rickythepenguin: It's gotten to the point that the Richard Sherman "outburst" has already been dissected more times than the Zapruder film


It's getting to the point
Where I'm no thug anymore
Elll ohhh beeeee-eeeee
Sometimes it hurts
So badly I must cry out loud
Erin, I am sorrrry

I ain't yours, it is mine, you are mediocre
The Super Bowl
Yo Crab, remember what you and done and said about the greatest
biatch, I have no mercy
Go check the scoreboard and see what you don't have now
(I am not dreaming)
I ain't yours, it is mine, you are mediocre
You suck so bad

Super Bowl Sunday
Please be gone I'm tired of you
We own the NFC

Russel Wilson's pump fake
NaVorro's busted ass leg
How can you catch the Seahawk?


harleyquinnical: Bunny Deville: mikaloyd: Bunny Deville: YOU'RE ALL MAKING BABY JESUS CRY

NOW STAHP

YOU ARE NOT THE BABY JESUS BUNNY! PEYTON MANNING IS! WE ALL KNOW IT!

They won't stop, mika. They won't STOP. Make them STOP. 1000 posts about Sherman in the last few days. There are other things to talk about than someone who got excited and said some shiat! Jesus H. Piebald Christ in a jumped up Chevy, if I had this amount of discussion for every time I made a social faux pas, well, I'd be a well and thouroughly discussed individual...


MAKE IT STAAAAAAAAAHP

[Music by Tom Petty; new Lyrics to 'To Be Me']

Marshawn ran the ball all day
The Hawks wanted to put the game away
Kaepernick threw the best he could
And Crabtree was in the neighborhood

The man had been ignored all game
But now everyone will know his name
Sports writers just won't let it die
As Sherman helps the Seahawks fly

Andrews got to the point
And his answer was out of joint
Analysts would replay
The sound bytes all day

This must be how it feels
This must be how it feels
To be Di

rickythepenguin: Shame Us: The key will be whether the pass rush can get to Manning. Even of they don't get sacks, if they get hits and pressures, he'll wear down.


yeah but when is the last time Peyton has really taken a shot?  he has an uncanny ability to dump the ball before contact.  rare is the time he gets popped.  i kinda recall a game last year where someone got a clean shot on him and the announcers were like, "whoa, you don't see that very often!"


He got popped in the preseason game against the Seahawks, IIRC.

I can't believe how much shiat hines ward used to take around here. That dude was the football players football player.

And back then (yes, WAAAAAAAY back then) the rules as far as hard contact and peel back blocks were different. Ward was a tough mofo.

Hell, Carroll even managed to turn Sidney Rice into a halfway decent blocker.

For me that's just how it ought to be done. So many prima donna WR's just won't deign to block, let alone put forth the effort to be worth a shiat at it. Seems like such a waste.

TwoBeersOneCan: Bane of Broone: TwoBeersOneCan: PluckYew: Who is going to be the 1st Seahawk fan to rage quit Fark because of all the negative Seahawk/Sherman greens?

That already happened with a Cowboys fan during the epic tidal wave of December Cowboys threads.

That was glorious.

It was certainly something to witness, but I'll miss the trivia in the power rankings threads.  Maybe someone will pick up the slack next season.


Is this the thread you're talking about?

WhyKnot: my lip balm addiction: INeedAName: Sherman's rant was somewhat classless.

Sherman himself seems to be a pretty down to earth guy.

Neither of these things make him a 'thug.'

Exactly. Everyone single one of these racist douchebag haters needs to watch this video here to see what a thug football player really is:  http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/news/video-cass-tech-football-player-body-sla m s-security-guard

At the end it all comes out - this is Luther Campbell's kid. You know, from 2 Live Crew? He was already in trouble for punching an opposing player and then he goes and pulls this shiat.

Sherman is loud-mouthed and brash. Luther Campbell and his kid are farking thugs. Was that comparison so hard to get, you farking monkeys

Just because Luther Campbell's kid is violent, doesn't change how Sherman conducted himself.  Stop bringing other aspects of who Sherman is...look at that moment, what he said, how he conducted himself, his body language...he gave the appearance of a thug...loud, angry, aggressive body mannerisms...look, I actually think he is very smart dude, he is a great football player, but he cam across as an ass and certainly was trying to act all hard for the camera...i.e. he was acting like a thug.


Acting and being are 2 different things. THAT was my point.

The one thing I have told everyone though is, come on. It's Richard Sherman. He is the 'last' person I would have stuck a mic in front of at that moment. Fox farked up and I absolutely believe they share in the blame for such exceedingly poor judgment.

He is the exact person they were going to stick a mic in front of. Fox wanted that. The fact that the producer pussed out and ended the interview is ridiculous. The only reason to fish around on the field right after the game is to try to get a "raw" reaction from players. They got one and ran screaming.

How did they fark up? That moment has been the most talked about thing in sports news since it happened and it has given every sports writer something to add to the Super Bowl hype without having to try to manufacture a story. It seems the only people that think negatively about it are racist and prudes who think that anything more than handing the ball to the officials and walking to the sideline after scoring a touchdown is showboating.

The fact that he is the guy they wanted shows poor judgment IMO. But whatever. It has been awesome all season to watch the games online. I can hear the explosions of the fireworks outside my window usually about 10 seconds before the play shows on my computer, so I always turn it up and know when the TD is coming. When Lynch got that 40 yarder, I was like WTF? There was gonna HAVE to be something amazing lol.
 
2014-01-23 07:43:35 PM
Thesis: Richard Sherman (arguably slightly overenthusiastic) is to Marshawn Lynch (fined $50K for not speaking to the press, although the fine was later rescinded) as Mama Cass (too much sandwich) is to Karen Carpenter (not enough sandwich). Discuss.

Not a racist or a prude. I would have gone and tried to get Lynch to talk to him about his TD long before talking to Sherman. But hey, that's me. I love Richard Sherman - dude is hella smart, and very articulate away from the field. But on the field he is a maniac - not exactly who I want to hear from at that moment. Ten minutes later he is articulate and calm again - that was the time to interview him.

But yea - it certainly has been spoken about for what - 5 days now including Sunday? Can't wait til next week so we got some new quotes to talk about - and then the 2nd is gonna be one great game.

You always come off as such a douche.

I just hate that he took away from the teams moment - THAT is why I wouldn't stick a mic in his face. Look at my other responses above - 10 minutes later when he was on the dais is when I want to hear his take. But hey - that's me. You can have your opinion but stop with the name-calling and innuendo just because I have different take on things, 'k?

Shame Us: DVOA measures every play based on where it is on the field, game clock, score, etc. and puts it up against the "average" leaguewide outcome in those situations. You can use it for offense, defense, special teams. Basically it measures how much better or worse you are than the average.


So it's the same method meteorologists and oceanographers use when they say a year is El nino or La nina.

As for Manning, Bryant and Clemons are going to make his life a little more difficult.  Irvin will have the option to spy Manning or blitz him if he can make it through the protection.  Depending on the range of the pass, he'll find a soft spot in the zone, or just throw an accurate ball so the defender doesn't have a chance as he's prone to do.  Either this or some Denver receiver is going to get seriously farked up the moment he catches the ball.

You don't know much about football then. What the people at Fox know, and what you obviously don't know, is that Lynch doesn't like to speak to the media, and he avoids doing so. So putting a mic in his face after the game wouldn't have been a good interview. Now interviewing a guy who likes to talk, and on top of that just made an incredible play to seal the game, you would be a fool not to put a mic in his face. Like I said, they knew what they were doing and got the result that they wanted. Only a minority of people were bothered by it, and being part of that minority doesn't bode well for you.

Yeah, and he knows that part - that's why it's the only part he apologized for. Didn't apologize at ALL for what he said about Crabtree, only that he took the spotlight away from his teammates. I just think it's silly that you'd say they shouldn't go to the guy who is known as a great interview, really smart, and just made the game-clinching play (well, part of it).

harleyquinnical: Irvin will have the option to spy Manning or blitz him if he can make it through the protection.


Yeah, they won't have to take his ass out because he f*cks up and doesn't hold the edge and lets Kaepernick out for 58-yard runs. If Manning runs for 58 yards...damn.

This is the argument that people default to when every other argument they have has been tossed back in their face. And I will toss this one back in your face also. He did give a shout out to his defense, and his interview was cut short by the producers right before he went on to talk about the defense and his team.

You need to give it up. The team didn't care, Erin Andrews thought the interview was great, and the NFL didn't care.

They aren't going to spy Manning. What he is going to have to do is stay put to watch Welker coming underneath. Welker is either going to have a huge game, or be carted off the field because he is going to get a lot of balls thrown his way.

Maybe? IDK. It's proven to be a very effective stat to quantify how well teams have played vs. how well they "should" have played based on field position, down and distance, game clock, score and on and on.

Basically it levels the playing field statistically so you can measure one performance vs. another in a different game (ie: who played better in the Championship round - Seattle or Denver?) and takes out that "Yeah, but they were playing in different games with different situations" factor. Since it's been in use, it's also been a reasonably good predictor of a team's success the next season. It predicted that Carolina and Seattle would have better seasons than last year (IIRC, Seattle was in the top 3 and carolina was 6th or something last year despite W/L records that would indicated otherwise).

What I'm marveling at is the lack of interview from Malcom Smith for the actual interception.  Then again, he looked like he was going to run it out of the end zone, but if he tried, Earl Thomas was just going to tackle him to the ground.  You're right that nobody was going to be as energetic as Sherman.  Erin Andrews said that was the reaction FOX wanted; they got it, and now Sherman is a freakin' household name.

That is one thing that really amazes me about the NFL. These guys are supposed to be the best of the best, and guys still fark this up at an alarming rate. And it isn't a concept that is new to them when they hit the NFL, this is something that the outside defensive players have pounded into their heads from the days of peewee football. But several times in every game you see guys blow their outside containment and chase a play instead of maintaining their assignment.

Short DVOA explanation straight from the horse's mouth:

DVOA is a method of evaluating teams, units, or players. It takes every single play during the NFL season and compares each one to a league-average baseline based on situation. DVOA measures not just yardage, but yardage towards a first down: Five yards on third-and-4 are worth more than five yards on first-and-10 and much more than five yards on third-and-12. Red zone plays are worth more than other plays. Performance is also adjusted for the quality of the opponent. DVOA is a percentage, so a team with a DVOA of 10.0% is 10 percent better than the average team, and a quarterback with a DVOA of -20.0% is 20 percent worse than the average quarterback. Because DVOA measures scoring, defenses are better when they are negative. For more detail, read below.

There is a ton of crap that follow that "read below". Like pages of explanations.

Lynch doesn't talk to the press.  Everyone knows that.   He is the first guy off the field when they win specifically so he doesn't have to talk to the press.

If you're a reporter and you're chasing Marshawn Lynch around looking for a quote when Richard Sherman is right there, you deserve to get fired.

I'm just trying to picture the Vegas odds for those two scenarios if it was like a horse race or something.  Yes, you could bet Lynch will say something, and if he does it's news, but Sherman is far more likely to come through and while nobody thinks is huge news, you'll still get something you can use.

I think the play where Irvin loses contain is the designed bootleg run that went for like 20 yards.

1-10-Midfield (8:00 3rd Quarter) C. Kaepernick left end pushed OB at SEA 28 for 22 yards (B. Maxwell).
EPA: 3.71; WPA: -7%

Play action is pretty important. Selling the run with a great false hand-off can suck in linebackers and create space to complete passes. If you really, really want to sell the run, pull a weakside guard. San Francisco does on this play but not for a play-action pass. They sell the run to Frank Gore to open up a bootleg run for Colin Kaepernick.
Bruce Irvin is unblocked at the line but the pulling guard and run-fake sucks him in to try to tackle Gore and Kaepernick takes off to the left. Crabtree makes a solid block on Maxwell and Kaep dashes for 22. Simple, yet elegant. Masterfully done.



The fact that they pulled the guard on top of faking to Gore - I'm not sure you can blame Irvin for getting sucked in on that one.

Yeah, they won't have to take his ass out because he f*cks up and doesn't hold the edge and lets Kaepernick out for 58-yard runs. If Manning runs for 58 yards...damn.

Hold on- On the 58 yarder, Kaep stepped up and ran up the gut like a draw. Wagner and Smith are the ones who whiff downfield.

So, the safety was off when Seattle shot themselves in the foot on that play?


Yeah - it looks like a basic Cover 3 Zone with Chancellor at the line and Thomas covering deep with no spying LB. As soon as they see pass, everyone backs off into their zones and when the LBs take bad angles, it's off to the races.

IAmRight: If Manning runs for 58 yards...damn.


The last time Manning ran for 58 yards in an entire SEASON was 2002. In 2013 he's -31 for the year.

If Manning has 58yds rushing in the SB then we'll know that the entire Hawks defense was struck by food poisoning or Eugene Robinson took them all to a whorehouse the night before.

I find it amusing that's there's no hatred between the bronco and hawk fans. The niner and patriot groups need to stfu already.

justtray: On the bright side, now Seattle fans gets to feel like Vikings fans did when Favre was at the helm and the most hated player in the NFL due to the media hype. So that's... something.


but brent farhrhveruh is white. everyone loved him because black people are being persecuted for talking a little loud. you must be racist.

spiderpaz: IAmRight: JohnBigBootay: On the other hand you are on record as saying it will be "tough" for the broncos to defend against a guy who has one catch this season.

A) he has four now - he made three against the Saints before they cheap-shotted his way out of that game
B) it's tough to defend something you haven't seen much of on film
C) he makes much more of an impact on other receivers' ability to get open than Crabtree does, due to his speed and how he's used

Don't expect Harvin to come out guns blazing.  He's bound to be a little rusty considering he's been out all season and now is coming off a concussion.  The best use of Harvin will be as a distraction because D coordinators are afraid of what he might do.  Wouldn't surprise me if he jacks up a route or something and lets one get picked if they try to do too much with him too soon.


I full expect Harvin to get a pitch in the backfield, gain 20 yards, and fall over with another injury.

We got that out of our systems back in the 80s. Old school fans are getting their Bronco Busters t-shirts out of mothballs (and realizing that they don't fit anymore).

Perhaps it was on another one of the long runs - I read/heard somewhere that that was the play and repeated it. I was at the game - didn't really catch any replays.

A buddy I know is making a limited run of them. Of course, since he isn't really going to be able to get the logo permissions required to sell them, he can't use actual logos, but oh well.

ongbok: my lip balm addiction: ongbok: my lip balm addiction: WhyKnot: my lip balm addiction: INeedAName: Sherman's rant was somewhat classless.

Sherman himself seems to be a pretty down to earth guy.

Neither of these things make him a 'thug.'

Exactly. Everyone single one of these racist douchebag haters needs to watch this video here to see what a thug football player really is:  http://www.wxyz.com/dpp/news/video-cass-tech-football-player-body-sla m s-security-guard

At the end it all comes out - this is Luther Campbell's kid. You know, from 2 Live Crew? He was already in trouble for punching an opposing player and then he goes and pulls this shiat.

Sherman is loud-mouthed and brash. Luther Campbell and his kid are farking thugs. Was that comparison so hard to get, you farking monkeys

Just because Luther Campbell's kid is violent, doesn't change how Sherman conducted himself.  Stop bringing other aspects of who Sherman is...look at that moment, what he said, how he conducted himself, his body language...he gave the appearance of a thug...loud, angry, aggressive body mannerisms...look, I actually think he is very smart dude, he is a great football player, but he cam across as an ass and certainly was trying to act all hard for the camera...i.e. he was acting like a thug.

Acting and being are 2 different things. THAT was my point.

The one thing I have told everyone though is, come on. It's Richard Sherman. He is the 'last' person I would have stuck a mic in front of at that moment. Fox farked up and I absolutely believe they share in the blame for such exceedingly poor judgment.How did they fark up? That moment has been the most talked about thing in sports news since it happened and it has given every sports writer something to add to the Super Bowl hype without having to try to manufacture a story. It seems the only people that think negatively about it are racist and prudes who think that anything more than handing the ball to the officials and walking to the sideline after scoring a touchdow ...

Not a racist or a prude. I would have gone and tried to get Lynch to talk to him about his TD long before talking to Sherman. But hey, that's me. I love Richard Sherman - dude is hella smart, and very articulate away from the field. But on the field he is a maniac - not exactly who I want to hear from at that moment. Ten minutes later he is articulate and calm again - that was the time to interview him.

But yea - it certainly has been spoken about for what - 5 days now including Sunday? Can't wait til next week so we got some new quotes to talk about - and then the 2nd is gonna be one great game.

You don't know much about football then. What the people at Fox know, and what you obviously don't know, is that Lynch doesn't like to speak to the media, and he avoids doing so. So putting a mic in his face after the game wouldn't have been a good interview. Now interviewing a guy who likes to talk, and on top of that just made an incredible play to seal the game, you would be a fool not to put a mic in his face. Like I said, they knew what they were doing and got the result that they wanted. Only a minority of people were bothered by it, and being part of that minority doesn't bode well for you.


 I dont really have anything germaine to contribute. I just wanted to add to the zany redonkulously big wall of text youse guys are building.

When the 'Hawks were in the AFC West, all my NFL Hate was reserved for the Broncos.    After they moved to the NFC, it took me a looong time (like within the last three years) to migrate that hate to the 49ers.

I just don't have the energy left to move any back.   Except for Elway.  I hate that farkin' guy.

Marmilman: TwoBeersOneCan: Bane of Broone: TwoBeersOneCan: PluckYew: Who is going to be the 1st Seahawk fan to rage quit Fark because of all the negative Seahawk/Sherman greens?

That already happened with a Cowboys fan during the epic tidal wave of December Cowboys threads.

That was glorious.

It was certainly something to witness, but I'll miss the trivia in the power rankings threads.  Maybe someone will pick up the slack next season.

Is this the thread you're talking about?


I'm honestly not sure.  From a quick bro

It was either that one or one shortly thereafter.  I really don't feel the need to go back and rehash it.  It was an epic meltdown to witness, but I wish it had been done by someone else due to the typical (i.e. when he's not letting himself get trolled at 110%) quality of Trey's posts.

That was a mess on my part.  Preview should be my friend.  Anyway, the relevant response is still at the bottom, at least.

Actually, we'd be biatching about the 'Peyton Oversaturation' by now if it wasn't for Sherman.

Again. We need to crush them to the tune of something like 55-10 and have them show Elway having flashbacks with his 1000-yard stare on his face for most of the second half.
