"Congratulations, NFL, you did it again."

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman hasn't been shy in his criticism of the NFL specifically for the way they treat the players, including making them play on Thursday nights. 

Sherman and the Seahawks will play host to the Los Angeles Rams tomorrow night, just a few days after his squad got shellacked by the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. 

What does he think about the quick turn around? Per ESPN:

"Poopfest. It's terrible," Sherman said. "We got home [at] like 1 o'clock in the morning, something like that on Monday, and then you've got to play again. Congratulations, NFL, you did it again. But they've been doing it all season, so I guess we're the last ones to get the middle finger."

"Because it's just no regard," he explained. "It's hypocritical, as I've stated before. They make this huge stance about player safety. Then you put the players in tremendous danger."

"We'll be well-aware come the next CBA negotiations about things like this. There's really not much you can do right now. It's part of the revenue, etc., etc. And the league probably has something else up their sleeve. They might have a Friday night game planned. Who knows?"

Sherman added that his body will only be at about 50-60% for tomorrow night's divisional matchup with the Rams which is why these Thursday night games are among his "Top 5" biggest issues with the league.
