Richard Sherman Says He Doesn't 'Really Have a Relationship' With Russell Wilson

03 December 2018

The San Francisco 49ers will look to end a long losing streak in Seattle when they visit the Seahawks in Week 13.

But they took it to a whole new level Sunday when they channeled their inner Richard Sherman, who's now with the 49ers, by doing this after Tyler Lockett's 52-yard TD reception against Sherman's new team.

Six of those seasons included playing alongside Wilson - who has been the team's starting quarterback since his rookie season in 2012 - which included a Super Bowl championship in 2013, back-to-back NFC Championships in 2013 and 2014 and three NFC West Division titles in 2013, 2014 and 2016.

After Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin scored on a one-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter of Sunday's contest against the 49ers, his teammate David Moore was caught nonchalantly practicing the "Macarena" dance while seated next to him on the bench.

Wilson, however, was much more complimentary of his former teammate, claiming Sherman was "as good as it gets at corner" and said he has a lot of respect for him and the way he plays the game.

Coach Pete Carroll wasn't joking when he stated after the game that throwing three touchdowns in only six pass attempts is "rare". "I told him, if I was slow, what does that say about his team?" Projections from ESPN's Football Power Index gave the Seahawks a 78.3 percent chance to make the playoffs heading into this game, good for the fifth-best mark in the NFC, right behind the 7-5 Dallas Cowboys at 80.4 percent. It was a concern born out of the last-minute Super Bowl XXIX loss to the Patriots in 2017 and led to the rapid dismantling of the Seahawks' vaunted defense. San Francisco never truly got close enough to put the game in doubt, but Mullens amassed over 300 passing yards in the second half in large part due to Seattle's inability to bring receivers down after the catch.

After the game, Pettis spoke about Shanahan's expectations of him.

One of Wilson's two TDs to Jaron Brown came on a scramble play in which Sherman was in the area. But at the same time Baldwin and Lockett would love nothing more than to get in the end zone and bust out one of their epic touchdown celebrations in front of Sherman. That's something Wilson excels at, but Sherman didn't seem too anxious about dealing with that this week. "I think he threw for like 160 or 170 ..."

However, Sherman's return to Seattle seemed like a happy occasion.

The Seahawks have won 10 out of the past 11 meetings against the 49ers, including the last nine in a row.

He says today's fight will be between Tyson Fury who is the boxer and Deontay Wilder who is the banger. The incredible fight ended up being scored a draw (115-111 Wilder, 114-110 Fury, 113-113).

This game was another display of the Seahawks' late-season resurgence.

"Absolutely", Baldwin said when asked if he thinks Sunday's win could be the beginning of another strong finish. If the 49ers can survive the first half and keep the game within one score, then they will have a shot to pull off the upset.

"We're putting together the right formula for us to make a push here", Carroll said.

He said he looks forward to seeing some old friends and familiar faces, although quarterback Russell Wilson apparently isn't one of them.
