Richard Sherman Slams the NFL for Staying with Thursday Night Games: “Poopfest, It’s Terrible”

Richard Sherman

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman blasted the NFL on Tuesday for continuing to schedule Thursday night games, Sheil Kapadia of reports.

“Poopfest. It’s terrible,” Sherman said. “We got home like 1 o’clock in the morning, something like that on Monday and then you’ve got to play again. Congratulations, NFL, you did it again. But they’ve been doing it all season, so I guess we’re the last ones to get the middle finger.”

The Seahawks visited the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. They host the Los Angeles Rams at home on Thursday.

Sherman said his body will likely be only 50 to 60 percent recovered by the time the Seahawks have to play again.

He has taken the league to task on a number of things this season, but he said Thursday night games are among the top five issues he has with the NFL.

“Because it’s just no regard,” Sherman said. “It’s hypocritical, as I’ve stated before. They make this huge stance about player safety. Then you put the players in tremendous danger.

What if the Seahawks Logo Was Made in the Likeness of President Elect Donald Trump?

Donald Trump

Like it or not, next month Donald Trump will be the new President of the United States, and one thing that can’t be denied is it’s going to be an interesting four years in our country.

There’s been plenty of fun poked at the President elect, and one site – Uproxx, has taken it upon themselves to design every NFL logo in the make of our President elect.

Check out what they think the logo of the Seahawks will look like made in the likeness of Trump!


Seahawks Stuffed by Buccaneers; Fall in Tampa 14-5

Seattle Seahawks v Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jameis Winston threw a pair of touchdown passes to Mike Evans and Tampa Bay’s rejuvenated defense shut down Russell Wilson and Seattle’s sputtering offense to beat the first-place Seahawks 14-5 on Sunday.

Evans scored on receptions of 3 and 23 yards in the opening quarter, a grieving Alterraun Verner had one of two interceptions off Wilson, and the Bucs sacked the Seattle quarterback six times.

The Bucs (6-5) have won three straight to climb back into contention for a playoff berth. In addition to stopping Seattle’s three-game winning streak, they remained one game behind first-place Atlanta in the NFC South.

Playing two days after the death of his father, Verner picked off Wilson to stop a promising drive in the final minute of the opening half. The reserve cornerback was embraced on the sideline by teammates, who continued to play inspired defense in the second half.

Seahawks Safety Earl Thomas to Miss First Game of NFL Career Sunday

Earl Thomas

Seahawks safety Earl Thomas will miss the first game of his NFL career when the Seahawks play the Buccaneers this Sunday, Jayson Jenks of the Seattle Times reports.

Thomas, who was ruled out on Friday with a hamstring injury, has played in 106 consecutive games since entering the league in 2010. Including post-season games Thomas has 118 consecutive starts.

Thomas suffered a first-degree hamstring strain against the Eagles last week. When Thomas left the game last week, the Seahawks turned to safety Steven Terrell to replace him but Kelcie McCray has also played free safety.

The Seahawks could also be without starting center Justin Britt and cornerback DeShawn Shead.

Seahawks Stunner: Team Waives Running Back Christine Michael

Christine Michael

The Seahawks today made a rather surprising move, as the team waived running back Christine Michael, this according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

The team dispatched Michael with starting running back Thomas Rawls ready to return from injury, but it still comes as a surprise with Michael being the teams’ leading rusher.

This season Michael started seven of the nine Hawks games, and had 117 carries, 469 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns.

The back did have his carries cut big time the last two weeks, as he ran the ball just 10 times against the Bills and Pats, scoring a touchdown in the win over Buffalo.

Sherman Says NFL Caved in Pressure to Fine Him for Hit on Bills Kicker

Richard Sherman

Seahawk cornerback Richard Sherman said Thursday he will not appeal a fine levied against him by the NFL for what was determined to be a late hit on Buffalo kicker Dan Carpenter in Seattle’s 31-25 win over the Bills Monday night, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

That doesn’t mean he agrees with it.

Sherman said he received a letter from the league informing him of the fine and said the league’s reasoning is that Sherman “hit him after the whistle.”

Sherman insists there was no whistle, despite the fact that the NFL says there was one.

Sherman said that dispute makes it meaningless to try to fight the fine.

“They made sure they made it unappealable because they said they can’t hear the whistle on the film,” Sherman said. “And they said I hit him after the whistle, which was not true. But you can’t really appeal something that is ‘he said, she said.”’
