Roddy White has long been considered one of the best receivers in the game, and recently CB Richard Sherman has made a name for himself as an elite cornerback. Both players are certainly respected around the league, but there may not be mutual respect among the two of them.
On Thursday, Richard Sherman was asked about the challenge of facing Roddy White, and his response was simple; “What Challenge?”.Then the media asked if the Seahawks would have more motivation for this game given what happened last season, Sherman said: “No, no. We are an 8-1 ballclub, they are a 2-6 ballclub.”
Sherman feels that they should have beaten the Falcons in January as well, when asked what that was like his response was:
“Frustration,” he said when asked his feeling as he walked off the field. “Frustration. Because we won and the score didn’t say we won. Yeah., we won. The scoreboard said differently, just like everybody thought the Bucs won last week but the scoreboard said different. Funny how that works, right?”-NFLDraftDiamonds.com
Both players are great, but the Roddy White era is slowly fading. Richard Sherman is entering his prime and although he talks a lot of trash, he certainly backs up his words.
