Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman wants to be known as one of the league’s top corners, and he wants the respect for his team that he feels they deserve.
He’s loudly taking care of both.
Sherman went back and forth with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and got the last laugh after the Seahawks upset the Patriots at Qwest Field.
Sherman has now turned his attention to the media and anyone else not giving Seattle their proper respect according to NFL.com.
“It’s not a shock for us, we believe we have a great ball club, we believe we can play with anybody,” Sherman said. “You know, NFL Network and all these pundits think they know everything. Well we keep shutting them up week by week by week. We are playing great.
“They thought (New England) was the greatest ball club to step on the earth. They are 3-3, .500. I don’t know what great ball club is 3-3. We got great players. Me and Earl (Thomas) walked up to (Brady) and we said, ‘We are greater than you. We are better than you. You’re just a man. We are a team. We are a team, you are a single man.’ ”
“I am pretty jacked, I am pretty jacked. I wish I was going on NFL Network to tell them all exactly how I feel, but I don’t get a chance. If ya’ll could, let them know, that would be great.”
Sherman can run his mouth right now, but until the Seattle offense catches up with the defense, the Seahawks will still just be pretty good.
