(NEWARK, N.J.) — Following his NFC Championship Game tirade, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman regretted his actions, and believes the cameras shouldn’t just be focused on him on Sunday.
“I think I have the best teammates in the world,” Sherman said. “I think these cameras could be anywhere, they could be on all my teammates and they deserve them.”
Sherman and the Seahawks defense are looking forward to the challenge of going up against Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who is playing in his third Super Bowl.
“I think he’s one of the best in the history of the game,” Sherman said of Manning. “He’s a living legend right now; he’s been a living legend for years.”
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll added that he isn’t worried about his team having little Super Bowl experience. “It’s a great opportunity for us and we’re very blessed to have this,” he added,
Second-year quarterback Russell Wilson believes this team has a shot to take home the Lombardi Trophy.
“I expect to play at a high level and I expect to be fighting for a Super Bowl every year,” Wilson said. “Our goal is to go 1-0.”
