Richard Sherman: Bucs May Have Received A Needed Slice Of Humble Pie

November 20th, 2021

New podcast chatter.

Bucs veteran cornerback Richard Sherman cut another podcast this week. And he had something to say about the loss to Washington.

Of course, Sherman injured a calf muscle prior to the game and could not play. He was played on injured reserve, which means Sherman will miss at least the next three games.

Sherman has played in three Super Bowls and on many other strong teams. He noted that sometimes a good team needs a wake-up call. And Sherman believes that’s just what the Bucs received in Washington.

“It was just a lack of execution,” Sherman said. “At the end of the day, you have to execute. You have to execute throughout the game.”

What did the Bucs in, Sherman said, were injuries and the time of possession.

“It was a time of possession issue,” Sherman said. “It wasn’t complementary football.

“We’re banged up. Anytime you lose the time of possession 39:00-20:00, it is going to be tough to win that game. That’s what happened.”

Sherman added the Bucs were “humbled” by the WTF. He’s confident his teammates took that loss to heart and the team will be better as a result.

    I enjoy his podcasts. I like the way he talks.

  3. SB Says:

    Actually after second thought….Sherman would be stupid not to to become a DB coach!

  4. Bucs Win Says:

    He’s got nice arms, no game left but those are great biceps.

    @Richard Sherman … ‘It was a time of possession issue. It wasn’t complimentary football.’

    Preach on Sherm, preach on.

    What we had here was a failure to move the sticks and move the ball into the endzone until the third quarter. It brought back bad memories of slow starts that plagued us prior to last year. Starting the game with a three and out ,an INT and
    a fumble that turned into an INT seemed to deflate more than just our offense.

  7. Bob in valrico Says:

    I hated that play to Darden, Put him in motion or a on a route where he does
    not have to be a near stationary target for Brady. He is a smaller more elusive
    guy that should be used in ways to highlight his skillset.

  8. PassingThru Says:

    Sherman is right, there is such a thing as a “good loss”. A good loss is when you lose to an obviously inferior team. The loss forces the team to refocus, and take preparation and execution more seriously.

    However… I thought the Saints game was that “good loss”.

  9. Hodad Says:

    The Saints were supposed to be a wake up call. Talk is cheap, let’s see you do it on the field, not from IR, or your podcast.

  10. Listnfrmafar Says:

    Hodad, agreed. Two GOOD losses? Time of possession, ya D get off the field. 10 minutes plus of the 39 min were end if last quarter, other than that pretty even.

  11. Shirley Norwood Says:

    Sherm u r right. Absolutely

  12. Architek Says:

    I agree with him.

    Release him please

  16. Swampbuc Says:

    It’s actually pretty simple. They have their heads up their tailpipes and they suck.

  17. Erik Says:

    How can you be a new player and say anything about this team when you have been injured pretty much out the gate. If he thinks he can sit on the sidelines for injuries that he acquired during warmups not even playing mind you and say that this team needed some humble pie, he needs to reflect on himself as to why he suddenly can’t play and help out this team which is why he was hired to do. I like the guy and I know he is a fantastic player but seriously don’t make comments publicly like that until you can prove and pull your own weight with this team. He played one full game and been injured for the rest. When you play and prove your value then you can talk but until then don’t be making and negative remarks about this team.

  18. Pewter Power Says:

    Nonsense and just another excuse to explain away complacency. Getting beat by the saints should have been a slice of humble pie. Defense is simply not good enough to be arrogant so if this even partially true Bucs will not make it to the Super Bowl or even out of the first round. Can’t believe this team with their history thinks it’s a win just by showing up especially with a defense that gets shredded every week

  19. infomeplease Says:

    The defense has got to get off the field so the offense can make plays. Last week the defense couldn’t get off the field and the offense couldn’t make plays!!!!! GAME OVER!!!

    Monday night the Coaches have to put the players in a position to make plays on both sides of the ball! Plus, the players have to Make Plays!!! Football is a TEAM SPORT!!! DO YOUR JOB, MAKE PLAYS, WIN GAMES!!!! GO BUCS!!!!!!
