Brandon SmithSeahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, also known by his self-given nickname “Optimus Prime,” is confident heading into this weekend’s matchup with the Washington Redskins.
When asked by USA TODAY Sports which of the Redskins receivers worried him, his response was simply, “none of them.” What about Pierre Garçon, who leads the Redskins with 633 receiving yards this season? “I don’t think so,” said Sherman. If he isn’t worried about Garçon, then he definitely isn’t worried about Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson, or Josh Morgan–despite the more than 1,600 yards receiving and 13 touchdowns between the three.
Sherman, who recently won his appeal hearing against the NFL’s proposed four-game suspension for violating the league’s drug policy, will be aided by the return of the other Seahawks starting cornerback, Brandon Browner, who is coming off a four-game suspension for the same offense, which he did not appeal. Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll told the Washington Post this week that getting Browner back was a “big deal.”
If the Redskins receivers want to prove Sherman wrong, they and Robert Griffin III are going to have to get the better of the league’s top-ranked scoring defense that also ranks sixth in passing yards allowed. The Seahawks and Redskins are scheduled to compete for a spot in the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs this Sunday at 4:30 p.m. The winner will go on to play either the Falcons or the 49ers the following weekend.
