Richard Sherman believes he is better than Darrelle Revis?

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is one of the cockiest players in the NFL, and deservedly so. Over the past two seasons, Sherman has emerged as one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the league. He was the anchor of a Seattle defense that led the team to an 11-5 regular season record this year and fell two points short of advancing to the NFC Championship Game.

The one player who might be able to argue that Sherman is not the best corner in the NFL is New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. The term “Revis Island” didn’t spring up out of nowhere. However, a tweet from Sherman early Friday morning would seem to indicate that he feels he is now No. 1.

This is the same Sherman who got in Tom Brady’s face after the Seahawks beat the New England Patriots and bragged about shutting down Calvin Johnson several weeks ago. He loves tooting his own horn, and he backs it up for the most part. That being said, Revis has been shutting opposing teams’ best receivers down for more than six seasons. Sherman may have 12 interceptions through his first two seasons as opposed to Revis’ eight, but he will have to maintain his level of play for a couple more years.

Assuming Revis bounces back from knee surgery this offseason, I’d call these two 1A and 1B at the moment. Both are great cornerbacks in a league where the position is more difficult than ever to play. Sherman also gave his followers this reminder:

If bragging helps Sherman to continue playing at a high level, I’m sure Seahawks fans welcome it.
