Sherman's "antics" had nothing to do with it. The mere CLOUD of the LEAKED suspension had everything to do with it.
Sherman's "antics" if anything helped him and got people to pay attention to his actual PLAY. "U mad, bro?" was *CLASSIC*. Brady even cooperated with his scowl for the photo, and especially by throwing a pick to Sherman that became the difference in the NE game. @Optimus_Prime would have been way more fun with a W in Detroit.
As someone pointed out on another thread, we acted nice and proper and correct around here, and we got JOBBED in Super Bowl XL. Let's not make that mistake a second time. If we're going to get jobbed in the playoffs, let's at least do it with attitude and sass. Winning with attitude would work for me too.
Sherman for President in 2016.
