Richard Sherman has not allowed a catch since Week 11


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has not allowed a catch in the last three games, reports the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. San Francisco, Arizona and Philly only threw Sherman's way eight times in that span, and he intercepted two passes and broke up another.

Eagles coach Chip Kelly, in his postgame press conference, called Sherman's the league's best corner and noted he has 23 interceptions since 2011 -- eight more than anyone else.

For the season, Sherman has 45 tackles, three picks and a forced fumble. He'll face the 49ers again in Week 15.


Seahawks CB Richard Sherman notches two INTs vs. 49ers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman picked off two passes to help spearhead a dominant performance by the Seahawks defense in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.

The Seahawks were relentless against the 49ers offense on Thanksgiving, holding the opposition to only 164 total yards on offense and just 3.2 yards per play. Sherman's first interception came on a misfired 20-yard pass from San Francisco's 30-yard line that made it appear the Seattle cornerback was the intended target. His second pick came on one of San Francisco's few trips into Seattle territory as Colin Kaepernick appeared to lose the cornerback in coverage and threw another pass directly to the defender.

The Seahawks defense managed a total of four sacks and three turnovers in the win. They'll look to keep rolling in Week 14 against the Eagles.


Seahawks won't rule out idea of using Richard Sherman at WR


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told KIRO Radio 97.3 FM on Friday that he's open to the idea of using cornerback Richard Sherman at wide receiver in emergency scenarios, MyNorthwest.com reports.

"He's been very clear in that intent for a long time around here," Carroll said. "It's always been a conversation that we've had, and if I need him I'm going to him and he knows that."

Sherman was Stanford's leading receiver as a freshman and a sophomore before transitioning into a corner. He came down with 73 receptions for 1,232 yards seven touchdowns in those two seasons at Stanford.

The Seahawks traded away Percy Harvin, one of their only playmakers at wide receiver. The team is currently ranked 30th in the league with 191.8 yards per contest, having failed to surpass the 200-yard mark in each of the previous four games.

Panthers ready for challenge of facing Seahawks' Richard Sherman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Panthers quarterback Cam Newton said he won't be afraid to throw against Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in Week 8. However, he knows he has to be careful when he challenges one of the league's best cornerbacks.

"If the play is called for me to read it to Richard’s side, by all means I’m going to do it," Newton said, per ESPN. "And I’m going to give each and every receiver an opportunity to make plays.  I’m not going to force it. I’m not going to be an idiot. I’m going to do a great job of protecting the football and be aggressively patient in taking what the defense gives me."

Sherman will likely draw rookie receiver Kelvin Benjamin for most of the afternoon Sunday. Benjamin is ready for the challenge.

"You can tell he loves the game," Benjamin said. "He brings the passion to it. He has fun. He talks a lot of smack out there, but this is football. I’m just going to come out there and match his intensity; play fast and be sound in all my assignments."


Cowboys will not be afraid to test Seahawks CB Richard Sherman


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Dallas will not be afraid to test Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman during its Week 6 matchup with Seattle, especially when Sherman is covering star wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Opposing teams have completed just 7 of 15 passes for 154 yards and one touchdown against Sherman in 2014.

"If you go into that game with these guys, you wouldn’t really snap the ball," Garrett said of shying away from Sherman, per ESPN. "They have good players outside, they have good linebackers, they have good rushers, the free safety is fantastic. We have to go play. We have a healthy respect for their team -- all you have to do is put in the tape -- but we have to do what we do."


Richard Sherman 'still the raggedy dog'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/7/2014) Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said his $57 million contract extension won't change the way he approaches the game. He still has a chip on his shoulder from being drafted in the fifth round, after 23 other defensive backs, reports The News Tribune.

"I’m still the guy scrapping for a spot," Sherman said. "You never lose that mentality. You can take a ragged dog that’s been on the streets for 10 years and put him in a new house with steak, lobster every night and he’s still the raggedy dog you got off the street.

"I’m still the raggedy dog off the street. That mentality isn’t something I could change, I don’t think, even if I wanted to. Even if wanted to be, ‘Yeah, I’m a millionaire.’ I can’t do it. It’s not a switch that I have. I’ve been in this mentality. I don’t know anything else. This is how I’m going to be until I hang the cleats up. Then, I might try to eat caviar and drink wine, or whatever they do."

Colin Kaepernick has harsh words for Richard Sherman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/31/2014) Usually reserved 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick came out of his shell Friday to finally answer the criticism of teammate and wide receiver Michael Crabtree by Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman after the Seattle win in the NFC title game.

Kaepernick also spoke about the throat-slash gesture he received from Sherman following an interception off a Sherman tip of a pass meant for Crabtree that clinched defeat.

"It was a ridiculous statement," Kaepernick told the Sacramento Bee about Sherman calling Crabtree an average receiver. "Crabtree's one of the best receivers in the league, in my opinion. ... To me, to have someone try to call him out that way is absurd."

As for the choke sign, Kaepernick asked Sherman, "Did that make you feel better about yourself? Then go ahead. Because I'm not worried about you."

Kaepernick also had a few thoughts on Sherman's post-game comments. "His comments were ridiculous. If you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?" 


Peyton Manning: I do throw ducks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Sherman called Manning the smartest quarterback in the NFL and praised his passes as accurate and on time. But he added what seemed like an insult to anyone but Manning.

"I believe it's true as well," Manning told the Denver Post. "I'd say he's a smart player. I don't think it's a real reach what he's saying there. I do throw ducks. I've thrown a lot of yards and touchdowns ducks so I'm actually quite proud of it."


Peyton Manning: I won't avoid Richard Sherman


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"On the teams I played on, I've always had some real good receivers, and we felt like we had to try to get them the ball," Manning told Pro Football Talk. "That was the best way for us to win. This team is no different."

Sherman is likely to cover Demaryius Thomas, though the Broncos also boast three other explosive pass-catchers in Wes Welker, Eric Decker and tight end Julius Thomas.

"I definitely think he's top five," Sherman said, per NFL.com. "He put together the type of year and done everything in his power to put himself in that conversation. He's made big catches, he's got a lot of run after the catches, he turns some small plays into huge plays, and I think that he's a great receiver. He's a great competitor, and I'm sure it's going to be a fun night for both of us because we're both intense competitors and good players."
