  • ^I tend to agree with kag0331, but I am WAAY WAAY WAAY in the minority around here. Sherm is digging a hole. I wish he'd play it cool. Stay off these damn shows. Quit being an attention whore. Play football. I don't see what good comes of all this ME ME ME stuff. He doesn't need it. Of course, most people around here seem to care a great deal about getting the media's attention and approval so they love it. It's already grown stale to me. I thought the push-up contest was pretty badass, though.

  • Does Harbaugh act professional with his act on the sideline?

    The reason he wasn't in the pro bowl was because he got hit with the adderall thing no more no less. He was 1st team all-pro which is more important anyways.

    Enjoy Sherman picking off Kaepernick for the rest of their careers like he did in the endzone in Seattle. If being a loud mouth with a sh*tload of swagger helps him be one of the if not the best corner in the league then I'm all for it.

    Now when his play drops off then all the scavengers will move in for the kill and he'll never hear the end of it. Hopefully that day is very far off and until then fight on Richard Sherman.

    Sure, there are fans that don't like his style but tons of others who do. I am old school. Grew up watching Butkus and Nitscke, among others. But back then there wasn't the internet, twitter, facebook and a million sports sites. As long as he is productive on the field nothing I say about his conduct matters.

    Your Harbaugh comment/comparison of treatment didn't resonate with me and I was just messing with you for even bringing up the comparison of how hypocritical fans can be toward a rival. No one gives the other guys credit. Law of the land.

    Yes, Sherman needs to be careful unless he wants his performance on the field to be overlooked. His buddies at NFL AM mentioned the same thing when he was on. He stated himself that he figured he needed to dial down the rhetoric otherwise he marginalizes himself. But he seems not to be doing that yet. I would refrain from going on any more shows if it was me, but it isn't. So as long as the media can make a buck, they will be in bed with this type of story.

    He didn't instigate the Revis twitter war, that was on Revis. As well as the comparison thing was on fans egging him on.

  • I think Sherman is a great cornerback in the NFL I would bet that his " swaqqer" isn't what makes him good its all the hard work he puts in when no one is around what none of us fans get to see the real work of an athlete is not on Sunday I know that from playing sports all my life. That's PAYDAY ! I'm not here to piss off the members of the board just an NFL fan giving my two cents. And he also just made skip bayless the most talked about talking head now ! Great work sherm you just gave old Skippy a contract extension....haha

    He got to him because Sherman was obviously very upset by what Bayless said. That's EXACTLY the type of reaction Bayless was hoping for and Sherman for some reason gave it to him. It's the same thing as on a message board when a troll posts outrageous claims just to get posters worked up and upset.

    He also didn't answer any of the questions asked and instead went on ranting about how he has a better life than Bayless, taking personal shots, etc.

    Sherman went to Stanford, as he let everyone know, he should be smarter than to fall into that trap of slinging shit at each other (which is what first take is)

  • ok, im not a big fan of skip, as most arnt, and it was awesome seeing Sherman put it to him, even though he did seem a little "edgy", as he was taking things really personal.

    Now i havent followed Sherman and everything he has done as much as you guys obviously. I know he is a great Cb and such.

    My question though is, in all of the Revis talk presented to him, has he ever said Revis is a good CB or anything like that? has he ever admitted that Revis is a great CB as well? or has he only said he thinks he is better? Has he ever shown respect to him? Revis has been the best Cb overall for many years. Like i said, i dont follow him like you guys do, this isnt a joke, i am really asking if he has ever given props to Revis or only claimed to be better when it came up.

    He flipped it all on Bayless. That clown wanted to reignite all the jawing that went back and forth with Revis and Roddy White, and Sherm wasn't going to go there. He called him out on it and went on the offensive. So while yes, he did jump right into what they were looking for in terms of heated commentary from Sherm, I don't think they were expecting him to completely obliterate that hack.

    Sherm said what everyone thinks of Skip Bayless and good on him for it. It's not as if Stephen A even attempted to step in and direct the conversation away from all that, he just sat there and let it happen. Hell he probably enjoyed it as much as we do.

    Yes he has. He stated so on NFL AM when the whole twitter thing was discussed with him. He just notes that as long as Revis is out with an ACL, he couldn't be thought of as one of the top CBs for last season. He said once Revis comes back that he is a great player and talent, most likely the best in the league. He just bases his stats for last season and a half to Revis' first two years for those fans that like busting his chops when he says he is a good CB.

    Get that Pro Bowl garbage out of here. That's the weakest argument ever. The Pro Bowl is a joke, and everyone knows it.

    1st team All Pro. That trumps anything.

    You Whiners fans are just jealous because you would kill to have Sherman on your team.

    ok then, thats good. was just thinking if he hadnt, he'd come off kind of douchee. lol. I agree Revis cant be thought of a top cb last season since he missed almost all of it, its kind of common sense. Good to know and thanks for the info. Makes me like Sherman more(though i still hate him cause he is a seahawk lololol).

    Guy is a stud and it seems the media is driving all of this drama that involves him. Though he could of done a better job at not taking it so personal with Skip, but after so much it is bound to happen.

    Exactly, so why lower yourself to his level and go on the show to "debate" him?

    It's not as if anyone takes Skip seriously. Except for Richard Sherman I guess, based on the anger of his response.

    Good for him. As long as his play and work aren't hurt, whatever's clever. I try not to tell men how they should conduct themselves, but thats just me.

  • I enjoyed it. These things are always fun when athletes don't stick to the script.

    I am amused by the 49ers fan claiming to speak for NFL fans about Richard Sherman. If I went to 49ersWebZone and told them that I speak for all NFL fans when I say that Jim Harbaugh is classless, I would be laughed off their boards - and rightfully so.

    What possesses someone to come to the fan boards of a team they dislike to criticize those fans for supporting their players?

  • Bayless is a douch too bad Sherm got his feathers ruffled by this hack. I hope it doesn't bring too much more bad press his way. Sherm seems like a great player, teamate, and human, but the fact he is all the way up in Seattle the only way he gets noticed is by speaking out.

    It's a little different when someone like that is talking shit about you constantly, and literally 5 minutes before you go on his worthless show when he knows you're listening, that's pretty disrespectful. Nobody has to take that, but most just let it happen. I really don't care how Richard came off to people, he probably wasn't his sharpest but Skip got the level of response that he deserved.

    Sherm didn't have to do it by any means, but I'm pretty sure he knew that. I think the fact that the show was uncomfortable was great.

    I can't speak for everyone, but I like that Sherman does whatever he needs to do in order to find that extra motivation to make himself better. He might be loud and obnoxious sometimes, but at least he isn't complacent or uninterested (or at least, that is how I look at it).

    I don't necessarily crave media attention for the team. Maybe back before tens of fan websites that focus on my favorite team, I would have. At this point, I don't even watch ESPN unless someone posts a video on a fansite like this one.

  • It's about time a player called out an 'expert' on tv. Long overdue, actually.

    Yes, Sherman could possibly have handled it a little better, (being articulate with a guy whining like that in your ear must be difficult), but the message was there, loud and clear.

  • OK, the more I watch this, the more I LOVE IT. Sherm did not look hurt at all he actually wasn't even trying that hard, he looked a little tired, but other than that he looked pretty chill, its just the way he talks. This interview is awesome, he gave that show no respect and it makes me giddy like a school girl.

  • I like to pretend that Richard played nice on ESPN and NFL Network the last couple months so the network would think he was cool to let on First Take, only so he could get there and rip skip a new one, kind of like Bruce Lee in Game of death, he had to gradually climb the stairs and defeat the lesser hacks to eventually crap on bayless on tv, all for my enjoyment.

  • Wooooooo!!!!

    I absolutely LOVE this! Skip Bayless, along with too many others to even count, is the kind of hack that's helped set the sports journalism industry back eons. Seeing ANYONE, especially one of my favorite Seahawks put Bayless in his place is a beautiful sight to me. Sherm tells it like it is and some people just can't handle that.

    No one denies Ali's greatness despite the amount of trash he talked. If Sherman keeps his level of play up over his career, which I'm sure he will, people will look back at his greatness fondly. Heck, they'll probably even look back at his trash talking fondly the way they do with Ali now.

    And it's funny how the sports media conveniently forgets about all the community service Sherman does. Messes with the image they're trying to promote of him being a punk. Funny how no one even remembers to mention that Sherman only RESPONDS to, and FINISHES, trash talk.

    I'm going to watch this every morning when I wake up to remind myself that Richard Sherman, in his 24 years of life, is better at life than Skip Bayless. One of the greatest quotes of all-time from an athlete to a "journalist."

  • All the negative things people are saying about Sherman today used to be said about Deion Sanders and Muhammad Ali. Today they are celebrated because they became the greatest.

    Sherman is trying to follow the same path. He knows what he is doing. This is a conscious decision on his part. He is "burning his ships and bridges behind him" so that he has no choice but to excel and be great. He can't turn back and mellow out now... and just be a decent CB... or he will face utter humiliation on the field and in public. He is forcing himself to be great.

    He has the talent to make it happen. Time will tell if he has the mental willpower and work ethic to make himself what he claims to be. Lets hope foe the Seahawks sake he does.

Fact is, Skip takes this reaction to the meeting about his next contract. His job is to get people talking about him.

    Hell no, Sherman told him, that he produces no facts, only opinions, "THAT'S WHY NOBODY LISTENS TO YOU"

    If no one listened to Skip Bayless, then no one would have an opinion of Skip Bayless...

    Sherman could hav chosen his words a little better in that statement, something like That's why Nobody BELIEVES You,,That's more to the truth of what Sherman probably intended to insinuate.

    Nice post, SHOCKER. I always like it when you break away from PWR and offer your take on sports matters. I'm not certain it's entirely conscious, however. He seems to have chosen this path, that's for sure. As with most choices and paths there will be rewards and unforeseen consequences. I hope he handles both with grace.

  • An awkward interview and I loved every minute of it. Bayless had nothing to say back, but he accomplished what he was going for. That interview will be talked about a lot on the sports/radio shows.

I agree about skip being an ass but come on so is Sherman maybe they met their match...hhaa maybe he can make the first team next year....



    "Ha ha ... let me slip in some random comment about my team, you know, the niners. Why are we not talking about them? You guys always dumping on Harbaugh but he is better than Sherman ... ha ha."

    Thanks for sharing 9ers dude. Your complaint is duly noted. Seahawks fans are big meanies to 9ers fans, coaches and players on their forum.


    Exactly..

    Niner fans think that every topic should include their team in some way. It is almost like he is calling Seahawk fans to be hypocrites, when they exhibit so much of that behavior on their own. Even when SF was stinking it up for 8 of the past 10 years they wanted "respect". That after the Hawks had a long string of successful seasons. When the Hawks went and lost the SB, Niner fans were all over it because they didn't win it. 13-3, none of that mattered, it was nothing. But the Niners do less in the regular season and lose the SB and we are supposed to bow to their achievement.

    I like what Sherman did because it was Bayless. A figure who has made more nonsensical claims than Homer Simpson. One who draws pay for expressing his personal opinion as fact instead of reading between the lines.

    Sherman, plays corner as well as Revis. How many balls did he knock down in casual fashion? Making it look easy. Sherm has an argument and rather than give Bayless the easy way out of his statement, he called him on it. Then measured him in the world of sports reporting where Clueless is known as being a complete idiot who rarely makes accurate comments. A professional troll he is.

    Wow I hate Bayless and love sherm so i had multiple orgasms from this video

    It was awesome. And to the people who don't like the way he represents, well, no comment as that's smack shack material. I love that fact that he shoveled that shit right back in skip's lap.

    Off the wall comments based upon zero factual data don't deserve a dignified answer. Skip's agenda was to put Sherm in his place, with the illusion that his tenure as a mediot somehow commands any kind of respect. It just so happens that our Stanford boy flipped the script on him. Good on ya Sherm!

  • I've seen a lot of posts (not here necessarily though there have been some) acting like Sherman can't be a great player because he talks too much sh!t. Saying that the great ones let their play do the talking and that he should just shut up.

    I dunno where "part of being great is being classy" came from. I mean, I'm not saying it's bad to be classy and great but just it's not a requirement. It just comes down to the person I guess, everyone's different.

    Some guys are like Barry Sanders. Absolutely amazing talents that are also humble and meek

    BUT

    Some guys are like Muhammad Ali. Trash talkers to the core, cocky and arrogant at times

    Sherman is obviously like Ali

    Who are we to say which ways right or which is wrong? The right way is whatever works best for the Athlete, and it's pretty evident all this trash talk etc. feeds Sherman and gets him playing harder. More power to him...

    Quotes from Sherman in the last few days on his Twitter. I sense the guy knows what he is doing.


    "Failure, Humiliation, Embarrassment are some individuals greatest fear. Understand they are mentally created and can be mentally defeated."

    "The difference between the individuals that leave a footprint on this world and those who simply walk in those steps is that there is no unattainable goal. There are simply adverse avenues to greatness and smooth roads to mediocrity."

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us."

    I wonder if he has been reading this classic book perhaps? I wouldn't doubt if he came across it at Stanford.

    He is baiting every opponent the Hawks have. Sherm is far more intelligent than people give him credit for. He gets frustrated when balls don't come his way and wants the chance to make a play. Just look at the games, how many passes really thrown at Sherman actually get completed? Not many, the percentage is probably very, very low.

    When they finally do complete one, it is usually a very amazing play. The whole time the focus is on Sherm, the pressure is not on guys like Wilson, Lynch, Ir the rest of the secondary. Who can quietly go about their business kicking ass. It is intentional and Sherm will be the first guy to say that the Seahawks are a team, not just one man.

    On NFLN, when he did his one word description of receivers that he faced, he describes every one in a very positive word. That was after keeping most of them FAR under their typical day.
