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 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    '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.

    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..

    well see that's the difference. When you can back it up, the "like an arse" part no longer applies. When your ass can cash the checks your mouth is writing then go for it. It's not like Sherman has targeted the innocent and defenseless with his mouth.

    I love how you point out the "Trent Williams thing" as evidence of Sherman being a punk. Which part of that incident bothered you? The part where an unprovoked goon in a helmet hit him in the face, or the part where he was being gracious toward other Redskins players immediately before it happened? When you mention this incident as a knock against Sherman then I can only assume you're just looking for a reason to either hate on him or get a rise out of people.

  • I love how you point out the "Trent Williams thing" as evidence of Sherman being a punk. Which part of that incident bothered you? The part where an unprovoked goon in a helmet hit him in the face, or the part where he was being gracious toward other Redskins players immediately before it happened? When you mention this incident as a knock against Sherman then I can only assume you're just looking for a reason to either hate on him or get a rise out of people.


    i fault Williams in the incident as well.. but let me ask you this.. was it necessary for Sherman to waive goodbye to the Fans, and tell them the hurry up and beat the traffic? Was that a classy act to you, or was it a bit out of line?

    Necessary? No. But you're asking the wrong guy. I've never disliked any player, on any team, in any sport for simply being brash. I enjoy that stuff. It adds personality to the game. Love the Deions, GPs and Garnetts of the sports world. I love watching a guy making a dagger play on the road and then putting his finger to his mouth to say "shhhh......" to the crowd. These are young men playing sports. There is no non-offensive gesture in the world that I would consider "out of line."

    Personally, I only dislike players who I consider dirty or whiny. I hated the Spurs for a good while because of Bruce Bowen (dirty) and Tim Duncan (whiny). Those guys are as superficially "professional" as it gets, but I always had way more respect for other players. I respect Brady, but the only time he gets on my nerves is when he whines for a flag any time a defender is within two feet of him. I actually like him more on those occasions when emotions get the best of him, and he does something like emphatically spike the ball to show up the other team.

  • but the game was over, he wasn't making any more plays, he just felt the need to rub it in the Redskins fans face for a bit... and you say that adds personality to the game.. Do you think you'd ever see GP or Deon do that? i don't.. Maybe Rodman, but we all know what a tool he is..

    I like Sherm too but that wasn't classy at all. Why stoop to their level? As much as I like Sherm I prefer he be more Browner. Its not him and I get it but he acts like a moron sometimes.

  • Don't even start to compare Sherm to the glove. Talking trash during the game to get in a players head is one thing. The intent is to disrupt and get a player or team off of their game. It was a huge part of my game personally as well. But there is a huge difference between trash talking and taunting. Sherman's antics are more TO than they are Payton/Jordan/Sanders. It is bush and, frankly, embarrassing.

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.


    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.


    Thats how I see it.

    Hyperbole anyone? We get it, you're over 60 and I'm not. Guess what? Our sensibilities are different so deal with it and understand you're in the minority. It happens you know? People age so I don't fault you that you dislike Sherman and don't understand his mindset or the total mind games he's using against his competition. To full effect I might add.:)

    Haha what a sad state when a post about class elicits this response.

    I love the ignorance. "I'm young, therefore I'm not expected to act with or understand the concept of class, leave that for you old folks. Deal with it!" Our future is in good hands.

    FWIW I'm nowhere close to old. I just choose to carry myself with class, and would prefer that those that represent our city do the same.

    I completely understand his mindset. I have competed at high levels, recently I might add. I am a marginal athlete that used my brain and mind games to get me most of the success I was able to have. Yet, I maintained respect for competition and those I competed against.

    The real issue is, is that this is growing. We would like to think he is going to start acting with more maturity, but how many of us believe that he will? At this pace, this is going to become a problem that effects our team. And when these kinds of things effect your team, they tend to come to a head at precisely the wrong time.

    Talk your trash, get your edge. But there is a line between getting an edge, and acting immature and becoming an embarrassment.

  • Why do you care so much about how much smack a football player talks? Especially one who backs it up? Seems like a lot of wasted energy. Is he doing something to you personally? Did he steal your lunch money or something? Is he some criminal that's out there getting arrested like a huge portion of the league? NO
    He's having some fun. :roll:

    It's called being OLD in mind/spirit and not understanding that talking smack while backing it up combined with being a graduate from a school few can even dream to enter and being a real and solid citizen IRL is beyond his comprehension. Long story short he doesn't understand or accept the mindset of people under 30.

    Keep on preaching I am sure any 49er fan will support his tripe along with Ruskell and Mora...since it seems he has issues with actual dirtbags on the field that are real people in for real world life.

    His attitude is exactly like my foster father. It took him to reach 70 or so to start taking sense and actually figure out that it's okay to accept people having fun is ok.

    The irony of this is that he thinks I am young. Ask Les I am far older then he assumes and we all know what assumption means......

    I'm not 60 either i'm not even close to 50 and i don't understand this logic at all.. I played organized sports my entire youth up through college, not too long ago, and i talked smack from time to time.. i get it , it's part of sports, but i stand by my statement, there's a classy way to do it , and there's a not so classy way not to do it.. There's a time for it, and there's a time to keep your mouth shut... To think that being a certain age prevents you from understanding the difference or someone can't comprehend Shermans mindset is the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard... And personally i don't understand why you and others assume just because we don't approve of some of his off field situations doesn't mean we don't like the guy.. We just feel he could tone it down a bit... He's still a seahawk, and we're still fans... So please just stop with this nonsense..

    Gary did do some of his talk off the court. IMHO, Gary did not have as big a stage that is there today with dozens of sports shows, the Internet, and social media. The other thing about "trash talking"...the media LOVES it! It gives them something to talk about.

    (On a side note, I found this quote funny from this NBA article:)
    In Seattle, Gary Payton was in perpetual danger of suffering a sprained jaw and larynx, sometimes jabbering even as he drove to the basket. Payton was so verbally inclined that he even trashed his own teammates, referring, for instance, to Sonics center Ervin Johnson as "Tragic Johnson."

    I don't think Sherm would ever trash a teammate.
