Demaryius Thomas would ‘love’ to match up against Richard Sherman

You have to respect Demaryius Thomas and his attitude.

The Broncos receiver is widely considered to be the most talented on his team and could face a matchup against stud Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman at Super Bowl XLVIII. Well, as far as DT is concerned, bring it on!

"He’s a great player. I’d love to have that matchup and show what kind of player I am," Thomas told reporters on Saturday. "I don’t know if we’ll match up, but like I said, he’s a great player."

Seems like he would take it is a compliment. That’s a healthy way to look at it, right? After all, if Thomas is shadowed by Sherman, he may not get many Peyton Manning passes thrown his way. But whatever.

"They’ve got a great defense and we’ve got a great offense. This is what you play for."

Indeed.
