    I remember him, right about the time I was learning about football and watching my first NFL games. A shame he's gone so young. RIP.

    Hey, Bada, what do you think about the rift in the Seahawks locker room that's been reported the last few days? Any truth to that? Just Sherman being uber-competitive, as usually?

    As much as I would like to say it is much to do about nothing, there is too much smoke for there to be no fire. And yes, it IS in part because of Sherman being a pain in the ass from being uber-competitive. He barks at everyone... when things are going great, easy for teammates to laugh with him... things are not as good, it causes friction. And he is not afraid of calling specific players out.

    So many parallels I think with Draymond. Imagine if the Warriors were under acheiving and were running 6th or 7th in the West and not playing well, Draymond would be very vocal and it would wear on some people and cause friction.

    At the same time, the Seahawks seem to play better when they are pissed and have adversity. So we will see. I suppose this is the downside of Pete's philosophy of letting people be individuals. He never tries to control who you are... players love him for that, but also the loose atmosphere can cause issues at times.

    Yeah, Pete's approach is great when everything is going well, not so much when there's turmoil.

    This statement could pretty much apply to any coach of any sport.

    Not really. Can you imagine Bill Belichick with a laid-back attitude and letting trouble brewing in the locker room?

    Not saying that's what happens in Seattle, but you can't see Bill losing a locker room like that, while plenty of coaches do...

    I know what you meant TMC, I'm just joking with you.

    In Belichick's case, Sherman would have already been traded.
