NFL Media’s Peter Schrager believes soPhoto by Christian Petersen/Getty ImagesRichard Sherman has been one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL over the last seven years. Even in his rookie year with the Seattle Seahawks, Sherman was effective. For the first time in his career, Sherman didn’t record an interception in 2018. Now some look at the San Francisco 49ers best defensive back as an afterthought. NFL Media’s Peter Schrager thinks otherwise. Here’s what he said about Sherman on “Good Morning Football” Monday morning:While the secondary will be remembered most for the mental breakdowns and big plays last year, Sherman was still his usual self. Success rate—the percentage of plays where the cornerback was in coverage that did not meet the baseline for offensive success— is a good indicator for cornerback play. If you give up a 13-yard reception on third and 15, you did your job. At the end of the game, it might not look great in the box score, but the success rate helps separate the filler.Sherman finished with a 60% success rate in 2018, according to Football Outsiders. That ranked seventh among all cornerbacks that had at least 40 targets. Now that the 49ers have a pass rush http://www.49erslockerroom.com/authentic-joe-staley-jersey , and Sherman is healthy, the interceptions should return in 2019. Communication in the secondary will be crucial. The Rams have wasted no time flexing their muscles against the 49ers. They needed only 3:03 to take a 7-0 lead.Mark Barron forced 49ers running back Kyle Juszczyk to fumble, and Aqib Talib returned it 47 yards to the San Francisco 7. George Kittle‘s tackle prevented Talib from scoring.The Rams offense took care of the rest, though, with Brandin Cooks catching a 3-yard pass from Jared Goff.It was only the fourth touchdown of the season for Cooks and his first since Nov. 4 against New Orleans.Only 56 seconds later, the Rams had another takeaway. Dante Fowler Jr. hit the arm of Nick Mullens, and Cory Littleton intercepted the duck. Littleton returned it 22 yards to the San Francisco 13.Rams running back C.J. Anderson scored on a 1-yard run with 10:42 remaining in the first quarter. They lead 14-0.The Rams are off to a good start as they seek a victory to assure a bye next week as the No. 2 seed.
