You do what you have to do to win, I suppose.
Patriots and former Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner has promised to go after Richard Sherman’s injured arm during the Super Bowl.
According to a report by ESPN’s Ed Werder, Sherman’s injured left elbow is likely torn ligaments — a much more serious injury than a simple hyperextension, and one not easily repaired. It’ll take off-season surgery to get it to heal properly.
But that isn’t the main problem.
Sherman’s girlfriend, Ashley Moss, is pregnant, and while the baby isn’t due until next week, babies have been known not to cooperate. If the baby chooses to make an entrance Sunday afternoon, it could send Sherman to the hospital faster than any collision incurred on the field of play. Even if the baby doesn’t come until next week, thoughts of pending fatherhood will likely be hovering around Sherman’s every move.
Besides. Every guy knows inflated girls are a bigger distraction than deflated balls.
