for Bayless, who has been with ESPN full-time since 2004. In 2009, he called Bayless an "idiot" on The Jay Leno Show, and he’s referred to Bayless as "one of the two people [he'd] like to kill.” Barkley has also gone on record saying he hates the former San Jose Mercury News columnist "more than any person in the world." In 2011, Barkley referred to Bayless as "the biggest jackass in the history of journalism" and last year, he called him the "the biggest punk in the world." So, yeah, there’s no love lost there, and now we can add this one-liner to the list: “If I could get Skip Bayless in a room, you’d need DNA to find out who he was.”

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings, but Sherman has to talk the talk to walk the walk. If a good corner is quiet and doesn't get inside the heads of other coaches and quarterbacks around the league, they don't get targeted. They become Nnamdi Asomugha... A great corner for years that would never put up any stats because teams went away from throwing to him against the Raiders. He's our secondary's mouthpiece and teams are probably going to throw at him a lot less this year just because that's the smart thing to do, but if he starts getting in a receiver's head or a quarterback's head, he can get them to target him when they shouldn't and he's good enough at adjusting to the ball to make teams pay for that. Not to mention... His hands aren't to shabby.

The best part of this whole things is that old ass Jet Ski, i dont know why but that makes me laugh. Is that a Gaddy jersey that guy on the boat is wearing, if so he needs to throw that thing to the bottom of the Lake.

Five parts athleticism, four parts work ethic and one part psychology
well, for Sherman, maybe two.

The best defender in NBA history was also the leagues biggest talker and one of its most flamboyant off the field headaches. His mouth was his motivation, and he was able to back it up on the court.

Richard Serman is the Dennis Rodman of the NFL . . . Ad I'm fine with that.

That might be one of the worst comparisons I've ever heard of.

Dennis Rodman isn't in the conversation of greatest defenders of all time.

I'm sure I'm not the only one that thought he was really good from the "get go." When Browner, Thomas, and Chancellor made the trip to the Pro Bowl a couple years ago, I thought the best of the bunch, Sherman, was sitting at home. I knew he was special from the very beginning. I'm sure most of you felt that way as well.

How did he get so good, so quick? How does a lanky guy change direction well enough to stay with NFL receivers?

His long stride "make up" speed is deceptive, and he is excellent at intelligently baiting quarterbacks. His wingspan allows him to play the back shoulder fade better than any corner in the game. He will stick his head in there to make a stop on running plays. He gets in the head of opposing players. He is often in the right place at the right time (for example, the blocked field goal return against San Francisco)

I love his game. I love his attitude. I think he is the best in the business. A core player that they absolutely must extend when the time comes.

When you're right you're right and let me say. You're right and no worries, Sherman will be a Seahawk as long as he chooses, as long as he doesn't do a Revis that is.

It is just a guy stating his opinion. People shouldn't get all fussy just because he is bad mouthing Sherman. Get use to it, a lot more where that came from as that is the kind of attention Sherman will naturally draw with his extremely confident attitude.

I am sure if RS was on some other NFL team we would all be saying how he is way too cocky and is a liar/cheater blah blah blah.

He is the type of player that you love if he is on your team but more than likely can't stand if he is on someone elses because of how attitude/skill level.

I agree but the Glove didn't keep the world entranced with his off court antics like Worm does.

Sherman has stolen a page from Muhammed Ali marketing 101: Make half the population love him, the other half hate him and know that both sides will watch with equal interest.

Neither, the 16 million a year was a product of the Jets over pricing his rookie contract I am more talking about his penchant to holdout despite being signed to deals that are more than fair.

I see Sherman getting 14-15 million maybe slightly less because circumstances caused by the Jets gave Revis a unique position and the ability to get a contact that's an outlier even now.

Genius.


Mayweather is great at this as well


'Cept Sherm don't get to hand pick his opponent. ;)

Excellent point, just the same.

EDIT: I am and have always been a Mayweather hater. But if being fair, I shouldn't let that cloud my sensibilities. Mayweather doesn't do the hand picking he's oft accused of. There's just currently a glut of talent at his weight and he makes his money exploiting that fact. Too many legit reasons to hate on Floyd. No need to make things up. ;) I feel better now.

So the Bucs are paying him 16 mill bevause of the Jets rookie contract.? He will ask for the moon due too ego and I don't see us paying. I hope not. I like Sherm but not 12 mill a year like.

You're taking past me. Basically Revis is driven by pure ego and his entire self worth is predicated on being the highest paid at his position regardless. I don't know the numbers for what a CB that is arguably in a healthy Revis's zipcode so I guessed. That contact Tampa gave? Totally no risk for them and colossal blunder by Revis.

But you missed my point entirely I am not talking the money but the mindset Revis has.

Hope you guys don't think that Avril, Bennett, and Winnie just spontaneously signed up on the cheap when they saw all the spontaneous coverage that NFL network and ESPN was giving their darling team, the Seahawks.

His mouth made the networks talk about us. A lot of players aren't as well informed as fans and get their opinions off the media. Ergo, he may be setting himself up for a huge contract and a new team, but he helped put us on the FA map.

For that I am in Shermans debt.

Not true. Pretty sure the Seahawks have established a line not to cross.. so to say he can say anything he want's is false.

My second favorite Seahawk on the field besides Lynch. But Sherman is a punk. It was cute at first. The stupid clapping and taunting. Calling Tom Brady out, the Trent Williams thing, and of course the Skip Bayless thing, the Revis tape, etc. Just a punk. I'm over it. I'll watch and cheer as loudly as anybody, but when he opens his mouth I am no longer paying attention. It is embarrassing. That punk represents our team, fanbase, and city.

Yep. Richard Sherman - such a punk!

Listen, you go out on the field and play the way he plays

and then spend your free time doing charity work

and you're already an NFL all pro stanford graduate

please, run your mouth.

If anyone has earned the right to run it it's a guy like that. Sorry.

Tom Brady called out the entire team and all the fans in the Clink.

Trent Williams was an unprovoked attack after a tough game where Sherman was shaking hands and talking to a guy that earlier called him a "cheater".

Skip Bayless is Skip Bayless. Who hasn't wanted to verbally slap him upside his head.

The Revis thing was blown out of proportion, IMO, by Revis, himself. He didn't go after Sherman until the interview where Sherm said that Revis can't be considered the best RIGHT NOW, because he's injured and didn't play the whole season. When he comes back healthy, he"s definitely in the discussion. That's a compliment, not a jab or anything like that.

i agree with most of this post. And to be quite frank , i think this whole argument shows the diversity in age on this board... Us older guys, don't like the off field antics, younger guys have no problem with it.. IMO it's a direct reflection in today's society..

i'm from the old school , let your play do the talking, if challenged off field, then reply, but do it with professionalism and grace..

I don't understand why people get so defensive over players here, it's not like any of us know the man personally...

I know Sherman's a good guy off the field, i know what he brings to the team on the field, and i appreciate it whole heartedly.

i do not however like his off field antics, doesn't mean i don't like him, or appreciate him.. He's a Seahawk, he's my guy..

Having said that, if he played for another team, i would not be a fan.. i would acknowledge his abilities , but that's as far as it would go..

"Earned the right" to run your mouth and act like an arse. Splendid.

Sherm reminds me of The Glove. And look where Gary is now.
