Apparently, he doesn't think much of Michael Crabtree, either.
After Sherman's interception in the end zone sealed Seattle's 23-17 victory in the NFC Championship Game over San Francisco, he was asked about it by Fox's Erin Andrews.
The stunned Andrews got herself the following as a response:
"I'm the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you're going to get. Don't you ever talk about me. Don't you open your mouth about the best, or I'll shut it for you real quick."
She recovered quickly to post this on Twitter:
Richard Sherman gave a candid response seconds after an emotional game..looking forward to a great Super Bowl matchup— Erin Andrews (@ErinAndrews) January 20, 2014
Classless? Maybe. But Sherman did make a game-saving play in the final minute and helped his team reach the Super Bowl.
Meanwhile, Aqib Talib was lost to the Patriots with a sore something after being taken out by Wes Welker's pick. Sherman backs up his trash talk. And that's all anyone can ask when athletes open their mouths.
We can only wonder what words he'll have for Peyton Manning and the throng assembled in New Jersey in two weeks.
Super Bowl media day should be interesting.
