The above Vine of Richard Sherman running over Davante Adams in Sunday’s game between the Packers and Seahawks was shared this morning by Aaron Nagler, a multimedia staffer for the USA Today Network’s Packersnews.com. Former Packers tight end Jermichael Finley replied, Richard Sherman issued a rebuttal, Nagler presented a contextual rebuttal from the all-22 angle, and Sherman quickly deleted his tweet.
But, as we all know, a tweet can live forever in a screengrab, which was shared by Twitter user Jeremy Thiel:
In disclosure, I’m a Packers fan. Giving Sherman the benefit of the doubt, he doesn’t have eyes in the back of his head, and maybe anticipated a scramble drill where one didn’t materialize. Or maybe it was a total cheapshot. Who the hell knows? In any event, the optics don’t look good.
