Richard Sherman says Pierre Garcon 'doesn't matter in this league'

Another Seattle Seahawks victory, another comment from All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman about one of the opposing receivers.

This time, Sherman’s focus was on Washington Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon, who was targeted three times in Seattle’s 27-17 victory on Monday and caught two passes for 23 yards.

“Pierre doesn’t matter in this league,” Sherman said, according to CSN Washington

Sherman was then asked to clarify his comments.

“I mean exactly what I said,” he said.

Garcon appeared to grab Sherman’s hair at one point during the first half while going out for a pass.

"Yeah," Sherman, who has 10 total tackles and one pass defended this season, said when asked if Garçon pulled his hair. "Pierre did a few things. When you can't get open, you got to do whatever you can. The crowd is acting like I'm holding him. Obviously (on) the TV copy you can see what happened."

Seattle (3-1) plays the Dallas Cowboys next week, while the Redskins (1-4) go on the road to take on the Arizona Cardinals.
