Seahawks Richard Sherman, Malcolm Smith on ‘Kimmel': Pete’s a ‘white-haired party animal’

Richard Sherman and Malcolm Smith’s appeared Tuesday night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and it was a fast-paced, impressive, fun performance with a lot of great quotes and a little smack talk.

Kind of like the Super Bowl if you’re a Seahawks fan.

Watch and enjoy. Outtakes are below.

Here are some of the highlights:

Sherman on how he’s being treated after the victory: “People look at you a lot different.”

Sherman on what it was like the night after Super Bowl: “A lot of celebrating. Some inebriation, some would call it.”

Smith on whether coach Pete Carroll was partying: “He’s the No. 1 guy. … white-haired party animal.”

Sherman on the post-game party scene: “You definitely see a different side of your coaches.”

Sherman, on whether Carroll can get tough after this:  “Pete’s never tough with us anyway. He’s a great guy.

Smith on decoding Peyton Manning’s hand signals: “I didn’t …”

Sherman on why Smith didn’t know: “Sometimes you’ve got to keep secrets or you’ll overwhelm everybody.”

Sherman on whether he was surprised by the reaction to his rant on national TV: “People kind of went soft on us. I think back in the day sports fans used to actually be entertained by sports, by the gritty nature and the passion. … They want us to be robots. … It’s ball. It’s not like it’s a political debate. I just cursed him out. I didn’t threaten his life or anything.”

You’ve got to love the passion and the personality Sherman and Smith showed a national TV audience, a side of the players that Seahawks fans have seen throughout the season. I’m sure it’s the first of many national TV appearance by Seahawk players in the offseason.
