Sherman calls out Manning

Richard Sherman stood his ground regarding his comment that Peyton Manning ''throws ducks,'' but did so in the nicest way possible -- couched in praise for Manning's accuracy and preparation and a bunch of other things people say about Peyton Manning when they're giving him kudos. Manning's arm strength has been questioned before -- it was one of the biggest concerns for him coming off his neck surgery -- but his results this season speak for themselves. He'll need to keep up his near-perfect play in the Super Bowl, unless he wants to see some of those so-called "ducks" float their way into the hands of Sherman or another member of the Seahawks' dangerous secondary.

Richard Sherman isn't universally loved, especially after his now-infamous postgame tirade against Michael Crabtree and the San Francisco 49ers. But that doesn't mean he's without his fans; quite the opposite, in fact, as the Seattle Seahawks cornerback ranked 10th on the NFL's list of most-bought jerseys. Two of Sherman's teammates, Russell Wilson (second) and Marshawn Lynch (sixth) also made the list. No. 1? Their opponent's quarterback in Super Bowl XLVIII, Peyton Manning.
