Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman might be every NFL receiver's nightmare, but he's every scribe's dream.

And you're probably going to be seeing a lot more of him in the years to come. You would already if he didn't play far away from the centre of the media world, the American upper east coast.

The All Pro loves to talk, and loves to hear himself talk.

That's a good thing, too, because Sherman is as eloquent and unfiltered as he is opinionated. Ya can't hate that.

Four days before his Seahawks play the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game (6:30 p.m. EST, CTV/FOX), Sherman held his once-a-week press availability in Seattle Wednesday afternoon.

Watching on the web, before I head out to Seattle Thursday, it occurred to me that perhaps only the late, great George Carlin would not have got as many laughs while hitting so many nails so squarely on the head.

Here's a sampling.
