First off, Eric Decker was on the Jets this year, and no where near the Super Bowl, but that didn’t stop him from commenting on Richard Sherman and his girlfriend’s birth.
Decker said some pretty dumb things, but being there for your girl and child is a once in a lifetime event.
“Well it’s different when it’s a girlfriend and a wife,” Decker told WFAN radio. “So I think if it was my wife giving birth, you know, ultimately I believe my purpose is to be a father and a husband.”
Sherman’s girlfriend, Ashley Moss, said she wants him to play in the Super Bowl. The couple hasn’t shared their plan for what would happen if she goes into premature labor during the game.
Decker reiterates that he would skip the game if he was in the situation, and mentions that timing is everything.
“It’s easier said now because I’m not preparing for the game and I’m not in that situation,” Decker continued. “But with a clear mind, I guess, thinking about that situation he’s in — I mean, you never want to be in it. You’ve gotta time your conception a little better, I would say. But I would be there for my wife and my newborn child.”
Well, that was an interesting quote no….
