Richard Sherman Says He Won’t Be Shaking Hands After 49ers Game

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals

We all know how much Richard Sherman likes to talk. When asked about the upcoming NFC championship game between his Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers, the cornerback openly expressed his distaste for their NFC rival.


“There’s no love lost and there’s no love found,” the Seahawks cornerback said Wednesday. “I don’t know if there’s going to be handshakes after this one. It’s going to be intense and it’s going to be physical.”

The Seahawks host the 49ers in the NFC championship game at CenturyLink Field. When asked if he hated the 49ers Sherman responded saying:

“I don’t hate anyone,” Sherman said. “But passion, definitely. There’ll be dislike, strong dislike. It’s playoff football, so there’ll be a lot of intensity, anyway, even if we weren’t two teams very familiar with each other. But there’s going to be a lot of chippiness in a hard-fought game. The two best teams in the NFC are the ones that are here.”

The two teams split their division matchups this season both winning at home. The hype surrounding this game with the media making Russell Wilson out to be the good guy and Colin Kaepernick out to be the bad guy is enough to have me counting down the seconds until this game kicks off.
