JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- If people were looking for Richard Sherman to get

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- If people were looking for Richard Sherman to get the weeklong hype for the Super Bowl started with another rant, the Seattle cornerback disappointed them. With about a dozen camera crews and 50 reporters surrounding him at a table, Sherman smiled broadly, winked when a reporter asked him about his rant at Michael Crabtree after the NFC championship game, and played it close to the vest in discussing the Super Bowl next Sunday against Denver at Metlife Stadium. There were no harsh words Sunday night. He talked about his respect for the Broncos offence, his friendship with Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas and the fact that the blowup with Crabtree led to a good discussion about race relations. There were neither guarantees nor boasts. Just honest talk. "I think you are always cognizant of it as football players, especially in todays world, that everyone is looking for a story and they are trying to get their name in the paper," Sherman said when asked if anyone had advised him to tone it down this week." Sherman is clearly more conscious about what he says after falling into disfavour with many people for his postgame rant in which he said Crabtree is a subpar receiver. The comments came moments after Sherman deflected a pass to Crabtree in the end zone late in the fourth quarter and it was intercepted, sealing the Seahawks trip to the Meadowlands. The rant with a sideline reporter seemed to transform Sherman from a player considered one of the NFLs best cornerbacks to someone who some considered a thug. Sherman doesnt see himself that way. "I am just a guy trying to be the best," Sherman said. "I am a guy who wants to help this team win. I am a fiery competitor who puts his life into his work and puts his everything into his work. I came from humble beginnings and came from a place where not everyone gets out of. I am just trying to affect the world in a positive way." Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said Sherman is clearly a great cornerback, who has gotten noticed because of his comments last week. He admits he likes players with personalities and has nothing bad to say about him. He also understands that people who did not know Sherman are basing their opinion on one glimpse. "When a lot of people dont know you and thats what you show them, and they havent heard you name all day, which is typical for a corner who doesnt get a lot of balls, thats the way it is," Bailey said. "Thats how it is. People make their judgments on what they see and hear and if they dont know you they are going to draw their own conclusion. You have to live with it. If you are going to talk, you have to live with it." In the past week, Sherman said he has reached out to Ronnie Lott and Deion Sanders for advise on how to preparing for a Super Bowl. He also downplayed the Seahawks lack of experience playing in the Super Bowl. Only one player, receiver Ricardo Lockette, has Super Bowl experience, playing with the 49ers last year. "Ive never seen experience play in games," Sherman said, noting the Seahawks had very little experience heading into last weeks conference championship game.

The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12.EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Matt Simms might have answered at least one part of the New York Jets quarterback question. The starter and backup are still uncertain. But Simms proved he deserved to be No. 3. Simms, competing for the third-string job, led four scoring drives, and Kahlil Bell ran for 80 yards and two touchdowns as the Jets topped the Philadelphia Eagles 27-20 on Thursday night in the teams preseason finale. "Yeah, it was a lot of fun," Simms said. "To go out there and play like that, its just tremendous. Your dream finally comes true. It was everything and more." Rookie Geno Smith, the Jets possible Week 1 starter, and the injured Mark Sanchez sat this one out as both Rex Ryan and the Eagles Chip Kelly rested their starters. That meant Michael Vick also remained on Philadelphias sideline after winning the Eagles competition last week, earning the job ahead of Nick Foles while looking comfortable and effective running Kellys up-tempo offence. Smith, the Jets second-round draft pick, was in uniform but was told Wednesday he wouldnt play anymore in the preseason. "In our current situation with Mark being down, you just cant take any risks," Smith said. Sanchez injured his right shoulder in the fourth quarter of the teams 24-21 overtime win over the Giants last Saturday night and is uncertain to start the season. Ryans decision to play Sanchez, who appeared to win the starting job after Smith threw three interceptions and stepped out of bounds for a safety, was highly criticized during the past few days. Ryan said he wouldnt have put Sanchez out on the field if it wasnt "important," but Smith might have earned the season-opening start by default. "Business as usual," Smith said when asked if he was approaching things as if hell start. "Thats something I always do and whether or not I am (starting), I will always approach it the same way." The Jets have said only that Sanchez is "day to day" with the injury, but its very possible Smith could be under centre against Tampa Bay on Sept 8. Ryan had no update on Sanchez after the game, and the quarterback left MetLife Stadium without addressing the media. Simms, whose father Phil had plenty of big games against the Eagles in his days with the Giants, had his own Meadowlands moment. He finished 33 of 44 for 285 yards while playing almost the entire game; newly signed Graham Harrell took a knee to end it. Greg McElroy, whom Simms has been competing with, didnt play with an injured knee. "We really wanted to get a good look at Simms, we really did," Ryan said. "I think hes earned that right. ... Matt jumped in and made the most of his opportunity." Antonio Allen appeared to seal it for the Jets (3-1) when he intercepted Matt Barkley and returned it 20 yards for a touchdown with 1:57 remaining in the game. But the Eagles (2-2) had one more chance after Zach Rogers dropped a fair catch of a punt with 45 seconds left.dddddddddddd Matthew Tucker ran it in from 1 yard moments later to make it 27-20 with his second TD of the game for Philadelphia. The ensuing onside kick attempt by the Eagles went out of bounds, sealing it for the Jets. Foles was 6 of 17 for 63 yards in two quarters, before being replaced by Barkley to start the second half. Barkley was 13 of 27 for 134 yards and the interception. "I dont think we protected (Foles) very well," Kelly said. "A lot of times, it was a four-man rush that was in his face. He didnt really have time to set his feet. We had some protection issues with the second O-line." After Barkley led a tying touchdown drive for the Eagles, Simms went to work -- and the Jets stayed on the field a while. Bell capped a 19-play drive over 80 yards that ticked 10:19 off the clock with a 2-yard touchdown run, his second score of the game. "Hes been playing phenomenally all season," Bell said of Simms. "The kids been coming out and slinging it." Simms was sacked seven times in the first half, and the first came 2:21 into the game when he was taken down by Brandon Graham in the end zone for a safety that gave the Eagles a 2-0 lead. The Jets got the ball back quickly, though, by forcing a turnover on second down when Ricky Sapp sacked Foles and forced a fumble that was recovered by Antonio Garay. Simms then led a five-play scoring drive that included a defensive holding penalty and was capped by an 8-yard run by Bell, who took a direct snap in the wildcat formation. Dan Carpenter, signed Tuesday to compete with incumbent Nick Folk, kicked a 45-yard field goal with 4:01 left in the opening quarter to make it 10-2. Philadelphia took advantage of a fumble recovery by Colt Anderson late in the first half after Konrad Reuland lost the ball and put the Eagles deep in Jets territory. Alex Henery kicked a 38-yard field goal moments later to make it 10-5 with 2:34 left. Barkley led a 16-play, 80-yard scoring drive on the Eagles second possession of the second half, capped by a 3-yard run by Tucker. The undrafted free agent out of TCU then took a handoff up the middle for the 2-point conversion to tie it at 13 with 6:35 left in the third quarter. "Ive kind of been all over the place," Barkley said. "Its a different kind of rhythm you have to try and get in to. Its kind of bits and pieces. I think Ive managed to do as best a job as I can. Im learning as much as I can." NOTES: Eagles CB Trevard Lindley sprained his right ankle in the third quarter, and TE James Casey left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and didnt return. ... Simms 285 yards passing were the most by a Jets QB in a preseason game since Ray Lucas threw for 286 against the Giants in 2000. ... LBs Chris McCoy and Everette Brown each had two sacks for the Eagles.
