eh. Skip Bayless is a douche. Sherman shouldn't have gone on that rant either, but he did have some good points. How many of us can truly say we by our early mid-20s reached the top of our perspective careers. He's better at life than a lot of us career-wise at least. Pro Bowl? Check. All Pro? Check. All Pro Twice? Check. Super Bowl Ring? Check. Outside of getting a huge paycheck and cementing a place in the HOF, I don't really think there is more Sherman could do to prove that he's the top of his game as a corner. Keep in mind I do think a lot of his success drives from Earl Thomas as well, but in the end that's just nit picking. Much in the same when people bring up the Montana-Jerry Rice thing, that's also just nit picking.
As for Sherman being Dennis Rodman. From an entertainment standpoint, I can see it. That also being said, Dennis Rodman had a very large fan base as well, so that doesn't help the whole "everyone hates Sherman outside of Seattle" perspective.
Montana won 2 superbowls with 2 superbowl MVP trophies before Rice was even drafted!!
People who say Montana needed Rice are idiots.
As for Sherman and Thomas, it's a different analogy. They both got drafted around the same time, has played on the same team so far.
Football didn't start for these guys until 2010. Forgive them.
Actually I was a Rams fan in the late 60s and into the 90s... The Seahawks arrived in '76 and when the Rams moved to StL I could officially divorce them and fully commit to being a Seahawks fan, having moved to PNW in 1991... So way before 2010
In fact if you remember the Hawks were in SB XL in '05 and should have won it as everyone knows if not for the refs combined with not playing their best game...
So having been a Rams fan when I was younger and then a Seahawks fan the last 20+ yrs... I have never
liked the Niners... that said, Montana is the greatest QB to ever play the game.. as for Rice.. we all know what he is... I even have their autos on a SB XXIII program
