I'm not a huge Richard Sherman fan. I think he's a great player, has a lot of intelligence and seems like a good guy in the community, but I've never liked the guys who have to constantly talk about how great they are (Crabtree isn't close to the only person he's had an issue with / talked trash about). I think in his case he may need some of that swagger to psych him into being as good as he is but still...I saw an article awhile back about how his high school coach tried to tell him to stop the trash talking once, Sherman played a horrid first half and the coach gave up and realized that's just who he is. I think there are better ways to psych yourself up for a game, but I don't play professional football. One thing that pissed me off with Sherman was his reference to a "BS holding call" when he apologized. If you play physical defense and grab jerseys, you are going to get flagged at times. The Seahawks have realized that they'll cause more problems for offenses with that style of play than they'll suffer for getting flagged. It's a smart strategy. Same with Denver's constant picks / offensive PI. It works and they know they'll get away with it. Nothing wrong with pushing the envelope a bit and seeing what you can get away with. Just don't whine when the flags come out at times.
