  •  Yeah, the hate towards Sherman was surprising. (12+ / 0-)

    Crabtree was talking trash to him the whole game. There's a picture showing Sherman at the end of the game trying to shake Crabtree's hand and say "good game" and crabtree shoved him in the face.

    Who's the bad sport now?

    Crabtree talked shit, and Sherman proved to be the better player.

    Thanks for writing this, although I suspect it might not be too popular here. In his interviews after that he was fine.

    Sherman has nothing to apologize for, and I'm curious to see how he does against Manning at quarterback. What will the haters say if Sherman picks one off of Peyton Manning?

    This Browns fan says Go Seahawks.

    Shear is a very brittle failure mode. Other modes of material failure include warning signs like bowing or cracking. But Failure in Shear often occurs catastrophically, without warning.

      Won't say one word if he intercepts Manning.  His high skill level was never in question.  It's his inability to show any grace or humility that is.

      The fact that his 'haters' won't say anything is a noticeable difference between those that disapprove of his 'brashness' and Richard.

      •  I'm interested to hear what the haters will say. (0+ / 0-)

        We'll see in a couple weeks if you're right. After 2 weeks of super bowl hype with this in the headlines, I think it will still be fresh in their minds.

    •  Which one of them drew a flag? (0+ / 0-)

      Do you recall that between breaking up the pass and giving the infamous sideline interview, one of the two players (Sherman, not Crabtree) was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct? Not by racist bloggers, but by NFL referees.

      That's why Seattle had to run out the clock at their own 10.

      "Good game," and a handshake, indeed. I'm sure that's exactly how it went down.

      •  it did, he was mic'd and it's been released (0+ / 0-)

        Sherman drew the flag for giving the choking motion to Kaepernick, not for what happened with Crabtree.

        And he did that because he was offended that Kaepernick avoided throwing near him for the whole game and then tried to throw the winning touchdown right past him.
