Seahawks Send Message with Impressive Win: Richard Sherman Would Like to Elaborate

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman

The Seahawks made a big statement on the field Sunday with a 29-3 victory over the 49ers, but outspoken cornerback Richard Sherman had his own post game statements to make. Sherman felt those who picked San Francisco to win Sunday’s game disrespected the Seahawks and he wanted everyone to know about it. He got his chance in a post game interview where he told Michelle Tafoya ” There are a lot of pundits and ignorant idiots who thought, ‘ Oh the Seahawks are gonna lose this game’. Well, please, please don’t doubt us again. Every time they doubt us, you look stupid”. While stifling coverage of top wide receivers is one of Sherman’s strong suits, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that humility is not. He went on to say that the Seahawks are “on another level” and accused 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh of ignoring him after the game. All of this cocky bravado made Richard Sherman a hot topic of NFL discussions this week. Just the way he likes it.

Love him or hate him, you can’t argue his talent. Sherman is a leader on perhaps the best defense in the NFL. He showed up for last week’s division battle in a big way, shutting down Anquan Boldin and recording 2 tackles and an interception. His performance earned him NBC’s Sunday Night Football Player of the Game ball, as well as NFC defensive player of the week honors. Maybe Sherman and his defense are gaining that respect he demanded from the “pundits” and “ignorant idiots”, or maybe Sherman is getting ahead of himself too early in the season. The Seahawks still have to prove that they can get over the road struggles they had last year, and one of those road games will be in San Francisco. Either way, the Seahawks defense is looking like a unit no one wants to face, and we all want to hear what Richard Sherman will next.

I grew up in a military family, so we moved around a lot. It makes it hard to really say where I’m from. But there was never any question as to what sports teams I would be a fan of. My father was born and raised in Boston and is a sports fanatic. I remember growing up watching the Celtics, Bruins, Patriots, and Red Sox with him all the time. I really developed a love for sports, especially football! Now, I live in Seattle, where I am finishing up a communications degree. I am pursuing a career in sports broadcasting. I have been lucky enough to do a couple of amazing internships in Colorado where I got to interview the Air Force Football team, attend Bronco games and press conferences, and co-host a weekly Monday Night Football pre-game radio show. I have really grown to love the football fan culture here. They know their stuff, and support the Seahawks no matter what! While, I will always be a Patriots fan, I am rooting for the Seahawks. I think they have a very talented young team and I am excited and eager to follow them.

  1. This is the right web site for anyone who really wants
    to understand this topic. You know so much its almost
    hard to argue with you (not that I really would want to…HaHa).
    You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic that has been discussed for years.
    Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

  2. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  3. Don’t listen to all the negative comments. You are entitled to your feelings and spoke out in the heat of the moment; we’ve all done it sometime in our lives.
    You’re a GREAT player and we’re so happy to have you here in Seattle.
    Show them how its done at the Super Bowl. We’ve got your back!
