OT: Carrollfreude?

Submitted by YoungGeezy on February 1st, 2015 at 11:04 PM

Anyone else feel like this is karma for Pete Carroll? I can't help but still be bitter about the last couple of Rose Bowls we lost to him and he royally screwed the Trojans on the way out.

Most are calling the goal line play the worst call in the history of football, which might be hyperbole, but I can't say I feel bad for him.

Edit: Not Hyperbole. It was a horrendous call.

He's a real cocky SOB when he's winning.  Tucked his tail last night.  Not surprising coming from Pete Carroll's classless Seahawks. I can't wait for them to become irrelvant again so all the hippies out in Seattle can jump off the bandwagon and get back to not caring about sports.  "12th" man my ass.  When you say Hasselbeck to someone from Seattle, they probably think "Elizabeth" first.  Probably don't know who Shaun Alexander is since they've only been "fans" for three years.

Do you actually watch the games, or are you just buying into a narrative created by people who don't like Sherman? Brady only targeted him one time in the entire game tonight, there's a reason for that.

Exactly.  There were times that Sherman covered Gronk (and NE could have had the matchup any time they wanted it) and Brady looked that way, saw Sherman, and dumped it off to someone else.  

Sherman is in the territory where he doesn't look as good as he is because nobody even throws the ball his way anymore.  He's a prick off the field, but he's a great cornerback on the field.

Seriously? Nobody knew he was? You may not have known but folks who follow the NFL knew. Sherman was first team All NFL in 2012 and had a QB rating against of 44.9. In 2013 he had already been named to the Pro Bowl, as well as leading the league in interceptions at the time of the interview you mentioned. I think his QBR against was like 48.7 that year. Later named first team All Pro obviously. Obviously a pro bowler this year and will be 1st team All pro again. He's been the best corner in the game for the last 3 years and had been so for the 2 years prior to that interview.

Obviously Sherman is exceedingly brash and cocky but he does have the game to back it up. He's also one of the most articulate and entertaining athletes in the world and he's been on point with his criticisms of the NFL. And the NCAA too boo. And Skip Bayless.

Not speaking for the OP, but his act is just tired at this point.  He walks right up to that line between acceptable NFL behavior and being an ass, which is probably a blast for Seahawks fans but is just annoying to the rest of us.  He's a smart guy who knows how to get attention, but between screaming his head off about Crabtree, the "You Mad?" comments at Brady some years ago, the big talk when they win but not talking to reporters when they lose, all of it is just annoying to me.  And yeah, the least surprising thing was watching the Seattle D start throwing punches when the game was out of reach.

I'm getting a sense you are a Seahawks fan, so I'm not going to argue with you.  Great, Sherman came over and shook the hand of a guy who defeated his team in the SB.  That makes him absolutely as normal a person as basically every other Seahawk today.  But if you are trying to convince me that the guy who ran up to Brady yelling "you mad", who ranted about a "second-rate" receiver in Crabtree and talking about how he wants to "choke him out" every year (I'm sure in terms of coverage, but still), who wouldn't talk to the media after SD beat Seattle with a strong focus on throwing at Sherman, etc. isn't annoying or a hypocrite, you are going to be wasting a lot of time.

The only way this could be better is if it was preceded by a clip showing Sherman mocking Darrelle Revis by signalling "2 - 4" to the camera, like he did after Seattle's TD pass earlier in the game.
