In the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Saints, Sherman knocked Saints wideout Kenny Stills off his feet at the back of the end zone at a time when Stills had no reason to expect contact.
While Stills didn’t see the hit coming (The Big Lead has the GIF), the officials saw it happening. Sherman was flagged for unnecessary roughness.
Sherman also likely will be fined. And he’ll likely find a way to whine and complain about it, painting himself as the victim even though he’s clearly in the wrong.
