Richard Sherman‘s incident on the sideline and the choking gesture have gotten a lot of publicity since Sunday. That is all the media wants to speak about at the moment. Richard Sherman is going to be Richard Sherman. That is the way he acts and he thinks he is the best player in the game and he doesn’t mind telling people that. It shouldn’t be a surprise. People love him for that and people hate him for that, but that is the way that he is going to be.

People asked Sherman if he was going to tone it down a bit and he responded, “It’s too late for that. I can only be myself.” He also added “I don’t know how to be anybody else. I can just be myself.”

Why would Sherman change things up right now. It is part of his game to get into players heads and he backs up his talk with his play on the field. That is why people hate him.

    Everyone that hates Sherman should re-read the last two sentences. We all know it! You hate him because he’s not on your team! Call him mediocre because he only records two tackles? Think Revis is one of the best? Look at his tackle numbers. Opposing quarterback know they can’t throw to their guy that’s being covered by the best.
