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.

Manning, Broncos to the Super Bowl

Compared to the rest of his accomplishments, Peyton Manning's big-game reputation is rather lacking. Not that you would have noticed Sunday, as his Denver Broncos handled the visiting New England Patriots 26-16, earning Manning (32-of-43, 400 yards, two pass TDs) a trip to his third Super Bowl. Manning is 1-1 in the Big Game, and another win could send him even higher up the all-time QB charts. Meanwhile, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick were denied trips to their sixth Super Bowl together, and one must wonder if they'll ever make it back.
