What they said: Richard Sherman

Here’s some of what Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman had to say today, with some video below:

On what he remembers about playing against the Cardinals in Phoenix in 2011: “Not too much. Was that my rookie year? Yeah I don’t remember a lot. I should’ve had a pick six that game, and I got freaking caught and Marshawn Lynch was on me about that the rest of the game. That’s one thing that I remember from that game, him getting on me talking about I should’ve scored.”

On why he does not talk trash about Larry Fitzgerald: “There’s not really opportunities, and it’s just one of those games where you’re too locked in to do it. It’s nothing really to talk about.”

On his respect level for Larry Fitzgerald: “There’s definitely a mutual respect. He’s a great player, he’s been a great player for a while, he’s been incredibly consistent over the years, and he’s been consistent through multiple quarterbacks, multiple systems. He should’ve won the Super Bowl for his team when they went, he played a heck of a game, and you have to respect a guy like that.”

On developing a relationship with Larry Fitzgerald and how did that get started: “Just meeting him in the offseason. I saw him in the offseason a couple of times and he was a great guy. He asked me to come out to his softball game and I did. It was a fun event, we had a great time. So I asked him to come back and reciprocate the favor, and we just had a good time. He’s a good player and a good guy.”

On what he thinks about playing on Thursday night: “I think it’s fun. I think it’s going to be a bunch of fun. You always are looking for your next opportunity on the field, win lose or draw you always want to just get back right out there and I think people would rather play than practice so shoot it’s a lot of fun for us.”

On how the Arizona offense is different from last year’s offense: “It’s not too different, it’s not crazy different. You obviously see different schemes that you would have seen in Indianapolis last year, but a lot of it is carry over. A lot of the routes Larry Fitzgerald likes to run, a lot of the ways the like to condense formations and expand and bring their receivers back underneath is similar to what they have been doing. I think they try to balance it out with a good running game, and they have two good running backs who’ve been running pretty hard so they have just been trying to balance it out a little more this year.”
