News, notes and quotes: Sherman meet Revis, Revis ... Sherman

Thursdays are for Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman:

> Wilson explained the two goal-line plays where he didn't hand to Marshawn Lynch this way:

"The first one was a fake to my left and I keep it. It was one of those that we ran before and it worked. They just made a play on it. The second one was one of our zone-read plays. Chris Long came through right away, so I was just kind of reading the area and I thought he was going to tackle Marshawn, so I took it. You never know with Marshawn. Probably next time, I'll hand it off. We'll see."

> Wilson also said, "We have to work on our protection, obviously. I'll put the blame on me. I have to figure out a way. We're in the process of figuring it out."

> With Tampa coming to town, there was talk about Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis. Sherman said he's never met Revis and also said he didn't regret anything he said on Twitter during the back-and-forth with Revis.

"He's a good player and he's having a good year," Sherman said. "I don't think he's very happy with the way they're using him in the scheme, playing a lot of Cover 2 and making him play off. I think he's much better when he's man-to-man. I think any corner that has pride about himself wants to be in man-to-man situations. Can't help how you're being used."

Sherman was then asked how he would react if he was asked to play zone, and said, "They do sometimes." How would you react? "I play."

> Sherman said Earl Thomas is one of the "most locked-in" football player he's ever seen.

> Sherman also said he thinks Lynch is one of the "most misunderstood people in the game."

> Sherman said he's fine after taking a shot to the ribs Monday night.

> Sherman also said, "Until they find the a way to teleport the ball in, I think everything is coverable."
