Richard Sherman Is Done For The Season

January 11th, 2022

Time for Richard Sherman to put his coach hat back on.

The Bucs placed him on injured reserve today (again) with a bad Achilles.

Tampa Bay’s experiment with the old superstar cornerback failed on the field — he was slow and bad and broken down — but there’s been upside in the locker room. Heck, Devin White even explained that Sherman has improved the team’s performance in zone coverage and its practice approach. And there have been many other positive anecdotes from defensive backs.

Hopefully, Sherman stays locked in and focused rather than heading home to the West coast. Yeah, it happens. Jameis Winston, for example, abandoned the slimy Saints for nearly two months to rehab his knee in Alabama.

    We all know Sherman’s best attribute to this team is his experience and mental approach.

    I agree. I truly hope he stays apart of the program through the playoffs.

  2. Mike Johnson Says:

    I mean perhaps the team should have made him a coach or assistant in the 1st place?

  3. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    When we win our next Lombardi Trophy in February will Sherman get a ring because of his contributions to this season?

    Also, what’s the latest on Justin Watson? Anybody?

    Go Bucs!

    i suggested this wks ago — to make room on the rooster

  5. DaBux Says:

    Sherman should become a secondary coach the D-Coordinator. He has the brains and talent.

  6. heyitsadam Says:

    I truly hope he sticks around as a coach for these young defensive backs. But to bring him in to fill in for injured players was an object in total failure.

  7. Swampbuc Says:

    Jamiss will not be a Saint in 2022. Someone can afford to pay the mercurial one more than the Saints.

  8. Jaymiss Pick6 Again Says:

    Not shocked by Jaymiss leaving the Saints to rehab.

  9. Allan Hurst Says:

    Sucks for Sherman but mostly irrelevant to the Bucs chances of repeating as he was mostly invisible save one INT. Where I lost any support for Sherman was when he said on his podcast that Rodgers deserved the MVP over Brady. Screw him. That’s your frickin QB jerk,

    Speaking of the MVP, waxh this debate from today between Wiley and Acho.

    Both agree that Brady is the MVP. For every logical reason.

    If link won’t transmit, “Wiley on fire Tom Brady is the MVP, not Aaron Rodgers”


  10. Swampbuc Says:

    Sherm is a valuable coach and hope he sticks around practice and on sidelines.

  11. Beej Says:

    If our 5-6 secondary people are healthy, Sherm wouldn’t play anyhow

  12. PassingThru Says:

    Shocker, huh.

    I thought Sherman wouldn’t last on the playing field, not due to injury but rather from getting wind burn from speedier receivers. But I always thought Sherman would make a very good coach, he’s always been a thinking-man’s CB.

  13. Listnfrmafar Says:

    I would be shocked if he jumped ship. He seems more dedicated than that.

  14. adam from ny Says:

    a.q. shipley is bruce’s guy…

    the scenario could be a little different for sherm…

    who knows…

    he came in here and multi-tasked and was a positive influence – so it seems…

    if bruce wants him, he should be a keeper

  15. Evo Says:

    Waste of a roster spot!

  16. Marine Buc Says:

    I actually like Richard Sherman quite a bit. I hope he can rehab get into serious playing shape and rejoin us next year as a CB/FS backup…

    He was pulled off the street and still performed admirably.

    Perhaps TB12 needs to get him hooked up with the right people.

  17. Ben green Says:

    Big surprise. It was a reach in the first place. The guys a shadow of himself. Lots of concussions and steroids

  18. theghost Says:

    he tweeted that he is going to coach his “butt off”

  19. sasquatch Says:

    Well, for all the money he made to be nothing more than a warm body for a few games, he ought to coach up our DBs like an animal to help us get 4 W’s in a row.

  20. Rod Munch Says:

    Looking at Sherman’s deal, now I know why he hasn’t been active…

    “Sherman has $350,000 in per game roster bonuses. Sherman has incentives for playtime + the Buccaneers reaching the playoffs.”

    Wow, if that’s correct, he’s getting $350k per game, I’m shocked he didn’t just go home once they started not dressing him each week. Good on him, to be sure, but that’s a deal you sign figuring you’re going to be active. Hopefully the Bucs were very honest and said he’s only playing if they have no other choice.

    Overall though he seems to have had a positive impact on the young guys, and he wasn’t that expensive for a former superstar player.

  21. Irishmist Says:

    Seems like Xavier Howard wants out of Miami. If Bowles gets a head coaching job, maybe we could get Howard and Flores in a package deal.

    That didn’t matter much this year. At any given time we had so many people hurt throughout the season that getting open spots when needed wasn’t an issue at all.

  23. SB Says:

    I thought he was done when we signed him. Can’t underappreciate what he has done for us leadership wise though.

  24. Swampbuc Says:

    Flores will almost surely get one of the open coaching vacancies.

  25. alton d green Says:

    does he play for the Bucs?

  26. SKBucsFan Says:

    He’s too valuable to not have him on the sideline or booth helping coach the DB’s.

  27. Swampbuc Says:

    Great dude. Fully committed to helping the young secondary Bucs. What a great dude.

  28. geno711 Says:

    Well it is not a shock to me that Ben Green is a “guilty until proved innocent” type of poster.

    He accuses Richard Sherman of using steroids when he was never found guilty of using steroids. Apparently, Ben does not understand a legal process, or a sample process, or just generally being a stand up person.

    Not a shock. Sad to see him on this site just to be a horses A…

  29. David Says:

    I would love it if he sticks around helping the DBs on coverages. The guy has a wealth of knowledge and is a Hall of Famer

  30. David Says:

    I would hardly say he was a waste of a roster spot. There were a couple games where they had to pull someone off the street to play. I’d rather have him in there than Desir.

    Just the knowledge he bestowed on the young DBs was worth the signing.

  31. Swampbuc Says:

    Ben green has the objectivity and awareness of a special needs bovine.

  32. Anonymous Says:

    Great – sherm can get a front row seat & watch the 49ers hoist up the nfc trophy after they upset TB in a few weeks

  33. William Walls Says:

    It’s all about #5.

  34. Patti Says:

    Any of you saying he will not stay around obviously have not followed his career. I am a 12 (hawks fan -not Brady’s number). When he ruptured his achilles he was in incredible pain yet refused to leave field in order to coach up corners. Immediately post surgery he was at every practice & game coaching up corners. Same thing when he played for 49ers. He is all in and WILL BE THERE!!’n

  35. Bucamania Says:

    Well that experiment didn’t work out.
