PITTSBURGH (93-7 The FAN) – There has been plenty of criticism for Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Richard Sherman and the interview he gave Erin Andrews after the NFC Championship game, but Kevin Harlan of CBS Sports says the criticism is maybe being directed at the wrong person as Andrews should be the one taking the blame.
“I don’t know if she was unprepared, her reaction was more about her than the guy,” Harlan said. “It was very odd. If you go back and look at that interview, her reaction was more like drama queenish.”
Harlan pointed out the work of other female sideline reporters and believes they would have handled the situation better.
“If Michelle Tafoya or someone like that were interviewing, I can’t help believe that she wouldn’t have asked the appropriate followup and been a little bit more composed,” Harlan added. “Whereas the gal that was asking the questions was almost like she was on a stage. It wasn’t about her, it’s all about him, and the more I think about it, the more irritated I get.”
Harlan continued to share his opinions on the Andrews interview with Sherman and why he’s so critical of it.
