Seattle's Richard Sherman thinks he's the best cornerback in the NFL. Earlier this week, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he didn't think Sherman was the league's best cornerback. So it only makes sense that the man who brought "U mad, bro?" into the sports-insult lexicon would try to crown himself king of postgame rants after the Seahawks defeated the 49ers, 23-17, in the NFC championship game on Sunday. After deflecting a pass intended for Crabtree in the end zone that led to a Seattle interception and clinched the win, Sherman gave a brief, but memorable, interview to Fox sideline reporter Erin Andrews immediately after the game: "Well, I'm the best corner in the game.

The NFL on Tuesday reinstated former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner from an indefinite suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. The suspension for using marijuana ended Browner's season in December and thrust the 29-year-old's career into doubt. In a  dispatch on Twitter , however, the open-ended punishment went up in smoke. “I realize now more than ever that being part of the NFL is not a right but a privilege,” Browner wrote. “I am grateful that Commissioner [Roger]

Nike revealed its new NFL uniforms Tuesday. And unlike the somewhat unconventional looks of the company's college apparel, the pro football garments are sticking with a mostly traditional look ... with one exception. The Seattle Seahawks were the only team that requested a new look from Nike, which took over the NFL clothing license from Reebok on April 1. And, boy, did they ever get a new look. Anyone who thinks neon went out in the '80s with lip gloss and plastic bracelets may need to think again.

Pete Carroll returned to USC on Wednesday night for his first public appearance at the school since he led the Seattle Seahawks to the Super Bowl title. And the NCAA sanctions levied against the school after Carroll left the Trojans for the NFL in 2010 are still apparently on his mind. Carroll addressed a crowd of about 1,200 at Bovard Auditorium as part of an event sponsored by the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies, the upbeat evening taking on a lighthearted feel when actor Will Ferrell came on stage and kicked a football into the balcony.

The Seattle Seahawks have confirmed they will hold a tryout for Brian Banks, the former Long Beach Poly football star who was freed after serving five years in prison for a rape case in which he was falsely accused. Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll did not speak to reporters after the Seahawks' off-season workout on Wednesday, but the team confirmed that Banks will work out for the team on June 7. Banks, now 26, pleaded no contest 10 years ago on the advice of his lawyer after a childhood friend falsely accused him of attacking her on their high school campus.

SEATTLE - First came the Seattle Seahawks' blowout victory, one of the most lopsided final scores in Super Bowl history. Then the unofficial celebration burbled up, a little Sunday night mayhem in polite Seattle fashion - a few torched sofas, a damaged historic building, maybe half a dozen arrests. A Twitter hashtag (#HowSeattleRiots) followed, with tweets mocking the ways a laid-back citizenry goes crazy when its home team wins the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the first time: “Throw garbage in the compost-only bin.” “The Priuses are honking.” “Wearing sandals without your socks.” Tuesday, the president called.

The Seattle Seahawks ' "12th Man" has long been known for its ability to impact its beloved team's game in a positive way. And now those noisy fans are receiving accolades of their own. According to the fan group Volume 12, the crowd at CenturyLink Field on Sunday night for the Seahawks' game against San Francisco set a Guinness World Records mark for "loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium" when it hit 131.9 decibels after a sack of...

LenDale White was supposed to be a short-yardage weapon for the Seattle Seahawks. Instead, the former USC standout was just a short-timer. White was cut Friday, a mere month after the Seahawks traded for him. It was an indication from new Coach Pete Carroll that he doesn't plan to extend any special treatment to his former college players. Team insiders say White was not as committed to the program as he should have been and seemed to approach his job as if he were "on scholarship."

RENTON, Wash. - They are remarkable. They are unstoppable. They can't be beat. Ken Norton Jr. will gather his Seattle Seahawks linebackers before Saturday's playoff game and remind them of this, raising his voice like a corner man in boxing, and for good reason. It's a strategy he knows well, and an homage to his dad. "Boxers need to be extremely confident. If you've got any insecurities, you're going to lose," Norton said this week. "It's the same way in football. You've got to break them down, but then you've got to build them up. You've got to make them feel on game day that they prepared so well they can't possibly lose.

NFL Thursday night SEATTLE (5-1) AT ARIZONA (3-3) TV: NFL Network, 5:15 PDT. Line: Seahawks by 6 1/2. Over/under: 401/2. Sam Farmer's pick: The Cardinals are capable of surprising, but that's not likely against an opponent that crushed them, 58-0, in their last meeting. It doesn't help that defensive end Calais Campbell is iffy because of a bruised spine. Seahawks 31, Cardinals 17

The reigning Coolest Guy on the Planet is on the phone, sounding a lot like your old man. What? "I think when an employer pays you $2, you ought to give him $3 worth of work," Pete Carroll is saying from Seattle. Gather 'round, folks, for I'm about to pass along a gateway to the future - shiny as a Lombardi Trophy - where you make the most of every moment, don't whine, never quit, and refuse to worry about what your opponents are up to. It's a liberating new approach based on some fatherly old advice.

USC announced Wednesday that it has received a national letter of intent from Lamont Simmons, a defensive back from Raines High in Jacksonville, Fla. Simmons, 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, joins a Trojans team that also includes tailback Javorius Allen, receiver Nelson Agholor, defensive lineman Leonard Williams and Quinton Powell, who are also from Florida. USC Coach Steve Sarkisian compared Johnson to Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. "The length that Lamont has for a corner is very similar to what the Seahawks have found in Richard Sherman," Sarkisian said on USC's website . "It is a huge get for us to go into Florida and grab him. " USC assistant Tee Martin said on the website that Simmons "has that speed you want to have in a corner.

With a 43-8 dismantling of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seattle Seahawks became the undisputed champions of the NFL on Sunday night. So that means the Broncos are the league's second-best team, right? Well, not necessarily. Outspoken Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman declared during a Super Bowl after-party that the Seahawks' bitter NFC rival, the San Francisco 49ers, were actually No. 2 in the NFL. After all, it took a big defensive play in the end zone by Sherman and teammate Malcolm Smith to preserve a 23-17 victory over the 49ers in the NFC championship -- an extremely close contest that didn't at all resemble the blowout that took place at MetLife Stadium two weeks later.

SEATTLE - There was a lot to celebrate  - and a lot to clean up  - Monday morning, the day after the Seattle Seahawks brought home the coveted Vince Lombardi Trophy for the first time and the vaunted "12th Man" fan base went a little crazy in response. Devotees of this Super Bowl-winning team are known as the loudest in the National Football League, ear-splitting enough that the NFL instituted a noise rule in 1985 in response to the Seattle pandemonium. But after the Seahawks' lopsided victory Sunday night, the 12th Man did more than just yell.

A highlight of the Super Bowl celebration, on a large platform amid a cheering crowd and a rain of confetti, was a past Trojan hero bringing the championship trophy to another past Trojan hero. Presumably, at that moment, there was an outbreak of goose bumps in Trojan Nation. After all, if you live and breathe the Cardinal and Gold, how could it get much better than having Marcus Allen deliver the Lombardi Trophy to Pete Carroll? There is no question about goose bumps for Allen.

NEW YORK - Pete Carroll felt a lot of emotions Monday morning, hours after his Seattle Seahawks crushed Denver, 43-8, in Super Bowl XLVIII. He was proud, excited, drained, satisfied. But not surprised. "We developed a mentality from the first day we start talking about these kinds of moments, because this is exactly what we envisioned from Day 1," Carroll said at the traditional most-valuable-player news conference. Linebacker Malcolm Smith, who played for him at USC, won that award.

[ This story has been corrected. See bottom of post for details .] Sunday's Super Bowl may not have been exciting football, but it drew record TV ratings anyway. An average of 111.5-million total viewers tuned in to Fox to see the Seattle Seahawks stomp the Denver Broncos, 43-8, making it the most-watched TV program in U.S. history, according to Nielsen. That was just a hair above record-setting 111.3 million for the 2011 Giants-Patriots Super Bowl XLV on NBC. Three of the last four Super Bowls have set television audience records, making the annual winter game one of the very few TV programs showing steady growth in viewing.
