Re "Sherman makes play, then makes noise" (Page C7, Jan. 20): Want a history lesson? Look back at postgame comments by some noted winners, such as Bill Walsh, Joe Montana, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Jack Nicklaus or Tom Watson. You will see class, grace and humility. Then reread and watch the video, if you can stand it, of the words and actions of Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks. Look at that Seattle crowd that heaped scorn and trash talk on Navarro Bowman of the San Francisco 49ers as he was carted off the field at the Jan. 19 game. Watch for some of the comments of Pete Carroll. I guess the Seahawks, the beast of the great Northwest, simply has no experience at winning anything. The lack of class is rampant, aside from quarterback Russell Wilson, who seems way too humble to play for that team. Go, Broncos!
