Richard Sherman says he doesn’t mind it when long stretches of games will go by without opposing quarterbacks throwing anywhere near his direction.

“It’s not frustrating,” he told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Bob and Groz” on Monday.

It’s more of a reality for the game’s top cornerbacks, and it’s what makes Sherman’s 2013 season even more impressive. He’s tied for the league lead in interceptions with six after picking off two Eli Manning passes in Sunday’s win over the Giants

“I just want to do whatever I can to help my to team win and play good defense,” he said. “If that means not getting the ball thrown at me, that’s my job, that’s helping the defense. Whenever I do get the ball thrown over there I have to take advantage of my opportunities and make big plays and help impact the game.”

One of his interceptions Sunday came on a Hail Mary pass while the other was a result of Manning challenging Sherman deep down the sideline. That’s not something that happens often, as Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby discuss in the video above.
