Richard Sherman sounds off on Seahawks release

Richard Sherman sounds off on Seahawks release”

"That's football and that's kind of the way things have gone this season". "But they did, so you have to roll with the business".

Sunday will be Sherman's first matchup against his former team with the second coming two weeks later at San Francisco.

He said he looks forward to seeing some old friends and familiar faces, although quarterback Russell Wilson apparently isn't one of them.

The real intrigue is going to be on the field once the game starts when you'll see Sherman going up against Doug Baldwin or potentially Tyler Lockett. "We were teammates, and we played during a very special time for the (Seahawks) franchise".

Sherman's comments came moments after critiquing his former teammate's erratic play when a reporter asked if he knew what Wilson was capable of in terms of making plays while scrambling out of the pocket. "You understand he can be defended and you go out there and give it your best shot". He doesn't throw for as many yards as other guys in the league, and that's more a reflection of the structure of Seattle's offense than it is a reflection of Wilson's skill level.

Poetically, the receivers pulled this celebration off in the same spot where Sherman and Smith connected nearly five years earlier.

"It was just a regular game", Sherman said. After the Seahawks scored the game's opening touchdown - a four-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson to Jaron Brown in the first quarter - the Seahawks re-enacted Sherman's tip of Colin Kaepernick's pass in the 2013 NFC Championship game. Obviously, Nick (Mullens) threw for 400 (yards) today. "It's just unfortunate that we didn't play as well as we could have".

"Once it's all said and done and everybody who is playing is done playing, people will be more disappointed of what could have been with such a talented group of players", Sherman said.

Like Goodwin, Garcon has also been available for eight games this year, posting 24 receptions for 286 yards and one touchdown. "I was telling him if I'm slow, what does that say about your team?" Thus, it will be interesting to see how San Francisco's responds if Seattle can put up some points in the board early in an effort to try and break the game open.

"The way he works, you'd think he's just trying to make the team", Staley said.
