    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.


    Easy there, Tim Ruskell. ;)

    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.

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


    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

    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.

    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!

  • 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 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 remember I read an article that said right before Brady threw the pick to Sherman, Sherman was trash talking him a whole bunch, saying stuff about how he never threw to his side. Then Brady tried it, and voila, pick.......

    But yeah, he said he used his trash talk to get QB's to throw at him. Probably the reason Brady threw that ill-advised pass.

  • After many years of mediocre CB play from players like Kelly Jennings and Josh Brown, I'll take Sherman and Browner every day... and some attitude that comes with them.

    Sherman's cool. Not over the edge like some here think.
