Richard Sherman was right about a lot of things just before the Pro Bowl rosters were released, including where he'd land on the All-Pro team.
This was Richard Sherman before the Pro Bowl rosters were released last month:
"It don't mean nothing, I bet you I'll be on the first-team All-Pro. That means more to me."
Sherman knew he wasn't making the Pro Bowl, due to the fact that he had a pending appeal in with the NFL on a suspension for a positive PED test. Shortly thereafter, he didn't make the Pro Bowl, officially. And shortly after that, his appeal was granted -- meaning no suspension and no strike on his record.
Now, a few weeks later, we know Sherman was right about one other thing. That bet about being first-team All-Pro? Yep, there he is: The top vote-getting cornerback.
The lesson here is simple: Pro Bowl voting is ridiculous, just as the game itself is. When Sherman speaks, y'all should probably pay attention.
