Season’s over, but Sherman’s mouth still going strongFebruary 21st, 2013 by cstark
Name the Seattle Seahawks player who is in the news again?
Yep, Richard Sherman.
After two years in the NFL, the all-pro cornerback has already established himself as the best trash talker to put on a Seattle uniform since The Mouth himself, Gary Payton.
Sherman’s latest target is Darrelle Revis, the Jets’ Pro Bowl cornerback. They got into a pretty entertaining war of words on Twitter Wednesday.
Mouthy athletes aren’t appealing most of the time, but there seems to be a playful side to Sherman’s banter. He likes the attention, and the thing is, he’s been able to back up his talk thus far.
I can’t wait to hear what he has to say when his contract is up, or when he asks to re-do his contract. The dude’s gonna command a pretty hefty salary at some point, and I can’t imagine him putting on a muzzle during negotiations.
Here’s some of the Twitter madness that went down between Sherman and Revis, courtesy of ESPN 710 radio:
Sherman: “one season u will get 8 picks…. But it won’t happen anytime soon… I did it in my 2nd season… So u have something to chase”
Sherman: “Got off my flight to this hilarious convo. So I have 8 picks 3 ff and a sack. My season stats looking like Revis career stats”
Sherman: “For the QB not throwing his way argument. In his 2nd year they were throwing his way. I still doubled his picks”
Revis: “That’s like you saying your better then Deion Sanders & since he’s not playing no more he’s irrelevant for what he’s done.”
Revis: “child please, lol!!! Your still taking baby steps son. Don’t get to a head of yourself.”
Revis: “Hey everyone @rsherman_25 wants to be a lockdown corner. He wants to be in the talks of a lockdown corner. So follow him so he can become 1!”
Revis: “This dude just interrupted my NBA 2k game cause he has draSms to be a lockdown corner!!! HAHA #keepdreaming”
Sherman: “Remember that time the number of twitter followers mattered more than the production on the field? Me either”
Sherman: lmao he living off reputation right now… I’m living off performance. That’s why he’s mad…
