LET ME SHOW THE HELMET.

THAT IS A MEAN LOOKING HELMET.

THAT'S A DARTH VADER STYLEHELMET RIGHT THERE.

WHEN YOU'RE OUT IN THE FIELD AREYOU IN A DIFFERENT MIND SET WHEN

YOU'RE IN THE FIELD BECAUSEPEOPLE ARE CRITICIZING RICHARD

SHERMAN FOR HIS ANTICS AND HESAYS WHEN YOU'RE ON THE FIELD,

YOU'RE IN A DIFFERENT MIND SET.

YOU'RE THREE HOURS OF LIKE GO GOGO ON THE FIELD.

LOOKING TO CRUNCH BONES ANDCOLLAPSE ORGANS, CAN YOU TURN

THAT OFF.

>> YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO.

AND WE ALWAYS CALL IT THE WHITE LINE EFFECT.

WHEN YOU STEP INSIDE THE WHITELINES YOU'RE A DIFFERENT GUY.

THAT'S FROM THOSE HITS THATPEOPLE GO EEK WITH.

>> Stephen: THESE DEEP GOUGESIN YOUR HELMET IS FROM THE FLESH

OF OTHER HUMAN BEINGS.

WHAT ABOUT THE INTERVIEW ON THEFIELD.

>> NOT AT ALL.

PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND.

RICHARD IS PRETTY SMART GUY.

I MEAN STANFORD GRAD, 4.0GPA.

YOU HAVE TO THINK HE'S A YOUNGGUY SENDING THE SEAHAWKS TO THE

SUPER BOWL, JUST MADE A GREATPLAY TO SEND THE TEAM TO THE

SUPER BOWL AND YOU ASK HIM ABOUTIT HE'S GOING TO BE AMPED UP

RIGHT THERE.

LIKE HE SAID HE'S SORRY FOR THEFACT HE TOOK A LITTLE OF THE

SHINE AWAY FROM THE TEAM WITHWHAT HE SAID BUT I DON'T THINK

HE HAD ANYTHING TO APOLOGIZEFOR.

THAT'S HOW I WANT PEOPLE TO BEEXCITED ABOUT WHAT THEY DO.

THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS HE'STHE BEST AT WHAT HE DOES.

HIS FOOTBALL TEAM WIN FOOTBALLGAMES.
