07:25 AM ET 01.16 | In the midst of his comments, including an admission he'd like to hear something to increase the size of the chip on his shoulder, Richard Sherman took no shots at Colin Kaepernick or Anquan Boldin. Instead, the leader of the Seahawks' Legion of Boom secondary lowered the boom on just-retired Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. That's right. The first war of words of this NFC championship week pitted the NFL's preeminent cover corner against Gilbride, for something Gilbride said in mid-December, when he'd dared to suggest that the Seahawk 'D' had "perfected the art" of defensive holding. "I think he's a guy that's a little bit bitter, and his team didn't score," Sherman said, recalling the Seahawks' 23-0 shutout win at MetLife last month. "You find a way to explain that to save yourself."

Sherman roasts ex-Giants DC

And I would have to agree with Kevin Gilbride on this.

There's a fine line between press coverage and defensive holding. The Seahawks walk that line better than anyone.

OC/DC - it's all the same to FN.

Yep. Rule number one-It is only a penalty if they call it.

Gee, if I were a defensive back and someone said I had perfected the art of defensive holding, I would take it as a complement.

Rule number two-If you get penalized for it, tell the world it was not really a penalty because they never called it on you all year.

He actually graduated from with a degree in Communication. guess he is using that degree now to communicate to the refs before the game begins. It works.

He grauated? With, like, a degree and everything? He is truly a giant among his peers. He must lead story time in the locker room.

Lester Hayes would have been thrilled if anyone ever said that about him... Oh wait.. That was just the stickum.
