NFL Week 15 Thread

Remember when the Vikes started 5-0 & were tied with New England? And people actually debated which of the two teams was better?

Welp...

Richard Sherman has a monstrous ego, but at least it wasn't too big to not apologize

He went too far, he knew it minutes after that. He did apologize and he offered to apologize in person to the reporter. 

Bigger concern for the Seahawks is that he's had a couple of blowups on the sidelines this year. That's never a good a sign but the Seahawks have been able to handle players that push the boundaries. Percy Harvin and Marshawn Lynch were given a lot of flexibility as well.

Sherman does back up the talk. He's been selected to another pro-bowl.

Sherman is a fantastic player, no doubt about that.

That was as forced an apology I've seen in a while. Sherman is a terrific player but less so of a human it appears. What a shitty thing to say to someone.

Shady,

I definitely think that someone got to Sherman the minute or two after that exchange with the reporter took place. Sherman is a cerebral, opinionated individual who rarely backs off his position. I think the P.R. guy had a chat and Sherman realized he was way off base. I think when people apologize and it's forced they usually do the minimum. Here Sherman was willing to meet the reporter and do it in person. That rarely happens when it's a forced apology.

Compare that to Sherman's position with their offensive coordinator and their differences where Sherman hasn't backed off of his position or the Michael Crabtree rant from a few years ago.

Usually Sherman is quite insightful during his press conferences. He does go after Goodell any chance he gets but backs up his thoughts.

Personally I wish the guy would just play, comment on social issues instead of these blowups that we've seen. That goes for any other NFL player as well.

Fair enough. My comment was also fuelled by a general dislike for the Seahawks. Silly

The Rams secondary should be shot. The front six controlled the line of scrimmage pretty much the entire game (Rawls 21 carries; 34 yrds), and applied a steady pass rush. Horse &*^% on third downs, thanks to the defensive backfield. It's been that way the whole season.

Pete Carrol can eat it for that fake punt at that time of the game and at that score. Ryan got knocked cold at the end of the play. He looked like one of those Family Guy poses (unconscious, lying prone on the ground, arm resting behind back)

I thought that was pretty bush league too. It's Carrol and the Seahawks though so I'm not surprised.

I think the bad blood goes both ways. This fake punt was more of a response back to what Johnny Heker did in taking a personal foul on Cliff Avril in one of the previous meetings. Fake punts and passing or running is what Hekker has done to the Seahawks in the past. The other way is just to rough up Hekker and that isn't good either.

Hey guys, no comments about the Chiefs running up the score on the Broncos with a trick play?

At least the Seahawks on the special teams were responding to Hekker's cheap shot.

I don't think I personally have an issue with teams running up scores.

As a fan I wouldn't really care either. Although I'd probably feel differently as a player on the losing team.

I think it's an open invitation for retribution, if not for later in the game, certainly in the next.
49ers hand the ball off to Guy McIntyre in a playoff game: next year Fridge Perry gets in a few runs.

It's a slap in the face, I tells ya. And players have long memories.

I don't think it was "running up the score", as much as it was just putting the nail in the coffin..

they were up by 17 prior...but you never know what could happen (I know, uncatchable with 2 minutes left to play...but still)

what about Pats smushing the Jets 41-3...no cries of running up the score there?

Chris...... there was 1:55 left in the 4th quarter and the Cheifs were UP by 17 points. That is already the definition of out of reach. Then they run a trick play.

The Chiefs had no reason to run up the score and there is nothing wrong with that but I personally would not do that.

The Seahawks go criticized for running a fake punt with 5:44 to go in the 4th. I personally would not have done that but the Seahawks have issues with Johnny Hekker the Rams punter and it was done more for that purpose than trying to run up the score.
