49ers CB Richard Sherman came back to Seattle on Sunday. While Sherman and the 49ers were routed by the Seahawks 43-16, his former teammates showed Sherman some love.
Let’s rewind to the 2013 NFC title game between the 49ers and Seahawks. With the 49ers trailing 23-17 and driving late in the 4th quarter, San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick threw a pass intended for Michael Crabtree that was tipped by Sherman and intercepted by Malcolm Smith to the send the Seahawks to the Super Bowl in a play that would later be called: “The Swat Heard Around the World.”
Today, after a Jaron Brown TD, the Seahawks reenacted that famous play:
That is pretty cool!!
Seahawks’ coach Pete Carroll talked about the possibility of moving star corner Richard Sherman today. Sherman, 28, is still one of the elite corners in the NFL. Either the Seahawks are tired of him, or maybe they feel he is on the decline.
Here is what Carroll had to say about Sherman at the league meetings:
“You’re either competing or you’re not. And so we’ve always had to be open for everything, every suggestion that comes along. “There have been some teams that have called, and so we’ve talked about it. But he’s extremely important to our football team.
“I don’t see anything happening at all. And I don’t see anything happening with any other players, just the banter that’s out there right now. But it has been talked about. He’s a great player and can impact another team. I can see why people would be interested in him.”
I would be stunned if Sherman is moved!
