  • Sherm could have kept his cool better and stuck his stats to Skip (simply put: One season that matches Revis's best season should put Sherman in the conversation), but he wasn't hired for his ability to debate on national TV. Who cares if he gave a bad(ly articulated) interview? I only care if he helps take the Hawks to the next level by his play on the field, and I'll support him as long as he is a member of our team.

    Go Hawks, and Go Sherm!

    The agency also signed many of the the biggest names in the upcoming draft.

    What exactly are you implying?

    That he's setting himself up to make a lot of money.

  • Just in case you all forgot, Skip got his big break by calling Troy Aikman homosexual in one of his books to get people to read it. That is Skip Bayless. He deserves every insult that anyone throws at him at any time. He's the guy that would have been stoned to death or thrown out of town if this was the 1700's.

    Maybe because an athlete of Sherman's stature should be above stopping down to SKIP BAYLESS levels? Do you see LeBron James going on first take? Hell no.

    Plus, his trash talk wasn't even that great. He was way too emotional and sounded on the verge of tears. Sherman had nothing at all to gain by going on that show

    Here's the problem Sherman's creating for himself by going after everyone and anyone that says something bad about him. He's leaving himself no room for error. Sherman's put himself so high up on a pedestal publicly with all this chest thumping that there's nowhere for him to go but down. He's created a persona that everyone other than Hawk fans will be rooting against him.


    I wonder when it comes contract extension time and Sherman is likely demanding one of the larger defensive contracts in the game how his act will be viewed here then?

    In my opinion when his brashness turns into wanting to get paid, and there's no way I can imagine a guy making peanuts right now and self proclaiming himself the best in the game won't demand more money than anyone, people here won't be supporting him as much anymore(though he'll still likely have a lot of fans if he plays well)

    If he continues to play at the level he's playing at, he deserves to get paid. It's no secret that Sherman and Wilson are incredibly underpaid by NFL standards. I expect him to demand Revis+ money if he plays this well going forward. And I'll support him as long as he's a Seahawk. If he leaves, then sayonara.

    It's the same thing if Sherman was on the Niners. We would be bashing him. You guys would be defending him.

    True. There's no debating Sherman's talent. Guys who are really outspoken though tend to have some pretty messy/difficult contract extensions though. I think he's walking a really fine line in which right now a lot of people love him, but that might not be the case in a few years.

    I would be kind of concerned about how he'd react if he felt like Seattle was disrespecting him in contract negotiations or he wasn't being taken care of, just based on his personality in the media. It might be tough to give the guy what he wants with so many other Seahawk players who are good and young also going to be needing contract(the gift and the curse of drafting so well like Seattle has done).

    That's true. Too many young guys playing out of their mind on rookie contracts. There's no doubt, not all of them will be retained. As for Sherman, being as he's my favorite current Seahawk, I tend to look into more of the context of these situations he's in. We get to know him a little better, and I've yet to see him disrespect someone that didn't disrespect him first. But I can understand from an outsiders perspective how he'd seem like just a loud, obnoxious ME type of guy when that's all you really get to see of him outside of a few Sundays a season.

    Dominating the NFC West more often than not and getting to the SB tested you? Man you're one hard man to please. And you're the one that called yourself a casual Seahawk fan, so I don't know what you're trying to defend here.

    You like the whole secondary but him? ET and Sherm are the 2 best. Yeah, let's get rid of Sherm because "he's a goof". Weird how you've been a Seahawk fan your whole life but can't appreciate an all-pro shutdown corner. You can hate him as a person, but to not even want him on your team, is ridiculous.


    relax bro, just my opinion. I'm a big fan now for sure, but I'm also a fan of guys that keep it classy. Sherm went down to Skip's level. Needs to stop being so sensitive. I think it'll catch up to Sherm, that's all I'm saying.

  • Ya know, I'm seeing a pattern. In every situation Richard Sherman finds himself in, he becomes a mirror. He's got a psychological game going on and everybody who presents a challenge finds his crosshairs. Think about it.

    Tom Brady starts the dialogue. Sherman ends it. (to great ado)
    Trent Williams makes an offer. Sherman accepts. (to great ado)
    Twitterers say he's not as good as Revis. He tweets his stats. (to great ado)
    Bourbon Street is rowdy and fun. So is Sherman. (etc)
    NFL AM is well-dressed, low-key, positive, and polite. So is Sherman. (blah blah)
    Skip Bayless is an insufferable prick. So is... (yadda yadda)

  • I wish Sherm had actually asked Skip to break down why he thought Revis was better. Offer a breakdown of their relative ball skills, athleticism, bump and run ability, physicality...etc. Just go category by category and see if Bayless had any relevant knowledge whatsoever which would allow him to form an opinion. My guess is that he would not. Sherm would have come out looking like roses if he had done that instead of going for personal attacks.

  • Seahawks fans gave Walter Jones grief about his hold-outs. Yes, there will be a huge outcry from fans when Sherman's contract comes up. No, he isn't going to be giving any home town discounts.

    Until he violates organizational or NFL policies, he has freedom of speech to do as he wants. Does it make the followers of the team proud to see his persona? Not across the board. PC can ask him to tone it down, but it is still up the Sherman to go along.

    I think of DeAngelo Hall as well when I think of where Sherman's actions can take him. He probably isn't getting in the coach's face but his act looks to be going in the same line as Ochocinco, TO and Hall if he keeps it up. No signs that it will be changing anytime soon, so just keep making plays and when it comes time to re-do his contract, the team will have to decide how much he is worth.

    And for the poster that infered that Butkus was in the same mode as Sherman, that isn't what I remember. Those guys just tried to hurt you but most were from the John Wayne school of walking tall and speaking rarely. Joe Namath and Ali are more of the mode of what Sherman's dialogue mirrors.

    I'm Hawknpeppa and it's my opinion that any posts that take this type of stance could be implying the sentiments of weak-tit sister. Sherm said what every player that's been dissed by that tool wishes he would have had the nutz to say. We should stand up a 'weak sh*t' forum especially for any posts of this nature. :roll:

  • Personally I wasn't a fan of it because although true, I felt it was mean and yeah not my cup of tea, regardless of what Bayless said.

    Now Sherman doing his thing on the field, hey that's football I'm all for it.

    Things like the audio valentines to Brady and Megatron, calling himself Optimus Prime, going on Bourbon Street and interviewing people. That's more funny and all in good fun. That's the Sherman I like.

    What I saw on first take, I kind of wish Sherman just was sarcastic with him and played it off like Bayless was some kid who didn't know anything about football and agreed with him the whole time. Like "Oh yeah, you're right, Richard Sherman is TOTALLY not in the same league" and just kept his cheesy grin the whole time. I think that would have been better.

    But that's just me.

  • Stories like these showoff such a parody within our sports culture. This is just one guy's opinion of another guy's opinion, and the ensuing comedy is the media coverage and fan reactions, which are basically more and more opinions about opinions. Some of us are interested in the thoughts of others to the point where it really just serves as a counterproductive process to actual thinking. Should Sherman have a problem with opinion-based punditry? Absolutely, everyone should and this angst shouldn't be limited to just sports. Did calling out a single member of the giant machine of baseless journalism accomplish anything other than distracting us from more important/equally less important things? I doubt it!

  • Well this should be interesting. Sherman is acting like more of a diva than some of the most infamous diva's to ever play the game. These type of players usually end up wrecking havoc and become a major distraction in the locker room which causes teams to implode. As a fan of a team in the same division...I welcome his behavior for that exact reason as it is now crystal clear why other teams passed on him in the draft.

    The ironic thing is that if he was on a different team, I would imagine that most of you who claim to like his behavior would be feeling the exact opposite. Reading the posts in this thread, it does appear that some of your fans know that his behavior will probably have negative side effects for your team.
    DISCLAIMER:

    The trash talking that I do occasionally this week is strictly for gamesmanship between opposing fanbases as a result of our upcoming matchup this week on SNF. It by no means should be taken personally.

    How is he acting like a diva? Is he overturning the bowl of M&M's in the greenrooms cause all the M&M's aren't all red? Is he throwing his teamates under the bus? Are you envious of how hard we are going to whoop up on yall for years to come?

    Well he didn't refer to himself as the greatest of all time.

    He didn't forget what city he played for and throw out homophobic remarks in an interview.

    He didn't throw a concussed starting QB playing the best football of his life under the bus.

    He didn't flip out on the sidelines, refuse to give an after game interview, and put the blame of a superbowl loss on a blown call.

    but hey, "Gobble, gobble, turkey!" Sherman's calling out of a well known media jackass that had been publicly crapping on him during the offseason is team destroying poison, lol. Thanks, 49er fan, for that incredible insight.

    You're clueless man. Sherman isn't going to do anything wrong to the locker room, nor create a distraction. That's not his persona; he demands respect for his play and if it isn't given while being disrespected, hell will break loose.

    I hope Harbaugh makes your team implode since he's a complete jack wagon and it will be hilarious seeing the fall of the "49er empire" haha!

    Ah. Ninerlifer's words of wisdom. Always look forward to these.

    The ironic thing is, if he was on your team, you'd defend the hell out of him.

  • Other teams passed on him in the draft because their front office is not nearly as strong as ours.

    Great point. Colin Cowherd talked about that this morning he said if he has talked bad about a player he tells him all upfront. He tells the player that he will come at him in a debate and while many don't like Colin he ALWAYS backs up his words with facts.

    To me Sherman came off as immature in the first part. He completely crushes Skip an makes his point in the second half. The best part was managing to dance around the "great front 7". Horrible answer there is they aren't very good. Sherman was smart enough to not go there but just pointing out it was an opinion. Very deftly done.

    Yeah. He's great, man. If Richard is there you better believe Branton is there with him. That's why I'm not worried about Sherman going too far the way Ocho and TO did. Every other incident besides this latest have been in good spirits and in a joking manner. You can tell that mean-spirited, bitter guy is not him.

    9er fans are such p#ssies... and the fact that they would side with slime like Bayliss is even more telling about their character. :twisted:
