SEATTLE — Following his interception in the third quarter Monday night, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman stared down the Buffalo Bills‘ sideline and drew the ire of coach Rex Ryan.

“I had some words,” Ryan said afterwards. “I think I said, ‘You’re too good of a player to act like an ass.’ I think that’s what I said.”

During his weekly appearance on the “Brock and Salk” show on 710 ESPN Seattle, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked about Ryan’s comments.

“I just wish he’d coach his own team,” Carroll said. “Just coach your own guys.”

In a bizarre sequence at the end of the first half, Sherman jumped offsides on a Bills field goal attempt and brought down kicker Dan Carpenter.

NFL senior vice president of officiating Dean Blandino said that Sherman should have been penalized for unnecessary roughness on the play, but no flag was thrown.

“That guy [Carpenter], he hams it up a little bit too, which made it bad,” Carroll said. “But he was able to play that same play, fortunately.”

Carroll said the officials should have blown the whistle and ruled that Sherman was unabated to the quarterback.

“Then if a guy comes off the edge, they blow the whistle, and he comes and drills the quarterback, then they give you unnecessary roughness,” Carroll said. “That’s what the call should have been in that case.”

Sherman said after the game that he didn’t hear the whistle and noted that Carpenter continued on trying to kick the ball.

“He should avoid the contact if he hears the whistle,” Carroll said. “Otherwise he plays the play out.”
