It’s no secret that Lil Wayne loves sports. The diehard Green Bay Packers fan was interviewed for the latest weekly installment of Sports Illustrated’s Monday Morning Quarterback.
Weezy elaborated on how he feels about Richard Sherman’s level of skill and recent antics. Tunechi criticized the cornerback for his smack-talking and even considers the smash-mouth defender overrated.
In his own words: “To me, the Richard Sherman thing … I think he does it, I don’t want to say for attention, I don’t believe it’s for attention, but I believe there is a technique to what he is doing. It all of a sudden doesn’t seem so natural. It seems like it used to be Richard Sherman loves to trash talk, but now, it’s kind of a technique. Not natural. I’ve seen people go back at him, and when they tell him something back or he gets his face busted, there’s no more barking. That tells me, I’m really not like this, I’m really not aggressive. I think it’s Richard Sherman mouthing off … I know the media likes to say he’s backing it up with his play. Well, Richard Sherman comes from the same place I come from, the street, and he’s doing a lot of talking where he really can’t back it up. I think he’s a shutdown player. But a great player? No. Great? I don’t think he’s a great player. Now if he plays great against Peyton, that will be huge. If he performs tremendously, that will [change things].”
Looks like Richard Sherman will have more motivation leading to the Super Bowl.
