Did they have too? Is this little league baseball?
The way Sherman acted, it might be. Point is, i know players in the heat of the moment do and say stupid things. But yes, tradition states it is simple courtesy to thank or acknowledge the other team after the game. You know, like being a grownup.
I still remember the game against the Vikings this year. Sherman was yawning after every pass by Minny, blabbering like "this is all too easy" but then he got beat badly over the top by Jarius Wright. It is documented on one of those NFL Gameday cutups. Can't look more stupid than that. Then how about Roddy White owning him in last year's Playoffs... very good Player, no question, but not nearly as good as he thinks...
With that said, it couldnt have happened to a more deserving Team like the 49ers. Harbaugh, Crabtree etc. are all classless jerks...
He can talk **** all he wants, he's the best. Until somebody shuts him up he's free to talk trash because he backs it up. Crabtree I guess talked **** to him before the game and Sherman finished the fight. The 49ers were taunting Cam Newton all the way last week for no reason, now the favor has been returned so stop *****ing.
You guys need to lighten up a little. That was a very emotional and heated game and it obviously spills over to the post game. Hard to control those raging PED hormones. I can only imagine the stuff that was going on during the game. The 49ers dish it out pretty well, Boldin and Crab aren't shy.
My oldest son (13) thought it was cool and funny what Sherman did. I told him if he ever did anything so cocky and selfish after a football game, I'd run out to the field and slap him. What an embarrassment this clown Sherman is....
Crabtree was jawing hard at him and he just made the GW play of his life against him...dude was jacked way the hell up on adrenaline. He acted foolish, but he didn't curse and he didn't threaten anyone. He just scared a bunch of white people. Relax.
Clearly a group of people who wanted to see SF win haten on a great play by an awesome player with passion and an obvious chip on his shoulder, and a group of people who clearly don't care who wins or Seattle fans having no problem watching a great play by an awesome player with passion and an obvious chip on his shoulder. Either way I wish we had him or players like him on the Jets, players that go out and give 110% every down of every game.
If Crabtree was truly talking sh1t, than good for Sherman, beat the bully at his own game.
I am going to cut him some slack. He got caught up in the emotion and didn't have much time to come down a notch before the interview. People are going to make too big a deal out of this. Sherman is a severe trash talker but probably not the "outta control lunatic" that the media will describe for the next 2 weeks as filler during the SB hype machine.
He does a real disservice to his team with manic crap like that. But I am looking forward t the SB when the Broncos face the Sherman. LOB.
