Stay angry, Sherm. We need that intensity and fire for our Super Bowl run.

Here is my unpopular view of Sherman.

He is a hell of a player but I honestly wish he wouldn't be so bragadochous.

Just not my style. His play should,does, and will speak for itself. He takes away from his greatness at times with his look at me attitude.

Dude is great player, and a great team mate but I feel he hurts his perception with his mouth.

Unpopular view around here, I know.

This tweet smacks of someone who is still pissed about being snubbed.

Sherman "according to the numbers/the numbers don't lie." Translation - take your votes and shove them where the sun don't shine, my numbers do the talking.

Outstanding job, Sherman! And I completely disagree on the attitude, but not really for the reason most obvious. I think we do better with a number of very different characters on the team. He's a key part of that aspect of attitude our team needs to survive. Look at some of the leaders of our team, and you'll see very different attitudes that mesh well to form a complete team.

Wilson - calm, inspiring, humble, driven.
Lynch - introverted, shy, smashmouth, driven.
Thomas - quiet, focused, alert, driven.
Sherman - loud, flamboyant, chippy, driven.

See the common theme?

The more I hear about Sherman the more I like about him. During the Redskin-Cowboys game last night they told a story about Harbough's effort to convince RGIII to come to Stanford to play along with the already recruited Luck. Harbough tried to convince RGIII that a shared QB arrangement would work at Stanford.

Apparently Sherman was assigned to show RGIII around. RGIII mentioned to Sherman what Harbough proposed and Sherm told him...uh that's not going to work. Beside showing what a dishonest jerk that Harbough was, it also demonstrated Sherman's basic integrity.

Whatever, I really don't see the kind of cheap trash talk we used to get from Divas like Neon Deion and TO.

I can live with Sherm having a bit of an attitude. He's earned the right, IMO.

Sherman is anti-"character guy."

But outside of his mouthy antics, he seems very chill. On the field though he's mouthing off at the WR, QB, etc.

A guy like Sherman would have never been drafted by Ruskell or Homlgren. The only coach that could actually see his talents would probably be Mora.

During his rookie year I wasn't a fan of his antics because he got flagged for them but has since learned to play within the rules and has been outstanding for it.

I dont' think he's bragging, I think he feels disrespected and has a chip on his shoulder.

We have the best CB in football and people are complaining about his attitude. Dude, lights the team up and gets them going. Give me a break. Have you seen the other prima donnas in the NFL? Sherm is a cupcake in comparison.

I like my team to have a bunch of different types of guys on it. Sure, you have your guys like Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch who let their play speak for themselves. But the team would be boring if we only had these types of characters. I love that we have players like Dick Sherman who bring the play and their voice. It just makes the team, that is here for entertainment purposes anyway, so much more interesting to follow.

I love his attitude.

Personally, I have never understood the Seattle vibe. Everyone in this city acts so meek, so timid and passive. I actually find that pretty annoying, and greatly prefer Sherman's very LA attitude. In fact, it's one of the things I love about LA as a city - full of brash, outsized personalities. I love people who talk big, walk big, and live big. I find it inspiring and it makes me want to push myself harder in my own life.

Yes, I understand there is a group of folks out there who think you have to be quiet and let your actions define you. That's okay for them. Whatever. I appreciate people like Sherman, who say out loud what they are going to do, who they want to be, and then go out and MAKE IT HAPPEN. I just love that. I did the same thing actually. When my parents asked me what I was going to do with my new degree, I told them I was going back to school because I wanted to discover a cure for Alzheimer's. They both thought I was crazy. Why couldn't I just go get a good middle-class accounting job and pay off my student loans? Have some humility!! Whatever. Did I find a cure for Alzheimer's? Not yet. But I've had a lot of fun trying, and I continue to strive to live up to that goal I set for myself. And I really don't see any problem with other people who likewise set their goals verbally, let the world know who they are and what they are going to do. More power to Sherman!

I generally agree with this, but find my self appreciating having the swagger he brings on the team. Not my style either, but I think as long as he continues to back it with his play it is another important piece to what this team is becoming.

Yes, but no individual on this board is harsher on the players than you.

Right there with you Tech as I am one who likes guys that let their play speak for them, however, its not always bad having at least one guy that is not afraid to speak his mind on a team and that is Sherm for us. Plus, he has been snubbed out of a lot of things like the pro-bowl so he does have some wiggle room to complain and boast.

Normally I wouldn't care for that kind of character but he reminds me of Gary Payton who is one of my all-time favorite sports players.

Exactly. The other day on Twitter, someone asked if Russell Wilson was the new Gary Payton, my response to that was. Russell is the new Nate McMillan, Sherman is Payton. Russell is "Mr Seahawk" to his core whereas Sherm is "The Glove." The lock down 1st team All-Defense guy that will trash talk Jordan/Brady and back it up.

We just need to go out and get Shawn Kemp (the supremely talented wr), I guess. Not a Sonics fan, but to carry out the analogy....

Shermans a team first guy . with that comes us 12's. he loves us fans. Him posting those stats and letting everyone know he is the best is just more ammo for us seahawk fans.

Sherman and Wilson are shaping this team and becoming my favorite players on the team , yet both have different personalities.

That might be true but I don't think I am being all that harsh on Dick. He is a great player that would be so much more enduring league wide if he would just pick his spots to talk a little better.

Do we really care if he's more enduring league wide. I guess we want our cake and to eat it too. Our team used to not have character...now we have too much? Seems silly to me, but I'm a guy who likes that sort of character.

I don't know if it's really that unpopular. Sherman has a pretty typical love/hate kind of personality. I'm usually against what he's doing as well, but there's something about the way he does it that makes me like him more and fall on the love side of the dividing line. And, if you think about it, forcing people to develop an opinion about him also forces them to think about who he is. Better than apathy, at the very least, and a generally good marketing tool.

Edit: You can even see some of the baiting inside his claims. If you can get opposing QBs to mark you, you can take advantage of their reactions with interceptions and more defensed passes. Nothing like a little wounded pride to make some players press and overreact.

I'm pretty sure it's on purpose. He really gets into opposing players' heads and makes them play worse in an effort to 'get back' at him. See Steve Smith last year, Tom Brady this year, etc. He doesn't turn it off after the game because then opposing players would see him as just another mouth, instead of somebody they hate...That's what takes them out of their game.

If he had a $30 million contract with guaranted money in the bank I would be inclined to agree with you. He is playing under a 4 year $2.2 million contract that can't be renewed for another year. He has a huge interest in staying in the media and being focused on. Being a pro-bowl player or not can impact his next contract with a few hundred thousand etc. He is not in the media because of getting arrested or beating his spouse or something he is in the media just with a few words here and there.

I for one have no problem with it and understand that these rookies are now screwed by the CBA and need to put themselves in the limelight for the next contract

This tweet smacks of someone who is still pissed about being snubbed.

Sherman "according to the numbers/the numbers don't lie." Translation - take your votes and shove them where the sun don't shine, my numbers do the talking.

You bet,,, he's going to force feed the idiots that snubbed him, THEY are the ones with stupid on their resume'
That chip is turning into a log, and the Playoffs will only intensify his resolve.
Let's turn this road game into a road kill game, GOOOOO SEAHAWKS!!!

Whatever, I really don't see the kind of cheap trash talk we used to get from Divas like Neon Deion and TO.

I can live with Sherm having a bit of an attitude. He's earned the right, IMO.

Hell to the YES.
We finally get a player that has confidence running out his ass, and why not, he's giving everything he's got in the games, and he should just quietly stand in the shadows?,,HELL NO!

To be fair, you implied it; even if it was unintentional. It sounds like that's what you think about him, to most of the rest of us in this thread.

I think after all the high character, high motor, no skillz players we had over the years it's a welcome change to have someone who can back up his talk, no matter how much he talks. As long as the whole team isn't that way, it doesn't hurt to have one big mouth on the team.

True, Scutter; but to be honest, I was almost hoping the Rams would tie it up so we could go into overtime to give Wilson a chance to break Peyton's record.

I know, I know...I can't help it. I wanted that for him (and my own bragging ego; I admit it) badly.

Nope. I said he needed to tone it down. Nothing about hiding in the shadows.
I like the attitude. I like the trash talk. Just not each an every day.

Oh and I should not even say needed to. He doesn't really because look how he plays. I just said that it wasn't really my style.

I've never really been fans of braggadocious, in-your-face players, but when they're on your team and playing at a high level (GP) it is so much fun!

Here is my unpopular view of Sherman.

He is a hell of a player but I honestly wish he wouldn't be so bragadochous.

Just not my style. His play should,does, and will speak for itself. He takes away from his greatness at times with his look at me attitude.

Dude is great player, and a great team mate but I feel he hurts his perception with his mouth.

Unpopular view around here, I know.


I don't really see him as that type. He's not Deion Sanders. He's just having fun. :twocents:

I can respect that.

If he has a bad game or two, he just doubled the criticism he will get. Or more. When you constantly talk it, you must constantly walk it.

I hate cockiness, but I absolutely love Shermans cockiness. He does it imo to put a target on his back on purpose. And he backs it up.

Steve2222, you might be on to something, here. Sherman might be baiting QBs outside of games to try and get them to throw on him. Hmmm...interesting. More targets = more opportunities.

Sherman's the best CB on the planet and I can't believe we have people here bitching about him. He's not even 'Trash-talking' he's FACT talking and backing every bit of it up.

Go Sherman.
