alternate headline: man does job
and some of the backdrop to the Seattle cornerback's post-game comments yesterday:
I don't think that Sherman came off well in the event. But--apropos of the thuggery accusations--it's interesting to see that he reportedly refused to be drawn into a fight with Crabtree and (apparently) settled the issue on the field. If all is as alleged, I can see why he might have felt a little wild in the aftermath.
EDIT: Just to add a little fuel to the fire, note that he has a history with Tom Brady, and his twitter comment to Crabtree:
Someone might want to point out that he DID concern himself with the "sheep;" that's what unleashed this whirlwind. At this stage his agent is probably begging him to give it a rest.
Currently a verbal commit to ND.....Per the Detroit News...
( It's not paywalled. I guess I just assumed everything on wolverinenation was)
So ESPN has these The Good, The Bad, and The Future posts about all of the position groups. The one they posted today is on the Special Teams and there is no mention of Hagerup. I used the google search function and didn't see a post regarding him not returning. Am I missing something? My understanding was that he was suspended for the 2013 season but would return for his Senior year in 2014. I think it'd be a huge boost to our special teams if he returned and Wile could just focus on kicking.
On this morning's Recruiting Roundup Sam suggested that there is a good chance that neither Jones nor Mack will be part of our 2014 class. He said that his opinion on both had changed over the weekend. Details apparently to follow on Scout.
Kind of a surprise - and not in a good way.
Personally rooting for Manning to win one more and retire a-la Elway, but I think the Seahawks' defense is unwise to pick against if the game ends up being played in inclement weather. Plus, the Seahawks have a pretty competent offense that is capable of winning games in their own right.
Prediction if snowing: Seattle 24 - Broncos 17
Prediction if just cold: Seattle 35 - Broncos 31
