Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman went on a rant after the NFC Championship game. It has gotten a lot of different responses, Sherman’s former Stanford teammate Michael Thomas, who played for the Miami Dolphins in 2013, wasn’t surprised.
“That’s Sherm,” Thomas told FOXSports.com on Monday. “That’s how he acts. I wasn’t surprised. I wasn’t surprised one bit. He talks before the game and if he has success and his team wins, he feels he has the right to say whatever he wants because he put up the performance that he wanted to. I wasn’t surprised one bit.
“That persona he takes on is just him. His game in that way as far as he does the interviews is tailored after Muhammad Ali and Deion Sanders or any other great athlete who would talk noise and then back it up. That’s what he wants to do. He talks noise to put pressure on himself to play well so when he does he continues to talk. And that’s exactly what he does.”
