Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman Is Inexperienced, but Invaluable

"He's probably one of the most overrated receivers out there. He wasn't anything special..." he "...is just a lot of noise-talking and bad routes."

Those were the choice words rookie cornerback Richard Sherman used to describe sensational (or not so sensational) rookie receiver AJ Green in an interview on KJR radio in Seattle.

I suppose it is okay to be confident when you have a hand in two impressive interceptions in your last game and hold said receiver to 63 yards on four catches, the biggest of which coming when he was not your assignment.

However, the general vibe I got was that lots of people were irked by these comments. My question to them is...why?

Football is a very emotional game, and I would rather have him going in there with all the confidence in the world than try to restrain himself emotionally. I like a player that goes all out.

I doubt Richard will be as brash in the future, but I don't care if you are Tom Brady and Adrian Peterson or AJ Feely and some teams backup long snapper...if you don't go into every game with the belief that you are the greatest player, you don't have the right attitude.

Richard Sherman made a big splash in his first game action, and this team really needed his boost. With a sagging secondary due to injuries to both Marcus Trufant and Walter Thurmond, he and Brandon Browner become imposing figures...the most physical duo of corners in the NFL.

No one expected much of the Stanford product against the Bengals and I'm sure not many expect the play to cross into the Jerrydome.

Lets hope that his confidence stays right where it is, and lets hope that his first game was more a display of things to come and not a mere aberration.

We might need two turnovers to make a game of it with Dallas, and Tony Romo has just the kind of inconsistent arm that could make it happen.

 

@RSherman_25 they talk bad about you on sportsnation. Forget Aj Green! #12thman

@mrborntowin lol I'm not worried bout that.... They can say whatever they would like. Doesn't affect me in the least. They will understand very soon
