“I think I said, ‘I hope you get some work this year,'” Rodgers said on his radio show. “By that point, I knew that we hadn’t really looked to his side or thrown to his side, and I just said that to him, and I think we kind of laughed about it and went on the way.”
A lot was made about whether Sherman should be moved around rather than play exclusively on the left side, but the weekend’s games showed other top cornerbacks, such as Arizona’s Patrick Peterson and New England’s Darrelle Revis, playing one side of the field as well.
Sherman has been criticized — by Peterson and Revis, among others — for playing the left side only and not shadowing the opponent’s top receiver, so he had a response to seeing them playing it straight, too.
