I really can't think of anyone else right now who is playing better at CB than Sherman right now around the league (Browner's not too far behind..). I've been hearing that opposing offenses aren't even throwing his way anymore. Another monster game today by Richard.

Things that are obvious don't need rhetorical questions.

This. After all, he's built up some pretty good stats against some premiere QBs. I'm not sure any other CBs in the discussion have faced the talent that Sherm has yet this season.

He'd get my vote even with a healthy Revis. His length is really difficult for QBs to fully comprehend...until it's too late.

You see, this is what gets to me. I still have problems believing he is as big as he is. He moves with the fluidity of a much smaller man. Over the years, this is the big reason why corners always seemed to be so short, they couldn't change directions with their big bodies and keep up with the more athletic WRs. Sherm can do that. You're probably right on one level. A QB will look at that big guy out there and think his WR will out maneuver him, but it ain't happenin'. Woe on him if he does.

Sherm's amazing.

And he's only played CB for what, 3 years? 4? I know he started out as a WR at STanford for a year or two, not exactly sure when he turned to D.

I don't see anyone else that flashes great plays on a more regular basis than Sherman, and even Browner to a great extent, these guys have Quarterbacks leary of throwing anything within range of either of these guys.
They are both aggressive, and play with two distinctly different styles ,so, Like I said before, it's a "Pick Your Poison"
The Seahawks secondary just seems to be getting better and better with each game.
Pete and John have absolutely proven that they know their shit on how to find talent while a lot of others are relying on the draft status of players in making their picks.

Against a traditional CB Brady would have got that ball in to Branch, but vs Sherman it was like he was completing the pass to Richard and Branch was the DB.

Guys like Revis, Woodson and Bailey are still around and still on top of their game, but I think Sherman has more impact plays this season. It's amazing to think he's only in his second year which means we got this guy for a while, how nice is that!

How many INTs does Revis have this year? I'm going with = no superbow.

The NFL net boys giving the Hawks all kinds of props right now. Wilson in particular. They showed the Sherman "You mad bro?" pic with Brady and all had a good laugh over that. EVEN Faulk gave us props. Seriously. He did.

Sherman has been getting picked on by EVERYONE the last couple weeks. Romo, Rodgers, Bradford, and Brady have all done it, and all regretted it. He holds up every time.

I'd say with Revis out, he's top 3, maybe the best. Browner has to be up there as well.

Sherm seems a bit faster, and can directions better.

Browner is more physical, will erase you at the line, and is even longer than Sherm. He'll also hurt you, as Welker found out.

Both have amazing ball skills.

See, you can't just look at stats like INT's. Players like Revis rarely get thrown to- decreasing their chances for picks. They call him Revis Island for a reason.

If any of our remaining opponents this year were thinking about passing on Sherman, they aren't anymore.

I seriously had to rewind and listen to it again because I didn't believe what I was hearing, especially comming out of Faulk's mouth.

Make it a poll so we can all answer YES!!

The options on that poll should be
YES!
HELL YES!
and...
In the NFL? How about in the history of the NFL. How about in every game that was ever played and ever will be played he's the best CB until GAWD comes down from the heavens and plays CB and even then, he'll take tips from Sherman.

haha.

So yeah, I think he is the best CB I've seen since Darrell Green of the Skins.

Revis hasn't been all that good since his hold out. It's been one injury after the other.

I'd take Richard Sherman or Brandon Browner in a heartbeat.

Name one DB in the league that you have seen do what Browner (and Sherman) did against Cam Newton and the option...

I love that we are kicking ass with two players that Harbaugh overlooked. :p
