Seahawks Sherman could be Defensive MVP

Richard Sherman was irked last week when Giants QB Eli Manning said he was going to try to take advantage of Seattle’s “over-aggressive” secondary.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman intercepted two passes in the first half Sunday to raise his season total to six and tie Giants S Antrel Rolle for the top mark in the NFL. Sherman might have earned more acclaim in the fourth quarter for leaping out of the end zone to tip another bad idea from Eli Manning to S Earl Thomas, who secured Seattle’s fifth interception of the game.

Per NFL.com, Sherman is a frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year. What else is the national media saying about the Seahawks?

    I’m somewhat surprised at how often teams throw to Richard, considering his reputation and that it’s pretty well accepted he can more than walk the walk as well as talk the talk. When Kenny Easely won Defensive Player of the Year NO ONE ever threw in his general direction. Granted Richard hasn’t won the award yet but he’s blatantly the best lockdown CB in the league. But I suppose the entire Legion of Boom (the weed jokes are getting old now; hey they can play) is hard to throw against. When Maxwell is coming up with 2 INT’s and Lane gets six solo tackles they might as well give the entire secondary the award.

    Heck, just give it to the entire defense. They’ve been that good this season.
