Richard Sherman says suspensions “nothing to worry about”

Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor ( AP

Before Seattle Seahawks cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner issued a joint statement through the team that they would no longer be addressing their looming four-game suspensions publicly, Sherman did speak briefly to the situation he’s facing on Wednesday.

Just like his play on the field, Sherman is supremely confident in himself and that things will work out in his favor.

“Nothing different,” Sherman said in regards to if focus was lacking this week due to the situation he’s in. “It’s not tough at all. This is the same old routine for us. Regardless of what’s going on, you just go out there and play football. That’s the good thing about the game, you can just go out there and play, you ain’t got to worry about nothing. And there’s nothing to worry about in the first place.
“It doesn’t affect me at all, because it happens like that in life. There are always misunderstandings and mishaps, and all you can do is continue to go about your job the same way you’ve been going about it and let everything play itself out.”
Sherman and Browner are currently appealing the suspensions after being informed last week they were facing four-game suspensions for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Both have said, either directly or through an agent, that they did not take anything illegal and are challenging the positive tests.
Not many players have managed to be successful in getting positive tests overturned, so why does Sherman feel so confident that their situations will be different?
“Because the truth always comes out,” Sherman said. “You just go on, the process is going to play out how it’s going to play out. When you know what you know, you just continue to be confident and continue to go out and play.”
Until the appeals are completed, both Sherman and Browner are eligible to play for Seattle. They are expected to be available to play this Sunday as the Seahawks travel to face the Chicago Bears.

    CHEATERS never win and winners never cheat. Bears will win in a blow out. Cutler for MVP.

    SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHH!

    Pete Carroll needs to give this genius a pacifier. Stop talking.

    If they can shut CJ down, why would Cutler/Marshall have any chance? Loss.

    Yeah take the Suh approach to things see how far that takes you.

    It’s amazing how many people are on Sherman’s case because he responded to Tom Brady’s challenge to “see him after the game” when Brady requested he do so when the Patriots were up by 13 points.

    And then oh what a travesty – he changed his twitter handle to “optimus prime”.

    The fact that some football fans think responding to brady’s badgering and changing a twitter name for fun suddenly makes sherman a ‘trash talker’ who doesn’t deserve a fair shake makes me realize why it’s so easy for the NFL to start spoon feeding us watered down baby-diaper football.

    Can anyone actually come up with any incendiary unproved Sherman “trash talk”? No. Ok then.

    I wonder if anyone has asked Jim Harbaugh if Sherman was treated for ADHD when he coached him at Stanford.

    Sherman said “you ain’t got to worry about nothing. And there’s nothing to worry about in the first place.”

    When did the word “ain’t” replace the word “don’t “?

    “Richard ain’t take those PEDS”
    “Richard ain’t commit pass interference”
    “Richard ain’t let them score”

    Somehow I don’t believe the guy ….oh snap! Wait… My bad.. Let me rephrase “I ain’t believe the guy”

    This team is full of tools… these moron corners think there are deon and revis ! You’re team is 500 and you’re not that good.. You would be under 500 if you didn’t cheat against the packers.. That idiot Tate breaks into donut shops and your coach and qb are the biggest whiners in the NFL… This team will never be great and Carrol sucks in the NFl just like his understudy Kiffin sucks at USC – couple of overrated hacks!!

    Did Stanford lower their academic standards for Dick Sherman?

  12. ahosfield says: Nov 29, 2012 1:57 AM

    I think Sherman’s comments are a bit over confident and border on arrogant. I think he is on the right track in not letting the issue affect his daily routine, but he could have presented his feelings a bit more diplomatically. I’m also curious to learn more about the rules regarding ADHD medicine and why it is considered an illegal substance in the NFL? I appreciate your ‘to the point’ post and it was interested to hear the quotes from the players. Curious to see how this all plays out!

    I thought drug tests were random, why were both of Seattle’s starting corners tested at the same time?

    Probably shouldn’t call anyone a tool, when you refer to yourself as stlpimp

    I probably would have put a muzzle on them long before they BOTH came out with those nonsense excuses.

  16. whatjusthapped says: Nov 29, 2012 6:39 AM

    There is a general “stink” that hangs over the Seahawks. It starts with a morally bankrupt head coach who couldn’t flee USC fast enough thereby avoiding any consequences for the illegal behavior under his command.

    Then you have their odd boasting after the worst call in NFL history. Instead of just taking the gift wrapped W, they gloat about it.

    Karma is real and it is about to pay a visit to the Seahawks.

    “It’s amazing how many people are on Sherman’s case because he responded to Tom Brady’s challenge to “see him after the game” when Brady requested he do so when the Patriots were up by 13 points.”

    No. That’s not the point. When someone gets in someone’s face … and has that crazy ‘you wanna fight’ look … then you can’t help but wonder what’s wrong with the guy. And now we know. Now we understand why he … and lots of other Seahawks … have been acting so damn weird.

    kylexitron Sherman is a trash talker, as is Brady, but there is nothing wrong with that. And that is totally different than using PED’s. He does deserve a fair shake.

  19. ccjcsr says: Nov 29, 2012 8:03 AM

    They must have misremembered taking anything

    TB never actually said that…even by Sherman’s own admission. When he was asked about it, SHERMAN was putting voice to what he thought the look on TB’s face meant when he was yapping at him. Hey, I’m of the school that if you win you can talk even though I don’t like it unless it’s a response to something the other team did (which it wasn’t in Sherman’s case). But TB did nothing wrong here.

    Cheating just seems to follow old Petey, but I’m sure its not his fault.

    “Then you have their odd boasting after the worst call in NFL history. Instead of just taking the gift wrapped W, they gloat about it.”

    Who boasted and gloated about it? Is celebrating winning a game on a hail mary, boasting and gloating? Or are you not allowed to be happy about winning a game, regardless of whether a call went your way or not?

    “There is a general “stink” that hangs over the Seahawks”

    Really? It must stink pretty good because they had one of the worst rosters in pro football just a couple years ago and have quickly turned into a young team with a scary defense and as much promise and upside as any team in the league.

    Jealousy is a stinky cologne. You might want to get a grip on that.

    You’re right, when they “shut down” CJ, the Seahawks lost.
