Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and former coach Jim Harbaugh share good memories
Still, that does not keep him his mischievous nature contained and he has fun in making the 49ers get heated. But it was the 49ers who triumphed the Seahawks on December 8 at Candlestick Park. Sherman said that it was play calling and general management of the team that was to blame for the loss.
"We didn't project it to be this way," Sherman said. "We expected to blow them out, but they got the benefit of a few calls throughout the game. ... We will see them again, and it will be a different result."
On Sunday the Seahawks and the 49ers will meet yet again in Seattle when they compete for the NFC Championship Game. This will be the third time in the NFL 2013 season that they have confronted each other.
Despite 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Sherman playing on different teams and competing against each other Harbaugh said that he had good memories of Sherman and complimented him on his gameplay. Still, Sherman said that when the first time in the season they met he went to Harbaugh to greet but he instead ignored him.
Yet Harbaugh said that they had a good time together but things had changed as they were playing against each other now. He added that he wished Sherman good luck for his future career.
"Great memories of Richard Sherman when we were teammates at Stanford University but now we're adversaries, competitors. I still wish Richard great success and happiness in his career,” Harbaugh said. “But I can't wish him luck this week because we're playing him, but great memories, fond memories, of Richard when we were together.”
Following the game they had in Seattle Sherman went to Harbaugh and gave him a pat on his back, congratulating him on a good game. Sherman complained that he did not get any acknowledgement from him.
"I told him good game, good job," Sherman said at the time, "but he didn't give me nothing back. I guess sportsmanship doesn't go both ways."
