So, Tramon Williams, decides to pop off in jest on how he is Optimus Prime and how he can handle Calvin "Megatron" Johnson. But he also takes a couple shots at the SeaHawks defenders.. and they pop off.

" said: Go to Quoted Post

“Yeah, we were pushed around to the tune of 46 yards, I believe,” Sherman said. “Not too much pushing. I don’t understand that shot, he took a shot at us. Last I checked, we’ve never given up 250 yards to anybody. We barely give that up in a game. To give that up to one player, I mean that was the last time they played him I believe. I don’t really know if he’d be the one (to) come talk to us about playing coverage.”



While on face value.. looks like Sherman is correct and valid. But that is one game. But the numbers over the past 3 seasons give some support to Williams argument.

But still.. why chirp about it at all.. just continue to do what you do. But one has to think there is a small level of a desire to payback the SeaChickens.

So megatron got yards in a game where the Packers were not really playing. If I recall, we were resting a bunch of players that game. It was like a preseason game for us.

After reading the full article, not some random snippets, I'm not as critical of Tramon Williams comments as I would have been other wise - link.

Agreed.. hence the in jest.

But you know, the media is only going to play an aspect and that is possibly all that some will focus upon.

That's today's media.
"Hey, what will get the most reading? I know! Take things out of context and use only what we want!"
They do that with everything.
It's not reporting anymore, it's "hyping".
