Pierre Garçon hates hippies.
That’s one interpretation of what went down on Monday Night Football.
The clean-cut Redskins receiver, frustrated after seeing no balls fly his way–or possibly troubled by so many out-of-work barbers–used Richard Sherman’s dreadlocks as a rope to pull him to the turf on a route run late in the second quarter.
“Yeah,” the Seattle cornerback told CSN Washington when asked weather Garçon had 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 the TV copy you can see what happened.”
Garçon finished with two catches on three targets for 23 yards. Sherman’s childhood friend DeSean Jackson fared better with 157 yards on five catches, which included a touchdown.
Sherman’s Seahawks, propelled by Russell Wilson’s legs, defeated the Washington Redskins 27-17. All wasn’t well that ended well. Sherman clearly disliked having his hair pulled by a man on national television: “Pierre doesn’t matter in this league.”
