Chargers Talk Trash, Claim They “Exposed Richard Sherman” in Defeat of Seahawks
Whether you love or hate Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman for his braggadocio, there’s one thing on which we can all agree: the moment the guy opened his mouth after the NFC Championship Game last year, he provided an entire season’s worth of bulletin board material. Every team’s receiving corps is dying to beat him this year, and every time they do he’s going to hear about it.
Case in point? The San Diego Chargers. After their shocking 31-20 upset over the defending Super Bowl champs yesterday at Qualcomm, Sherman refused to talk to the media. However, numerous Chargers players were happy to talk, and they were all talking trash, saying they exposed Richard Sherman.
So is it true? Can the Chargers really claim they exposed Richard Sherman? Well, not according to Richard Sherman:
Lmao Exposed? …. Complete 3 passes 0 touchdowns 0 explosive passes…. These guys make me laugh

And Sherman does have a point. Philip Rivers and his receivers may have “exposed” the Legion of Boom as a whole, but that’s a pretty extreme characterization of their performance against Sherman alone. So the Chargers may want to tap the breaks a bit on the Sherman trash talk.
Now the Colts’ T.Y. Hiltion—there’s a guy who exploited and exposed Richard Sherman. He can talk trash.
