Seattle CB Sherman takes shot at 49ers' Boldin


San Francisco snapped a two-game losing streak to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday with their close, 19-17 victory at Candlestick Park.

Rather than just move on from the game, some players have chosen to fuel the growing rivalry with some heated post game commentary.  As you may have guessed, ever-quotable Seattle corner Richard Sherman has been right in the middle of all of that.

As has been reported by several outlets, Sherman blamed the referees for the loss, and had a few other eye opening tidbits for public consumption.

We didn’t project it to be this way,” Sherman said. “We expected to blow them out, but they got the benefit of a few calls throughout the game and that helps you especially on third down. We will see them again, and it’ll be a different result.”

Sherman and 49ers’ wide receiver Anquan Boldin got in each other’s faces a few times during the game, and the Seattle corner was ready with an explanation for that as well, according to Casey Pratt at CSN Bay Area.

“When it’s so rare that you catch a ball, you’ve got to celebrate it,” Sherman said.

Boldin had a game-high 6 receptions for 93 yards and has 67 receptions on the season, more than any receiver on the Seahawks.

Not sure where Sherman was going with that one — perhaps he was joking?

    Sherman is a jive punk!

    He’s a thug with ghetto mentality.

      Listen kiddo, you have a double digit IQ so you should stop trying to troll. It is well known that Sherman would be the LAST guy in the NFL with a “ghetto mentality” so save your racism. He graduated from Stanford, majoring in communications. No one with a “ghetto mentality” will ever do that.
      But keep waiting for someone to do that to Sherman. You are in for a LONG wait….

    Boldin is a thug – Love him if he’s on your team – Hate him if he’s not . Got to love Sherman though for he backs up his squak with play on the field – PLUS he was right on about the refs , every time Seattle started to get going the refs flagged them for some VERY questionable calls- Plus called holding on the Hawks several times when the niners were (O-line) holding ALL day and stopped some sacks with blatant holds that weren’t called !!!!!!!
