The player needs to back it up. There is a time and place for it as well.

I love it when its done right.

I love Sherman, so that should answer your question Wink

EDIT: Unless you take it too far, like Kevin Garnett tends to do. Look up the Kevin Garnett-Tim Duncan mothers day incident if you don't know what I'm talking about.

I am 1000% in the pro trash talk camp

Arian Foster telling somebody to turn around since he doesn't know who he was is probably one of the greatest soundbites in NFL history.

Not really, no. It leads to stupidity, doesn't really accomplish anything, and often just makes the player look stupid. There's an extent to which I don't mind it at all. WRs and DBs jarring in general is just kind of...normal. But it is so much more impressive to watch a guy like Marvin Harrison make a spectacular play, and walk to the ref and hand him the ball like it's absolutely no big deal.

It's sort of like a comedian, to me. How many great comedians do you know of that laugh at their own jokes? It is so much funnier when they act like they aren't even trying to make people laugh.

I like it when the big time trash talkers make a terrible play and the opponent gives it right back that them. Twisted Evil

Never understood why a player who's team is down by 28 needs to yap for making a play.

Give me the classy guys any day who don't need to talk and rather let their play on the field speak for themselves.

I have a strong dislike for it. Especially when it is taken to the media and players can't shut the heck up before and after the game. I understand it is going to happen on the field in spurts and that is part of the game. But outside of those instances just shut up and let your play do the talking for you.

Not a big fan of it. Which is strange because on the rugby field I was terrible for doing it.

I much prefer the Barry Sanders way of doing it. his silence and just walking back to the sideline after a crazy TD said more than any Trash talk ever will.
That was Badass.

What Sherman does is fine, Browener is a big (literally and figuratively) [inappropriate/removed], though.

This. If you are great you don't need to do it, and if you aren't great you better shut up before you motivate the guys on the other side who are.

This is Sherman's way of trash talking.



This is Browner's way of trash talking. He prefers cutting to the chase.

i love when players talk crap on my team. as long as they're good enough to back it up. brings an attitude/fire to the field. gets in the opponents head. can't even begin to tally the amount of flags steve smith has drawn over the years for getting corners to take his bait.

Absolutely LOVE it. Brian Cushing is the man. The Redskins need a guy like that, especially when Fletch hangs 'em up.

To an extent. I think it's funny when Cortland Finnegan trolls. But I get pretty annoyed/angry at my guys when they celebrate stupid things like getting a first down or tackling a guy on the kickoff or stopping a HB for only a 2 yard gain. Think they should be saved for plays that mean something.

No. Just play the game like men.

No.

I see no situation where talking trash is more beneficial than not.
