Agreed. Sherman is a very talented safety but he's so hyped up I don't know why the NFL doesn't test him regularly. He's one of the many who had an Adderall problem. The team has more players with drug related issues than any other team. I also find the noise during a game an unfair advantage. Again, why doesn't the NFL do some digging? When an opposing team literally can not hear their QB's call...borderline cheating. Def an unfair advantage.

Gs1, please don't repost what others say.  Sit there and watch the games.  The DB's have thru 5 yards to have hands on the receiver to disrupt their routes.  If you watch, you will see that they stop after 5 and run with the receivers.  If they hold they get flagged, and our number one DB to get flagged over the past two years is now on the Patriots.  They work hard with their DB coach to master their foot work and they work hard in the video room to learn the tendencies of the receivers so when they see a receiver do a specific thing, they know it means they are going on a specific route and they determine what disruption they will throw at the receiver.  These guys are smart and work their butts off during the week to better understand their opponent.

Peter it's not physical football it's cheating football. Its not about incidental contact and jamming hard at the line, its about their blatant holding and pass interference.The rules have been in the books for decades. You can't cheat and call it physical.

@PlumbA I don't like Seattle, but there is more to them than the loud fans that are in attendance. Not considering post-season, nobody has to play in Seattle more than once yet Seattle went 13-3 last year. Further, NFL teams are supposed to be professional so they should be able to find a way to overcome a bunch of loud-mouth fans. Bottom-line, if teams want to shut Sherman and Seahawks' fans up, then they have have to make plays and win.

@PlumbA sherman's not a safety he's a cornerback.  but besides your obvious lack of knowledge understand that sherman tested positive one time for adderall and it was found that the specimen collected had been compromised.  adderall is not a banned substance and many players take it however you need a prescription for it which, to be fair, sherman did not have but again his appeal was upheld so no matter what you think he was never found to have done anything wrong.


and please quit whining about the noise in century link, every team knows what to expect and they cant handle good fans thats it.  It not cheating, that would be taping someones practices lol.  Its part of the game, i mean
in san francisco whiners territory they had to send out fliers about when to cheer and when not to lol.  come on, maybe it should be considered cheating if you have to coach your fans on how to be fans.  i wont call it cheating though, its just pathetic.

@PlumbA Sounds like your team (9ers, obvious even after you deny it) needs some help from Mamma NFL.  Grow a pair.  Your team needs to compete and your fan base needs to compete.  Damn, you should be ashamed of yourself.  I almost feel sorry for what Seattle is about to do to this league, and when they do, I expect you to keep hating them, but somewhere tickling the back of your ancient conscious (the one you had before modern civilization broke you down) you'll respect them as we respect the great teams of other decades.

@Gs1 maybe you would like to watch flag football if physical football is cheating lol.

@Gs1 You got it backwards.  If your team gets out-physicaled by a superior team like the Seahawks, don't turn around and call it cheating.  Call your mom if you need a hug.
