Good morning, 12th Man.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today, Wednesday, September 18, about your Seattle Seahawks:
Cornerback Richard Sherman has been named NFC Defensive Player of Week 2 for his lock-down performance Sunday night in the Seahawks 29-3 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Sherman recorded an interception of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and registered two total tackles while blanketing San Francisco wideout Anquan Boldin most of the night, holding him to just one catch for seven yards. Sherman last earned NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors in a game against the New York Jets last November, making him the only player to earn the honor twice in that span.
Sticking with Sherman, he has his latest column up on TheMMQB.com, sharing his and the team's mentality heading into and coming out of big games, "No matter who we play, we remember two things: the final score, and whether we met our goals."
