The NFL is on pace to set offensive records this season, which is what the league wanted according to Richard Sherman.

A record 3,030 points were scored through four weeks and four quarterbacks are on pace to break Peyton Manning's single-season passing yards record.

"This is what the league wanted," Sherman said. "They want record passing numbers. You've got an average quarterback; the average quarterback's passer rating is like 92 and that used to be Hall of Fame numbers, and now it's not Hall of Fame numbers. That's the average quarterback.

"You can't touch him. You can't tackle him. You can't hit him high, can't hit him low. You can't knock him down to the ground hard ... all that. You can't hit a receiver too high; you can't hit him low; you can't push him. You can barely press him. It's making it really difficult on teams to combat it because every rule in the book is designed to make sure you don't get them stopped."

Sherman went on to say how hard his job has become.

"They're just trying to make it impossible for guys to play defense," he said. "It's an interesting league we play in."
