Richard Sherman to Peyton’s Defense Via Twitter

Hours after Richard Sherman’s Seahawks beat the Broncos to win the Super Bowl, the outspoken cornerback was asking Seattle fans to stop tearing into Peyton Manning.

 Before Super Bowl XLVIII's first snap went sailing past a bewildered Peyton Manning, Richard Sherman threatened to break the Internet.“There is no reason to bash him on here please Seattle let’s just enjoy this one!!!! He is still a Future HOF player,” Sherman tweeted.

Moments before, Sherman had nothing but kind words for Manning.

“Peyton is the Classiest person/player I have ever met! I could learn so much from him! Thank you for being a great Competitor and person,” he said in another tweet.

Manning largely avoided throwing at Sherman — widely considered among the league’s top corner backs — while throwing two picks and just a touchdown in the 43-8 loss at MetLife Stadium.

Manning and Sherman went at it a bit in the lead-up to Sunday’s big game.

Weeks ago, Sherman wrote in a Sports Illustrated column that sometimes Manning doesn’t get a good grip on the ball’s laces, causing him to throw “ducks.”

Manning responded with snark.

“They say he’s a smart player, and I don’t think that’s a real reach what he’s saying there,” Manning said on Thursday. “I do throw ducks. I’ve thrown a lot of yards and touchdown ducks, so I’m actually quite proud of it.”

Sherman later continued to laud the Broncos quarterback. “He’s a Hall of Fame player, he’s a living legend, he’s a record-holding quarterback, he’s a Super Bowl champion, he’s been a Super Bowl MVP,” he said.

Richard Sherman’s Annual Salary $465 Thousand and his total net worth is $1.5 million.

Social Media networks users continue to post “TWEETS’ about Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos Loss to Seattle.  Here’s what their saying.

Seahawks Cracked Peyton Manning’s Hand Signal code

The Seattle Seahawks are claiming that they were able to decode Denver Broncos’ quarterback Peyton Manning’s hand signal codes on the field during the Super Bowl.

Seattle Claims the crackep Mannings Hand Signal CodeControversial corner back Richard Sherman said that he and his fellow defenders cracked the code that the Denver Broncos quarterback was using, meaning that they knew exactly what to expect for each play.

According to Sherman…” they figured out which plays went with which hand motions during the first quarter of the Super Bowl.”

Manning’s hand signal codes are known within the league for being one of his common traits on the field, just as the call ‘Omaha’ is associated with the 37-year-old.

Manning is so closely associated with ‘Omaha’ that 15 companies pledged to donate $1,500 to charity each time that he said it during the Super Bowl.

Instead of his typical double digit mentions, he only said it twice during Sunday night’s big game. (By comparison, Fox Sports reported that he said it 31 times during the AFC title game.)

In post game interviews, however, Manning and other Broncos offensive linemen explained that the noise at MetLife stadium stopped some of their verbal messages to one another.

Syracuse vs. Duke – Welcome to the ACC!

Last night’s epic ACC battle between Duke and Syracuse may go down as one of the greatest games in NCAA history. Hyped all week, this game gave fans of both schools an emotional rollercoaster ride from start to finish. We all know that games like this rarely live up to the hype. However, this one exceeded our expectations…and then some! An instant ESPN Classic. When you promote the ACC in the future, this is the game to feature. Legendary coaches, legendary stadiums, legendary fans, and legendary players.

The ‘Cuse came into the game as the #2 team in the country while Duke had slipped to #17. Really, Duke #17?? The Orange had a chance to open the season with a school record 21 straight wins. In 2 out of the last 3 years they started out 20-0 only to falter in their quest for 21 straight. But there is something different about Jimmy Boeheim’s team this year. There is not a better starting 5 in the country than Fair, Christmas, Cooney, Ennis, and Grant. In the past, Syracuse has had 1 or 2 go to guys but this year, any one of these 5 can go off and lead the team. Duke, on the other hand, has relied on super freshman Jabari Parker to carry them. Sure, others have had great nights to lead them, but Parker has had to be the man every night. So, the game was set between 2 of the greatest basketball in the history of the game….in front of the largest crowd ever at the Carrier Dome ( 35,446 )….with millions of ESPN fans watching. Neither team could pull away and the lead went back and forth all night long. In the end, just when you thought the Orange was going to pull away and win, another Duke miracle happens and Rasheed Sulaimon buries a 3 pointer to send the game into OT. More hoops…more Dick Vitale…it’s awesome baby!! I will say it – Coach K wouldn’t – but 3 Dookies got fouled out and none for the ‘Cuse?? Hood gets fouled going in for a game winning dunk and there is no call? Did Duke get a home job? Roll the tape, that doesn’t lie! Parker’s fifth foul was a joke. That flop would get you fined in the NBA!

So, what does all of that mean? The Big East, one of the great conferences of all time is no longer. Some of the greatest college basketball rivalries ( St. Johns vs. Georgetown, St. Johns vs, Syracuse, Syracuse vs, Georgetown ) have gone away. Some of the greatest coaches – John Thompson and Lou Carneseca. But if last night was any indication of what the “new” ACC will become, we can expect an even better league than the former Big East! We already saw earlier in the week a great game with Duke going into Pitt and winning. Guess what? With Louisville moving to the ACC next year, the ACC will become the greatest basketball conference ever assembled! Still can’t hang with the SEC in football though! You know what is ironic about all of this? We aren’t even mentioning UNC. The ACC has been totally dominated by Duke and UNC over the years and the Heels are now on the outside looking in!

With #1 Arizona falling to Cal last night, Syracuse will take over the top spot in the land with that thrilling 91-89 OT win over Duke. The game of the century rematch will take place at Cameron Indoor Stadium on February 22. The Cameron Crazies will be out of control. Ticket prices will be ridiculous. The ESPN hype will be wild. Let’s just hope that both of these teams can rebound from last night’s emotional drain and take care of business until then.

The BCS National Championship game between Auburn and FSU, last night’s Syracuse – Duke game, let’s hope the Super Bowl can give us a memorable game like those collegiate games!!
