  • I personally don't mind it. I've said time and time again that he is like the GP of the NFL. When he gets in the offense's head and makes plays like that, it puts a smile on my face. It's even more satisfying when I see opposing team's fans getting pissed off about it, yet they would probably welcome him on their team in a heartbeat.

    I know some people think it's classless and unnecessary, and that it gives us a bad image.

    Let's see how the opinions weigh out.

  • People are going to have their philosophical differences but as long as he's supporting the team and backing up what he says I would hope those guys sit on their hands, grit their teeth, and just enjoy the benefits of having a player of his caliber in spite of those differences. The Larry Fitzgerald demeanor isn't for everyone.

  • Sherman is the man . I remember thinking to myself last year around week 10 and thinking man this kid gets excited when he makes a play. Overly excited. but then week after week its how he plays great.
    I hope it doesnt change and I do not mind anything he does on the field.


    not arguing that he could show more respect off the field , because he defintly could.

  • Doesn't bug me one bit. He's never made the trash talk personal in regards to having to do with off the field stuff. It's usually always about dfootball as far as I can tell.

    If he were to start calling people out in their personal lives and saying stuff about people and talking smack about things not in regards to football, then it would get on my nerves, but he doesn't do that to my knowledge.

    He does some good old fashioned football smack talk, and he's not anywhere near the first to talk this much smack, and he can back it all up as good as anyone out there.

  • Love it, but I thought his recent thing against Revis was kind of crossing the line. If Seattle had been playing the Jets that week, maybe it's different. But to me it came across as not showing enough respect to one of the NFL's greatest current players.

    Up until then, I thought Sherman deserved absolutely none of the shit he got from the media. Sherman is a totally cool guy that's just having fun for the most part. Plus, I think it's part of why he's so good. He's talking himself up, if you believe it you can be it.

  • Perhaps a more telling thread would be 'How would you like Sherm's trash talking if he played for the 9ers'?

    I think the honest answers would be...."not very much".

    That's how I feel about it.

  • Couldn't care less. If he wasn't good and didn't get all-pro this year, maybe I'd say tone it down. He's a monster, though, and it makes him do even better on the field.

    But he does NOT play for the 9er's. So perhaps not very telling :stirthepot:

    My response would be the same regardless of which team he played for... the dude backs it up with his play on the field. The only time trash talk ever bothers me is when it's coming from someone who is all mouth, no game. That sure as hell ain't Sherman.

    Love the attitude on the field and when he is playing. Love the swagger and confidence. Not a fan of his twitter trash talk though.

  • For the most part, my brother, he keeps his trash talking to the current team we played that week. Now, my brother, if he starts taking it to the streets and trash talking then I'd feel he's making himself and the team look foolish. Then, my brother, it comes off disrespectful and classless.

  • trash talk and the swagger on the field, have no problem with.. this latest Revis twitter thing i didn't care for, and waving bye and telling the redskin crowd to drive safe and beat the traffic was a bit low and unnecessary... i wouldn't mind him trimming that stuff back a bit... so i guess that makes me a niner fan according to the thread title.

  • This league seriously misses having a player like PrimeTime, so I'm happy to have a Hawk on the team who reminds me of the best player to ever play the game. He beat you with his play on the field, and his mouth in your ear. And I think Sherman has the potential to get THIS good, which will be fun as hell to watch:

  • I have not been vaginified, so I think it's hella dope. Add it to the list of things Kelly Jennings would never do (along with "defend passes" and "get interceptions").

    As a matter of fact, I love it so much that if I ever were to be vaginafied, I would take advantage of that and have Richard Sherman's baby. I love him THAT much.


    Lol. That baby would talk so much shit...

    The only thing I would say is that I don't think Sherm did anything "against" Revis. He wasn't trying to denigrate anybody, he was trying to promote himself, IMO, which I have no problem with. :Dunno:

  • I love that it gets under everybody's skin so much. It seems to get them off their game.

    Also not a fan of his twitter trash talk. Not a really big fan of him regularly giving the other team bulletin board material.

    It kind of bothered me his rookie year, cuz he was talking trash and hadn't worked his game up to that level. Now that he's elite, I'm good with it on the field.

    I just hope Sherman doesn't end up like Terrell Owens when he is close to retirement, or has come to the time when he should retire but refuses.. Still talking trash when his prime has passed and all the young, talented players are destroying him.

  • I wish there was an option "I think it kicks ass".

    But really... The real reason I like it is because Niner fans HATE it. I take joy in knowing that everything that happens with the Hawks pisses off some arrogant, self-proclaimed football icon Niner fan.

    What makes it even better is that Sherman hates that Ultra-Next-Level Douche Harbaugh. Those ball-sacks are fans of a team going to the Super-Bowl and they are still complaining about Sherman and the Hawks.

  • As long as he continues to walk the walk he can talk the talk.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken. The OLine still needs work.

  • I should clarify my actual position on the mouth of Sherm. On the field..I couldn't care less. He can tell players their wives taste like honey nut cheerios for all I care. What I don't like is the off field nonsense (which has already been defined in this thread) or the way he called out the NFL because he knew he was about to get off on a technicality...even though he likely cheated. Best to just STFU about such things.

    To my initial post....IF Sherman WAS a Niner (yes, I know he's not) and engaging in such antics, 99% of you would hate his guts. You're lyin' if you say any different. I like Sherman cuz he's a Hawk. If he wasn't, I'd be hoping for someone to slap the taste out of his mouth.

You won't see the field. I like Sherman's ability but his actions are juvenile. If he is as good as he thinks......keep your mouth shut and let your actions speak for you.

    Yeah, just as I would hate Lynch, Wilson, Browner, Thomas etc etc etc if they were niners too.
    He'd be getting under our skin, which is something you want from your players - I'd say 99% of people who aren't Pats fans hate Tom Brady, it's good play that breeds hate, trash talking just adds fuel to that hatred to make it more venomous.

    If Kelly Jennings was a trash talker would people hate him? Nah, they'd PITY him. People hated TO, Deion Sanders, etc because they talked trash, then went out and broke records on the field

  • I can understand the people who do not like his talking, however given the position he plays, it is a huge tactical advantage to be able to get in the heads of the wide receivers. It is the same as a big hitting safety who receivers are leery of going over the middle against. As far as the off the field stuff that have some perturbed, a lot of the twitter stuff is in response to people who are taking shots at him. You'd rather him just keep quite while people take shots at him?
