    Amazing that Crabtree did all that without ever being provoked!:eek: It's like nothing short of slapping Ghandi!:p

    Haha I can't speak for everyone, but I think they're both clowns, and Sherman is just the better player. And if the chance arose I wouldn't mind seeing either in a Charger uni before they call it a career, especially Sherman.

    I'm not quite as cynical as you are in regards to Sherman. I think alot of Sherman's act is contrived, but I don't think it's so much about self-promotion as it is Sherman feeding off that emotion. You see that with alot of great players. Jordan was that way. Some players thrive on confrontation. They play their best when they feel they are being doubted, slighted or disliked. So Sherman casts himself as the villain not so much to promote himself as to feed off the negative reactions he knows he'll get from opposing players and fans. He's like Emperor Palpatine, the more anger and hate is directed toward him, the stronger he becomes.

    Why do all these folks want to rein in on Sherm's parade? could it be jealousy? Hate? Envy? .. This kid loves life and does everything he can to be the best at what he's doing at the time. I'd take an all Sherm team in a heartbeat, I hope Wright is taking notes.

    Not sure if this was posted, but here's a clip of what Sherman said to Crabtree after the game (he was mic'd up).



    I was defending Sherman before, but deep down I thought he was trying to troll Crabtree and be a dick at the end. This video shows otherwise. I think Sherman was completely genuine in just trying to say "good game" to Crabtree. Maybe the timing wasn't perfect, but Crabtree shouldn't have been such a sore loser.

    Just watched this on SoundFX and Crabtree was showing his diva side. Surprisingly, Sherman didn't do that much talking during the game. I thought we were going to hear more than what we did. NFL Turning point usually shows more of the mic'd up stuff and that airs tomorrow. Guess we'll see if there was more/less out of Sherman during the game.

    It's a great line, but I liked it better when Lincoln said it.

    So the evidence shows Crabtree is an ***. Where's the proof of Sherman's **** talking to provoke him?
