AOL Spotlight: Beverly and Branton Sherman

AOL Spotlight: Beverly and Branton Sherman

Richard Sherman has been at the epicenter of the Super Bowl buzz, and AOL.com sat down with his mom, Beverly and brother/business partner Branton Sherman to chat about the journey to the Big Game.

Beverly and Branton both chimed in on the hottest topic - Richard's widely discussed interview with Erin Andrews after the NFC Championship game, where the Seahawks beat the 49ers to earn a trip to New York for Super Bowl XLVIII.

Both admitted it was simply "Richard being Richard" and an instance of in-game passion coming out on live TV - but what we go on to learn from both "Momma Sherman" and brother Branton is that it is this passion that led Richard to Stanford University on a football scholarship and on to the NFL Draft where he was selected by the Seattle Seahawks. This "chip on the shoulder" mentality started at an early age, when Richard was first told he was too young to play on the same team as his big brother Branton.

For the Sherman family - it is officially game time, with Beverly sporting her custom shoes made by fans from Seattle's famed "12th Man." Watch the video above for the full story.

That passion they speak of is stupidity It's going to embarrass him on Superbowl 48 . After the Broncos beat the Seahawks (37 - 21) I hope Peyton goes up to Sherman and says " you mad , bro " ? That would be a classic moment :)

He's an arrogant SOB . Everyone in the NFL hates him and one player clocked him in the face . He's the Justin Beiber of the NFL . Don't be mad at us....he did it to himself (ha! ha!)

This is just football. All part of the hype. It's like the WWE, except there are 22 men in the ring.

I think it's time to put Sherman away from any media who help twist any story to now help make excuses for him. Sherman already spoke on national television about his huge ego, which hopefully will be deflated by Manning throwing to receivers who will make Sherman look like an idiot, as they make catches. My feelings however towards the rest of the Seattle team are positive. They worked hard to get this far and this jerk gets the attention.
