Richard Sherman is 2nd consecutive Seahawk to win “Good Guy Award” from Pro Football Writers Association

Richard Sherman’s humor and willingness to talk about almost everything — not to mention his thoughtful answers and interest in what a reporter has to say — has earned him the league’s “Good Guy Award” for the 2014 season as voted on by members of the Pro Football Writers Association. The PFWA announced the honor Tuesday morning.

The All-Pro cornerback makes the Seahawks the first team to have winners of the award in consecutive years. Quarterback Russell Wilson won it in 2014.

Sherman will talk to you anywhere, and about anything. Remember the time I stopped him outside the

Richard Sherman has a retort for Antonio Cromartie’s criticism of him. Of course he does.

That’s me having fun with Richard Sherman over his wearing that bucket hat throughout the Seahawks’ eighth (of 10) organized team activities practice — it even stayed on while he sprinted step for step with Doug Baldwin down the field during scrimmaging.

Sherman then had some fun firing back at New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who said last week on Sirius XM radio Sherman should not be considered one of the league’s top cornerbacks because he doesn’t play both sides of the field and follow the opposing team’s best receiver man-to-man.

“That,”

Kam Chancellor, finally surgery-free: “This is the strongest offseason I’ve had”

The Seahawks are back on the field today for the third of their three days this week of organized team activities at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton. Quarterback Russell Wilson was expected to participate for the first time this week after being with Jimmy Graham in Miami Monday to attend the funeral of Graham’s mentor and manager, and after Wilson attended the funeral of the father of fellow teammate Cliff Avril Thursday in Jacksonville.

Kam Chancellor was back on the field, too, as he’s been all week. That is one of

It’s a boy: Richard Sherman and girlfriend Ashley Moss have their baby, four days after Super Bowl

The timing worked out for Richard Sherman better than the game result.

Four days after playing in an excruciating Super Bowl loss to New England while assured that his girlfriend Ashley Moss wasn’t yet going into labor and avoiding a potentially weighty decision whether to play, the Seahawks All-Pro cornerback announced today the birth of a little No. 25.

And the little

No baby delievery for Sherman; among Seahawks’ Super Bowl inactives: NFC title game hero Garry Gilliam

Richard Sherman’s (very) pregnant girlfriend is not imminently close to labor with their son, so the Seahawks’ All-Pro cornerback is indeed full-go for today’s Super Bowl.

Undrafted rookie free agent Garry Gilliam is inactive for Super Bowl 49, two weeks after the former Penn State tight end caught a fake-field-goal touchdown that sparked the Seahawks’ rally past Green Bay in the NFC championship. Gilliam’s mother Thelma “Vene” Shifflett and her older son made the trip from Carisle, Pennsylvania, on Thursday to be here for Gilliam.

Seattle’s other inactvies: third-string quarterback B.J. Daniels, cornerback Marcus Burley, center Patrick Lewis,

(VIDEO) Richard Sherman salsa dances–smoothly–while stealing Super Bowl media day show

Now, for more Super Bowl media day wackiness…

Seahawks running back Christine Michael is on the right, waiting to ask a question to teammate Richard Sherman on behalf of a Spanish television network. Apparently, Michael was something of an interpreter.

And he asked Sherman to dance.

Not just any ol’ dance. A salsa jig partnering from his podium platform on the ridiculously crammed floor of U.S. Airways Center. With a striking young female reporter from the network.

Pretty smooth, eh?

Sherman stole the show, rising above the above the absurdity of this media

Richard Sherman: Patriots won’t be punished “as long as Roger Goodell, Robert Kraft are taking pictures at their respective houses”

Hello from the Super Bowl run-up at sunny, 75-degree Phoenix. The Seahawks arrived just after 2 p.m. at a corporate-jet terminal of Sky Harbor Airport then got a police escort for the 10-minute ride to their Arizona Grand Hotel near South Mountain. On the corner of Baseline Road and the sweeping resort’s entrance lane, maybe 100 or so Seahawks fans in the video above greeted the NFC champions with cheers of “SEA! HAWKS!”

The news of the 35 minutes or so that Michael Bennett, Russell Wilson, Russell Okung, Earl Thomas, Jermaine Kearse and

Richard Sherman, as uninhibited as he’s been all season

Here’s a transcript of Richard Sherman being his most uninhibited all season today, taking on Tom Brady, the NFL for going after Marshawn Lynch for gold shoes while not expecting the league to punish the Patriots for deflated balls, and all sorts of glib comments.

As I said earlier, don’t expect such an unplugged performance next week in front of the international media mass that will swarm him hoping for more of this.

“I’m going to go cliche,” he joked.
