Sherman Quotes....I love this dude, and his attitude
-"A couple of times [opposing] receivers have told me, 'Great coverage' during a play," Sherman says. "As a competitor, you're kind of pissed off. Like, 'Don't tell me great coverage; keep running your route.' Of course it's great coverage. I'm supposed to have great coverage! But you're supposed to still be competing for the ball."
-"A lot of coaches have come up to me and liked the way I played," he says. "They tell me I should've gotten picked higher and they don't know how they passed me up. But it doesn't help, because they did pass me up."
-"I'll go say something to the quarterback," Sherman explains. "I'm like, 'Hey man, I'm over here. Don't be scared to throw it my way from time to time. I'm just your friendly neighborhood cornerback.' And then they'll throw it up. You've got to find a button, and push it.
-"That happened in the [Oct. 7] Carolina game, right after halftime. Just coincidentally Cam [Newton] and I were crossing paths and I was like, 'Hey — hey [No.] 1.' He turned around and said, 'Wassup?' I said, 'Don't be afraid to throw me the ball. I'm probably gonna pick you off, though.' His [first play], he threw it up, a 'go' route. That's the one I batted away from Steve Smith. I mistimed my jump. I should've picked it."
-"Everybody has a little swagger," Sherman says, "a little cockiness that says, 'OK, you challenge me — fine. I'm gonna challenge you back.' You've just got to figure out what this is, what it takes to get 'em to throw at you.
-"It worked with Tom Brady. I wasn't getting very many balls that game. I just kept, constantly, saying, 'I'm over here. I'm out here. You're not throwing it to the edge very much.' And there was a play I was lined up in the slot, we were in man coverage with [Deion] Branch, and he threw it up, and I picked it. I almost got another one he threw to [Wes] Welker.
