RICHARD SHERMAN BLAMES OFFICIATING FOR SEAHAWKS’ LOSS - Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said “questionable calls” by the officials during Sunday’s game in San Francisco led to Seattle’s 19-17 loss to the 49ers.
“We didn’t project it to… be this way,” he said after the game, via 49ers.com. “We expected to blow them out but they got the benefit of a few calls tonight throughout the game and that helps you especially on third down, we will see them again and it will be a different result.”
Sherman was flagged twice on third downs for holding, and the one accepted by the 49ers led to three points. But the cornerback was adamant that 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree, who had missed almost the entire season while recovering from an Achilles injury, didn’t have an impact on the outcome.
“It didn’t make a difference,” Sherman said. “It didn’t make a difference at all.”
So what did?
“The penalties,” Sherman said. “That is what made the difference today.”
Head coach Pete Carroll also mentioned the abundance of flags in his postgame comments.
“It felt like it kind of dictated the flow of it, but that is the way it goes sometimes,” Carroll said. “They call them on us, they call them on them as well. I’m not complaining about that, I just wish it wasn’t a part of this game because it could have made a difference. So, it was a terrific win for them and, unfortunately for us, we have to keep battling and battle through the end here, and see if we can put this thing in order.” (Photo: USA TODAY Sports)

We sit in the mud and reach for the stars.
It is what it is, that’s the way that I play. If guys want to pretend to be tough, then I look forward to it. Talking, that’s just what they do, you know what I’m saying? So, I let my play speak for itself.
I am thinking with all minds, I am dreaming through all dreams, I am feeling through all feelings. I am the silent joy of life moving through all beings.
Books Can Be Dear Friends
As a human being, you make your greatest evolutionary progress by the power of thought. Set aside some time each day to improve your mind. It is more commendable to read awhile than occupy yourself day and night with housework or with noncreative activities. Plan your life so that you do not live in a haphazard way; but if your tendency is to over-organize your time, get away from that extreme also. Balance is necessary in every avenue in life. Instead of using your mind only to plan your everyday work and other passing activities, or with idle mind letting your time slip away, employ it some of the time in constructive reading. Have at hand some worthwhile reading material, and pursue it during free moments. It is more effective to have a variety of literature - a bit of science, a bit of history, philosophy, biography, travel - anything that will expand and inspire your mind.
Books can be dear friends, and if your selections are choice ones you will experience much benefit with them. It may seem very hard at first when you read Emerson or Milton or Plato, or some of the great saints, but after a while you will find yourself thinking about what they have written. You will feel you have gained something, because all those sages received their wisdom from the infinite treasure-house of God - ideas that otherwise might not occur to you in a lifetime.
