Richard Sherman doesn’t forget the disrespect he got heading into the 2011 NFL draft. In fact, he uses it as motivation. He’s had so many interceptions throughout his first three seasons in the league, though, that he does have a hard time remembering all the quarterbacks he’s picked off.
The All-Pro cornerback, who was a fifth-round pick three years ago, already has 16 interceptions in his young career, including a team-high eight in 2012. Those 16 picks have come off passes from 11 quarterbacks over the three seasons, but when asked to name all 11 guys in a recent interview with future Hall of Fame corner Ronde Barber, Sherman needed a little help to fill out the list.
Sherman, who leads the Seahawks with four interceptions this season, was quick to rattle off former Cardinals and current Titans quarterback John Skelton, whom he’s picked four times, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and, of course, Tom Brady — “U Mad Bro?” He eventually got to division rivals like Colin Kaepernick and Sam Bradford, too, but it took a little more prodding to reel names like Rex Grossman and Josh McCown out of the Stanford grad.
Check out the video below to see Sherman struggle but eventually succeed in naming all 11 quarterbacks.
