Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s bold comments of being the best corner in the NFL received a mountain of attention last week.
Sherman, who led the league in interceptions during the regular season, began his collegiate career playing wide receiver at Stanford.
Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who played alongside Sherman at Stanford, noted on Monday that there was a reason for Sherman’s position change.
“He was awful,” Baldwin said with a smile on FOX Super Bowl Daily. “He would tell you otherwise, obviously, that he was the best wide receiver Stanford has ever seen. While he was there, my sophomore year, he had four touchdowns of which were from blown coverages. But he would tell you that he would cause the coverages to be blown.
"He was awful at receiver.”
These comments should help make a little light of Sherman's post-game comments after the Seahawks defeated the Niners to advance to the Super Bowl. It will be interesting to see if the ever confident Richard Sherman responds to his teammates jabs as Baldwin had caught only four touchdowns in his first three seasons combined (31 games) at Standford before reeling in nine in 13 games of his senior season.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Mark Teixeira went 3-for-4 with a solo home run against the Mets on Saturday.
That’s Tex’s eighth home run of the year. He won’t continue to hit home runs at this rate, but it’s not unreasonable to think he can hit 25 or more this year. He has also drawn as many walks as he has strikeouts. And he’s hitting .254 despite a .163 BABIP. That’s mainly because most of the balls he’s hitting are leaving the yard right now, but it’s still encouraging for his batting average going forward. Analysis: Brett Talley
