Richard Sherman tweeted out prayers for Dwayne Harris

Some times Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman gets a bad wrap. He is perceived as arrogant and cocky at times. His antics, like taunting New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady some times take center stage when people talk about him and his attitude.

Sherman is a great player though, and a good person. When Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dwayne Harris went down following a late hit on the side line, Sherman expressed his concerns on Twitter. He sent out some prayers and encouraged Harris to get up.

So despite the taunting and other things, Sherman should also be equally commended for the positive things he does like this.

    Sherman is anything BUT arrogant and his bad rap in general is WAY undeserved. Everyone remembers him saying “You Mad Bro?” to Tom Brady but no one remembers what Tom Brady said to provoke that. Everyone remembers and moans about him tearing Skip Bayless a new one but no one remembers what Skip said about him (something along the lines of ‘He does not even belong in the same league with Darrell Revis’) that provoked much of his response to Skip. What I think is going on has a lot to do with geographical bias. When Seattle made it to the Super Bowl in 2005 I went to several forums discussing the then upcoming match between the Hawks and Steelers and overwhelmingly all I heard was “This is not even a real Super Bowl. Gimme the Cowboys or the Giants…not the Seahawks.” and even a few silly conspiracy theories that some ‘Powers behind the throne’ had conspired to put Holmgren’s team in the Super Bowl because of love or loyalty to Holmgren/Vegas bookies/etc.
    If someone says that Brady does not even belong in the same discussion as Peyton Manning or John Elway and Brady were to respond much as Sherman did, no one would bat an eye. But if a Seattle player says such, it becomes the prime example of “arrogance” or some such in the NFL.
