Richard Sherman Compares himself to Jesus

Richard Sherman

Just when one couldn’t think that Richard Sherman could get any more ‘real’ with his no holds barred commentary he drops this gem after speaking with USA Today in regards to all things Redskins and testing positive for PED’s

“Everybody has haters…People think Jesus didn’t exist. They think he wasn’t a miracle worker. There are people who say he didn’t walk on water, or he only walked on water because he couldn’t swim. Those people’s opinions mean dirt to me.”

Ok, so it’s clear Richard Sherman has a chip on his shoulder for the criticism he took for the positive drug tests…but what does Jesus have to do with anything? Since Jesus wasn’t available for comment, I’m just going to have to assume that Sherman is confident in his talents and is salivating at a chance of redemption.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the NFL Cornerback has become the new ‘diva’ position in the sport. Sorry, wide receivers.

  • I’m sure a Stanford educated man would make that statement for national media. This was the biggest waste of an article/web space/Wordpress routing I’ve ever encountered. Keep it up Ashley, really relaying the good stuff out there!

  • Yea Jesus didn’t take speed and get caught and point the finger. Also Jesus accepted what was coming. Sherman should be tested for coke and meth cause he is delusional. He isn’t champ bailey he didn’t need drugs.

  • Where in this article does Richard Sherman compare himself to Jesus or even say anything close to that? I’m so tired of all the media bad mouthing a guy who is hands down one of the top CB in NFL for comments he made about other players who are also commenting about him (Tom Brady). Lets face it… it’s the nature of the position to be cocky, and think you are the best to play the game. Look at Prime-Time! After all CB are responsible for covering the biggest, fastest, and best jumpers in the NFL, and Richard Sherman has shown that he can shut down the best of them (Welker, Bryant, Marshall, Jennings, Johnson). So in my opinion he has earned the right to self proclaim he is the best CB in the NFL. And as far as the Adderall thing… get over it. Quit crying because everyone know Adderall is only used by players for film study, not to increase their playing ability.

  • This headline defines irresponsible journalism plaguing the media and in turn the public. Ashley you should be ashamed of yourself. Even though the content of your article was pointless, it’s your prerogative to waste your time writing it. What is offensive to any intelligent person is your blatant disregard for the truth with the title of said pointless article. I’m sure you’re enjoying this attention because anyone who would behave in this way obviously loves any kind of attention whether positive or not, but if you take a step back and look at yourself as a journalist I hope you’re at least a little embarrassed. Disgusting.

    • I guess you’re going to copy and paste your comment and put it on the sites of the hundreds of other major publications who gave similar/identical takes on the matter, right? Please, stop embarrassing yourself.

      • Youre a retard ashley, don’t deny it. You were wrong in writing this garbage and because of it your credibility is 0. Dumb tart

  • What a terrible article using a quote taken out of context? WTF kind of sports news is this? This article sucks so hard, they use the old picture of Richard Sherman on top of everything!! Nothing right in this article and the author is an idiot. Nuff said. GO SEAHAWKS
