Richard Sherman calls Ravens safety Earl Thomas’ comments about 49ers ‘irrelevant’

Nov 27, 2019 at 2:20 PM--

Baltimore Ravens safety Earl Thomas was asked today about his thoughts on Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers potentially being a Super Bowl preview.

"You think the 49ers are going to the Super Bowl?" Thomas responded to the asking reporter.

That's the comment that has sparked a little bit of media attention, as if Thomas doesn't see San Francisco as a potential Super Bowl contender.

"It could be," Thomas continued, however. "Let's see. We just go out there and try to play the best football we can possibly do, and when the Super Bowl comes, whoever we play, they going to be in trouble."

Perhaps trying to provide the 49ers with some added motivation or create a storyline where there really isn't one, cornerback Richard Sherman on Wednesday was asked about Thomas' comment.

"It don't make no never mind to me," Sherman responded. "I don't really worry about that. We're a 10-1 ball club. We're going to continue to do what we've done to get to where we're at. Worrying about what other people say doesn't change how we're going to go out there and play.

"We've got to go out there and execute. They're a good team, and we'll go out, and we'll let the chips fall where they may.

"This is the regular season. This isn't the playoffs, so whether you win or lose this game, nobody gets to go home. You have another game after this.

"At the end of the day, statements like that are irrelevant in the grand scheme of this. There's a long time between now and February, and we hope to take it a game at a time, and we'll see what happens."

Sherman and Thomas were teammates for seven years in Seattle. Sherman signed with the 49ers last year while Thomas joined the Ravens in March. The two will see each other on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium and, if the hype is to be believed, could see each other again in February.

Arik Armstead, on Monday, during a video conference call with reporters, was asked about his teammate, second-year defensive end Nick Bosa. The veteran has been impressed with the young defender. Everyone has. Bosa had one of the more impressive rookie campaigns we've seen from a defensive lineman and looks to be a cornerstone that the San Francisco 49ers defense will continue to build around. And we may have just scratched the surface with what we've seen from Bosa. Armstead was asked about the young pass rusher's potential ceiling. "I don't like to put ceilings on anybody," Armstead responded. "I think very highly of Nick, and I think he can do anything he wants to out there. He's extremely talented, and he works extremely hard, so the sky's the

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke to reporters back-to-back on Tuesday via a video conference call. Between the two interviews, the seat, microphone, and table where Sherman sat were thoroughly wiped and disinfected by a team staff member. It's a reminder of how different things are amid a pandemic. The 49ers, along with the 31 other NFL teams, are trying to navigate their way to the 2020 season, and do so as safely as possible. Players have until Thursday to opt-out of the season should they have concerns for their own health or the health of their families. Sherman is entering his 10th NFL season and third with the 49ers. He has a wife and young children at home. Sherman, however, never really

Bill Barnwell of ESPN went team-by-team to project potential future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees for each. How do you do that for a team like the New York Jets? Well, they do have running back Frank Gore on the roster. Barnwell lists him as "likely" to be a future inductee. What about the talent-depleted Miami Dolphins? Yeah, that one is harder. Barnwell couldn't come up with anyone who had more than a 10 percent chance to one day earn Hall of Fame honors. For the San Francisco 49ers, the decision was pretty easy. The ESPN writer lists veteran cornerback Richard Sherman as "likely" to make the Hall of Fame, which means he has between a
