49ers’ Richard Sherman addresses anger surrounding mid-field turkey meal in 2014: ‘Maybe the score should have pissed you off’

Nov 8, 2019 at 2:49 PM--

If you want to anger a Niners fan, show him or her the video (watch here) of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and then-Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman eating turkey during a mid-field postgame interview at Levi's Stadium in 2014.

Sherman is now with the San Francisco 49ers, who have an important divisional showdown with the cornerback's former team on Monday night. A reporter asked Sherman what he remembers about that night.

"I remember I dropped a pick I should have had because that would have been my first three-pick game, so I was upset about that," Sherman responded. "Then I got Player of the Game, and they let us eat turkey."

Joe Staley remembers that game vividly. The reporter had asked the veteran tackle about that night and told Sherman that Staley was more ticked off by the meal on the 50-yard line than the score of the game.

"Maybe that was the problem that year," Sherman said while smiling. "Maybe the score should have pissed you off, and I wouldn't have been eating turkey leg out there. Because if we had lost, they would have been eating turkey on the field."

Maybe San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is just really unlucky. Or perhaps he is very lucky by defying the odds. I suppose it depends on your perspective. The NFL says a jointly appointed independent administrator uses a computer program to randomly select players before each game to undergo PED testing. Samuel continues to wonder how "random" the selection process is. The second-year receiver has appeared in four games this season and says he has now been "randomly" selected to undergo PED testing a total of six times. Here is his most recent tweet on the

Starting next week, there will be many eyes on practice reports searching for information on several San Francisco 49ers players' statuses. Head coach Kyle Shanahan sounds optimistic that reinforcements for his injury-ravaged roster are on the way. Cornerback Richard Sherman (calf), wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring), and running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) all have a good chance of returning to the lineup after the bye week, in time for the team's Week 12 road matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Shanahan also hopes it will be in time, and enough of a boost, for his 49ers to go on a bit of a run through the final six regular-season games.
