Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a great player, maybe like he says the best corner in the game. And his trash talking while at times can be entertaining, is beginning to go too far. His post game rant on San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree after the NFC Championship game is a prime example of this.
I can understand him being exciting and pumped up after making a big play that helped the Seahawks get to the Super Bowl. But at some point the trash talk needs to be kept to a limit before things escalate. As apparently there is a personal issue between Sherman and Crabtree stemming from a incident that happened in the offseason.
So there’s no doubt that the personal feelings the two men had for each other spilled over into the game, and riled up Sherman to tell the world his feelings in a post game interview. Redskins fans know all too well about Sherman’s antics, as they were on full display last season before, during, and after the Redskins wildcard game with the Seahawks.
But we’ve seen trash talking corners before. Deion Sanders was a Redskin at one time, and DeAngelo Hall can talk trash with the best of them. But Richard Sherman seems to take things to a whole other level, and at some point Sherman’s antics are going to incite an altercation and someone is going to get hurt.
In fact an altercation has already happened, as Redskins fans can recall. But if Sherman doesn’t start toning it down, it will get much worse than this.
