Sherman is a complete idiot. A total classless act
Being a Seahawks fan makes me terribly biased. That said, Sherman might be loud but hes no idiot. He went to school at Stanford after having grown up in Compton. His parents seem like really down to earth, hard working people.
Sherman is not terribly athletic but the dude has gone from a fifth round pick to one of the best corners in the game of football. Hes also parlayed his success on the field into a weekly SI column, and other lucrative endorsements, supplementing his modest 500K in salary. The fact that hes being talked about on NBR is evidence that his chatting is helping to create his brand. Earlier this year he offered that he loves talking shit to keep his pen sharp. To be honest, when that ball to Crabtree went up last night, my first reaction was fuck, is Richard Shermans karma gonna get us. Instead, he went up and sealed the game. Like everyone else on the field, he fucking talks, but he also backs that shit up.
I had to grit my teeth through the interview last night, but there is also something refreshing about getting an unscripted response. What would you expect an emotional person to say 30 seconds after making the play that won the game to put his team in the Super Bowl? Id like to thank God etc? A pretty good explanation from the man himself
