Keenan Allen calls Richard Sherman 'just another guy'

Although San Diego Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen caught no touchdowns during a win over the Seattle Seahawks, he came away unimpressed by Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman.

Allen caught five passes for 55 yards.

Now, he's talking about Sherman in unflattering remarks.

“He’s just a normal guy,” Allen said. “We can go at him. We took some shots at him. We are not going to shy away from him. He’s not really a shutdown corner. We definitely wanted to come out and show we could go any way we wanted to and that we were in control of the game.”

Added Chargers wide receiver Malcom Floyd: “Keenan was lighting up Sherman.”

Not exactly, but most of the time receivers aren't even as successful as Allen was against arguably the NFL's top cornerback.
