Pete Carroll and Bobby Wagner expect Seahawks fans to give 49ers’ Richard Sherman a warm welcome

Nov 28, 2018 at 2:12 PM--


Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will be returning to CenturyLink Field for the first time since joining the division rival San Francisco 49ers. During his time playing in front of the 12th Man, Sherman has been a three-time first-team All-Pro, a four-time Pro Bowl selection, and helped Seattle hoist a Lombardi.

What will the fans' reception for Sherman be like when he takes the field on Sunday afternoon wearing red and gold rather than navy and green?

"They'll be great," head coach Pete Carroll told Seattle-area media on Wednesday. "I think he's loved around here for all the great stuff that he did. I don't know that it's going to be noticeable what the reception is like but if it's noticeable, then pretty significant.

"He did a lot of great stuff here. I don't think our fans think any differently than I do about that."

Former teammate and All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner feels Sherman deserves an enthusiastic reception from fans.

"He should be received with the loudest cheer that they could possibly cheer, and the warmest of welcomes," Wagner said. "It's not like he said, 'I hate this team. I want to leave.' It was the business side of everything.

"I would be surprised if anybody booed him. I think he deserves the applause. He was a part of the team that helped bring the city it's first football championship. I wouldn't expect anything other than respect. Even the way he went out, he went out with a lot of class. That's who he is as a person.

"I would be surprised if they booed him. If they do boo him, then they weren't a Richard Sherman fan in the first place."

49ers-Cowboys: Kyle Shanahan brings up old rivalry to give players a spark

By Kirk Larrabee
Jan 16

Most of the players on the current San Francisco 49ers roster are too young to remember when their team had a heated and historic rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys, but 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan made sure they were aware of it before the two teams faced off in the Wild Card playoff round on Sunday. The 49ers and Cowboys met seven times in the postseason over the course of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, with one of those meetings (the 1981 NFC Championship Game) featuring the most memorable play in 49ers history (Dwight Clark's game-winning touchdown catch to help send the 49ers to their first Super Bowl). The rivalry peaked in the 90s, when the teams met in the NFC Championship game for three consecutive seasons, with the winner of each game going on to win the Super Bowl.



49ers' Deebo Samuel to Kyle Shanahan before TD run vs. Cowboys: 'Just give me the ball. I got you.'

Deebo Samuel has become a very confident player for the San Francisco 49ers. He is willing to do whatever it takes to get the football in his hands and make a play. Samuel is a wide receiver but lines up as a running back too. He led the 49ers with eight rushing touchdowns this season. Samuel had another rushing touchdown during Sunday's 23-17 playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. That one was impressive, as it involved Samuel improvising on the play and turning back inside to get into the end zone. That wasn't how the play was drawn up, by the way. How did Deebo even find this hole? 😱
