Good lord, the Richard Sherman redemption campaign is still in full force...
He didn't fucking rape a puppy on live tv, he just gave an emotional interview. There's nothing for him to redeem himself from.

Although he certainly put the stakes high for himself not to look like an idiot tonight...
He demeaned his opponent both in the interview on the field, then in the post game. He's a punk and he'll get his.

Tell that to the NFL, I didn't make them air yet another package of how he works with disabled kids and graduated from Stanford.

I read a remarkable statistic the other day. In Russell Wilson's two years in the NFL, Seattle hasn't lost a single game by more than 7 points. Meanwhile, the last time Peyton Manning and the Broncos lost by more than 7 was a 10 point loss to New England in Week 5 of the 2012 season. If either team loses by more than a touchdown tomorrow, it'll be a rare event.
Not really as remarkable as you think. More 'small sample size' than anything else. If you go, on average, 13-3 or 12-4 every year, how many opportunities do you HAVE to lose by more than 7? Lose a couple close games, and you can drag that stat back quite a ways.

Did a 2-second search of the Patriots scores, just as a reference point for another winning team. Last time they lost by more than 7 in the regular season was October of 2011, lost by 8. November of 2010 was the last legit beatdown, lost by 20 to the Browns.

There WERE the AFC title game in 2012 and 2013, (28-13 and 26-16), but the point is that it's rare right until it's not. And with small sample size, you can draw lots of bad conclusions. And in your final game of the year, someone's gonna lose, so guarantees another shot for someone to lose by more than 7.

Hell, the stats show that each team wins about 85% of their games every year, including playoffs. Regardless, someone's gonna lose
Counting both regular season and playoffs, Denver and Seattle are the only teams not to lose by at least 7 points this year (so far). And Seattle's the only team not to do the same last year. Seattle's lost nine games in that two year span, and all of those losses have been 7 points or less. So yes, I'd call that impressive.

So do you hold Aaron Hernandez and Rae Carruth in higher regard than Richard Sherman?

Who the hell said anything about that?

Why should I judge one player based on another?

He did exactly what I said. No denying it, unless you're trying to defend something else.

Sorry to stir the pot there, I was laughing at the unctuous nature of the piece more than trying to attack or defend Sherman. The jingoistic one they just aired really takes the cake.

Well, I agree, that pregame broadcast is one of the more ridiculous things I've seen in a while, and I usually find American displays of patriotism amusing.

eta: I do like the ads though - pretending like people buy those garish trucks to pull a tractor or something (that was literally in one of the ads, Ram I think )

Glad I'm not watching it. I'll turn the game on @ 6:30.

I wasn't sure how an opera signer would fare, but she did great!

So, should Denver just have let Seattle take the ball in for a touchdown rather than the 2 points and a free kick?

For sure. They haven't seen a defense this fast all year.
