Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has never hurt for confidence, and he sounded particularly confident after Thursday’s win over the Cardinals.
Sherman told reporters in the Seahawks’ locker room that he thinks not only does Seattle have the NFL’s best secondary collectively, but the Seahawks have the best individual player at each of the four secondary positions. Sherman considers himself the best left cornerback in the game, Brandon Browner the best right cornerback, Earl Thomas the best free safety and Kam Chancellor the best strong safety.
“I think we’re the best in the game,” Sherman said. “We’ve got the best free safety in the game, probably the best left corner, best right corner — we don’t switch sides, so we can’t be like other guys who switch sides and do all that. But we can be the best right corner, best left corner, best strong safety in the game.”
Sherman may be slightly overstating the greatness of his teammates, but he has every right to boast after Thursday night’s performance. The Seahawks’ secondary is playing well enough to live up to Sherman’s big talk.
