NEWARK, N.J. -- Not surprisingly, Richard Sherman couldn't wait to start talking.
Even before his allotted hour began at Super Bowl media day, Seattle's polarizing cornerback began answering questions from a podium set up in the middle of a hockey arena in downtown Newark. By the time the official clock began on the Seahawks' session Tuesday, Sherman was already on question No. 6.
He presented a much different side than that angry 20-second rant after the NFC championship game, which sparked a national debate over sportsmanship and racial attitudes. Sherman was charming, funny and didn't raise his voice at all. He said he was glad to have the chance to show there's more to him than what people saw after he made the play that clinched Seattle's victory over San Francisco.
