I want Peyton and the rest of the Denver Mannings to make a fool of him in two weeks.

Classy huh? Just one of the reasons I no longer am a fan of the stick and ball sports.

The guy made a total ass of himself and really but a big damper on good feelings for Seattle in the rest of the country. Probably didn’t have any effect in and around Seattle but it did eslewhere. It was very good that when it was Russel Wilson’s turn to speak he did so as a good sport, humble nice guy.

Without football, I believe he would be a statistic referring to a person in the ground or behind bars.

Wilson is a humble guy. If the 49ers had won, thug-wannabe Kaepernick likely would’ve had a similar interview. I’m so glad the Seahawks won.

I don’t do Facebook. But my wife does. Apparently, Sherman effectively made a whole lot more Denver fans with his full on thug blast on live TV.

I hope Peyton shows up and has another regular season performance. I’d like to see his a$$ picked a part by Welker/Manning and Co.

Oh for goodness sakes. It’s a football game, not a Sunday social with the ladies. Now, if he acted like a jerk off the field, that would be a different story.

FOX Sports knows what a loud-mouth rectum Sherman is. That’s why they told Andrews to go talk to him.

"I told him, 'Good game and good try, but I'm the best corner in the game.'"

Crabtree shoves Sherman out of his face after Sherman taunted him almost all the way to the 49er's sideline.
Ref had already thrown a flag for taunting.

For all the folks who blow a 20 amp fuse because of an interview, well, I think Curling needs more fans... or table tennis!

They can always watch those guys mumbling on the golf courses on Saturdays!

Personally, I give the guy a break. He’s a Stanford grad who stuck around an extra year to work on an MBA. They interviewed him moments after the biggest game of his life and he made the biggest play of his life. He was still in game mode, where they were in a heated, trash talking battle.

Stick a microphone in a lot of guys..especially defensive players...while they are in game mode, they would be intense, too.

Was it good to do..no...he should have waited or taken a second to calm down.

This reminds me of the Bart Scott interview a few years ago during the playoffs where he was still clearly in game mode. He didn’t stoop so low to criticize his opposition like this one, but he was mentally still in the game in intensity and cadence like this.

For heaven's sakes. It's a football game

I thought it was hilarious. The guy seemed genuinely angry and willing to express what he was really thinking. I'm actually sick of all of the dumb answers to dumb questions we usually get after sports events.

Angry?..these guys are making boat loads of money while playing the game they love. There is no reason to be angry. They should be very appreciative that the fans are still willing to pay so damned much for their bloated salaries!

I wonder what is was that Crabtree had said before the game about Sherman to have him all fired up?

Sherman is actually a pretty bright cookie. Writes a good column on MMQB. Crabtree has been talking him down in the press lately, probably jawing him in the game. People generally aren’t at their most considered when pumped full of adrenalin after the biggest play of their career. He was much calmer in later post game interviews once the adrenalin went away.

“If he played baseball would get a high and tight fastball.”

—Justin Verlander via twitter

There’s a reason you don’t have baseball players gyrating in celebratory chest-thumpery after hitting a single or moonwalking down to first after drawing a walk.

The NFL players can’t self police themselves with the penalty system, modern officiating and a million reviewable camera angles. It would have too much effect the outcome of the game, especially as every game is so important in the NFL season.

Thus a league full of players who have no problem with dancing self-congratulatory buffoonery like triumphal capering and hooting after almost every play that is even marginally successful on some level, even if it’s just falling on a loose ball.

Why a thug want to be? I read the guys bio I didn’t see anything thuggish. Perhaps you have some evidence. If not stfu.

I was watching this football game last night and this Sherman guy did an interview with this chick. He was very angry. "THUG" was my first thought. Before that interview, I didn't know anything more about the guy than his name and position. That's MY evidence.

If he doesn't like his image, tough cookies. He made that bed. Perception is reality and all that. If you don't like what I or anyone else thinks of him, oh well. I like classy warriors. Intensity between the whistles gets a wide birth for me because I played the game at the collegiate level. But the passion, aggression, intensity and adrenaline fueled, energetic rage is a controlled one for most pros. That is, they turn it off when the game is over and dial it down between the whistles.

Uncontrollable anger and a demand for respect = thug in my book. Because of your post, I did check, however. He does not have a criminal record but did come from the thug streets of Compton. Still, I won't be advocating his appointment as a role model for young athletes. Sorry.

I can see that I suppose. After re-thinking it a bit, it was pretty close to the end of the game. I would give a little more if he hadn't gone after crab tree or started the choking antics that drew the flag at the end. Still, he flag should have embarrassed him into control. They also had to run over a minute off the clock. He has some time to wind down.

After the way John Elway trashed and treated Tim Tebow. I hope Seattle does the same to Peyton he has not seen a defense like Seattle’s. Plus he plays outside in the Global Warming in New Jersey. Go Hawks

This guy had just made the biggest play in the biggest game of the year, and they shove a mic in his face. I can understand his reaction. He didn’t swear or anything. He did go to Stanford and is earning his Masters. Cut him some slack.
