Over the past few days, two Seahawks have publicly offered differing opinions on the Black Lives Matter movement, police brutality, poverty, and a host of related issues. In the usually anodyne world of athlete press conferences, it’s really something.
If there’s anyone you’d expect to be sucking on the sourest grapes while discussing Tom Brady’s Ballghazi suspension and the ensuing kerfuffle, it would probably be the Super Bowl losers. But Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is not that dude, and he is rightfully in Brady’s corner.
According to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, all-pro cornerback Richard Sherman will be undergoing Tommy John surgery to repair the elbow injury he suffered during the NFC Championship game.
Tonight's Saturday Night Live cold open featuring "Richard Sherman" and a reticent-as-always "Marshawn Lynch" improved greatly over last week's weak Ballghazi-themed effort. Jay Pharoah pulls out a pretty solid attempt at Sherman's intensity.
Pretty much everything was asked about during the three days of press conferences during Super Bowl week. Few answers were as good as the Seahawks' Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett on the NCAA, which Bennett called "one of the biggest scams in America."
Richard Sherman and his girlfriend are expecting the birth of their first child in a week or so. But if he (it's a boy, and they've got a name picked out, but won't share it yet) comes on Sunday, Sherman says "obviously that'd change some things."
The Seahawks have arrived in Arizona, and while many players have declared that it's time to start focusing on football(big game next Sunday, you know) instead of the deflation scandal, Richard Sherman didn't hesitate to fire the first shots and predict the Patriots will get off scot-free because owner Robert Kraft is…
It's never good to get armbar'd by your own teammate, but that happened in the fourth quarter to Seattle's Richard Sherman, who has yet to tap out; despite being in visible pain, he's remained in the game.
Yesterday, Seattle Seahawks corner/provocateur Richard Sherman used a mandated media availability (and a life-sized cardboard cutout of Doug Baldwin) to mock the NFL for fining Marshawn Lynch $100,000 for refusing to talk to reporters two weeks ago, for blatant hypocrisy, and for expecting its athletes to behave like…
This is so good. At his weekly meeting with the press, Seahawks corner Richard Sherman, a cardboard cutout of Doug Baldwin, and the disembodied voice of actual Doug Baldwin teamed up for a skit that took shots at the money-hungry NFL and stood up for teammate Marshawn Lynch, who was fined $100,000 for failing to talk…
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has always walked a fine line between showman and dickbag. After infuriating Pierre Garçon to the point of hair-pulling, and dismissing his football worth entirely, I bet I could guess which side Garçon would come down on.
Richard Sherman was the least-targeted corner in the NFL last season, and still managed to rack up the most interceptions. In Week 1 against the Packers, Aaron Rodgers didn't give him a single look. For Week 2, the Chargers say they weren't scared of Sherman for a second.
A brief dramatization of the events leading up to this photo of some dude and Not Richard Sherman:
Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson just signed a $70 million contract extension, meaning he's now making about the same amount of money as Seahawks corner Richard Sherman, with whom Peterson has had an ongoing Twitter feud. Naturally, Peterson celebrated his extension with a shot at Sherman:
Seahawks corner Richard Sherman—fresh off signing a four-year extension including $40 million guaranteed—sat down for an interview with Time in which he was asked how the NFL would react if faced with a situation like the one the NBA confronted with Donald Sterling.
Richard Sherman has written another post for The MMQB, and this time he is wading into the mess of stupid that has bubbled up around DeSean Jackson's release from the Eagles and alleged gang ties. It's the smartest thing that's been written about the situation yet.
