After an epic playoff performance against Carolina, outspoken Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman had glowing words for his fellow Legion of Boom member, Kam Chancellor.
“Kam Chancellor damages people’s souls,” Seahawks All-Pro CB Richard Sherman said after the game.
“Kam doesn’t get the respect he deserves,” Sherman said. “Any time you say another strong safety is playing better than him, then you’re not watching tape. Who else is playing better? Show me the tape. Show me the playoff tape. Show me in a big game that somebody else played at a higher level, and I’d appreciate it.”
Few players in the NFL have ever made their presence known to the world the way the Seahawks safety did against the Carolina Panthers in their 31-17 win in the NFL Divisional Round of the playoffs. Chancellor made numerous jaw-dropping plays, from bone-crunching hits that sent Panthers FB Mike Tolbert backwards to leaping over the offensive line on a field goal attempt TWICE. But it was Chancellor’s franchise record 90-yard INT-TD that caused a seismic event in the city of Seattle and sealed the win for the Seahawks..
The pick led to what is now being dubbed as the “Kam Quake” after CenturyLink Field briefly registered on the Richter scale.
