Maybe it was the Adderall. Or maybe it's just his swag. But either way, Seahawks' cornerback Richard Sherman was at it again yesterday, drawing an open-palm shove to the face from Redskins' tackle Trent Williams in the aftermath of Seattle's first-round playoff victory Sunday.
Was the face smash a good idea? Probably not. But was it called for? Knowing Sherman - a player whose running mouth seems to know no bounds - it almost surely was.
First of all, here's video of Sherman's confrontation with Williams:
Now, it's a proven fact that bravado and confidence go a long way on the football field - especially on defense, and especially in the secondary. There's no doubt Richard Sherman has swagger, and given the Seahawks' success this year, it's doubtful many fans are holding his over-the-top antics against him. After all, as long as the team continues to win, Sherman's shtick is just one more reason to pound your chest, pound a beer, and shout down a young child in an opposing team's jersey.
But somewhere out there in Hawk Land there's got to be at least one fan growing tired of Sherman's "Hey look at me, I wear a bow tie and talk a bunch of shit" routine, right?
Well, maybe not.
But just for fun, here's your chance to vote:
For the record, it seems as though Sherman and Williams have mended fences - at least according to Twitter. Sherman tweeted Sunday night: "Received a very classy text from @TrentW71. Great player! This is an emotional game no ill will either way. Have a great Pro Bowl! Well deserved"
