I always prefer it out of the media spotlight, but I don't mind Sherman chirping a bit. Better on the field, and fine off it as long as nothing to stupid gets said.

And honestly I thought his tweets were awesome!

I love the smack and energy he beings to the field, but I do agree with the idea that he needs to dial it back a bit and still stay humble, although I know thats not his personality lol.

Let Sherm be Sherm. He is at his best when he is running his mouth. It was worse last year, because he didn't keep himself in check during the game, and was called multiple times for penalties after plays. This year, he is keeping his anger controlled, and playing clean football. A good example of this was the Carolina game, against Steve Smith. Sherm gets under people's skin, and backs it up with SOLID cornerback play. There is little anyone can do to stop either one.

I fully support Sherman's attitude.

I like it too, he was trying to get into Brady's head and it probably worked.

Seattle hasn't had a trash talking get into your head take you off of your game guy since Gary Payton.

Can't knock Sherman for feeling vindicated with the way it all came down.
Brady was put in his place for shooting off his mouth, good for Richard, bad for Tommy.

I like it quite frankly...brady was the one talking as well...that's why his head was low in that picture. Nothin to say

This is the attitude of the team and the nation will notice now!!

Someone said on KJR, that Sherman is "Gary Payton with shoulder pads."

Perfect analogy!

For the record, I have no problem with Brady coming in with a little cockiness and attitude and rebutting the smack talk during the game. He generally can back it up and has the history to prove it. I just think that as long as you can talk a little smack and keep the overall tone, basically respectful (at least not disrespectful) then I have no issue with it.

So let me get this straight,

Tom Brady saying he is going to come in here and make our fans boo our own team = Totally okay
Tom Brady saying "come see me after this game after we win" = Totally okay
That Scumbag Hernandez grabbing Chancellor's face mask after a catch while he is on the ground and trash talking = okay
Patriots claiming we pump noise in and our crowd isn't really that loud = completely okay, probably true
but
Richard Sherman gets a big pick, talks to Brady AFTER THE GAME like "you wanted to see us?" = DISRESPECTFUL

this is why we lose (no not cause we don't talk enough) but because people are so vaginal that they think the hawks don't have a right to talk about nothing ever, we can't talk back even when we win. I bet there are some people in here who think we got lucky. Every key to the game on here is how we hope the other team blows it, our fearless predictions are usually always against us unless its a god awful team we are playing.

you have a good chance to beat any team in the league right now, and no its not any given sunday, its THE HAWKS ARE FREAKING GOOD on sunday, monday, thursday, anyday.

expect to win.
it is not impossible to think we will run the damned table.

This defense just beat, Tony Romo, Aaron Rogers, Cam Newton, and Tom freaking Brady.
In every game the other team somehow lost on their bye week according to national media,

I'd be talking trash to.

I don't think anything Sherman said was wrong. Now if he is still talking about this game tomorrow or later today then thats when Pete has to remind him that "umm niners thursday Rich" but until then KEEP TALKING.

this guy is "primetime" approved, you'd think he'd keep his mouth shut?

Sherm's smack talk is bigger than just getting in Brady's face. It's getting in EVERYONE'S face. Hawks have not been respected by anyone this year, even when we had the #1 defense and the #1 rusher, we were still underdogs in our own house, we were still labeled "pretenders" by the national media talking heads. And even little talking heads who said good things about us we shit on by the BIG talking heads for being delusional. Then Brady comes out with all this "turn the 12th man against the Seahawks" and "come talk to me after we beat you" crap talk. More disrespect. Sherm's tired of being disrespected, as is the rest of the team and the 12th man. Sherm's tude and swagger is helping transform this team from a doormat "nice guy" Tim Ruskell team into a punch you in the face, take your lunch, eat it in front of you and feed you the garbage group of bad asses.

I love that! Thanks for the Swagger Sherm. don't ever change!

As our young players transition to veterans, their personalities will come forward. Pete may talk with Richard to try to cap any bulletin board material, but in the end Sherman would not be the first DB to run off at the mouth. I like the "walk softly and carry a big stick" type approach to shutting folks up but in this hype-driven league, those who feel they aren't getting any generate their own.

If Sherman didn't play for the Seahawks, I probably would just consider him a jackass, but he is a Seahawk so I just accept him, warts and all.

Brady does talk crap, so it isn't like he doesn't like mixing it up. It should have stayed on the field in my opinion but Sherman chose not to keep it there. To the victor goes the spoils I gather.


I agree completely.

I dont recall him publicly trash talking Romo, Newton, Kolb, Rodgers, Bradford.
Brady must have done something to really get under his skin.

Tone it down? Bleh. Brady didn't show us any respect either. We're a team of competitors and we have swagger. Sherm has swagger in spades and I love it. We've been missing that "Don't f*** with us" attitude for a long time and it's back.

Exactly...he's a lot smarter about his trash talking. He seems to have grown and obviously cares a lot about this team and the fans.

A sure sign of his growth was in practice when Lane, I think, lost his cool and tried to fight, Sherm snatched him up and talked to him.

And that goes for every other team, player, coach in the NFL. Gary Payton is one of my all-time favorite sports figures and our defense seems to have that GP Mentality.

Don't apologize for it, KEEP IT UP!

He called the Pats a "gimick" offense. That's not true at all and sounds kind of dumb after he just dropped 400 yards on you.

Football games are won on points, not yards.
Just like baseball games are won on runs, not hits.
That gimick offense went 1 for 6 in the redzone, maybe because the gimicks it uses are only effective against the Seahawks between the 20's.

I get the feeling that some Seahawks fans were more comfortable with the nice guys, soft guys, that did public service announcements for milk back in the Zorn/Largent days. :p

Thanks fellas. I've been needing a pick me up. The past while has really sucked. I just wanted to thank you for your kind words. I kind of went off a little today, but it felt good to mix it up a bit. :) I really appreciate your kind words. You both made my day!

I have missed this kind of trash talk on any Seattle team since the Glove! Love it
Maybe too much Ruskell nice guy stuffed down my face but these boys BACK IT UP! I think it plays a big role in how opponents play against us and seems to be effective
...And Jerramy Stevens doesn't count :roll:

I just have a few posts so far, (so take this with the "new guy" grain of salt)... I have a lot of respect for Brady and the Pats but I love what I am seeing from this Hawks team. The comparison to Gary P is pretty right on. Sherm is doing a great job and so he called brady out on his disrespect. Personally, I love seeing our team show some passion and care as much about other teams (and even network commentators) dissing our city as much as us fans do. Pretty funny hearing him call him the Brady Bunch, LOL. ...as long as we can back it up. At the end of the day, we win this one and on to the next one. I doubt any more quarterbacks will tell this defense to "come see him after they win" this year.

But why isn't anyone talking about the real person who should "tone it down" and come back to reality...? Is this a designer bathrobe Tom is wearing???

Brady's response today:

Quote:
"(Sherman's) a very good player, and I have a lot of respect for that defense and certainly that secondary," Brady told Jim Gray on Dial Global Sports, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. "They play very well together. My dad taught me at a young age to play with class and respect and give my opponents respect, and certainly I have a lot of respect for the Seahawks."

NO. There is no need for him to tone anything down. He is being the voice of this team and the 12th Man, he is saying what we have all been saying/thinking all along! We all want to tell the networks how we are tired of their crap, but that's not going to happen. From here on out I say we call him Richard THE VOICE Sherman! Be yourself Sherm and thanks for having your team and the 12th Mans back!

@ the OP. What if the trash talk is what baited Tom into challenging Sherman and led to that interception? Then is it a bad idea or weak sauce?

Sherman is smart. He's not flappin' his gums just to make noise. Man knows EXACTLY what he is doing. Like one of the KJR guys said today, he's the "spokesman" for this secondary. While they all play heads-up, smash-mouth, chip-on-the-shoulder, TEAM football, Sherman is simply the extrovert of the group. He's just saying what they (and many of us) are thinking. Personally, I couldn't think of a better voice to fit the attitude and play of our defense.

I'm with you and not the OP. We have a very tough defense that is feelin it, let the other team know it and there are people that think we need to tone it down a little bit. Let me guess, youre a Sounders fan.

Who remembers when George Karl let Gary go 1 on 1 w/ Jordan in the 96 finals? Gary shut Jordan down that game, got in his head, and it lead to a Sonics win. Richard Sherman just pulled a Gary Payton on the Jordan of the NFL. He's got every right to talk about it. Richard Sherman is the best player in the NFL that the majority of fans have never heard of. They're going to hear a lot more about him every week from here on out. Mission accomplished IMO.

That gimick offense went 1 for 6 in the redzone, maybe because the gimicks it uses are only effective against the Seahawks between the 20's.



What makes it a gimmick?[/quote]

The gimmick is to exploit the short dink and dunk crap. It's totally a gimmick. Not saying it doesn't work, hell, that's what gimmicks are for. And if you trick the other team into cheating up to stop the gimmick, you get burned long like ET did. Sherman is 100% right on this one.

I disagree with the op. Tom talked trash and got it back. Nuff said.

Interesting Read... http://espn.go.com/blog/nfcwest/post/_/ ... rmans-talk

Seems like former players turned analysts are okay with Sherman's talk...so I'm assuming we should be just fine with it as well...moving on.

I agree. I love the attitude but I hope he settles down just a bit. We could still go 4-12 and then he'd look really silly.

Not that I think we're gonna go 4-12, I'm just sayin.


Um, he wouldn't look silly. He trashed the guy that trashed him and Earl and the 12th Man. The other games don't come into play for this.

Sherman was on NFLAM this morning as well. Above is a link to the article and video of his appearance. Seems like most people are having some fun with it.

I love the part of the video where he gets to tell them about how they felt about their Pretenders/Contenders segment last week calling the Seahawks Pretenders

I don't care, all I know is if you are going to talk you gotta back it up. I like being the aggressor.

Yep, I know in those times in my "sporting life" where I've talked a lot of shit going into a contest, I've worked extra hard to make sure I don't look like a total asshat for saying what I said. If that's what Sherman needs to do to play at the peak of his potential, then I'm all for it.

Didn't think this was such a big deal when I first read about it. A few days later, both brady and sherm have said the right things. Just keep on getting picks.

The Hawks went on the radar Sunday. It’s sad to say but one of the primary reasons was Sherm talking smack. The media is starting to love them, part of that is SWAG. If they keep it up (and it appears they will) come Friday morning the world is going to know what we know.

welcome to primetime :snack:

Agreed. I did note that Sherm apparently took down the "U mad bro?" pic he tweeted Sunday night, and I am assuming that PC said that was a little too far. That is fine with me. It is also fine with me that Sherm is talking it up before, during and after our games - and most importantly backing that talk up. I freaking love this Defense, I love this team, IMHO it has NEVER BEEN BETTER TO BE A SEAHAWK FAN!!!! (Talk all you want about 2005, it wasn't nearly as fun for me because it wasn't the type of football I wanted to see us play.)

Deion Branch was talking ish after the game and his team LOST. Why don't the Pats fans and national media tell him to tone it down? Branch hasn't done crap his whole career aside from one freaking game. Most overrated player in NFL history.
