Richard Sherman: Redskins fans can't touch '12th Man'

Richard Sherman burnt bridges all over the nation's capital on Sunday.

Not long after the Seahawks cornerback scuffled with Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams following Seattle's 24-14 win, Sherman took a swing at Washington's fan base.

"Nowhere near as loud as our home," Sherman told's Ben Standig. "They have more (capacity than Seattle) but they don't make enough noise."

Sherman plays for a Seahawks team that enjoys one of the league's fiercest home-field advantages, the motley "12th Man" contingent that makes Seattle's CenturyLink Field a mega-headache for opposing quarterbacks.

Jabbing at Washington's FedEx crowd is a little tedious -- the Redskins have always rolled with a loyal, involved fan base -- but that's Sherman for you. He's been at it all season, making waves for his postgame encounter with Tom Brady in Week 6 and using Sunday's win as a chance to mouth off to the losing team.

Sherman is one of the game's top cover corners, nobody can take that away from him. Whether or not you're into the rest of his act depends on your point of view.
