Richard Sherman warns “ignorant idiots” to not doubt them again

Sherman Getty Images

Once again, the Seahawks spanked the 49ers in Seattle. Once again, cornerback Richard Sherman showed grace, poise, and class in victory.

“There are a lot of pundits and ignorant idiots who thought, ‘Oh, the Seahawks are gonna lose this game.’ Well, please, please don’t doubt us again,” Sherman told NBC’s Michele Tafoya after the 29-3 win. “Every time you doubt us, you look stupid.”

Sherman shut down 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin, who went from 200-plus yards against the Packers to one catch on Sunday night.  And Sherman was quick to point out that the lone reception didn’t occur when Sherman was covering Boldin.  (The teammate who gave up that reception surely appreciates that.)

We’ll agree with Sherman that it’s foolish to doubt the Seahawks at home. On the road, it’s a different issue — as evidenced by last week’s 12-7 win over the Panthers.

Since the Seahawks will be playing half of their remaining 14 games at home, including one at San Francisco, a little humility would serve Sherman well.

When the Seahawks play at home, humble pie will never be on the menu.  And for good reason.

    Que the whining 49ers fans in 3…2…1…

    Love you guys getting upset at a player when he calls you out but you can say anything you want. Love it

    GO HAWKS

  3. offthelows says: Sep 16, 2013 1:46 AM

    Remember, Florio picked the Niners.. I’m sure he’s not referring to you though, Mike.

  4. losanginsight says: Sep 16, 2013 1:47 AM

    Somewhere an eye brow should be shaved off.

  5. sweetnlow44 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:48 AM

    Oh give it up, Florio. He does it because he gets reactions like this from people with a public voice, like you.

  6. chrismatthewsucks says: Sep 16, 2013 1:49 AM

    Seahawks are for real.

  7. calicokiller49 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:54 AM

    I don’t know what worse, having to listen to this, or having to listen to all the Seahawks fans……probably the fans because we will be hearing about this game, and unfortunately the last game, probably for years to come..until these guys can prove they can win on the road, wich they can’t, they are still gonna be #2 in the NFC, they have to come to San Francisco in December, and I promise this clown won’t be getting any camera time after the game.

  8. seattlelgt says: Sep 16, 2013 1:54 AM

    Who cares? He said what a lot of us think about the so-called experts out there. Let me guess, Florio, you picked the 9ers to win? Are you mad, bro? Sherman might talk a lot, but he backs that mouth of his up, as displayed today with 1 INT and completely shutting Boldin down. Florio, you hate Sherman because he hates guys like you.

  9. dstep24 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:54 AM

    The moment Richard Sherman is “humbled” which doesn’t happen often, he doesn’t tuck his tail between his legs and run away (as Kaepernick did tonight when he ran off the field without shaking any hands). Instead, he does what he did in the Atlanta game last year on the ONE big play he gave up to Roddy White. He stood there, took the back-talk and even clapped for White.

    Florio, you’ve been hoping for and predicting Pete Carroll’s downfall since he came into the league after you accused him of cheating at USC many times over, without substantive evidence thereof (which is a bit surprising for a lawyer…or maybe its not).

    You wanted the league to overturn the SEA/GB finish.

    You’ve put so much energy into wishing Seattle misfortune.

    But all that keeps happening, is Seattle keeps winning, and continues to prove you wrong.

    And Richard Sherman did nothing but back up everything he said tonight.

    We know you’re one of the doubters, which is why you’re clearly chapped at Sherman’s comments tonight. But tell me what more Sherman has to do to prove that his comments tonight were accurate.

    Get over your Pete Carroll issues, and see this team for what it is. They’re pretty fun to watch if you remove the blinders.

  10. bigshirk says: Sep 16, 2013 1:56 AM

    Sherman is the biggest douche in the NFL.

  11. thegreatgabbert says: Sep 16, 2013 1:56 AM

    Ha, ha, ha….of all the hundreds of thousands of PFT viewers I wonder if there was one who clicked on the button to open Sherman’s mouth? Probably not.

  12. bigshirk says: Sep 16, 2013 1:57 AM

    Tool.

  13. trollhammer20 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:58 AM

    I have the jerseys of two current Seahawks: Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman.

    Know why? Did you ever see “Full Metal Jacket”? It’s the duality of man. You know, the Jungian thing.

  14. ecupatsfan12 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:00 AM

    By ignorant idiots I’m sure he’s referring to none other than Skip Bayless. But in all seriousness man, the niners looked flat all night. The seahawks are very very good defensively…they just shut down a team that tore up GBs defense through the air…should be interesting what comes next.

  15. ecupatsfan12 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:01 AM

    Jim Harbaugh heard this and said to Sherm to see him with the hands.

  16. pushn50 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:01 AM

    Sherman speaks the truth. Everyone was ready to crown the 40 whiners the best team in the NFC West before the season started. The whiners didn’t even look like they belonged in this game tonight!

    I wonder if Kaeprnick – who got completely OWNED tonight – will make good on his bet and shave his eyebrow? Doubt it! I’m sure he and Harwaaahhhh will whine and makes excuses for why it wasn’t their fault they got completely destroyed tonight!

  17. gloryfromheaven says: Sep 16, 2013 2:01 AM

    Well…… He’s right, 49er fans should agree.

  18. rjkilla says: Sep 16, 2013 2:03 AM

    PEDS….half the team has been busted for it. keep yapping cheaters(not a niners fan)

  19. praetorian12 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:04 AM

    I rarely agree with Collinsworth, but when he said to pencil Sherman in for Pro Bowl already, I’d have to agree. He’s OWNED his half of the field, and he catches more passes than the receivers he covers.

  20. possumsauce says: Sep 16, 2013 2:05 AM

    Sherman sure makes it easy to dislike him.

  21. pacificnw7722 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:06 AM

    Love or hate him, he right!!

  22. bljacobs01 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:06 AM

    Florio – Don’t be a chump. Give credit where credit is due. You are better then this….

  23. seatownballers says: Sep 16, 2013 2:07 AM

    I honestly respect the niners, their history and current tough old school style team. But this Sunday has shown that their big mouthed fans are ill informed idiots. They bashed us. Niner Fans came to Seattle bars this weekend in support of their team, boasting an easy victory. All you clowns, trolls, and haters can eat a fat one. Seattle dominated ya.
    Accept it. No peds needed. We can beat ya by 26 In the rain

  24. mf1849 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:08 AM

    All this gushing and fawning over Sherman is a little overboard. We get it: You’re a fan. Please…a little professionalism for your next hack piece.

  25. joestemme says: Sep 16, 2013 2:09 AM

    As long as they play at home. Two different teams. IF they can secure home field advantage – watch out. If not, these ‘ignorant idiots’ may turn out correct in the end…….

  26. osiris33 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:10 AM

    Complete physical dominance by a superior team. Get used to it Florio. The Seahawks are gonna do to the NFL what Godzilla does to the Tokyo skyline.

    I’ll worry about the 49ers after they prove they score more than 13 points against our defense. The last time was 4 games ago. And they scored 19.

  27. painsyndicate says: Sep 16, 2013 2:13 AM

    I hate little dicky Sherman as much as the next non-SeaChicken fan but the dude walks the walk.

    Gotta give it up to him.

    My favorite play of the game was when he got trucked by the tight end.

    The scoreboard said it all however.

  28. bigguy54 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:16 AM

    Come on Mike say something nice about the Hawks, you can do it, it won’t hurt. He wasn’t calling you out personally, because i doubt he reads the stuff you write about them. Hopefully you will pick them to win next week. Even though it won’t matter.

  29. aceinthehole12 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:18 AM

    Sherman is a great player, can never deny that, but his attitude is getting old. He’s done SOME stuff in this league but not enough to run his mouth and act the way he does. Can’t wait til December 8th. Candlestick will be absolutely crazy when we(they) kick the piss out of the Seahawks.

  30. jonkchar says: Sep 16, 2013 2:19 AM

    The man speaks #thetruth

  31. trytobnimble says: Sep 16, 2013 2:19 AM

    haha. Maybe it’s just me but I kind of like the mediots and chattering class being called on the carpet whenever possible.

  32. chaseutley says: Sep 16, 2013 2:22 AM

    Precious.

  33. claymatthewshairplugs says: Sep 16, 2013 2:23 AM

    I don’t know Sherman looks like the gon rant idiot in that interview…

  34. eaglesnd18 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:24 AM

    This guy is a character. I have no idea if I should like him or hate him because he is a great player, but says stupid things all the time. I’m glad the Seahawks won though. Always fun seeing Jim Crybough lose.

  35. claymatthewshairplugs says: Sep 16, 2013 2:24 AM

    *ignorant idiot*

    Hate auto correct

  36. joecool16280 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:32 AM

    I see Rex Ryan reincarnated himself as a cornerback. Blowhard.

  37. gonzomd says: Sep 16, 2013 2:32 AM

    “We’ll agree with Sherman that it’s foolish to doubt the Seahawks at home. On the road, it’s a different issue — as evidenced by last week’s 12-7 win over the Panthers.”

    Yes, because a win on the road is so much more reason to doubt a team than a win at home.

  38. ltpm3 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:35 AM

    Every time I hear the announcers say how smart Richard Sherman is I am just amazed because every time he opens his mouth he makes himself sound so STUPID! He gets in every ones’ face and screams at them … just how long to you think that’s going to go on before someone just smacks the crap out of him? I am hoping that’s the game I am watching!!!

  39. chitown26 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:37 AM

    He was talking to you, Florio.

  40. juliusanonymous says: Sep 16, 2013 2:37 AM

    Hey, I got an idea. Why don’t you keep making excuses while Seattle keeps winning? Yeah, that works.

  41. beastmode5150 says: Sep 16, 2013 2:39 AM

    Love me some Richard. He had more catches tonight than the guy he was wearing like a suit (boldin).

  42. swaggyy says: Sep 16, 2013 2:41 AM

    LOL I love you Richard.

  43. mackcarrington says: Sep 16, 2013 2:41 AM

    For someone who attended Stanford, he sure is stupid.

  44. rcotner says: Sep 16, 2013 2:43 AM

    Looks like Harbaugh got out coached in this one. No adjustments vs Seattles’ press man defense.

  45. jtylert says: Sep 16, 2013 2:44 AM

    How dare he have any fun.

  46. 44boz says: Sep 16, 2013 2:49 AM

    I would have loved to say the same thing to the Niner fans at the game, but they left at halftime.

  47. dylanssongwriter says: Sep 16, 2013 2:50 AM

    How did this guy get into Stanford?

  48. favresweiner says: Sep 16, 2013 2:56 AM

    Richard Sherman is a spitting image of the Grinch.

  49. beastmode5150 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:01 AM

    Hey florio, he will eat crow when someone actually lights him up. Also, the hawks allowed 7 points on the road in another teams home opener, that’s bad?

  50. stealthhawk says: Sep 16, 2013 3:02 AM

    What do you mean “As evidenced by last week’s 12-7 win over the Panthers”?

    Last time I checked, a win is a win in the NFL, ESPECIALLY on the road.

    The Panthers have perhaps the best front 7 in the NFL and a fearsome pass-rush.

    It was also the first game of the season and the ‘Hawks were dealing with quite a bit of injuries.

    The Seahawks move on to Jacksonville with a 2-0 record while PFT continues to lose credibility.

  51. rublestiltzkin says: Sep 16, 2013 3:03 AM

    Humility? Meh, Richard Sherman was dead on right. Couldn’t have put it any better myself.

  52. bach2112 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:06 AM

    Anyone else see a booger hanging?

  53. worldsloudestfans12 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:07 AM

    Wow Florio!! your hatred of Seattle grows and grows. Can’t you give them one break since they were the team who was stripped of a superbowl title to lift the your paper champion Steelers to their imaginary championship. Your true BIAS colors flow like the tears of those of Pittsburgh and San Francisco..

  54. thestrategyexpert says: Sep 16, 2013 3:11 AM

    Well now that he said “every”, he is fair game to be heckled after any loss. Somebody will have doubted him prior to the respective loss and for those times they won’t look that stupid at all.

  55. footballfan71 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:22 AM

    Who cares what he says. Look at his play. He shut down his receivers all night as well as an INT. So did the Hawks secondary. His mouth may irritate folks, but it is no different than all the other trash talkers. He just gets more press. Nevertheless, his play was simply outstanding.

  56. sportnorcal says: Sep 16, 2013 3:23 AM

    Stay classy Seattle.

  57. packownsu says: Sep 16, 2013 3:25 AM

    “We want the ball and we’re going to score”. Your day is also coming, Mr Sherman.

  58. arwiv says: Sep 16, 2013 3:30 AM

    I love Sherman’s arrogance. The guy is great, has a ton of faith in his team, and isn’t afraid to let people know it. Every team needs a few guys like him.

  59. hockeyfan28 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:40 AM

    Hey as long as they can keep getting around the league drug testing all the more power to them

  60. cashisking4life says: Sep 16, 2013 3:47 AM

    No reason for sherman or seahawks to eat humble pie. They just shut down a great team and if they the seahawks stay healthy the only team that poses a threat is the Broncos. The broncos can be scored on so seahawks shouldn’t be worried.

    Lets see the falcons are stacked but their def can be scored on to. So I don’t care what anybody says right now Seattle is the clear team to beat in the NFL. I think it goes:
    1. Seattle
    2. Denver
    3. SF
    4. Green Bay
    5. Atl

    Yea the seahawks were at home and did get some calls but sf got away with a lot calls as well. But hats off to Russell Wilson and the seahawks offense for playing well against that nasty 49ers defense. The niners and seahawks defs are just brutal mirror images of each other. They’re great to watch and it was great to see pete Carroll own the niners. Nice to see a coach that smiles and has a good time with his team unlike that crybaby harbaugh. Ha ha

  61. goldrush4949 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:52 AM

    As I always say, take that team out of Qwest and they’re very mediocre. Still seven road games left, Sherm.

  62. afcdomination says: Sep 16, 2013 4:10 AM

    not to nitpick but if davis doesn’t pull up lame, he likely doesn’t get that INT

    as for the win, yeah, pretty impressive performance from the seahawks. and that was with a struggling Russell Wilson early. they are a real force.

  63. cttrojan says: Sep 16, 2013 4:17 AM

    Florio, ignorant idiot you are not, but you did pick the niners.

  64. samapoc says: Sep 16, 2013 4:25 AM

    It’s probably better if people doubt you.

  65. lionsdraftguy says: Sep 16, 2013 4:26 AM

    Since I can’t stand watching my own team lose anymore, I now love watching the 49ers lose. What a bunch of losers they are. Go Seattle!!!

  66. hawkfan50 says: Sep 16, 2013 4:31 AM

    Sherm’s just telling it like it is … deal with it !

  67. sactown9er916 says: Sep 16, 2013 4:36 AM

    We got banged. They muscled us. We got work to do or its def their division at least… Controlled the line of scrimmage. Nice win for them over the NFC Champs… Only wish we resembled so

  68. allidoiswin55 says: Sep 16, 2013 4:41 AM

    The seahawks played without 3 key defensive starters who will be back in a few weeks. Like mentioned many times the seahawks have the best secondary in he league PEROID, they have 4 starting caliber cbs all of which are as good or better than anyone the niners can throw out their. The starting pro bowl left tackle went out due to injury and that made life rough for Wilson with aldon running crazy. But in the end he not enough nor was the Justin Smith is injured bullcrap change anything. He was healthy while conversely the seahawks were not very healthy.

    If not for all the damn penalties and long distance plays and called back plays Russell Wilson would have had over 200 yards passing of for just two questionable calls aren’t made.

    Either way statement sent to the nfl and bogus fans, the seahawks aren’t even clicking yet on offense, are missing 4 pro bowl caliber players and are just starting the process get healthy. By week 9 it will not be fair.

    The seahawks are a top 5 team and have proven this thus far, win on the road against a up and coming defense who will finish top ten and then a complete dismantling of the forty niners on national television.

    For this to be a rivalry the niners have to actually win or at least not get blown out so much. 71-15 in the last two meetings .. U mad Bro.. Kaep looked very average as did he last year. Without three defensive starters he mustered 3 pts and we all saw the seahawks drop two other easy interceptions. Guess he’s not the elite of the elite like Brady, Manning, Brees. Same old kaep, can’t read a defense to save his life and without a weak secondary he can’t key in on one guy. That’s why boldin who had 200+ had 1 for 8 yards.

    Seattle will rejoice in this win and you niners will eat crow for a while. You might even loose next week too. Night folks.

    Go Hawks.

  69. mitchem85 says: Sep 16, 2013 4:45 AM

    I don’t like Sherman, AT ALL..

    But, I must admit he’s good and backs up his talk. I just believe in winning in grace and humility.

    No need to rub their nose in it, because karma is a BITCH.

  70. phillyphinsfan says: Sep 16, 2013 5:24 AM

  73. honkerdawg says: Sep 16, 2013 5:40 AM

    He’s a product of the new generation of athlete, a lot of talent and a big mouth and with his supposed education from an such an honored school. I bet his family is “so proud” of him. A “classy” example for the youth of this country to look up to!

  74. onbucky96 says: Sep 16, 2013 5:44 AM

    Ignorant idiots? I thought this tool went to Stanford. Reminds me of Danica Patrick and “stupid idiot”.

    Always.

    He is such a punk.

  78. packfntk says: Sep 16, 2013 6:05 AM

    Good player, but for a smart guy he sure is an idiot. Does that make sense?

  79. divan22 says: Sep 16, 2013 6:08 AM

    Very good CB but complete trash as a person. An embarrassment to all Californians.

  80. blackqbwhiterb says: Sep 16, 2013 6:08 AM

    “You wanna shut me up? Beat me!” He’s really talkative, but from what I’ve seen, he backs it up. The whole defense does.

  81. gmsingh says: Sep 16, 2013 6:14 AM

    If the Seahawks lose their next game will Sherman refer to himself as an ignorant idiot?

  82. gpry says: Sep 16, 2013 6:30 AM

    Classy like his coach

  83. kane337 says: Sep 16, 2013 6:35 AM

    When the Seahawks lost to the Falcons Mr Sherman was nowhere to be found. He ran to the locker room, and promptly got on the bus without speaking to a single reporter.

  84. breakingb says: Sep 16, 2013 6:36 AM

    I love this guy! No, not you Florio.

  85. allidoiswin55 says: Sep 16, 2013 6:38 AM

    *71-16, Niners did have decisively more penalties and yards, I think both were just as crucial seeing game situations.

    As good as Sherman is, ye gotta feel he is the biggest clown in the whole NFL and absolutely the dumbest person to ever go to Stamford.

  88. the8man says: Sep 16, 2013 6:45 AM

    Big talent. Bigger mouth. He needs a haircut and shave.

    Actually Richard, no one ever lost money betting against the Seahawks being world champions.

  91. remyje says: Sep 16, 2013 7:11 AM

  92. Akula says: Sep 16, 2013 7:13 AM

    To put it plain and simple…….He’s just a very unlikable guy.

  93. heymangold says: Sep 16, 2013 7:14 AM

    This dude shouldn’t be allowed to speak. I lost all respect for him after that First Take incident with Skip Bayless.

  95. bestbitter says: Sep 16, 2013 7:20 AM

    This guy is part of the problem.

    It’s a game, get a life.

  96. metrocritical says: Sep 16, 2013 7:25 AM

    Clearly, Richard Sherman is physically talented, his prowess on the field is self evident. Additionally, he is intelligent and well educated, he will tell you that at every possible opportunity. But what’s most obvious is that Sherman has the maturity and class of a petulant, punky eighth grader mouthing off to a substitute teacher. How about adding some grace, poise and humility to your repertoire? Stop with the anger and smug rants. Enjoy your career without being a best. As Seargant Hulka might say, “Lighten up, Frances.”

  97. bcgreg says: Sep 16, 2013 7:29 AM

    Richard Sherman is an ass hat!

  98. footballfan58 says: Sep 16, 2013 7:38 AM

    Sherman, the ignorant idiot is you.

  99. f1restarter says: Sep 16, 2013 7:38 AM

    I’ll never doubt the effectiveness of PEDs again, Richard.

  100. Smarterthanyou says: Sep 16, 2013 7:40 AM

    Richard, I feel your pain.
    I too have to read/see from those same idiots on this site. 95% of which are the pathetic Whiner fans.
    I try to teach through knowledge, wisdom and patience, but you just can not teach Stupid.

    When will they learn Richard?
    Jimmy “Whine” Harbaugh didn’t want Alex Smith so he tried to get Manning thru the back door , thus insulting and lying to all about it.
    He didn’t want Tattoo Freak Man, so he hatched a plan to trade him after drafting our Russell Wilson.
    Their head coach has no class, dignity, or morals so how can we expect the fans to have any?
    Did you see how many cheap shot fouls were called against the Whiners? Did you see how many the Refs DIDN’T call and were missed?
    CLASSLESS play from a CLASSLESS organization that was was shown on national television that Seattle outclassed the FortyWHiners.
    From the head coach, to the QB, to the sportsmanship of play, to the fans the whole nation knows Seattle is greater in every aspect.

    Shut up Sherman. You’re good. You’re teams good. But you still haven’t won ish. You won a divisional game at home. Not the biggest deal

  104. whatjusthapped says: Sep 16, 2013 7:49 AM

    To be fair, I’m pretty sure he used “ignorant idiots” in referencing the 40-whiner fans so he sacrificed humility in favor of accuracy.

  105. johnnyhambone says: Sep 16, 2013 7:52 AM

    not a seahawks fan but totally agree with richard sherman. It’s been 3 years now since i have watched a pregame show-all of them are garbage,all scripted.just give me the official start time of the game and i will turn the tv on with the option of muting the play by play announcer and analyst.

  106. ccjcsr says: Sep 16, 2013 7:52 AM

    They won, let him talk!

  108. shlort says: Sep 16, 2013 7:57 AM

    Sherman is a piece of work. I’ll leave it at that.

    That being said, the niners looked ordinary last night. Kaepernick played scared and everyone else folowed his lead.

  109. donnymacjack says: Sep 16, 2013 8:05 AM

    Love him or hate him this guy had a great game. The entire Seahawk defense had a great game against a great team.

  110. themagicman1223 says: Sep 16, 2013 8:09 AM

    Sherman’s awesome.

  111. 49erstim says: Sep 16, 2013 8:10 AM

    Until somebody steps up and beats them at home then Sherman gets to be right. Point blank. That’s another embarrassing loss up there. I could write the first one off as an aberration and if I really wanted to I could come up with a couple of excuses for this one, but the fact of the matter is Seattle won and San Francisco lost. Championship teams don’t make excuses. They win when they have to win. If the gameplan isn’t better at home in a few weeks then that will also be a loss. I know SF is hurting for weapons offensively, but that gameplan was atrocious.

    Good win Seahawk fans. Enjoy it.

  112. albinorhino49 says: Sep 16, 2013 8:13 AM

  125. osiris33 says: Sep 16, 2013 9:19 AM

    dstep24, Sherman wasn’t covering White on that play. The Seahawks were in a cover2 zone, and the Falcons moved White inside away from Sherman because he was getting shut out on the outside. Kam Chancellor was supposed to pick him up, and he didn’t. The only reason Sherman was even in the area was because he tried to come over and help at the last minute. These are the kinds of mental errors that happen to west coast teams at 10AM on the east coast.

    As to the road game in SF, keep in mind the Seahawks will be even better then, having gotten Clemmons, Irvin and Harvin back.

    Maybe Harbaugh will have learned something from these last 2 games by then.

    BTW, Richard Sherman is the best defensive player in the NFL.

  126. jonirocit says: Sep 16, 2013 9:34 AM

    Cool bro , stay clean , be humble , and play hard . I’m sure good things will happen to good people. I’m sure Sherman is one of the best human beings on the planet and would never go Braun on us …Wait a sec …I hate the Niners but this guy did roids and got away with it …at least Braun had was a decent guy before it happened . Dude needs to inject some Humility .

  127. watermelon1 says: Sep 16, 2013 9:39 AM

    Life is easy for an nfl defensive back when you are allowed to grab, hold, and interfere with no repercussions such as a penalty being called.

    How do you know when you whine a lot?

    This team got up for 49ers and beat them. They can’t get up for every game.

    9-7

    I think that those that are bashing Kap so much should also be on Wilson too. He didn’t exactly have a spectacular game either. Seattle’s D won that game, believe that. Sherman has a right to boast about what happened last night but he’ll be quieted once again like he was last week because they can’t seem to get it together ON THE ROAD. Too bad for Seattle that every game is not played at home. But know this…there is still a game left to be played at Candlestick so we will see what happens. We won’t forget about this humiliating loss either. But for now the Seattle D does deserve their moment…as bad as i’m gritting my teeth right now….ugh…..

  131. jimthebuilder27 says: Sep 16, 2013 9:54 AM

    This is the same moron who bragged about shutting down Roddy White (he did not) after a LOSS.

  133. bizzyb559 says: Sep 16, 2013 10:04 AM

    I loved watching the hawks dominate the 9ers but Sherman could let his performance speak for itself and shut his pie hole. Arrogance is his detriment. Can’t wait til they meet again in SF.

  134. beastmode5150 says: Sep 16, 2013 10:20 AM

    Not your guys’ fault, but it’s just how he is, he talks, he also talks about everyday to suffering kids, schools, writes op eds in the paper, raises tons of money, etc. I would hate him if he was on another team, so I “get it” but damn that boy is a shutdown corner.

    KaperNoob was inept. He FAILED. He’s not as good as people think he is with all the publicity he had in the off season after LOSING IN THE SB!!!

    Kid needed this. Get off of the high horse, the band wagoners and jock sniffers need to get off the wagon and his jocks. Time to come up with some KaperNoob excuses now rofl!!!

    No one should feel bad for him one bit. KaperNoob took over a SB caliber team with great coaching staff, and he has Boldin now, and he still played like that? LOL what did Alex Smith had to deal with his whole career with the 49ers? Give me a break LOL!!!

    Given the fact that KaperNoob was given the opportunity to take over a SB caliber team but failed in the SB last year, he NEEDS to at least win 2 SBs to even make up his failures so far and from what everyone saw last night, it won’t happen this season, he has a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG ways to go LOL…!

  139. easyeddie says: Sep 16, 2013 10:42 AM

    KaperNoob 3 INTs, 1 Fumble, NO TDs, 20.1 QBR, 127 yd passing… LOL ROFL LMAO… Don’t think Alex Smith was ever that bad LOL NOT even in the Nolan days ROFL HAHAHA!!!

    And the defense played their butts off too.

    Florio picked the 49ers to win in Century Link. There are so many fans/analysts out there they think Seattle is “overrated” and yet never watched them play. Sherman is right about that and if you click the video he gives 49ers their credit. Boldin’s catch was in zone coverage over linebackers by the way. Pete Caroll/John Schneider have put together a roster that is young, talented and committed to winning. Yesterday’s game was a defensive shut out in every way. Their QB threw for 400 yards the game before, had 150 against us and 3 picks/1 sack fumble. 49er fans want to point to next game. We will have Okung back, Harvin, Brandon Browner, Chris Clemons & Bruce Irvin at linebacker. Good luck

  143. dstep24 says: Sep 16, 2013 11:13 AM

    The Five Stages of Denial, when losing to te Seahawks:

    1. Blame the PEDs – never mind the fact that Irvin, Moffitt (now a Bronco) and Browner weren’t even on the field last night, and Sherman’s suspension was overturned for mishandling of his sample. There were NO PEDsmen playing in the game.

    2. Say it’s only because they were at home – considering SEAs 9-2 stretch to finish las season – including road wins in Chicago and Washington, and being 34 seconds from winning IN ATL in the Divisional round last year – this argument is hilarious.

    3. Pan to Richard Sherman’s trash-talking to distract from the pummeling that Your team suffered at the hands of the Seahawks – See this article. Perfect example.

    4. Call Pete Carroll a cheater – Oh this is a fave of many. Toss around Reggie Bush’s name a few times, cite an imaginary recruiting violation or two, and then create the far-fetched illusion that this game had something to do with any of it.

    5. Discrediting Seattle and blaming poor execution of the other team – “It was nothing Seattle did, it was just that our team played poorly”, and “we didn’t execute” are just a couple of gems from this hilarious basket.

    We’ll agree with Sherman that it’s foolish to doubt the Seahawks at home. On the road, it’s a different issue — as evidenced by last week’s 12-7 win over the Panthers.

    Are you on drugs? They WON that panthers game, you retard.

  150. pdway says: Sep 16, 2013 11:53 AM

    Watch the whole interview, and Sherman goes to lengths to show respect Vernon, Anquan and the Niners as a whole.

    This piece is a classic hatchet job, reducing an interview to a few words in the hopes of drumming up dislike for a player who has the audacity to be a little colorful in his interviews. I guess you want every athlete to be as boring as possible.

    Annoying piece, feels very one-sided. Still doesn’t take the shine off an awesome defensive performance, and a huge win against our biggest rival. The division isn’t won in a single game, we all know that, lots of football left to be played, and all Hawks fans know the Niners aren’t going anywhere.

    As a 49er fan I couldn’t be more thrilled with the way the Seahawks and their fans are handling their little week 2 moment- acting like beligerent, arrogant buffoons. The GREAT thing about football is that that attitude will come around to bite you in the ass everything single time. You’d think they won the Superbowl. It’s week 2. All they did is hold serve at home. But that’s the beauty, they think they accomplished more than they actually did in reality. The 49ers are 1-1 with 2 of their toughest matchups already off the board.

    I’m a strong believer in karma, and I can’t think of a single player in the NFL who builds up more bad karma than Richard Sherman. One day real soon, he’ll pay the price for his boundless arrogance, and he’ll be taught some much needed humility. Life has a funny way of teaching us all lessons when we need it the most. I’ll enjoy watching Sherman’s downfall as he’s probably the biggest piece of trash in the NFL. Great player, but just a despicable human being, he’s got A LOT to learn.

Time will tell if these Seahawks are for real, real teams win on the road, week in and week out. As for Shermin… he remeinds me of a boy with a stick and a bee hive. Of course he’s going to swat the hive. He lives for this stuff!!!

  160. wdunlap3 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:19 PM

    Been a SEA fan since 2002 and have this observation to make; take it for whatever its worth.

    SF and SEA are both great teams and unfortunately, great teams breed fair-weather and bandwagon fans. Unsurprisingly, its the bandwagon fans from both SEA and SF who resort to idiotic statements while simultaneously deriding each other as being classless. In contrast, “Real” SF fans, while pissed about the outcome of the game, “man-up,” accept the loss, offer a grudging congrats, and still look forward to December. Similarly, “Real” SEA fans bask in the glory of victory, without saying SF or Kaepernick suck (or that this “isn’t a real rivalry”–which it clearly is) because SF is a phenomenal team, and should be recognized for such. If they weren’t so good, then this victory wouldn’t mean much. In sum, these are both great teams and very strong rivals. The fan-base for both are passionate and awesome, notwithstanding the fair-weather fans.

  161. wdunlap3 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:26 PM

    Also, don’t get me wrong. “Real fans” absolutely do and should talk trash (otherwise rivalry not nearly so much fun) about which player is better than that player or which player is vastly overrated. It just means, that when we do talk trash, we have some actual basis for what we are saying.

  162. swagger52 says: Sep 16, 2013 1:27 PM

    I don’t have a dog in this hunt, but…

    If Richard Sherman shuts up and just plays football, he makes Harbaugh look like an idiot for supposedly bad-mouthing him.

    If Richard Sherman opens his mouth and says something stupid, then he kind of proves Harbaugh’s point.

    If Richard Sherman is so smart, why is it taking him so long to figure this out?

  163. swaggyy says: Sep 16, 2013 1:35 PM

  164. bondsncruz says: Sep 16, 2013 1:38 PM

    Ironically the only “ignorant idiots” is Richard Sherman himself. Too bad he’s too stupid to see that. It’s a shame he took a more deserving person’s spot in any Stanford class.

  165. sweetoj says: Sep 16, 2013 1:58 PM

    Great player – completely classless person.

    Players who aren’t punks are so happy after a big win, they don’t need to trash their opponents and call anyone an “ignorant idiot”for predicting his team would lose to team that went to the Super Bowl last year. All you have to say is scoreboard, and really you don’t have to say that because we all saw the scoreboard. Sherman is very talented, so Seahawks fans will come running to his rescue, just like Niner fans defend Harbaugh’s insanity because he is a great coach. But neither is the type of person that is easy to like unless you are a fan of their team.

    The bottom line is the trash talk before/during the game has a place and is fair game. He may be smart, he may be talented. But talking crap afterwards is just kicking someone who is clearly already down, and he does it consistently. That’s why people hate Sherman.

    You don’t think for the whole off-season we didn’t listen to 49er fans talk trash about how they “own” NFC West. Now that your team gets trashed on National TV, a few of you who actually show your faces want to claim its getting “rubbed in” too hard or its only week 2.

    Sherman is actually a smart guy and completely shut down a WR who was named NFC offensive player of the week. Ignorant is not understanding that if Seattle secures the NFC with home-field its going to be scary for a team to come to Century Link to try get a win in the playoffs. Maybe 49ers can start focusing on the Colts

  167. rohinaz says: Sep 16, 2013 1:59 PM

    OK… So as a actual die hard 9er fan I will absolutely give it to Seattle. Clearly we can’t win there. 9ers had better figure out something too win the NFC West cause if we go to Seattle in the playoffs, a title run will be stopped there. Having said that giving credit too Seattle, I’ll never give credit to that jerk off, glorified cheer leading coward coach of yours. Also hawk fans its week 2. You didn’t just win the superbowl, you didn’t just clinch the NFC West. You won your second game of the season. Quit jerking each other off and relax. Yes Seattle beat the 9ers but honestly you guys got a ton of help with awful defensive penalties by Aldon smith and Ahmad brooks when it should’ve been 3rd and long or 4th down instead of 2 touchdowns having been handed to you. I’m not mad bro and I’m not “whining”. Telling it like it is.

  174. deweyaxewound says: Sep 16, 2013 3:18 PM

    Sherman is talented, no doubt – as is the Seahawks entire secondary.

    But crowning their corners “best in the NFL” at this point is a little premature, and short-sighted, I believe.

    Heck, I wouldn’t even call Sherman the best all-around CB in the NFC at this point – I’d give that honor to Charles Tillman.

    Tillman not only plays great shut-down defense against opposing teams’ WRs, but he’s solid in run support and a monster at takeaways, too.

    Oh, and he’s been doing for 10 years, too (not two).

    Personally, I’ll take Peanut’s well-rounded talents, quiet humility and leadership (and longevity) over the brash upstarts, any day.

    (And as tandem – Chicago’s Tim Jennings on the other side is no slouch, either).

    But again, that’s not to take anything away from the Seattle secondary/DBs – just to offer a little perspective.

  175. joemontanafan says: Sep 16, 2013 3:26 PM

    Oh and for those of you who are saying Kaep is not as good as everyone is saying, or a loser or whatever you want to say. I’m sorry but what hell the Wilson do last night? Or against the Panthers? I love how people say how kaep LOST IN THE SUPERBOWL lol at least he went!! He was good enough to lead his team with a half of a season as a starter under his belt. If anyone is having a “fluke” season its Russell Wilson. What does he have 1 TD in 2 games?

    @49ersTim, thank you for your congratulations. The 49ers are great competitors, and we look forward to seeing another terrific game in December.

    Even more than the Seahawks, the NFC West are the true winners. Here’s to the East Coast Sports Reporting Cabal having to eat their words one more time.

  178. shootermcgavin206 says: Sep 16, 2013 3:58 PM

    Last I checked, some of the greatest athletes of all time talked a ton of trash. Muhammad Ali, considered the greatest boxer ever, was always talking, but backed it up. Michael Jordan, considered the greatest basketball player ever, was always talking, but backed it up.

    I have no problem with trash talking, as long as you back it up! Trash talk is GOOD FOR SPORTS. Any great athlete will tell you that’s how they grew up (trash talking). It should be clean and nothing personal, but athletes always talk trash about who’s better. I’m sick of this new generation where everyone is trying to be friends. A lot of people are attacking Sherman’s character for what? He’s backing it up on the field. If he was on your team, you’d LOVE him because he does his job, and does it good. Sherman has been locking up WR’s ever since he entered the league, and he lets you know about it. Nothing more demoralizing to an opponent when you lock them up AND let them hear about it. Did you see Anquan Boldin’s face (he was so mad). Sherman did his job and shut him down.

    Let’s look at the facts: Anquan Boldin caught 13 passes for 208 yards in week 1. After that, 49ers fans go nuts saying he’s gonna have a monster game vs Seahawks.

    Week 2: 1 catch for 7 yards vs Sherman (Sherman wasn’t even guarding him when the catch was made). That means Richard Sherman had more catches than Anquan Boldin.

    Week 1: Colin Kaepernick throws for 412 yards and 3 TD’s with a 129.4 Passer Rating vs Packers.

    Week 2: Colin Kaepernick throws for 127 yards, 0 TDs and 3 INT’s with a 20.1 Passer Rating vs Seahawks.

    In conclusion: The only thing I got from this game was:

    1) Like him or not, Richard Sherman completely LOCKED DOWN his side of the field. I would have a problem with if he didn’t do his job, but he’s the best in the NFL.

    2) Colin Kaepernick struggles vs Legit defenses

    3) Everyone crowned SF super bowl champs way too early. Last week these so called “experts” were saying how improved Kaepernick was and all that.

    4) The Seahawks defense is the best in the NFL, and it’s not even close.

    5) That is the loudest building in the NFL. 136.6 decibals speaks for itself. Only fans who disagree and hate on that can only wish to generate that sort of noise.

    6) The Guiness book of records wouldn’t certify that amount of noise if there was sound being pumped into the stadium. If you’ve ever been to a Seahawks game, you know EVERY SINGLE fan is screaming at the top of their lungs.

    7) Give credit where credit is due. If the 49ers won, you all would be saying how great they are.

  179. joemontanafan says: Sep 16, 2013 4:06 PM

    to be completely honest as a Niner fan I would rather have sherman talk trash after the game after he performed the way he did then having guys like Clay Matthews or even our own anthony Dixon talking trash before the game.

  180. clove8deuce says: Sep 16, 2013 4:12 PM

    Can someone advise where he actually talked trash about the Niners in that interview……Sherman didn’t even take the bait when his ‘relationship’ with Harbaugh was brought up. The same people that don’t like Sherman probably don’t like Johnny Football or anyone else who dares show some sort of personality.

  181. anygivensundayfan says: Sep 16, 2013 4:16 PM

    Man, do I find it refreshing to hear from a starting player who does not follow generic PR scripts but speaks his mind!

    Shooter Says, “Last I checked, some of the greatest athletes of all time talked a ton of trash. Muhammad Ali, considered the greatest boxer ever, was always talking, but backed it up. Michael Jordan, considered the greatest basketball player ever, was always talking, but backed it up.”

    Shooter- those guys won Championships. They were also among the greatest, if not the greatest, in the history of their sport. To compare Muhammad Ali and Michael Jordan to a clown like Richard Sherman is beyond laughable. Sherman has nothing in common with those 2, and probably never will. Ali and Jordan are champions and therefore earned their right to talk smack. Sherman does it because he’s not very bright for a guy that went to Stanford.

  190. shootermcgavin206 says: Sep 16, 2013 5:22 PM

    @bondsncruz The point is, he talks trash and backs it up on the football field. If you disagree with that, then you’re very delusional, my friend. He locked down his entire side of the field all game. He was 1st team All-Pro last year and will be again this year. I’d have a problem with him if he played like trash, but Anquan Boldin didn’t catch a single pass against him.

    @bondsncruz Seahawks fans aren’t crowning SB champs, simply engaging in a great rivalry with 49ers fans. I don’t see one post saying “were SB champs”. On the other hand, fans should have confidence enough to say that for any team. Why would you not have faith in your team to go to the SB?

    Anthony Dixon (SF 3rd or 4th string running back) was running his mouth earlier this week calling the Seahawks the “She-Hawks”. I have a problem with this because:

    1) He’s not even the starter, I’d have been ok if Frank Gore said this well, because he actually gets playing time.

    2) He didn’t even have enough balls to offer some sportsmanship after the game.

    3) After you talk trash and get whooped, where was his twitter talk afterwards?

    4) Richard Sherman didn’t say anything all week until AFTER the game was played and he completely locked down Boldin.

    But crowning their corners “best in the NFL” at this point is a little premature, and short-sighted, I believe.

    Heck, I wouldn’t even call Sherman the best all-around CB in the NFC at this point – I’d give that honor to Charles Tillman.

    ———————————

    I think Tillman is good but because of his forced fumbles people like to give his coverage ability too much credit. How did AJ Green do against him when they were matched up? I think I watched 2 big time TD’s on Peanut and 100 plus yards. When Seattle played Bears last year. Rice and Tate each had one TD on him in man coverage.

    How are the Bears safeties?? Because Seattle has an 1st team All Pro FS and Pro Bowl level SS. On top of that they were the number 1 scoring defense last year and think they well on their way to that same title this year.

  193. aces79 says: Sep 16, 2013 6:27 PM

    Its only week 2 relax people

  194. deweyaxewound says: Sep 16, 2013 6:35 PM

    You cherry pick ONE game (last week?) out of a DECADE long career? (you realize those long passes had more to do with the lack of a pass rush up front, as anyone who understands how football works can tell you).
    And Tillman had two picks in the game – more than making up for it.

    While your new darling CB has been hot against crappy-to-mediocre QBs/WRs, you know how many games Tillman has had to (and has) shut down Calvin Johnson, and the Packers receivers?

    Sheeeit, in fact, Tillman started his career as a rookie covering Randy Moss in his prime (he ripped a game-winner out of Moss’s hand his rookie year to deny the Vikes their playoff berth that year). Sherman was probably still in diapers at the time.

    Like I said in my earlier post: Tillman’s been at the game and playing at this level for a DECADE. And he does it quietly, with dignity, and leadership, and excellence (and thank in large part to east coast media bias, something I’m sure you’re aware of – it goes largely unheralded).

    And it’s not JUST about the coverage. Or the forced fumbles (although they count). Or the opposing WR’s stat line. It’s also about reading the defense, making picks, providing run support, and making plays when it counts, coming through in the clutch. AND coverage. It’s also about providing character to the team when it needs it (handling adversity, etc.)

    In light of all that, I’d take Tillman and Jennings over the Seahawks CB’s any day of the week.

    (the Bears safeties, on the other hand, are solid enough, but still young and developing)

    “On top of that they were the number 1 scoring defense last year and think they well on their way to that same title this year.” – you mean the Bears, right? (tied all-time league record for defensive TDs last season)

    Top-ranked defense in 2012 regular season based on Aikman efficiency ratings (which is much better than conventional yardage/points system traditionally used – which ranked Seahawks #4 and Bears #5 last year).

    Comparable defenses. Hope they get to square off this year. :-)

  195. screechdaddy says: Sep 16, 2013 6:36 PM

    If I had to choose between a “good” cornerback with poise and grace, and a tactless, smack-talking Richard Sherman who ALWAYS backs up his smack, I choose the latter.

    He can learn to be more tactful in his interviews, but most CB’s will never achieve his level of talent at the position.

    Try not to take his remarks personally, Florio, although you did pick the Whiners to beat us in our own house, and that choice did wind up making you look just a tad stupid. GO HAWKS!!

Maybe you guys can stay focused enough this year for a meeting in the post season, too? Probably not, though, as judging from the amount of celebration amongst you this was your superbowl.

  203. patsfan038 says: Sep 18, 2013 11:48 AM

    I’m a Bostonian born and bred. So I’m a huge Pats fan and have no interest in 49er/Hawks rivalry except that its good TV. I went to Stanford so I feel I’ve to support a fellow Cardinal in Richard Sherman. He is immensely talented. Having said that, he’s a tool and sometimes makes no sense. Examples below:
    1. His famous ‘U mad bro’ with Brady. He said Brady disrespected his team. Upon further review, Earl Thomas trash talked Brady with something like ‘I should have had two picks, you’re lucky I didn’t pick you’ . Brady rightfully talked back and Sherman say he disrespected them! This guy has no sense.
    2. His rant with Skip Bayless. I hate Bayless but he made a good point. Sherman always says ‘ My record speaks for itself. I’ve 8 int, 4 FF etc etc’ . This is not the record speaking for itself! He is blowing his own horn! I’ve heard him say that several times. Someone should tell him what ‘my record speaks for itself’ means.
    3. He always throws his team mates under the bus. The TD Roddy White had against him, he promptly said, ‘That wasn’t on me’. Same thing last week, He said ‘Boldin’s one completion wasn’t on me’. Way to be a team mate!!
    4. He said Harbaugh didn’t acknowledge him and he lacks sportsmanship. Video clearly shows that he slapped Harbaugh’s butt and ran away and didn’t even give him the opportunity to respond.

    Things like these bother me the most. He is clearly a smart guy (graduating from Stanford and all) but he should watch what he says as he has no credibility what so ever!!

  204. sweetoj says: Sep 18, 2013 12:14 PM

    It’s great that Sherman does charity work. A lot of players don’t. They have the time, money, and fame to make to give back to their communities, and Sherman does.

    However, someone who works in this field should know he is a role model to millions of kids. Is this what we want our kids doing – further disgracing a foe that is clearly already beaten? Michael Jackson did a ton of charity work too – does that forgive the “other things” he was known for? Doing good work off the field doesn’t mean doing things like rubbing losses in opponents faces, viciously insulting the character of interviewers, and calling the fans and media that make you a millionaire ignorant idiots simply because they thought might lose.

    It seems to be Sherman and only Sherman that doesn’t understand that when the game is over, the talk stops. Again, talk as much as you want before and during the game. But once it’s over there is truly no reason to talk anymore unless you revel in others misery. Not a good quality to have.

    Would Sherman fans be fans of Michael Phelps swimming into other lanes and screaming in the face of the silver and bronze medalists? Would one of you buddies not punch you in the face if you taunted him repeatedly after a game of pick-up basketball? Hard not to hate a guy behaves that, even if he has some other strengths.

    Dude is a beast, and some of his antics are witty and funny. However he has some growing up to do. He is too arrogant and self centeredand he needs to realize you don’t win every year, then what will he do? I didn’t see him thumping his chest when the big rookie right end ran him over. At some point he will write checks with his mouth that his but and team can’t cash. Winning with Grace and humility is always best…because it is also more forgiving when you don’t win.

  218. dukeearl says: Sep 20, 2013 10:35 AM

    I saw a couple posts saying that Sherman shouldn’t talk after the game, implying that the talk should be before the game.
    Brings to mind the phrase, “make your brag your boast”
    Sherman talking after the game is about accomplishments rather than idle claims about what he”might” accomplish.
    I never really much cared for the attitude myself, but what he does with his talking is getting into the heads of future opponents (and their fans).
    In spite of his bicep kissing attitude, CK walked off the field without shaking hands.
    Harbaugh barely acknowledged Carroll during the handshake.
    My thoughts on CK is that he has constantly been bragging and not boasting.

    The Seahawks and their fans so an amazing job of discounting the immense home field advantage they have when it suits them. Every time they ride a 1 second head start on every defensive snap to a double digit victory over a quality team, they spend a week crowing about how they really are double digits better than said team. And, as every knowledgeable football fan expects, they’ll drop half of their road games, SF, which is the better team, will win the division, Seattle will exit when they have to go on the road in the playoffs, and their mouths will finally shut for another offseason.

    Is that the same guy that said Roddy White was average then gave up a 50 yard TD to him in the playoffs? Credibility lost…

    You unlearned football fanatics and Sherman haters kill me hanging on the one play that he gave up a catch — on the play where he was playing man off expecting safety help (as Chancellor cheated up into the box, which is the only reason Ryan felt okay to throw the pass), and he wasn’t even playing White tight. Only once the pass was thrown did Sherman break back to retreat, and naturally White was able to make the play because Chancellor was too far out of position to remain high over the play.

    But whatever you fools need to do in order to assuage your massive insecurities, then so be it.
