JERSEY CITY, N.J. - You might be wondering: is Richard Sherman really worth all this ink, air time and bandwidth?

The simple answer is yes. He sure is.

In a manner approaching, but of course not equalling, the iconic athlete that he idolizes -- boxer Muhammad Ali -- the Seattle Seahawks cornerback doesn’t just talk the talk. He walks the walk. In strident, chest-pounding steps, too.

He might even be as good as he says he is.

Don’t just take my word for it. So said two Hall of Fame NFLers -- who partook in the passing game at different positions -- in interviews with QMI Agency this week.

Sherman’s Seahawks face the Denver Broncos on Sunday in Super Bowl XLVIII (6:25 p.m. EST kickoff, CTV/Fox).

Sherman burst into public consciousness the Sunday before last, immediately after his Seahawks ousted the San Francisco 49ers to earn their Super Bowl berth.
