The bandwagon is filling up with guys in the NFL who don’t like Richard Sherman or feel his skills are overrated. You can add DeAngelo Hall to theat growing list.
According to Hall, statistically Sherman may be the best, but he has a lot of help as well.
“They play a lot of Cover 3, but their Cover 3 is predicated on their corners pressing,” he said. “All their linebackers still drop in coverage, obviously they have a heck of a rush, they have probably the best safety in the game; actually, two safeties, because I love Kam Chancellor.”
Hall was a guest on 106.7 The Fan, where he said that “it’s screwed that Sherman is dubbed the best corner in the NFL.”
“To say he’s the best corner in the game is a little bit, um … I guess screwed,” Hall said. “Because I love Patrick Peterson myself, personally, just things that guy does on the football field is just exciting. But you can’t deny Richard Sherman’s numbers. His numbers have been amazing.
“But like you said, he’s out there playing the guys to the sideline, and there’s not too many routes a guy can run when their numbers split from the sideline, and you don’t want to run inside with those fierce safeties.”
“I definitely think he’s the best at what they want him to do, what they ask him to do,” Hall told 106.7 The Fan’s Grant and Danny on Tuesday. “To sit there and say he’s the best corner in the game is probably not fair because of what they’re defense asks him to do.”
