“It’s an atrocious idea,” the Pro Bowler said. “It’s almost racist to me. It’s weird they’re targeting one specific word. Why wouldn’t all curse words be banned then?”
When you win the Super Bowl, there isn’t much to complain about as far as overall team performance is concerned. But here is a look back at what the Seahawks excelled at and aspects of their game that they will need to tighten up next season.
Led by its All-Pro cornerback, Seattle’s “Legion of Boom” secondary and the nastiest defense in the NFL proved the strength of the Seahawks was greater than the record-setting arm of Peyton Manning in their stunning 43-8 rout on Sunday night.
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was taken to the locker room on a cart after appearing to hurt his right leg. He was hit by teammate Earl Thomas.
The Seattle Seahawks’ imposing and dominant defense is built on length and speed.
Almost there. Last up: the coaches. Denver’s John Fox and Seattle’s Pete Carroll were scheduled to hold their final news conferences Friday morning, the last time everyone will hear from the teams until after the Lombardi Trophy is awarded.
They have been the most compelling figures during Super Bowl 48 pregame media availabilities for players — which, as of Thursday, are over. Until after the game.
Despite all of the apologies and backtracking and tweeting, at the end of the day — and upon reiterating that Crabtree really is a “mediocre” receiver — Sherman still doesn’t get it.
As the players get ready for Super Bowl XLVIII, it’s not all about practice. On Wednesday, Seattle’s Phil Bates traded in his cleats for a microphone and spent 10 minutes harassing his teammates.
Predictably, his podium was the most crowded, by far, during Seahawks media day on Tuesday at Prudential Center. He arrived early and stayed late, and Richard Sherman enjoyed every minute of it.
The New York Daily News apparently came away unimpressed, running with the back-page headline: “THE MOUTH THAT BORED — Seahawks’ Sherman suddenly goes soft, gets Super Bowl week off to sorry start.”
An icy wind made its way through the Meadowlands, cut across the Hudson River and into frigid Manhattan. Looks like Mother Nature is taking seriously the NFL’s slogan for the upcoming Super Bowl: Best Served Cold.
The Seattle Seahawks are talking the talk, but will they walk the walk in Super Bowl XLVIII? From Richard Sherman’s rant to Walter Thurmond saying Wes Welker’s hit on Aquib Talib was uncalled for, it’s all building for an exciting game.
In the days since his rant, Sherman has moonwalked from his outburst. Well, kinda. He didn’t apologize for humiliating Michael Crabtree, but insisted he was sorry for deflecting from his team.
Rather than focusing on silly statistics like Denver’s 0-3 Super Bowl record when wearing their orange jerseys, this is going to be on legitimate game-changing X-Factors.
