Darrelle Revis throws shade at Richard Sherman

Darrelle Revis

The beef between Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman is not over.

During Sunday’s NFC Championship Game, Revis threw some shade at Sherman with an unsolicited tweet. Revis said it was “lame” that Sherman doesn’t shadow receivers and instead plays just one side of the field. Revis accused Sherman of “hiding” in a cover 3 zone scheme.

After some (including us) categorized Revis’ comments as “throwing shade,” the former All-Pro cornerback disputed that.

Once his comments started attracting attention, Revis blamed others for taking his words too seriously.

Revis may say he wasn’t throwing shade, but that’s exactly what he was doing. Why else would he criticize and challenge the cornerback mid-game?

The two have a long history. As far back as 2013, Sherman was saying he was a better cornerback than Revis, who was widely regarded at the time as the top corner in the game. The two proceeded to trade shots back and forth over the next few months before ultimately quashing things.

Revis seems to still have some lingering dislike of Sherman. Why else would he point out such criticism when he hadn’t provided any other Twitter comments on any of the previous playoff games this postseason?
