Asante Samuel: Sherman, Carroll can ‘eat humble pie’

By now, it’s no secret that Richard Sherman is one of the mouthiest players in the NFL, particularly following a win.

There aren’t many players who’d taunt Tom Brady or go toe to toe with Trent Williams, after all.

Well, with the tables turned, he was finally given a taste of his own medicine, courtesy of Asante Samuel.

After the Falcons knocked off the Seahawks in Sunday’s wild Divisional Round contest, Samuel reportedly went through the locker room yelling that Sherman and Seattle coach Pete Carroll can both “eat some humble pie.”

Does it come with a side of hypocrisy?

Let’s be clear: Samuel is far from soft-spoken. This is the same guy who recently gave himself the nickname “Swag 100,” because he exudes swag 100-percent of the time. The alias presumably mandated that he proceed

However, it’s fair to say the four-time Pro Bowler earned the right to talk, as his team advanced — albeit barely — to the NFC Championship Game, extinguishing a white-hot ‘Hawks club.

Despite putting up one heckuva fight, neither Sherman nor Carroll will be able to dish out much of a rebuttal.

    Shut up and play football Asante. You had a perfect season in your hands and dropped it. The rest was “hisTYREE”. No swag punk.

  • Ken

    I love it. Nothing better than seeing Sherman getting a piece of what he’s deserved all season long.

  • john

    This guy ruined a perfect season by dropping an int in the Super Bowl.

  • erick

    Sherman should get a big ole piece of that pie and i hope it goes down and gets stuck. Its so funny when a loud mouth gets his own poor sportsmanship back in his face!!!

    Pete Carroll Lost the game for the Seahawks , All he had to do was kick one of two fieldgoals in the first half. He is a better College Coach than a Pro.
