Dave Wyman is ready to make a proclamation: Richard Sherman is the best tackling cornerback in NFL history.
That’s pretty high praise, because as a former linebacker in the league you know Wyman knows what he’s talking about.
Though the Seahawks lost 17-9 to the Green Bay Packers in last Sunday’s season opener, the defense was not the problem, and especially not Sherman. In the latest episode of Wyman’s Football 101, he breaks down a particularly impressive tackle by Sherman from the first quarter of that game that exemplifies why he’s deserving of such a high honor.
By the way, Wyman has invited you to share your own opinion on who is the best tackling corner of all-time. Let us know in the comments.
