Randall Liu, of NFC communications announced via Twitter that cornerback Richard Sherman is Defensive Player of the Week after his end zone interception and sack and forced fumble of Mark Sanchez were keys to the 28-7 win over the Jets on Sunday.

Sherman, in his second season,  made some mid-season All-Pro teams. He now has a team-high 4 interceptions, tied for third in the NFL.

Sherman was the only member of the Seahawks starting secondary who didn’t make it to last year’s Pro Bowl, but he’s been the most impressive of the quartet this fall.

    Way to go Optimus!

    Well deserved, indeed.

  3. There you go Sherm! Keep it up!

  4. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Shermanator!

    Big Sherm! Well done, and well deserved.

  6. My brotha, my brotha, way to ball out my brotha.
    Next up, NFC Pro Bowl starter, then AP NFL All-Pro 1st Team.
    Next level stuff.

    I don’t normally pay much attention to athletes’ tats…the behavior is somewhat annoying to me.. but one on Sherm’s left shoulder caught my eye during one of last interviews. “humble” I laughed out loud at the irony! As long as he keeps playing like he is, he can talk as much as he wants. Love my brotha. (Just don’t know how we’re going to pay all of these guys long term…)

    Can we all just pretend Richard Sherman was the first round and James Carpenter was the fifth round pick in 2011? We’d all be happy as clams at low tide with that draft if that were the case.

    Detroit got Mikel Leshoure in the second round because of some convoluted trade with Seattle. Then we took John Moffet in the third round and passed on Sam Ocho to get K.J. Wright early in the fourth and grabbed Kris Durham a little later in that round. Two picks after we took James Carpenter (OK, Richard Sherman) in the fifth we took S. Mark LeGree. Byron Maxwell was the sixth round pick and Lazarius Levingston and Malcolm Smith fall to us in the seventh round.

    LeGree, Levingston, and Smith didn’t go as planned but outside of the Sam Ocho / Kris Durham business, 2011 was a pretty good draft for the Seahawks.

  9. If i were a clam, i’d be pissed at low tide :)

  10. Raymaines, you forgot Doug Baldwin, maybe the best player we got in the 2011 draft… and he wasn’t even drafted.

    And James Carpenter could never have been drafted in the 5th round. No how no way. He missed OTAs two years in a row, and that slowed the start of his career. Given enough time on the field to learn some technique, I think he still may eventually develop into the dominant offensive linemen on this team.

  11. Mentioning the 2011 draft… it was good… but our 2012 draft is beginning to look amazing.

    Bruce Irvin – 7 Sacks (1st among rookies)
    Bobby Wagner – 47 Tackles (3rd among rookies)
    Russell Wilson – 15 Touchdown passes (1st among rookies)

    Georgiahawk – correct spelling is Sherminator

  13. PugetHawk says:

    Pro Bowler for sure!

  14. Pro bowl, probably first team all-pro too; which these days means more than a pro bowl vote as far as I am concerned. Pro Football Focus ranks him the #2 CB in the NFL right now behind Chicago’s Charles Tillman, who’s having a ridiculous, career type of season.
