IAmRight: And if I win those AND the Seahawks win, good LORD I'm going to be obnoxious to the haters. I'll probably get perma-banned.
Shame Us: sammyk: Am I racist if I just think he is an asshole of epic proportions?I get feeling like he's an asshole, I just don't get the severity of people's feelings about the guy. It's insane. He talks trash - so did Jordan, so did Payton, so does Brady, so does Boldin, etc.
IAmRight: If Manning runs for 58 yards...damn.
arentol: rickythepenguin: Robert1966: I was impressed by Sherman's follow-up. It seems he got worked up and made an ass of himself, and now feels a little foolish but stands by his expressions of confidence and his feeling that he had been disrespected by someone who is too lazy to play as well as he does. I don't know that there is a racial angle to it, but I guess people on both sides like to put one there.i said the other day dude was SURGING on adrenalin. he was about 2-3 minutes (if that) removed from the final whistle, realizing he'd achieved a lifelong dream: THE SUPER BOWL. yeah he wsa jacked. he looked silly and it was exceedingly poor sportsmanship, but, he was just pulsing with adrenalin.and as i also said, NBC or whomever, fox, whatever, they knew wha tthey were getting. they specifically chose sherman, knowing he'd go operation codename: richard sherman. he went operation codename: richard sherman and then the network aborted the interview (per dan patrick today; erin andrews said she wsa told to cut it short).and once agian, i loved Daryl Wright's tweet: "dear media: how about you quit sending erin andrews to interview n___s on live tv?"You also forgot the part where the interview was less than 2 minutes from Crabtree shoving Sherman in the face when Sherman was congratulating him on a good game and looking for a sportsman-like handshake. I forget, which one of them was the bad sportsman again? People keep saying Sherman, but all I can picture in my head is Crabtree being the douchiest douche that ever douched his way across a football field.
harleyquinnical: rickythepenguin: spiderpaz: It could be a low scoring snoozer, or a shootout, or a blowout by either team potentially. You could make and argument for each.last i checked the o/u was i think 47.5. i say under, and SEA wins like, 25-17, 27-15. i say under BIGTIME and I just don't see Denver scoring a lot. and denver gave up points a lot this year. like they gave up something like 48 to Dallas, yet still won.SEA's defense is no joke. I just can't see Peyton doing a whole lot against this secondary.a 35-30 shootout would shock me. one, I can't see SEA giving up that many points. i think Denver was favored, and I get that, Peyton is a popular bet and all, i just don't see DEN matching up well with these guys.SEA, high single digits. maybe 10-12 points.I'm with you on this. Due to all the trouble the Seattle offense has had getting going, they are not going to break 24 points. The defense is going to give Manning a run for his money on multiple fronts. This is going to come down to which Defense can score some points from a pick 6 or turn over. It will take multiple defensive scores to hit an over like that. I don't see it, especially if there is lots of snow going on./Also, I liked your cut of Suite Sherman Blue Eyes
Rent Party: The purpose of Seattle's recievers isn't to actually catch balls, though. It's to keep safetys and linebackers honest for this guy.
Shame Us: LessO2: The_Sponge: LessO2: Yet, we can count on all the Seahawk "faithful" to post dozens of times in this thread.Already started.Then why are you here?For the lulz of course.You and some others ought to try it. Get outside once in awhile and stop taking sports so g-damned seriously.I love the people that think they're the only ones who lead productive lives and still manage to be on the internet during the day. Everyone else is a shut-in living on hot pockets and cheetos.
ongbok: mikaloyd: Bunny Deville: YOU'RE ALL MAKING BABY JESUS CRYNOW STAHPongbok: Maybe if Crabtree hadn't shoved him in the face after he tried to shake his hand and congratulate him on a good game, he wouldn't have felt the need to tell the world how much of a mediocre receiver he is.Maybe if they used La-Z-Boys instead of folding chairs Bobby Knight wouldnt have thrown them. Maybe if sand was a WMD Bush would have been 100% justified in farking up Iraq. Maybe if Grandma watched ESPN she'd give up her daytime story shows. You just never can tell.Yeah, but I going to say that Crabtree's own actions less than 2 minutes before the interview led to him being called out.
Shame Us: As a Seahawks fan, I wish he hadn't done it that way.
Shame Us: AdmirableSnackbar: It wouldn't have been a jump ball if it had been thrown properly. The way it was thrown it was a jump ball at the front of the end zone. It was only because the ball was underthrown that Sherman was able to extend and deflect the pass. If it was deeper it's beyond his reach and Crabtree has a chance to make a back-corner catch while shielding Sherman off with his back. Kaep was consistently underthrowing his passes all game, severely so on the two picks.Yu're assuming that had Kaep thrown the pass deeper into the endzone, Sherman would have played it exactly the same way? Crabtree would have too? If the ball is throw 5 yards deeper, the two guys aren't going to be playing for it the same way. Sherman wouldn't have leapt for the ball 5 yards short and Crabtree would have kept running toward the back of the endzone.The fact is that Sherman doesn't give up the fade. They've tried a handful of times this season and the best outcome has been an incomplete pass. He has now tipped passes to his teammates twice on fades.
stappawho: sammyk: Am I racist if I just think he is an asshole of epic proportions?Nope, just ignorant.
Shame Us: Seriously, he was talking into a camera about one guy. Yes it was nationally televised, but there is no way you can say it's worse than what we know players say on the field. We have clear video of players in various sports calling people f*ggots and impugning their lineagewives/sisters etc.
Shame Us: AdmirableSnackbar: Shame Us: AdmirableSnackbar: Shame Us: Hell, I'd say that Crabtree is below Kaepernick, Gore, Davis and Boldin as far as "skill" players on the Niners offense are concerned. So 5th best/most important player. That guy coming back is not going to drastically change your offense.In terms of importance, maybe, but he's still a far better WR than Kaepernick is a QB.If Kaepernick wasn't a mediocre - MEDIOCRE!!!! - QB San Fran wins that game.Yeah - if the players on a team are better, they play better.But that's why I think Sherman is an ass for what he said. It takes all 11 players playing at a high level for any individual player to be great. Calling out one guy whose success is extremely dependent upon another player is ignorant, especially when that other player (in this case, Kaepernick) was downright dreadful in that game. Heck, on the game-clinching play Crabtree had beaten Sherman. Sherman was only able to make the play he did because Kaepernick underthrew the ball. For some reason, people seem to think that Crabtree could control that and that Crabtree lost the matchup when that couldn't be further from the truth.Crabtree was covered on the play. Sherman was right in front of him coontil the little shove from Crabtree) and is 2 inches taller than him with longer arms. A fade route in the corner of the endzone (which would have been where Kaep wanted to throw it) over a taller DB standing infront of the receiver is not an open play. It is at best a jumpball where your WR has the disadvantage. The pass never should have been thrown and a fade vs. Sherman never should have been called.Also, Sherman did acknowledge that he was sorry that he took away from his teammates' accolades and that he owes his success to them (specifically the D-Line and Earl Thomas).
Shame Us: spiderpaz: IAmRight: AdmirableSnackbar: Crabtree had beaten ShermanWherein by beaten you mean "shoved Sherman in the back to illegally create separation"That might not be as funny if you didn't ignore the fact that the Seattle secondary have their hands all over the receivers all the time.Just like every other decent secondary in the league. Yes, even san fran's.

IAmRight: Shame Us: The expectations of how a guy coming off of an Achilles tear would open up the offense were way too highThe amount his impact was overstated was ridiculous, as well.49ers offense without Crabtree: 24.91 points/game49ers offense with Crabtree: 24.38 points/gameWHOA WHAT A HUGE WEAPON!
IAmRight: WHOA WHAT A HUGE WEAPON!
Super Chronic: Well, why DID they try him with a sorry receiver like Crabtree?/ducks out of thread

Ow! That was my feelings!: Phil Moskowitz: But no one saw what D'glester Hardunkichud said at half time. It's all just water under the bridge with that guy.[pixel.nymag.com image 190x190]"I could talk about Fudge all day."
Ishkur: mikaloyd: We will know that Sherman's interview style has jumped the shark once a political analyst chimes in with "This is an uncomfortable discussion that America has needed to have for a long time"Now is not the time to talk about gun violence uppity black football players.

doubled99: I bet he probably robbed a liquor store and did a driveby before the game.Typical thug. he's from Compton, you know how it goes with them...
