The Seahawks – and the world – have changed dramatically since the last time Richard Sherman didn’t start
The last time Richard Sherman did not start at cornerback for Seattle, Pete Carroll had a losing record as an NFL coach, Russell Wilson was attending graduate courses at Wisconsin and the Seahawks’ best days seemed far behind them. It was Oct. 23, 2011, the game was in Cleveland and running back Marshawn Lynch was a late scratch with back spasms. Charlie Whitehurst filled in for a banged-up Tarvaris Jackson at quarterback and threw for 97 yards. The Seahawks lost, 6-3.
