Richard Sherman’s incredible trash talk wasn’t reserved just for FOX’s Erin Andrews after the NFC Championship Game. Oh no. All you had to do was stick a microphone in the guy’s face and he was rolling like Don King promoting a fight.
Sherman’s interview with ESPN’s Ed Werder on the field after the game was just about as funny as his one with Andrews. The Seahawks DB gave his crazy-eyed look to the camera and called Crabtree “mediocre at best.”
“Well I told y’all Crabtree was mediocre at best, so I would never let him catch a game-winner on me. This is a joke, right?” he said to Werder.
Sherman was also talking crap in his interview with NFL Network after the game. He told them what he said to Crab after breaking up the pass to set up the interception.
“Well, you know, I’m a competitor, and I don’t like people saying negative things about me. I don’t like people running their mouth. So I told [Crabtree] ‘good game’ and ‘good try, but I’m the best corner in the league.’ ”
Sherman kept the trash talk running strong in his NFL Network interview, saying he was happy to send Crabtree to heartbreak hotel.
“I’m so glad it happened like that. We’ve had our disagreements and I’m sure he’s going to have to watch that film over and over and over. I’m glad I could send him to the heartbreak hotel.”
The best part of Sherman’s interview with Werder had to be the face he gave the camera when he incredulously asked if that was ajoke:
Seriously, all that was missing was Sherman telling Crabtree to kiss his Converse!
