Even in victory, Richard Sherman is one ornery individual.
Following the Seattle Seahawks 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC title game, a game in which Sherman made the pivotal, game-sealing tip, Sherman unloaded on Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews, declaring himself the premier cornerback in the league and trashing 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree.
A transcript of the interview via BuzzFeed:
-- [Sherman:] “Well, I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get! Don’t you EVER talk about me.”
-- [Andrews:] Who was talking about you?
-- [Sherman:]“Crabtree. Don’t you open your mouth about the best. Or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick. L-O-B.”
Sherman added fuel to the fire at the postgame podium, as well.
Crabtree fired back at Sherman shortly after the game via social media.
The best cornerback in the league? The jury is divided, but few can rival Sherman as an interviewee.
