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.

From NFL.com:

"Sherman eviscerated Bayless on live airwaves, sending the program down a rolling river of awkwardness ("First Take" co-host Stephen A. Smith might still be sitting in front of a camera with his mouth open)."

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100000 ... first-take

A link to some crap website, albeit w/post-interview Sherm tweets:

"Put a national television host in his place, take a nap and go shoot some Zombies. Pretty successful day."

http://97rockonline.com/richard-sherman ... -than-you/

Sando blog, w/forty-whiner fans displaying diarrhea of the mouth in the "comments" section:

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."

Much lulz. Good on Sherman. Funny to see everyone here ragging on him for going overboard when most of us would fold like a cheap suit or go all Scanners head explodey if we tried to defend ourselves against that jackwagon.

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.

When you have a professional troll like Bayless, it's best to play him at his own game. Call him John Clayton on air or something like that. Or just don't go on the show. 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.

Well definitely thought the comment about him being better at life was a little bizarre considering they both are successful at their respective fields but I can't help but laugh because you hawk fans will jump at the opportunity to hate on harbaugh for his side line antics but you love Sherman's "sideline" antics all his trash talk was that why he was overlooked at the pro bowl? 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.

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.

Sherman enjoying the ride playing across from Browner, and the outstanding front seven, insinuating that Sherman wouldn't have garnered the same success playing on a lesser accomplished Defense, well how does Brainless compare the Seahawks Defensive Secondary of 2010 to 2012, without seeing an extreem upgrade at the Corner positions.
Bayless wanted to dismiss Sherman's accomplishments as being the by-production of everybody elses outstanding play.
Sherman's big problem is his not accepting the disrespect that some of those dolts want to dish out, without rebuttle.
His answer to a lot of these guys?, "so you say that you are better than me out there?, prove it, because that's what I intend to do when we meet out there on the field.
I've heard Sherman give mad props to some opponents around the League, but he does answer to disrespect from others with besting them, come game time.
Sherman says I WILL, while some others say I'LL TRY.

Don't get what a lot of people expected. Bayless has been going at Sherman since the Revis Twitter fight. Just look at his Bayless' tweets to Revis. Should Sherman, as a man, and as a highly accomplished athlete, just take it when this clown downplays his abilities, accomplishments, and stats? Good for Sherman for standing up for himself. A lot of people get their info from mediots like Bayless and co. Things they say resonate with the uninformed fans around the NFL. I bet you they'll think twice about Sherman now. And I bet you a lot of them have been forced to look up what Sherman's done in such a short time. Where as before, they might've said, "Well he sucks. He didnt even make the Pro Bowl", they'll now say, "he has to be great. He's an All-Pro"

I love it. So many times we talk about wanting to hear truths for those we watch on TV. Sherman does what many people would do if someone cheapened their accomplishments. All this does is bring attention (negative/positive) to both Sherman and ESPN's show. Everyone wins. No one is rooting for Bayless; he is paid to be an offensive hack. Sherman is getting something that so many Seahawks fans crave... attention. Now it's here and we cringe at it?

Not every team gets only positive attention. Now on the scale of "unwanted" attention, this is pretty comical. He's not hurting anyone, he's not damaging the team's name, every time he pops up it says "Richard Sherman - Seattle Seahawk," and it's the offseason... unless you have a way to make it April for the Draft and then Training Camp, this will make the time off more fun.

Go Richard.

Chris Chase is the worst sports writer for Yahoo!. He tries to make (drama) stories out of nothing thats why he is hated. I actually agree with him for once though



There has been a lot of negative feedback for sherman, These same people were probably praising Cuban when he slammed Skip Bayless. They're just jelly that Sherms not on their team

For me, the difference is that I am eager to pay $$$ to watch Sherman do his job... no so much for Skippy Dippy.

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.

That last quote sounds more along the lines of Jackie Gleason in the role of Minnesota Fats in The Hustler.

Just saw it for the first time. I will admit that I hate Bayless, and never would have watched if it wasnt Sherm. Skip completely showed his ignorance when he said that Sherm played in front of one of the best front 7's in the NFL. We will probably be drafting front 7 players with our first 2 picks this year along with signing a Free agent or 2, so swing and a miss there jack ass. Having said that. I agree with BFS. He is painting himself in a corner here. His ego and mouth are overshadowing the good things he does as a player and a team mate. STFU and go play Dude

A lot of what Sherman said was juvenile ("I'm better at life than you," What the hell was that?), though he pointed out the same thing that Mark Cuban pointed out regarding Bayless: he knows nothing more about sports than fans do. You can't say that Sherman isn't in the same league as Revis without sounding like an idiot and discrediting yourself.

It's simple, really...
he can back it up on the field.

More importantly, as a human being he backs it up OFF the field.

Cool dude. Love his work.

I love Sherman on the field, I mean like really really love him.

I have to say though that he came across like a punk. Telling Skip he's better at life than he is? He did go personal in my opinion and I lost some respect for him for how he handled that interview.

Boom. Awesome. Just because Sherm trash talks in public and not just on the field doesn't make him any better/worse. People loved Gary Payton, MJ, the Reign-Man - only difference is that the majority of the time they didn't trash talk in public. The comparison of Sherm to Ali is apt. People either love it, or hate it.

I can't get over how much I love Sherman. It's so hard to choose between his jersey or Wilson's next year. Maybe I should switch between the two. Wilson when I go to the games and Sherman at the bars for the away games? ET had me all year 2 years ago, and Kam had me last year. I was trying to stick to one player per season, but it's hard, because I want a Lynch and a Wagner jersey, too.

First world problems for sure...
