The NFL is a "what have you done for me lately" type of league. The Seattle Seahawks did a lot for us on Sunday night, leaving many who to overreact by calling them the Super Bowl favorites, asserting Richard Sherman as the NFL’s best cornerback, and claiming Jim Harbaugh is an idiot. But is this defense unbeatable? Better yet, is it the same on the road? Let’s take a step back and realize that the dominance was on full display against a 49ers team whose offense is riddled with receivers hardly capable of being called barnburners at this point in their respective careers, a running back at the wrong side of 30, and a quarterback who you and I shouldn’t be so sold on just yet. That’s the thing; I’m not really sold on any one team in the NFC, nor should I be. It’s a matchup game, which I’ve broken down to be this: I won’t be sold on the Seahawks until they beat a real offensive juggernaut. Their schedule doesn’t have them playing a real quarterback until Week 5 when they...

Richard Sherman, who once played under Jim Harbaugh at Stanford, gave his former coach a slap in the rear and a “good game” during the post-game of the Sunday Night Football game between the 49ers and Seahawks.  The two have bad blood now, though, after Sherman called Harbaugh a “Bully” last season.  Sherman #Seahawks said he tried to talk to his former college coach...

Richard Sherman to critics: 'Every time you doubt us you look stupid'

Richard Sherman has never been one to keep his thoughts to himself. And through two-plus NFL seasons it has served him well.

Richard Sherman Slaps Jim Harbaugh on Butt After Seahawks Beat 49ers by Wide Margin (GIF)

Jim Harbaugh used to coach Richard Sherman. So Sherman’s greeting for the San Francisco coach on Sunday night could be seen as some buddy-to-buddy communication.

Seahawks Richard Sherman dances with cheerleaders; taps Niners coach Jim Harbaugh on the butt after win

While I was personally rooting for the San Francisco 49′ers during Sunday night’s match between the Niners and the Seattle Seahawks, I have an affinity for sh*t talkers who can back it up. Naturally that means that Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman ranks high on my likes list. Sherman was a key piece in the 29-3 victory over the Seahawks NFC West rival 49ers with the biggest...

NFL Week 2 Previews, Winners and Losers

To begin Week 2 of the NFL, everyone were losers. The Jets lost to the New England Patriots 13-10, Tom Brady lost his cool with his young receivers and the fans lost because they suffered through a poor viewing of football.  The only performer of the evening that lived up to its billing was the weather as the downpour had its effect. Tons of plays were left on the field due to bad...
