Even Richard Sherman's mother, Beverly Sherman, knew it wasn't a good idea to test the San Francisco 49ers cornerback deep more than once in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.
"They tried my baby once, but you won't get him twice," she said in an interview with ESPN's Josina Anderson following San Francisco's 37-20 win over the Green Bay Packers. "Best believe it."
Green Bay did beat Sherman once when Davante Adams spun him around and went deep. However, Sherman notched the game-clinching interception with the home team protecting a sizable lead in the fourth quarter.
