    Yeah. Sherm is stoked. He also pointed out our holes on the D-line.

  • I watched the NFL Am interview on NFL.com....Sherm was very laid back and very diplomatic. But he's often 'quieter' on NFL AM because he's up so early LOL.

    dude just looks worn out to me, hopefully he takes a break sometime soon and gets some rest. Hopefully he has a vacation planned.

  • He is an absolute shoo-in for a big time network gig when he is done football. This is the type of interview I love to hear from Sherman.

  • Nice interview. Unfortunately by the time he is due for a contract renewal I suspect his view on how the NFL's FO interact with players is going to be a little jaded. Only way all the players get paid that he mentions is that Rice, Miller, Leon and either Mebane or Red (maybe both) will be shown the door.

    John Clayton wrote a column a few weeks back and he claimed your usual NFL team cannot have more than 8 players making > $6M. Now whether he pulled that number out of thin air or not, your QB, LT, all-world FS and Top CB coming due around the same time is going to make things tough, especially with Harvin soon to make > $12M.

    Next offseason and beyond is going to be tough for those who got close to some of the fan favs with the team. The business side is just how things have to be with a cap and non-guaranteed contracts.

  • I don't think Clayton is wrong.

    The odds that Me bane, Byant, Rice or Miller reach the end of their contract is probably not going to happen.

    Since we have 2-3 years until their release that should free up cap space to resign our young guys.

  • I saw the interview. That was quite a different Sherm from the Bayless throwdown. He was back to being very personable and offered some good insight. Sounds like he knows he is going to get paid but wants to make it work in Seattle. Lets hope he does, but that negotiation really scares me

    Almost as if he was saying "I want to be the highest paid corner in the league... but not at the expense of the rest of the team", which would be awesome

    In the last month, he's been to Vegas and Miami, I believe.

  • Call it boring and canned if you like. To me it was informative and fun. And safe, yes.

    The question about does Sherma want/expect Seattle to make him the highest paid shack ever was lame, lowbrowl, tacky, premature and sensationalist. And Sherm handled it well.

  • Great insights from Sherm on the organizational culture. Loved hearing about the player-friendly college atmosphere that Pete has built here. I think that really comes through on the field and in the behind-the-scenes stuff we get to see. And am I wrong, or did it sound like he was open to being flexible in compensation to keep the key peices together?

  • Love the fact that he seems to have a genuine love for this organization and the way it is run. His ringing endorsement could be very helpful in attracting free agents to Seattle and it comes at the perfect time as Free agency is on all players minds right now.

  • If he is smart and I'd say he is considering he is a Stanford grad, then all this trash talking and getting his name out there is preparing him for his next contract. Not to be the highest paid player from his contract in the NFL, but from his contract+endorsement deals. Think about it, if this guy can continue to keep becoming someone everyone wants to see/hear then his face/mouth will equal advertising dollars not cap dollars. I hope this is what he is going after with all the trash talking because after all Seattle is the team that brought him in, and I'd think to a guy like Sherm that means everything. I guess we'll have to see how the next few years pan out, but I love this dude playing for Seattle and I would hate to see him leave, ever.

  • Well we will see, when a player says it's not about the money you know it's all about the money. In Seattle we seen this a few times.

  • LOL, Harvin throws the media under the bus for exaggerating the bad blood angle between him and the Vikings/Frazier. Seems like an up-front dude.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Sh ... n_football)#College_career

    He graduated. Likely finished his degree to get his resume bright enough as a CB to be drafted; he did switch away from being a receiver after two seasons under Douchebaugh to get away from the man.

    Sherm got a Bachelor's in Communications and used his last year of football eligibility to start work on a Master's.

    Edit: Roland got to it first.
