Found November 26, 2012 on Fox Sports:
The Seahawks' playoff chances may have taken a nosedive on Sunday, and not just because of their 24-21 loss to the Dolphins. The Seahawks are facing the loss of both starting cornerbacks, Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner, for four games apiece for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. The two physical cornerbacks, centerpieces of the Seahawks' impressive young defense, are appealing and "insist they are innocent," according to Schefter. Browner made the Pro Bowl last season, while Sherman is regarded as one of the emerging shutdown corners in the NFL. Sherman made headlines after the Seahawks' Week 6 win over the Patriots when he taunted Tom Brady via Twitter and called the Patriots' offense a "gimmick." He recently changed his Twitter name to "Optimus Prime" before facing off against Calvin "Megatron" Johnson and called the Lions' star receiver a "non-factor" after the game, despite a Seattle loss. Both played Sunday, combining for four tackles. As the NFC playoff picture currently stands, at 6-5 the Seahawks are in the hunt for the second NFC wildcard spot.
