How does it feel to be in agreement with Rush Limbaugh?
Richard Sherman is a Smart Guy
I tell you, my e-mail lit up. I guess a lot of people's did, with reaction to Richard Sherman, the postgame interview with Erin Andrews, after the 49ers-Seahawks game.
Frankly, folks, I'm surprised we don't get more postgame interviews like this, when the adrenaline is still pumping and the emotions are still raw. These people are playing for the championship of the National Football League. The NFC conference, go to the Super Bowl. This is huge stuff. This is their life. They're all wound up.
Richard Sherman is a really smart guy. Richard Sherman's been writing a column once a week for a new website called Monday Morning Quarterback, which is the website Peter King, Sports Illustrated, started on his own. When his deal with Sports Illustrated was expanded they gave him his own website.
I'm convinced that if people got to know Sherman they'd like him, based on the ability you have to get to know him. He came out of Compton, California, solid family despite that place being just an infested slum.
By the way, he taunted Crabtree. You know, you cannot make the choking gesture. You can't grab your neck and emulate choking yourself. It's a 15 yard-penalty. He did that while talking to Crabtree after the play. There's a history between the two. Anyway, Sherman's made himself the story. The only thing I want to say about it is, I'm not condoning it -- and I don't want to overdo this.
