Richard Sherman doesn’t want to be tracking receivers all game without the ball coming at him. That’s what happened against Atlanta on Sunday. Matt Ryan didn’t throw at Sherman once, for multiple reasons. Those include constant pressure and Brandon Browner leaving the game.
Still, film shows Ryan hardly even progressed to his read on Sherman’s right side. So, in today’s notebook, we wrote about Sherman not seeing passes come his way lately.
On a separate note, I wouldn’t be surprised by an answer today on Percy Harvin’s availability for Sunday. Initially, I thought it wouldn’t be until game day, but, if he has another full practice Friday, we could hear from Pete Carroll that it’s likely Harvin will play. Stay tuned for that.
Once Harvin’s situation is clarified, we can all finally get back to talking about Andrew Luck.
