Richard Sherman: I don't have a relationship with Russell Wilson

Meanwhile, San Francisco (2-9) couldn't slow down Tampa Bay on offense as the Buccaneers cruised past the 49ers 27-9 at Raymond James Stadium last Sunday.

But they took it to a whole new level Sunday when they channeled their inner Richard Sherman, who's now with the 49ers, by doing this after Tyler Lockett's 52-yard TD reception against Sherman's new team.

The Seahawks had plenty of opportunities for end-zone skits during their 43-16 rout of the 49ers on Sunday at CenturyLink Field, none more conspicuous than a three-man routine by the team's receivers in the opening quarter that reenacted the Seahawks' famous tipped interception at the end of the 2013 NFC Championship Game.

Well played, Seahawks. Well played.

But Sherman got it wrong, and not just because Wilson's actual passing total was 185 yards.

"I don't really have a relationship with Russell", Sherman said.

Sherman downplayed the significance of his return to his old stomping grounds, where he helped establish the famed Legion of Boom secondary that carried the Seahawks to great success, calling it just another game on the schedule.

Wilson, however, was much more complimentary of his former teammate, claiming Sherman was "as good as it gets at corner" and said he has a lot of respect for him and the way he plays the game. Obviously, Nick (Mullens) threw for 400 (yards) today.

Both Smith and Sherman, now 49ers, were on the field during Seattle's celebration, though neither were directly involved with the play.

"Once it's all said and done and everybody who is playing is done playing, people will be more disappointed of what could have been with such a talented group of players", Sherman said. "It's just unfortunate that we didn't play as well as we could have".

It's one thing to be losing close, hard-fought games with young players still learning how to win.

No one in the National Football League does more with fewer opportunities than Wilson.

"From a humanistic standpoint it's very hard to separate those emotions", Baldwin said. "You think about the guys we have out there, you know".
