Go Rams!!! Happy New Years to you guys sorry if I'm late. Oh, sorry I hadn't got my audition piece in yet I lost my father this week and it's just been busy. "Don't Get Mushy" Reading your articles & comments are my way of getting away so Thank you TST :-) Ok, time to ruffle some feathers.
We all know that Richard Sherman is what you would call a hot head but some have called him things such as a thug or worse. He seems to speak without any regards to anyone's feelings. He's arrogant, blessed and talented and he's throwing it in everyone's face and truthfully we don't care right? Wrong. Sherman is from Compton, Ca and we all have heard the story before of the athlete who makes it out of the hood, but does anyone know how truly hard that is? Like seriously,it's kinda along the lines of winning the lottery kinda tough. The everyday struggles of living in that type of environment is enough to drive someone mad, however this individual set his eyes on the prize and never looked back. That type of determination is something that I want on my football team I feel that this level of drive is what creates a motor in a player. Our Chris Long has one of the best motors I've seen since I've been watching football and they come for two totally different backgrounds. ( Not discrediting either here, I feel that CL91 works his ass off!!!). But my point is Sherman never had easy, he was a 5th round pick who was projected to be a backup CB by NFL.com Scouts. Not only did he make a name for himself by his play on the field but the confidence that he spews is letting know that regardless of where you are from or your circumstances anything is possible. He is about to play in the biggest game of his life and all eyes will be watching. He demanded attention and the entire world is about to give it to him. Let's see what he does with it. I truly feel that this is bigger that football............
Question to my Rams family?
How important is character to you in regards to a football player? We all remember the four pillars but by whose standard are the pillars set? I personally like Sherman and players of the sort but I understand why some don't. Is there any translation to that "fire" to talent?
