He won a Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks and was the vocal leader of the dominant defensive unit known as the “Legion of Boom.”
His abilities as a shutdown cornerback earned him three First-Team All-Pro and two Second-Team All-Pro selections.
Sherman made it to five Pro Bowls and the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team.
The Stanford alumnus also led the league in interceptions in 2013.
But for all the achievements in his 11-season career, he still hasn’t moved on from one monumental play.
Even being at the postgame booth for Thursday Night Football did not stop him from releasing his frustration.
“You need one yard… RUN THE BALL”
Richard Sherman isn’t having it 💀😂

Pro Football Focus tweeted that Sherman repeatedly said the sentence “run the ball” and raised his voice once.
He was saying this in response to the Denver Broncos’ final play call in their Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
The Broncos had an opportunity to score a touchdown and win the game in overtime.
Stephon Gilmore deflected the pass, ending the game in Indianapolis’ favor, 12-9.
Deja Vu For Sherman
Once again, Wilson is part of a play wherein running the ball is the logical call.
No wonder Sherman voiced out his frustration because that’s how they lost Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots.
The Seahawks had the ball at the Patriots’ one-yard line, and giving the ball to running back Marshawn Lynch is a wise decision.
Instead, head coach Pete Carroll called for a pass which Malcolm Butler intercepted to seal the win.
Giving the ball to “Beast Mode” might have given them their second consecutive Super Bowl victory and started their run as a dynasty.
