Cornerback Richard Sherman made the play of his career when he tipped San Francisco 49ner's quarterback Colin Kaepernick's pass that was bound for wide receiver Michael Crabtree into the hands of linebacker Malcolm Smith that sealed the win for the Seattle Seahawks
Then Sherman delivered probably the most memorable interview of 2014 to Fox Sports Reporter Erin Andrews by declaring himself, "The Best Cornerback In The League" and in the process calling Crabtree, a "sorry receiver."
The first thought that came to my mind was, 'Wow.'
Then after processing it, I came to realize that Mr. Sherman is who he is, a passionate person who was letting everyone know his true feelings.
Yeah, it came about bad and I don't think it was really professional, but what can you do.
But what really got me is the fact that some people was calling him a "thug" because of that "rant."
If Mr. Sherman was a thug, he would not have had a very high SAT score and graduated from the most prestigious schools in the nation, Stanford University.
What he really did was brought out the true racists in the country when they went to Twitter and made slurs towards him.
Of course, they don't understand that the slurs they decided to post will follow them for the rest of their lives because nothing is private anymore.
Possibly, these same people were the ones who were displaying what probably the majority in America felt.
In essence, you can call Mr. Sherman the biggest jerk in the NFL if you want to. I have.
But one thing is for certain, you can't call him a thug or the n-word because he has "proven" that anybody can succeed if you put your mind to it.
