Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Friday, January 6 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Sherman No. 1 In Ike Taylor's CB Rankings
All through the season, former NFL cornerback Ike Taylor has been ranking CBs week-by-week based on their performances. After the conclusion of the regular season, Taylor shared his final top-10 list on NFL.com.
Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who stayed near the top as the season progressed, took home the No. 1 spot in Taylor's year-end rankings after initially starting out No. 3. Here's what Taylor had to say about Sherman's Pro Bowl season:
Season stats in coverage: allowed 44 catches on 85 targets for 624 yards, two TDs, four INTs, 64.0 passer rating against.
Sherman started out as No. 3 on this list, but his play throughout the season proved he belonged in my top spot. Stacking up this list wasn't easy because there was a lot of great play from all, but the Seahawks star was excellent in coverage and shut down top wideouts on a weekly basis. He remains the best at press coverage and disrupting timing between the quarterback and receiver. Sherman does so many things well, but the thing that sets him apart is his tackling. Without Earl Thomas, look for Sherman to lead the Seahawks' defense in the postseason.
