Sherman explains to the world why he is better than Revis

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • This is such a non-issue. He posted the stats in response to incessant goading about him not being as good as Revis. The air heads and homers were talking baseless sh*t. All Sherman did was post the facts. Y'all could make a more informed judgement, by at least doing some homework rather than reading rhetoric that was clearly biased.

    Some of us just prefer a more ?dignified? approach to the game.... Think Cortez. Or Kenny Easley..

    Different Strokes.


    Spot on BFS. I am glad that Sherm is a Hawk because he can flat out ball. If he played for the Whiners, he would hands down be the most hated player in the NFL by people on this board in my opinion!

  • My friend is a table dealer at Lucky Eagle Casino. Sherman sat down at his table a couple hours ago. The guy's such a thuggish, delinquent, classless gambleholic! :sarcasm off:

  • Sherman's play on the field should speak for itself. But it doesnt because Sherman doesnt allow it to.

    Sad really.

  • Fans are never the best people to ask whether certain players in the NFL are classy or an ass unless there's actual evidence I suppose. Not saying Sherman is a bad person he is one of the best CBs in the game so he should be a little full of himself. Although seeing some of the comments have been made about Colin Kaepernick it does show hypocrisy amongst fans.

    Fans look for anything to praise or destroy a player they love or hate. I mean look at the Kaepernick thread created. Fans have been calling him some harsh names just because he trademarked the maneuver where he kisses his biceps? How is that worse than some of the things Sherman tends to say before and after games either as an arrogant ass or as he once put a "bully who got bullied." I'm not bashing Sherman per say because I like the dude, and think like everyone else here that he's great, but I mean if Revis done this or a 49er done this to another player on the seahawks would you be happy about it? (Aldon Smith to Chris Clemons)

    I think Sherman needs to tone down his words unless he goes out there and has a monster game which I'm sure he'll have one again.

  • I can't believe the negativity coming from fans. You're mad at him because he's excited to ball and he's worked his ass off so no one is better than him?

    I want our CBs to get in the WR/QBs head. I want them to take a split second to spot where Sherm is on the field.

    He's not talking about someone's mom or family... he's talking football. He's saying, come beat me. Let's build it up and make it happen on the field. He doesn't fight people, he doesn't bring people down, he props himself up and proves it on Sunday.

    It's gross that so many fans on here are against that. I guess we can always bring back Kelly Jennings, he was 'dignified'.
    I enjoy ruining threads by making them about personal attacks and then commenting about how personal attacks make the other person's argument invalid.

    He's one of the best, if not the absolute best, CB in the league. He has a huge chip on his shoulder for falling to the 5th round. If this gets him motivated, who are we to tell him to shut up? His play backs up his talk, I love it.



    Me too. I'm glad we have some players with a new attitude. Some balls for once. And of course this won't go unpunished by those one here that feel it is out of line.
    He doesnt kick ass the way they feel he should....Whatever.

  • My praise of Sherman proves I'm a niner fan? I even said Sherman should be arrogant a little since he's one of the best in the game arguably the best.

    Most of what I said I was praising Sherman for goodness sake I have a little problem with his attitude, not his play, but even then I'm not entirely against his cocky personality. I was talking about fans hypocrisy about how they can't see past their own hatred most of the time of an opposing team or player unless that player join their own ball club.

    The two things aren't exclusive. There are plenty of players who are the best at their position in the league that aren't so damn obnoxious. I love the guy, but he needs to tone it down.

    I'm not a niners fan, but they have things I like about them.

    I'm a Texan fan :(

    I'm not a Seahawk fan either, but I do like things about them. They're a young aggressive team, and I'm a big fan of Marshawn Lynch and his style of running which I could strangely watch forever since I think he's easily a top 3 back in the league. :shock:

    I think this is the best defense of Sherman. Put it succinctly Seahawks weren't getting a lot of respect even though they were a difficult team to beat for a good while. Once Sherman started talking to Brady after the game people started to notice a bit more, and he's one of the reasons why the Seahawks are getting more respect now, and his loudmouth does make people notice him more and the team also.

    Sherman can be a bit of a jerk, but the guy can play and can back up any trash talking he does.

    :th2thumbs:

    That was good. I do wish people would stop picking on the littlest and most obvious guy around though. Sherm shines as brightly when compared to someone like Trufant, IMO. People talked tons of shit in Wee Willie Williams for forever, too and that dude was a warrior (with limitations).

  • I think Sherman is awesome. It's all about mis-direction and mirrors boyos. Get into the other guys' head and it makes the job that much easier, and from what we've seen, he's been able to back it up. What's the problem?? Haven't we all just been aching for a guy like this on our team? I think it's hilarious.

    Or maybe hes just reminding the Hawks of his value because of the Revis trade rumors.

  • I understand that PR and smacktalk and ESPN and NFL Network 'respect' (ie circle jerks) are widely coveted around here. We want attention.... I just want to win. That requires players. We have a bunch now. Sherm is one of them and while I love his game, I'm not a fan of the schtick. It crosses (or flirts with crossing) a line for me. It's a line we all have for players of other teams. And our lines differ amongst ourselves. That's okay. It's just my preference. I hope I have explained myself well enough in this thread as to why.

    Everybody is so eager to choose one side or the other and demonize the opposite side around here, it seems.

    Oh well.

    Good times.

  • When a late round draft pick becomes a starter, and then one of the best corners in the NFL, the last thing I think about is changing a damn thing about the guy. Sherm is our defensive attitude, and next to Wilson the face of the franchise. Screw class, talk all the crap you want Sherman. Every time you make a play on a ball I hug myself thinking about all the times Kelly Jennings was in perfect position and was helpless while a large WR pulled in the catch.
