Richard Sherman is out.
During last nights game against the Arizona Cardinals, the Seattle Seahawks Cornerback Richard Sherman reportedly ruptured his Achilles. He limped off the field as the team trainer followed him toward the sideline. Richard then addressed the media and he said “I thought I could get the ball. Once it popped, just unfortunate.” “One of those things that you have to play through for as long as you can. When it goes, it goes. I’ve put a lot of stress on it. Think it would have gone eventually.” Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll said this about Richard Sherman “He’s been a bastion of consistency, competitiveness, and toughness. We’re going to miss the heck out of him.”
We hate Thursday Night Football!
Many players have already been outspoken about playing Thursday Night Football. Seahawks Wide Receiver Doug Baldwin said, “Guys don’t have time to recover, hard to recover in four days.” Seahawks Linebacker Bobby Wagner also said, “We play a very physical game, a very physical sport, and to ask us to turn around and be ready after Sunday to turn around and have our bodies OK on that Thursday, it’s really tough to do.” Is this something that we as the fans and the NFL owners have to take into consideration? That Thursday Night Football isn’t the best product to put out for fans and it’s not safe for the players. Even though the Seahawks won the game it will be tough to move forward without their best corner. I wish the best of luck to the Seahawks and speedy recovery for Richard Sherman.
