He thinks he’ s the best cornerback in the NFL.
He probably thinks he’s the most interesting man in the world, capable of parallel parking a train, but that one’s been taken by the character in those highly entertaining Dos Equis beer commercials.
And, you know what, Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks could very well be the best cornerback in the NFL. We’ll find out this season because he’ll be under the biggest microscope a cornerback has ever been under.
And maybe he can parallel park a train? If you asked him, I bet he’d say he could.
Sherman wrote his first column for MMQB (Monday Morning Quarterback) with Peter King, an SI.com site, last week.
“I play the game the right way. I play hard. I don’t take cheap shots. I never try to hurt anybody. And I respect people who respect me. It’s pretty simple. But if you don’t respect me, or if you doubt my ability, I’m not just going to sit there and swallow it. I’ll come at you. I know there are people out there—fans and other players—who say, ‘Just shut up and play.’ But that’s not me. Never has been, never will be. I can’t make everyone out there happy.”
We’ll keep our eye on what Sherman is writing. It could turn out to be as interesting as those “most interesting man” in the world commercials.
