Interesting Nugget on Sherman from Eric Williams Chat

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • First off: guy asks question about Baldwin and Sherman regarding Harbaugh:

    11:31 Comment From Carlos rogers
    Do you think Baldwin & Sherm really dislike Harbaugh or are they just showing allegiance to their new team?

    11:31 Nope. That is legitimate.


    Then it gets really interesting:

    11:32 Comment From xcman Did the Stanford guys not like him while at Stanford - or just feel slighted now

    11:33 At Stanford. Sherman and Baldwin were recruited by a different coach, and had a tough transition when Harbaugh took over. Sherman moved from offense to defense in part to get away from Harbaugh.


    So if that's true: part of the reason we even have a star cornerback is because Harbaugh is an ass.

    Beautiful.

  • Yeah, I thought at first that it was just playful, but spiteful "you didn't draft me" banter. I then realized that it was legitimate hstred after the birthday wish.

  • Thanks for the All-Pro corner Douche Boy.
    Your act will soon wear very thin with your players in Frisco (probably already has started......can you say "quaterback controversy"?....I knew that you could) and your team will soon become mediocre at best. I'm looking forward to your firing.

  • Hawkblogger did an interview and write up on Sherman on this exact topic a couple of months ago. Richard legit hates Harbaugh with a passion because Harbaugh pulled the same crap w/ Sherman after an injury that he's pulled on Alex Smith after his concussion. Sherm was their #1 WR and he got dropped basically off the depth chart after he got hurt, and Baldwin was his "little brother" at Stanford so you know they're gonna stick together

  • the SBN Niners site was reporting last year that Luck also was not too friendly with Coach Harbaugh.

  • Other than Alex Smith, I've not seen many players express a fondness for the head whiner. That admiration, I am certain Smith would now like to retract. I have nothing against kaep, and wish him well (in the long term) but in the short term, I hope he flops and costs the Niners a run at the SB. I doubt t would lead to the dismissal of Harbaugh, but it would certainly knock him down a notch. But even then, his mammouth ego would surely remain intact.

  • I also have heard Harbaugh wanted Sherman to transfer but he would not.Sherman is a smart dude.He knew even if football did not work out a degree from Stanford is worth it.Plus the fact he is from Compton.How many kids from Compton can make it at Stanford,Sherman is inspiring story if you really think about it

  • I've heard countless interviews with people that have been around hardouche, and the majority of them say one of two things...1) he was a decent guy as a player...2) he's a huge ass as a coach. That's coming from former players, and staff members.


    No doubt about it....the guy is an ass hat.

  • The guy will soon flame out in the NFL. You can't keep treating people like crap over and over without having them eventually quit on you. Wait until teams go hard on their free agents.

    Nice post. The whole situation also shows Sherman is one smart dude, as if getting into Stanford wasn't enough. I've always been fascinated that Sherman came from the Compton environment and all the places to go wrong there, and wound up at Stanford. Major-league overcoming ones surroundings.

  • I've heard from some USC folks who also know people at Stanford that the players loved Roman and Shaw but Harbaugh wasn't exactly beloved.

  • We can only hope Sunday was the beginning of the end for Harbaugh. Like Schiano down in TB, players get along with coaches like Harbaugh as long as they're winning. If the wheels start to wobble, it doesn't take long at all before the axle comes off.
