Sherman expected blowout win, blames loss on bad calls

Sherman AP

Some would say Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a bad winner.  On Sunday, he came off as a bad loser.

After the Seahawks absorbed a 19-17 loss to the 49ers, Sherman blamed the loss on the officiating.

“We didn’t project it to be this way,” Sherman said, via quotes distributed by the 49ers.  “We expected to blow them out but they got the benefit of a few calls tonight throughout the game and that helps you especially on third down, we will see them again and it will be a different result.”

He reiterated that he expected a blowout for the Seahawks, and that the home team “got a few questionable calls on third down.”

Sherman also disputed the notion that the return of receiver Michael Crabtree, who missed the Week Two game between the teams due to a torn Achilles tendon, made a difference for the 49ers.

“It didn’t make a difference,” Sherman said.  “It didn’t make a difference at all. . . .  The penalties, that is what made the difference today.”

Regardless, the 49ers won.  If there’s a rubber match in the postseason, the Seahawks most likely will host the game.  And that’s what will make the difference in January.

    Ask Anquan if Crabtree’s presence made a difference.

  2. swaggyy says: Dec 9, 2013 12:49 AM

    There won’t be a rubber match. 49ers will lose while Seattle on their BYE week. Yeah they will have a BYE because they’re superior! Anyways, Sherman is so right. Those calls were flat out BS. I guess Jim Whinebaugh and all his whining about being too physical paid off. Pathetic.

  3. sonoco says: Dec 9, 2013 12:51 AM

    Yeah, color me not shocked

  4. lumjack32 says: Dec 9, 2013 12:51 AM

    This guy would get so much more respect around the league if he didn’t talk. And how did he get into Stanford?

  5. dirtysouthniner says: Dec 9, 2013 12:52 AM

    I think he meant he needed the calls he gets at home or hes not nearly as good. lmao at him whining at no calls.

  6. socatra says: Dec 9, 2013 12:53 AM

    Sherman was mugging Boldin and he thought the refs won’t call him on it. You are not in Seattle buddy.

    He also said before the game that it is a glorified practice.

  7. peterjohnjoseph says: Dec 9, 2013 12:56 AM

    He also was caught on mic saying “this is a certified practice” in the huddle before the game.

    I mean, I’m a pretty unbiased opinion here, since I don’t have ties to either team, so I’m not looking at this with tainted eyes. My whole gripe is, I get Sherman’s whole act. Sometimes I think its hilarious. Sometimes I think its hilarious to laugh at him. The fact of the matter is, when he says things like this does he not realize he looks like an idiot? And then to say its only not a blowout because of calls? So instead of learning his lesson, now he has the possible chance of having to eat his words again in San Fran wins a second time. What then? He acts like he never said it? He makes more excuses? When does it just stop man.. Be loud, be arrogant.. but don’t make a moron.

  8. balfe13 says: Dec 9, 2013 12:56 AM

    Sherman has to be the most annoying player in the entire NFL. I wouldn’t mind the Seahawks if he wasn’t on the team.
    His appearance on ESPN’s First Take was absolutely shameful, and he holds more on defense than anyone I’ve seen since it became illegal; they could legitimately call a penalty on him about 80% of the time. But of course he’s the best corner in the league. Sure…

  9. eastcoastniner says: Dec 9, 2013 12:57 AM

    Can this guy be any more of a jerk. He and his secondary are the poster boys for illegal contact and the league is FINNNNNALLY catching up to them. He should have been flagged twice as many times. He should count his blessings that refs wont throw flags on every one of his plays because they should. There is a difference between tight coverage and mugging receivers. I guess there is something in the water up there to make them delusional.

  10. ninerrob52 says: Dec 9, 2013 12:57 AM

    Seahawks’ DBs were holding up and down the field. The refs made a statement, they weren’t going to allow it and then the Seahawks had no way to respond.

    Blaming it on the refs is a petty move in a string of petty moves by Sherman. So its not a surprise

  11. ziggystheansah says: Dec 9, 2013 12:58 AM

    Just stop Sherman. I like Sherman as a player, but I’m not a fan of either team but give credit where it’s due. Obviously Crabtree was a factor if Boldin had his most productive game this season excluding his week 1 outburst…

    Just say good game& we need to practice harder. But don’t come off as a baby.

  12. mubbcsoc says: Dec 9, 2013 12:58 AM

    Just pathetic… What do you expect from a loudmouth who clearly lost the physical match today with boldin.

  13. asimonetti88 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:00 AM

    This is why I can’t stand Sherman. Great player, but dude, you lost, give credit where it’s due. You expected a blowout, and you got beaten instead. Keep your mouth shut! You’re still leading my 49ers by 2 games. Sherman could use a lesson from great players like Barry Sanders or Jerry Rice, who won AND lost gracefully.

  14. hess97 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:00 AM

    a) while, yes, the refs started to finally call PI on the seattle secondary. something that has never ever happened….the seahawks got their share of off lame taunting calls and personal fouls based on flops.

    b) navarro bowman is hands down the best linebacker in football.

    c) we’ll see you juicers in the playoffs, seattle.

  15. nman3137 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:01 AM

    It’s hilarious how many holds/PIs they got away with on essentially every play… and he, of all people, is complaining about the refereeing? What a joke.

  16. hess97 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:02 AM

    actually, my bad. they never called PI on Seattle. only 5 yard holding calls. Though, the contact was after the throw. So the refs gave you a break, especially on the crabtree sideline interference.

  17. jayniner says: Dec 9, 2013 1:05 AM

    The 49ers/Seahawks should play one game in a neutral stadium with no home-field advantage(say, San Diego) and settle this once and for all.

  18. dirk504 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:15 AM

    That’s funny coming from a guy who uses the “hold the WR jersey” as one of his key defensive maneuvers. I wonder what call was missed when he was running behind Gore or crying for a flag after Boldin gave it to him?

  19. taintedsaints2009 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:15 AM

    Sure Seattle can win at home against anybody, but can they win at the Super Bowl against manning? They are too inconsistent on the road to make a prediction. I’d give the edge to manning for now.

  20. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Dec 9, 2013 1:17 AM

    Sherman has a very predictable behavior pattern of claiming he’s a victim … every time something goes wrong. You see it on the field. You see it with his badgering the officials. You hear about it after games in pressers.

    But when he and/or his team “gets over” on something, he rubs it in other people’s faces. And this uber-defiant m.o. of Sherman’s isn’t limited to just on-field calls. It also includes smack exchanges in-game and out. It even includes Sherman getting stone cold busted for steroids – and then, getting off on a technicality that had nothing to do with what was in his piss.

    Sherman’s defiance is virtually boundless. So, his latest outburst falls right in line with his ever-growing resume.

  21. seatownballers says: Dec 9, 2013 1:18 AM

    Niners won a good game. Penalties killed Seattle. They played so physical, they got called for almost everything. they had it coming.Lets think about the Next game and how to chill with all the penalties

  22. gr87ad says: Dec 9, 2013 1:18 AM

    Really? You complain and blame a loss on the refs? You sound just like a whining fan. You mad bro? Every play you can see Sherman holding jerseys then when the refs throw a flag for def holding you don’t see his mouth yapping anymore. Worst open field tackler on that Defense. Complete corner? I think not. Best cover corner? Hands down. Shut your mouth the game is over.

  23. 64post says: Dec 9, 2013 1:20 AM

    Sour grapes much?

  24. benihanagt says: Dec 9, 2013 1:22 AM

    Refs were a joke in this game on both sides. My favorite was when Crabtree fumbled the ball and the Hawks recovered. The official closest to the play said no fumble, he was down, Aikman and Buck clearly pointed out the ref who pointed down at the field and patted his own butt to say he was down when his butt hit the turf…..then when Pete challenged the ruling was suddenly changed to runner’s progress was stopped so not challeng-able…okay.

    Mike Pereira @MikePereira
    Regarding your tweets, in the SF game, it shouldn’t have been forward progress & Crabtree wasn’t down

    I’m sure a fumble recovery in SF territory wouldn’t have changed the outcome of this game…..oh wait….

    Hawks got away w/ many PI non-calls. Facemask calls on both teams were BS. Were huge impacts on multiple drives.

    Worst officiated game of the year.

  25. sugarray1 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:22 AM

    You’re right about the Seachokers needing their home field advantage. They are an average good team when on the road. They are vulnerable and I love that Herman thinks they should have won by a blowout. Don’t believe all the hype herman. You’re not all that. The Seachokers will be gone long before they get another shot at the the reigning NFC Champions.

  26. 49erdynasty says: Dec 9, 2013 1:23 AM

    What a sore loser.

  27. rn1997 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:23 AM

    In a bit of irony………..who’s making excuses now??? Since Seahawk fans are always so quick to chirp about the Forty-Whiners (which is GENIUS by the way………hahahaha). Just goes to show you……..ANY big tough beefy man can whine & complain like a 5 year old……..no matter if they’re on YOUR team or not!!!

  28. favresweiner says: Dec 9, 2013 1:26 AM

    Bad calls? What about the numerous plays the Anquan Boldin made on you?

  29. scumpidude says: Dec 9, 2013 1:32 AM

    What?? I can’t just hold onto their jersey the whole time? But then how am I supposed to stop them from catching the ball???

  30. alarmclok says: Dec 9, 2013 1:36 AM

    Maybe he should blame it on their “pharmacist”. He must have switched to generic without telling them.

  34. jmcghee0216 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:38 AM

    Why does Sherman have to act like such a punk? Can’t place blame on the officials when it’s a fact that the Hawks are the 2nd most penalized team in the league. Take a loss like a freakin man

  35. formuk says: Dec 9, 2013 1:41 AM

    So what we learned this week is that Seattle is not as good as they looked last week and New Orleans is not as bad as they looked last week.

    One thing remains constant: Sherman will keep chirping.

  36. orivar says: Dec 9, 2013 1:53 AM

    “Sherman said, via quotes distributed by the 49ers.”

    So should this even be taken as a credible?

  37. doe22us says: Dec 9, 2013 1:54 AM

    The mouth that roars, reason no 1m that I can’t stand the Seahawks is this sore looser.. And the lame Go HAWKS used at the end if every Seahawks post. I do recall last week the Super Bowl was handed to the Hawks, and I said slow your horses there is a lot of ball to be played. Besides when was the last time a top seed took it all, the Hawks are not invincible, tough yes but not unbeatable.

  43. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 9, 2013 2:17 AM

    Naturally, you’re all over this. And while the officiating was bad for both teams, the ones enforced on Seattle were often ticky tack and negated big plays, regardless of all the whining and complaining that Troy Aikman was doing in favor of San Francisco — which was really the thing that should have been your focus.

  44. sheena1986 says: Dec 9, 2013 2:19 AM

    Alright. Second week in a row of the Sherman-bashing fest? Who really cares what he said before the game? Did you not report what some of the 49er players were reported as saying pre-game? Your detest for Richard Sherman is obvious and your reporting has now become discredited . You would do great in politics Mike Florio. As I’m sure this post will be promptly be removed in the true communistic fashion that is your journalistic approach.

  47. bearwithjetpack says: Dec 9, 2013 2:19 AM

    If the refs would consistently call the Seattle secondary’s mugging of WRs, then Richard Sherman wouldn’t be able to say they got the benefit of a few calls.

    Refs wont throw a flag on illegal contact every play because that would be ridiculous, but you have to call the penalty when it happens. Not doing it every time you see it leads to people claiming that the reffing is inconsistent.

    Which is it.

  48. klutchpunjabiz says: Dec 9, 2013 2:22 AM

    LOL a Roidhawk complaining about losing a game because of calls? blown call of the decade belongs to these overhyped seachickens (golden tate “touchdown” against the packers). great player, horrible character. tried to hype his team up by telling them this was a glorified practice, what does that even mean lol. stay classy Seattle.

  49. terrellblowens says: Dec 9, 2013 2:32 AM

    I am a huge Sherman fan (not a Seahawks fan at all) because he can actually back up his trash talk and he has worked his butt off to be an elite NFL corner without having the “pedigree.” But he is sinking pretty low to blame the refs in an evenly matched game. Can’t stand when players or coaches whine about the refs unless there is a game deciding egregiously bad call like the Tuck Rule, the Seahawks Hail Mary, etc. A loss is a loss, take it like a man and prepare for the next game.

    On another note, NFL refs keep getting worse, so something needs to be done.

  50. rustygrizzwald says: Dec 9, 2013 2:33 AM

    More roid rage out of Sherman. You can’t pump in crowd noise on the road Seahawks.

  51. donttrip22 says: Dec 9, 2013 2:36 AM

    not a fan of either team but wow 9ers coach was in the refs ear the whole game they should of thrown a flag on his crying butt and told to back off 9ers fans should be ashamed of such pathetic whining display from there coach Crybaugh

  52. citynative says: Dec 9, 2013 2:43 AM

    Seattle thought process: Niners fans are over-celebrating a regular season win

    Reality: 42-13 was posted frequently last year

    Seattle Thought Process: 49ers fan base acting like they won the Super Bowl.

    Reality: Do you think the fan base with 5 super bowls is really acting like they won the super bowl after a regular season win?

    Seattle Thought Process: They are 40 Whiners

    Reality: The Seahawks fans believe they have never lost a game. Its always the refs and injuries.

    Seattle Thought Process: They could not run before KJ Wright went out.

    Reality: Funny, the Seahawks could not run before a chop block took out our nose tackle for the season in Seattle in the first game.

    Seattle Thought Process: We were playing injured.

    Reality: Again funny. The Niners were w/o Iupati on the line and were missing 3 starters on defense including their top 2 cb’s.

  53. NJ49er says: Dec 9, 2013 2:48 AM

    Good Sport that ‘Ol Sherm huh?
    Sucks when you can’t rub it in.

    9er Offense wasn’t exceptional by any means today but, grabbing jersey, face masks etc isn’t hard to miss when the Officials keep their eyes open for a change.

    Good game nonetheless.
    Hope to see you for the rubber match in January.

  54. Savage Lizard says: Dec 9, 2013 2:51 AM

    What? You mad bro?

  55. alldonesmith says: Dec 9, 2013 2:54 AM

    Sherman is out of his mind. What the Seahawks and their fans didn’t expect, and aren’t used to, is that the officials actually started calling penalties on some of the blatant mug-jobs they’ve been getting away with for over 2 years now. That doesn’t mean the officiating was fair. It wasn’t – Seattle still got the better end by far.

    First, Seattle should have gotten called for PI and defensive holding twice as often (or more) as they actually did. Exhibit A, the play downfield on the left sideline where Maxwell full-on shoved Crabtree in the neck and facemask, without turning his head to locate the ball, well before the ball was even in the frame. I could easily list 5 or 6 more of these.

    Second, cry me a river about the calls that supposedly went the 49ers’ way. A stationary and motionless Bowman got called for taunting, rather than Lynch who walked up into Bowman’s personal space and initiated facemask-to-facemask contact. On the Crabtree “fumble,” if you watched the replay you would see that both his rear end was on the ground and his forward progress was stopped well before the ball came out. Seattle would have lost that challenge had they been allowed to make one. I could list 3 or 4 more of these.

    The Seahawks and their fans should accept that they got beaten by the better team today. Don’t worry though guys, the rest of the NFL already knows you won’t. You’re easily the most-disliked team and fanbase in the league, and you’ve earned it.

  56. mi6agent says: Dec 9, 2013 3:04 AM

    Hahaha Sherman couldn’t shut anybody down. Seahawks DBs finally got flagged what they had been known for (grab / hold / push the receivers illegally). The dude should get treatment for his chronic diarrhea mouth.

  57. sneakyqb says: Dec 9, 2013 3:08 AM

    Huh, at least now I know why there are so many hawks fans who whine about officiating instead of mistakes made by their team for losses.

  58. uncletuna says: Dec 9, 2013 3:11 AM

    Richard Sherman…Congrats…you are the face of the most classless franchise currently in the NFL…hope you don’t choke in the playoffs…actually we do so that we can enjoy the post-game loss commentary…

  59. rmsthunder says: Dec 9, 2013 3:15 AM

    Typically the Seahawk fans are on hear calling 49ers the Whiners. But when they loose a game apparently their whining is legitimate points. Great game. Calls weren’t questionable. DBs of hawks play physical and hold a lot. Today it was rightfully called. If you don’t like it Sherman, then don’t get beat.

  60. jerrysglassescleaner says: Dec 9, 2013 3:16 AM

  68. tdubdizzle says: Dec 9, 2013 4:20 AM

    I fell asleep right after the third quarter but I saw Sherman get beat a couple times by Anquan Boldin AND he was called for holding on Boldin. You can’t make excuses about penalties when you’re personally getting beat and making penalties.Cmon man!

  69. couldntthinkofaname says: Dec 9, 2013 4:34 AM

    Sherman’s bright and articulate when just giving a normal type of interview. He’d be a great analyst after his playing days are done. But stuff like this, and all the trash-talking, just ruins it. He’s a fantastic player, but this act has gotten really old.

  70. tdubdizzle says: Dec 9, 2013 4:39 AM

    Richard Sherman is trying to speak his elite talent into existence.

  72. Johnny Chingas says: Dec 9, 2013 5:01 AM

    Boldin made him look like a chump on more than a few plays and I think his reputation as a dirty player on got more credibility since he was holding all day.

    LMAO …..No ‘Seahawk’ should ever ever for at least next 6 yrs, complain bout a bad call after last seasons NFL gift of a win when they obviously lost vs GB. That game shook the Nfc playoff pic last season and no Seahawk has ever admitted they really lost that game. Even Carroll, the coach, was not man enough to admit after last yrs gift. So Seattle : just keep mouth shut! Ur only a good home team. Pay attention to who they have beat on road. Cmon, even my Rams who I thought would lose big, just lost 13-9 to this ‘great team’s….so overrated.
    Heres to the Niners, thanks for proving how bad a road team they are.
    49ers, Rams will try to help when we go to Seattle in wk17. Its December and no one is dominant in NFC. I’LL BE QUIET WHEN SEATTLE WINS AT LEAST NFC CONFERENCE. CAUSE SB IN NY and if and I doubt it, Seattle will lose SB…..again!

    hate all you want and call him a sore losing cheater, but he’s right. There were a couple 3rd down penalties that were called right, but there were a few that were garbage. The facemask penalties that resulted in 15 yarders where facemasks were barely grazed. The ticky tack “push off” on Tate that negated a first down on a 3rd down reception. Boldin taunting after every catch, even hitting a refs arms so he could get away from him to taunt some more. No call. Boldin swinging around Maxwell by the jersey and slamming him down. No call. Blatant holding on the o- line, no call. Yeah, they got a couple holding calls on Sherman right, but they got a whole lot wrong and didn’t call the game evenly. So haters are gonna hate, especially Florio on Sherman because that’s Florio’s favorite thing to do, but Sherman’s right. The questionable calls and quite a few blatantly wrong and missed calls all seemed to go to the home team.

    Wow. A cheathawk whining about officiating, how ironic. You cheaters were literally handed a game you didn’t win last year on the last play of the game, and your going to cry about getting called for mugging the niners receivers. No way this tool still isn’t using the OJ

  94. txpackfan52 says: Dec 9, 2013 7:26 AM

    The calls were legit. I don’t see what he has to complain about. As I stated in yesterday’s thread, if anything, they didn’t penalize them enough…great player without doubt, but the those corners are a little TOO aggressive. Just think he has gotten a tad spoiled by refs not flagging him as much as they should all year.

  95. pzamora1 says: Dec 9, 2013 7:28 AM

    Look at the tape, nothing questionable about all of those defensive holding calls, the refs have just given the Seahawks a pass for two years so now Sherman doesn’t even realize he’s been playing illegally all this time. Sherman = zero class.

  105. briank1ne says: Dec 9, 2013 8:14 AM

    Richard Sherman is such a punk. No wonder the majority of NFL fans can’t stand the Shehawks.

    The worst non-call of the game had to be the missed PI call on Seattle in the second half. The one where the Niners received was on the 5 yard line of Seattle’s and the defender went into him face first without even looking back at the ball.

  110. bigguy54 says: Dec 9, 2013 8:48 AM

    There were a lot of bad calls both ways. I would not say they caused us to lose the game though. We did not make a couple plays when we had to. All you haters tell me you would not want him on your team, he is one of if not the best CB in the league. I wish he would not have said this, but so what he did let’s get past it. I guess everyone missed the big time elbow Boldin hit Lane I think it was after a tackle. As they were on the ground he threw it big time right in front of the ref, but I guess he deserved that. Anyway, we loss, did not make some plays when needed, SF did. You know you don’t want to come back to our house, if you win you unfortunately will have to lose there. As far as playing on a neutral sight in NY we will be fine, SF congrats on the PB players you will have playing.

  111. citynative says: Dec 9, 2013 8:50 AM

    Whenever the Seahawks lose its always the refs, or injuries, or some other excuse. Fact is every fan base has its good and bad fans, but Seattle has to expect this reaction against them when they wear out the term 40 whiner. For the record you will also notice many fans from other teams have posted on this article.

  112. shutdaup says: Dec 9, 2013 9:21 AM

    I just watched cheat Carroll interview. He blames refs also. Apple doesn’t fall to far.

  113. mubbcsoc says: Dec 9, 2013 9:23 AM

    Are Seahawks fans refusing to comment because all they do is call us the 40whiners and all their team is doing is whining about penalties which were actually fairly even 9/85 vs 7/70… Seattle is just shocked to find that there are refs out there who know that grabbing jerseys and putting hands to the face are penalties.

  114. mancini199 says: Dec 9, 2013 9:24 AM

    I cant believe that A niners fan is calling the Seahawks classless, are you insane? the Niners have no room to talk. The Niners head coach is the biggest Douchbag in the game nobody can deny that and who has the better record? the Niners got so lucky with that run in the forth quarter. We shall see who the better team is and thats if the Whiners make it to the playoffs I hope so I want to see them in seattle so bad so we can send them packing.Go Seahawks our time has come

  121. taintedlombardis says: Dec 9, 2013 9:42 AM

    Sherman is overrated. His entire skillet consists of holding….and that’s about it.

  122. maccdasterdly says: Dec 9, 2013 9:43 AM

    You can hate on Sherman all you want but one of you would be talking if he played for the Santa Rosa 49ers or whatever you are now Go Seahawks I love it

  123. getaclueortwo says: Dec 9, 2013 9:54 AM

    “We didn’t project it to be this way,” Sherman said, via quotes distributed by the 49ers. “We expected to blow them out but they got the benefit of a few calls tonight throughout the game and that helps you especially on third down, we will see them again and it will be a different result.

    I see a glaring missing word in this quote. Here is a where’s Waldo moment. See if you can see the words “bad calls” or even the single word “bad” anywhere within the above quote. This once again affirms the notion that you can lead a human to writing but you can’t make them think.

  124. kaperchoke says: Dec 9, 2013 10:07 AM

    Lucky KraperNoob didn’t Choke.

    Give credit to the 49ers’ Defense, DC, Gore and Boldin for this win. Roman had to pull this out of his rear and extended his time, maybe until post season.

    KraperNoob still didn’t prove in this game he was better than Wilson or the QB he replaced when he didn’t earn the job, being handed the job to a SB caliber team since the middle of the last season. He’s still a Noob.

    Seattle on the hand proved is beatable as long as the game isn’t in Seattle and the 9ers defense provided a blue print to containing Wilson in the cage (pocket).

  125. jburk003 says: Dec 9, 2013 10:23 AM

    If I were Richard Sherman I would not be blaming this loss on the officiating. LOL I think all that adderall is clouding his judgement. Richard Sherman and all his CB buddies better learn how to play REAL, RIGHT, FAIR defense quick and soon. B/cuz anyone who watched that game last night watched Seattles Corners and Safteys hold jerseys all night long.

    The way the Seahawks played defense today was an absolute disgrace to the word football.

    I can’t remember a football game in my life where nearly after every play the commentators were talking about the pass interference by Seattle, and if it was called or not.

    No wonder they stop teams from scoring. Almost every single damn play they were holding the 49ers jerseys, their shoulder pad “V”, you name it.

    It was disgusting. And I hope the NFL took notice of it today. The NFL officials HAVE to be briefed before the officiate Seattles games to watch out for the PI and holds of their defenders.

    Anyone can be a good corner if your allowed to hold and grab. What happened today when the officials didn’t allow it??

    If I’m a head coach and I play Seattle then I’m making damn sure I complain publicly about how their corners cheat to get the calls in my favor.

    Stay classy, Sherman. Can’t wait for that stupid look on your face when you guys get upset at home.

  126. getaclueortwo says: Dec 9, 2013 10:35 AM

    news flash, Richard Sherman states that “good”, “awesome” and “legitimate” calls caused bad outcome in 49ers game

    “We didn’t project it to be this way,” Sherman said, via quotes distributed by the 49ers. “We expected to blow them out but they got the benefit of a few calls tonight throughout the game and that helps you especially on third down, we will see them again and it will be a different result.

    He didn’t say any of those things either. I wonder what other things Richard Sherman didn’t say that we can say that he said. He didn’t say bad calls, he didn’t say good calls, he didn’t say the sun was in his eyes, he didn’t say the smell of San Francisco turf made his eyes water. But, let’s just claim that Sherman said there were bad calls and see how many people will get all lathered up about it

  127. kkalama1 says: Dec 9, 2013 11:02 AM

    Id like to to the 49ers come into centurylink and almost beat us, we all already know whats gonna happen. To all you people that say seattle “isnt good on the road” lets see you go on the road and beat us. You barely survive at home

  128. PacificNWMark says: Dec 9, 2013 11:08 AM

    Penalties hurt Seattle badly yesterday (9 calls for 85 yards); yes, there were some questionable calls, but those happen every game and honestly the Seahawks have benefited from them as often as they’ve been hurt. Sherman is a talented player but Boldin got the better of him yesterday and Sherman should own up to that.

    BTW all of the reporting of this quote originated from the 49ers web site – while it sounds like something Sherman could have said, the 49ers are not exactly an impartial source.

  129. ekw060911 says: Dec 9, 2013 11:09 AM

    I used to think Sherman was a great corner until I started watching more Seahawks games. Every time a replay of him covering someone is shown he grabs the opponent’s jersey to stay with them. He should be thankful they don’t call holding on him more often.

  130. getaclueortwo says: Dec 9, 2013 11:23 AM

    the niners are catching up, it won’t be long now until they have the better scoring team. Since the first matchup between the hawks and the niners, the hawks have a slight scoring advantage but yesterday closed the gap some.
    Including yesterday total matchup scoring:
    Hawks=702
    Niners=568

    Good game niners fans, you’re now only 134 points down

  131. eacuna05 says: Dec 9, 2013 11:26 AM

    Hey Dick Sherman, so it wasn’t those catches you allowed or you failing to tackle Gore before he gained 51 yards?

    “Gotta play better than the refs ref.”

  132. thebirdofprey2 says: Dec 9, 2013 11:26 AM

    I think the questionable calls are just that. 49ers complain about those same ones in Seattle. I think just a few more went San Fran’s way and that’s football these days.

    Seattle played really well overall. 2 play calls got them and they were running plays. Frank Gore to give them field position and Kaep run to kill the clock when Hawks were rushing the passer.

    Give me thumbs down all you want but its not that loud at Candle Stick. On the road isn’t that big of a problem. 49ers are still in a dog fight to make the playoffs. Seattle has the division locked up with 1 win and # 1 seed with another. We still feel great. Go Hawks!

  134. nrae73 says: Dec 9, 2013 11:51 AM

    Sherman is hugely over rated. I really hope SEA gives him a HUGE contract this offseason.

    The league is starting to realize that it needs to start enforcing DB holding and PI rules, and not ignore them because just cuz team is doing it on every play. Up to now Carroll’s bet that ref’s don’t want to throw the hanky non-stop has paid off…..but other teams are starting to do the same thing.

    Wonder why all SEA db’s “seem” to do well, even if they just walked in off the street? Get big guys who can hold. Not really hard. But with other teams following SEA’s lead, the league that loves QB’s and scoring will inevitably come down on the tactic.

    Just watch the flags fly….and prepare to hear Sherman whine non-stop.

  135. getaclueortwo says: Dec 9, 2013 12:05 PM

    Congrats Peehawks, you’re now only 2-4 vs Harbaugh’s Niners!

    Seriously? OK, history doesn’t matter so you may never again mention the 5 trophies.
    Now, 2-4 vs Harbaugh’s niners
    and you are 1-2 vs Wilson
    You have only been outscored 128 to 100 with Harbaugh

  136. blabidibla says: Dec 9, 2013 12:07 PM

  138. jacqvoncc says: Dec 9, 2013 12:48 PM

    You people are seriously delusional…OK, first of all, nowhere in Sherman’s quote does he out right blame the refs for this loss. Secondly, it’s not like this was some blowout game that the 9ers completed dominated. You won by 2 freaking points, on a field goal, in the last 30 seconds of the game on YOUR home field. I’m not going to say as a Hawks fan I’m not bitter about the loss, but our guys played hard and fought all the way to the end. They never gave up. Let’s be real here though, does anyone actually think that SF can come back up to Seattle (if they even make it that far) in the playoffs and beat us? I think not.

  139. hendeeze says: Dec 9, 2013 1:10 PM

    Hey Sherman, if you don’t want to get flagged for holding. How about not getting caught with a handful of jersey anytime a WR flashes in front of you. Replay and game rewind busted you out!

  140. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:15 PM

    SF fans were fearful of a sweep, thinking a lucky 2 point win somehow equates to getting their doors blown off in Seattle every time they go there. And if they even make the playoffs, and intend to make the Super Bowl, guess where they will STILL have to go to get there?

  141. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:16 PM

    Boldin and Crabtree push off every pass play, but you want to enforce defensive holding because that crybaby coach whines about it through the media all week. Where was this consternation when Gilbride called out Justin Smith?

  142. noffy32 says: Dec 9, 2013 1:19 PM

  145. ayleswbj says: Dec 9, 2013 2:07 PM

    Its always some conspiracy with these Seahawks, They are the 2nd most penalized team in the NFL. Would it be fair to say that the Seahawks were doing just exactly what they always do. IT s not just a one week thing. ITs now a 13 week thing, in the human world Seahawk fans we call that a “trend”.
    Its becoming clear to me now why they took away your NBA team, you have no NHL team when your right next to the mecca of Hockey, your baseball team is as irrellevent as a AA minor league team an your the only ones who pay attention to your football team. The 49ers have beatin the Seahawks 5 of the past 7 games. Is it really crazy to think they couldnt do it again. Until the next conspiracy,

  146. zachameen says: Dec 9, 2013 2:12 PM

    Funny, Sherman says it was a glorified practice match and he is still crying about the loss :)
    Don’t Insult 49ers Defense by saying that your were expecting blowout because they are as good as your defense if not better.
    You are not unbeatable, thats what 49ers wanted to prove. We will come to your town and will beat you without our 12th man.
    Bad calls are a part of game and if your cries could fix it, we would be 11-2 , instead 9-4

  147. ayleswbj says: Dec 9, 2013 2:13 PM

    If its not the hot weather in Carolina, the 10Am games, the night games on short weeks, traveling across country, the refs and NFL holding you back. Please tell us Seattle what time of day you would like to play? which venue an where? Write a letter an maybe the NFL will accommodate you as you see fit.

    Until then you will always be known as the team who won a division below .500 and the team who had the catch that wasnt a catch, the team with the rampant Roid use, oh and dont let me forget the team who employed Jeremy Stevens the serial rapist for 6 seasons. Aside from that at least you have your 37 years of forgettable history.

  148. kkalama1 says: Dec 9, 2013 2:25 PM

  151. blazenhawks says: Dec 9, 2013 3:38 PM

    I want to start of saying GO Seahawks!

    Now this game was extremely hard to watch because there where so many bad call on both sides. The referees felt like they tried to control the game with the flags. Every time there was any time of momentum going on either side there was a flag. To me this was the worst game I have seen all year. Now 49ers to me out played the seahawks but only game out with a 2pt win. If the seahawks and 49ners meet in the playoffs then I am sure it will be a different game because it will be in seattle.

  152. scakfan says: Dec 9, 2013 3:53 PM

    The soon to be Santa Clara Whiners can’t even win gracefully. Sheesh!! The bias shown by the media and Fox was quit evident in this game. The Hawks were playing against not only the most motivated team of the year but a crew of refs that were hounded non stop by the baby whiner boss Harbaugh. Many holds by the Seahawks D were a reaction to receiver push-offs. Push-offs are clearly a career extending tactic of Boldin’s. Maybe we will meet again but you first need to get by the underated Bucs and Cardinals. Have nice trip to Florida and don’t forget to bring your sunscreen because you may burned…

    Seahawks used to be my second favorite NFL team — they were humble but tough, dignified, seemed to have a lot of fun, had good, faithful fans, were constant underdogs, were often ignored by the media, I thought they robbed in the S.B….I always really liked Matt Hasselbeck and Shaun Alexander (my first fantasy football players!) Even last year, I loved seeing Marshawn Lynch make that run against the Saints.

    But now, this year, I count them among my most disliked teams – I actually root for their opponents.

    I attritube my 180-degree turn almost entirely to the mouth and personality of Richard Sherman (which also seems to be rubbing off on both the fans and some of the teammates, as well). I imagine other people have had a similar change of opinion.

    Seattle’s record might be better this year, but to me, in every other important way, the fracnchise has gotten worse. The football gods don’t like such arrogance – mark my words: this season ends in disappointment for them.

    You SF fans are worse. And as someone who isn’t a fan of either team (but of one that owns SF, the Giants) you people are out in droves today. Can never find you when you lose. My team loses and I’m on here like always. You won by two points and got the benefit of calls that hurt Seattle a lot more than the ones that were called against San Francisco hurt San Francisco. I wouldn’t be talking if I were you, especially since you can’t beat them in Seattle.

    Talking about old titles is lame, particularly when even DALLAS has won since you last won, and everyone knows how foolish Dallas fans are when they talk about “Five Super Bowls.”

    This is 2013, and Seattle is better than San Francisco. 1994 or 1981 have no relevance here.

    The refs did do a bad job, that crew is known for that though I don’t agree it decided the game. I still think SEA is the better team this year but it was on the road in the last playoff type game at the stick against a good team that is built very similar. That was the outcome I expected. If Seattle has a playoff game where the refs really watch for def holding it could be a problem for them as there so aggressive. Of course if they make it to the super bowl where they don’t want any flags that will favor them

    This is 2013, and Seattle is better than San Francisco. 1994 or 1981 have no relevance here.

    u do know the 49ers won, right? since when is the loser of a game the better team?dont be mad cuz your giants stink and have to watch either dallas or eagles go to the playoffs lol

    Oh, come on now, Sherman! Look, I love the Seahawks and I love your style of play, but it was NOT bad officiating that caused the loss.

    First off, there were bad calls on both sides throughout the game. The holding calls on the SEA secondary WERE legit calls.

    What lost the game for the Hawks was that 51 yard run that was given up to Frank Gore – which was the result of blown assignments on defense and had nothing to do with officiating whatsoever.

    Don’t blame the refs, Sherm…SF just outplayed you guys on Gore’s run.

    That’s OK, though – go beat the Giants, Rams and Cards and maintain that #1 seed.

    GO HAWKS!

    No one believes San Francisco is a better team outside of it’s fans.

    A two point, last second, home field victory in the 49ers Super Bowl against a team that was playing for very little does not make for a juggernaut.

    not a fan of either team but wow 9ers coach was in the refs ear the whole game they should of thrown a flag on his crying butt and told to back off 9ers fans should be ashamed of such pathetic whining display from there coach Crybaugh

    ___________

    Harbaugh is a very smart coach and like any normal person has grown tired of SEA’s DB’s getting away with blatant holding and PI.

    Pete Carroll knows he cannot beat SF straight up and has to rely on both deafening noise and his defense playing like punks to win.

    Good for Boldin who abused Sherman like a red headed step child. That was fun to watch. I got the sense yesterday that the 49ers are done trying to play SEA cleanly. They punched back yesterday. Good for the refs for finally calling even just a portion of blatant holds and PI’s.

    It will be fun to watch SEA when the reality of the salary cap begins to take effect. Sooner than later they have to begin making the difficult decisions about which players they can kaep and which ones they have to cut loose.

    Kaep yapping about your 12th man home field invincibility. There was a time when GB was unbeatable at home too. It’s obvious that SEA needs both the noise advantage and an overwhelming amount of non calls on their “style” of play to consistently win. A good team can overcome one of those obstacles but not both.

    At some point sooner than later, a team is going to go into the clink and have the 12th man in their cars driving out of the parking lot at half time wondering how it could be that Sherman isn’t really that good and it’s 35-3 already. It’s coming. It’s inevitable.

    9ers beat the hawks. Barely. Beat. The. Hawks.

    Barely.

  167. strongmackn says: Dec 10, 2013 8:47 AM

    That was a great game to the niners and hawks. Hope all the fans both sides enjoyed it….

    Except the fans that use grammar to include themselves as if they are part of the team. Or as if they had something to do with the win in some way. You guys irritate me.

  168. mcmccii says: Dec 10, 2013 9:30 AM

    It’s too bad when a player’s great performance get overshadowed by their poor sportsmanship and affinity for never closing their mouth.
    He’s a sour sport and an arrogant ass.

  169. gosfvr says: Dec 10, 2013 2:55 PM

    I seriously think Sherman has a personality disorder and/or something is not right in his head.
    The man is not just crazy but also delusional.

  170. basedrum777 says: Dec 10, 2013 5:41 PM

    This is the Hawks team that almost lost to TB, STL & Hou earlier this year right?

    I actually hope the league does look at making sure the refs call defensive holding more often. Even if it meant they’d be “ruining” a few games, the dbacks would stop holding really quickly.

  171. dlk47823 says: Dec 10, 2013 5:43 PM

    Does this guy ever shut up? This team and their fans run their mouths like they actually won something. Hitting the lockerroom aderrall dispenser a little more than usual.

  172. pacnw66 says: Dec 10, 2013 5:49 PM

    Not taking responsibility for personal behavior does not surprise me. That seems to be the typical mindset in this day and age.

    However screaming the game was nothing more than a glorified practice did surprise me. The players have to know comments such as these will be aired.

    Niner fan after Niner fan saying that The Seahawks’ secondary (all of them) hold every game against every team on almost every play and not one single Seahawks fan prepared to say they don’t ?

    Interesting.

    Think we’re starting to work out why that D might as good as it is and why they can stack the box so often and not get burned.

    Hope the refs are starting to pay attention.

    Because people don’t want to engage trolls like you. Everyone knows Boldin and Crabtree push off every play, as it is the only way they can create separation.

    Truly great players are humble and don’t either trash talk before plays or taunt after plays. Jim Brown didn’t. Gayle Sayers didn’t. Johnny Unitas didn’t. Jerry Rice didn’t. In fact, there are probably only a small handful of great players who have played the macho BS talk like Sherman and his fellow Hawks.

    By this measure, no matter how often Seattle wins or even if they win the Super Bowl, they won’t have great players. Wait, I gotta role that back–I think Wilson is a great player who just lets his play speak for itself. Wish this alleged graduate of Stanford (did he graduate?) would learn to shut his pie-hole and just play the game. His macho BS is really old and tiresome. A little dose of sportsmanship wouldn’t hurt either.

    For a team that has never done anything Seattle sure talks a lot of sh!t. Unbeatable at home, very beatable on the road by equal or better teams.

    Calls went both ways. I think not stopping Gore was where this game went south, not the calls.

    Absolutely was, despite the drive-killing phantom calls against Seattle, that misread by Earl was the difference. San Francisco likely has to settle for a 50 yard field goal without that run, and Russ has much more time to put them into position to win on a last second FG even if Dawson makes it.

    @ Mr. Wright- I know it must be really tough hearing about past superbowl wins when your team has 0. I sympathize with you man, oh wait no I don’t. My team actually has superbowl wins. I don’t care if it was 20 years ago or not. It was still called the NFL, it was still called The Superbowl.

    Best record in football.

    Lot’s of whining about Sherman’s supposed whining.
