Sherman Says “It Was In The Moment…”
Are you still trying to figure out why Richard Sherman was so, excited after his Seahawks beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game last night? Like most of America, you’re probably wondering why he ripped Michael Crabtree in his post-game interview.
In a column, by MMBQ Sherman reveals why he went off on Crabtree after the game. He also talks about why he directed a choking sign at Colin Kaepernick. He throws some shots at Brandon Weeden,Brian Hoyer, and Jason Campbell while illustrating a point about Crabtree. He touches on some other issues and questions but leaving with a strong quote about his actions.
“It was loud, it was in the moment, and it was just a small part of the person I am. I don’t want to be a villain, because I’m not a villainous person. When I say I’m the best cornerback in football, it’s with a caveat: There isn’t a great defensive backfield in the NFL that doesn’t have a great front seven. Everything begins with pressure up front, and that’s what we get from our pass rushers every Sunday. To those who would call me a thug or worse because I show passion on a football field—don’t judge a person’s character by what they do between the lines. Judge a man by what he does off the field, what he does for his community, what he does for his family.”
