After making his game-ending deflection, Richard Sherman did a lot of things, but only one got him an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty: flashing the "choke" sign toward the 49ers. And despite his apparent obsession with Michael Crabtree, Sherman did not intend the gesture for the "mediocre" receiver.
