Deion was a stud and he got love league wide. People were tying their doorags on under their cap like he was and high stepping into the end zone just like he was. Everyone wanted him on their team and there was no doubt that he was a showman and THE elite CB in this league. As for Sherman, his talk doesn't match his athleticism. Sherman is good but he is no Deion and he plays in a system and on a team that accentuates his positives greatly. For instance Deion could go to any team and any system and do what he did: shut down the entire half of the field he played on.
Deion was once asked (what type of defense were you guys in?) and he replied "the CAT defense. I got this cat, you get that cat". LOL!! Sometimes he didn't even go to the huddle for defensive calls. He would just wander over to his side of the field and lock onto his receiver with an eye on his guy and the QB while the TEAM was in the huddle and when the QB did foolishly decide to throw the ball his way he always figured that that ball was intended for him and when he picked it he took it to the house. The guy was unbelievable and was worth every penny. Sherman is not that good and I believe that he is system dependent and benefits greatly from the talent around him but he is a great player for SEA
