Michael Crabtree fires back at Richard Sherman on Twitter
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman stole the show after the NFC Championship Game with his WWE-esque antics. After tipping a pass that was intended for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree and forcing a game-ending interception, Sherman was not exactly feeling humble.
Instead, the All-Pro defensive back went on a ridiculous rant with FOX’s Erin Andrews and then continued the fun in an interview with ESPN’s Ed Werder. He called Crabtree “mediocre” and said it was a “joke” that the Niners thought they were going to throw a game-winning touchdown against him. Crabtree fired back on Twitter.

Crabtree caught four passes for 52 yards, so most would say Sherman held him in check. I’m not really sure what he’s referring to that the film would show. Sherman said people should judge his character on the field, which is tough to do when he’s screaming into the microphone after the game.
There was a lot of talk before the game…. Now I'm the bad guy lol…. Well if u judge my character on the field ….So many glass houses

Sherman is a great player and is probably right about being the best corner in the game. That said, he acted like an idiot when the game ended. Seattle had just advanced to the Super Bowl after winning an incredible game. The victory could have spoken for itself.
