PFT per Schefter: Sherman appeal could be pushed back

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13

  • I'd rather lose him for the first 4 games next season and the team be prepared for it, so I like hearing about this.

  • I bet thats the point to this, the team needs their starting tandem and having both starters gone for the same games could have a huge impact

  • I approve this tactic. Whoever's idea it was.
    It's payback, Russell Wilson falling way back
    In the draft, turn nothing into something, still can make that

  • The Williams boys in Minnesota kept their appeals going for about 2 years. Who knows, maybe Sherm can do the same.

    Exactly my thoughts since I first heard he was gonna fight it.

    IDK if Shermans salary will hold up for 2 years of paying a spendy lawyer. Not on his salary.

    He just needs to hold out until February.

    Could be on the NFLPA's dime.

    Same here, I know the chances of him actually beating it would be almost impossible so I was hoping his angle was to postpone it into next year.

  • More power to him. I know this -- I like our chances a lot better in the 49ers game WITH him than WITHOUT him. What happens with his appeals process could have huge implications.

    Ditto. I was on the exact same wavelength there as well.

  • This would suck if it pushes back into the playoffs, though.

  • Is there an actual chance his suspension could be overturned?

  • Did either of the Williams brothers ever miss a game due to PED's?

  • Best case scenario is he takes the suspension the first four games next year. Gives us all offseason to get our replacement ready to be the starter.
    Richard Sherman doesn't just wanna get in your head, he wants to build a vacation home there.

    Well, sort of. There have been a couple that were, but it's almost unheard of. It'd be like a less than 5% chance of happening. Maybe less.

  • I know a player suspended for PEDs in ineligible for the Pro Bowl, but if the suspension is pended until next year can Sherman still go to the Pro Bowl this year?

  • I doubt Sherman even makes the Pro Bowl. The rest of the league hates him.

  • Thurmond is picking up where he left off and playing well. If he can hold down the fort on the other side, we can play Browner and him at the same time if/when Sherman gets suspended.

  • Even as someone that thinks Sherman has essentially a 0% chance of winning his appeal, I think this is great news. It would suck if he was forced to start serving it in the 49ers game and then miss most/all of the playoffs.
