Richard Sherman urges Twitter followers to not bash Peyton Manning

Richard-Sherman-SeahawksSeattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman clearly learned a lot from his postgame rants and taunting two weeks ago after the NFC Championship Game. He seemed like a completely different person following his team’s win in Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday. Rather than talking trash, Sherman took the time to praise his family, teammates, the fans, and even Peyton Manning.

Hundreds of thousands of Twitter users spent their Sunday evening ragging on Manning and creating hilarious memes to commemorate his poor performance. Sherman urged Seahawks fans to simply enjoy the win rather than taunting Peyton.

Sherman is right. Manning is one of the classiest players in the game and a future Hall of Famer. That said, the ugly showing does hurt his legacy. He threw a pick-six to end the Super Bowl four years ago and did the same on Sunday to basically eliminate any chance the Denver Broncos had of coming back. Manning is now 1-2 in the Super Bowl and 11-12 in the playoffs overall.

As for Sherman, you can tell he meant it when he apologized for taking the spotlight away from his teammates two weeks ago. He carried himself with class after winning a championship.
