It's probably not a coincidence that the typically attention-inclined Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman didn't have much to say for much of the season.
The team followed up losing the last Super Bowl in embarrassing fashion with a 4-5 start this year.
But after finishing the season on a 6-1 run that concluded with ending the rival Arizona Cardinals' chances at a No. 1 seed in the NFC, the All-Pro cornerback shockingly found it was finally safe for him to taunt his opponent—you know, now that his team was up 36-6.
Sherman claims the motion was to signify that Carson Palmer and John Brown—who talked some trash about Sherman during the offseason—were on the bench, not to indicate that he thought they were "poop."

Even more laughable than Brown's sentiments is that Sherman thinks people would believe he wasn't mimicking a trip to the toilet (the motion earned him an unsportsmanlike penalty), especially after Doug Baldwin's touchdown squat in last year's Super Bowl.
