If you didn't know already, the Seattle Seahawks defeated the San Francisco 49ers over the weekend, ensuring their spot in the 2014 Super Bowl as well as taking home the NFC Championship. This was thanks to cornerback Richard Sherman tipping a pass intended for 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree at the end of the game. Sherman was penalized for an unsportsmanlike gesture after the tip, which was the topic of a post-game interview on live TV with Erin Andrews. This is wear Sherman started his rant against Crabtree.
"No, that was for (49ers quarterback Colin) Kaepernick," Sherman said of his choking gesture, which he was penalized for and looked like it was intended for Crabtree. No, Sherman simply had words for the 49ers receiver.
"Well, I'm the best player in the game," Sherman yelled into the camera. "When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you're going to get. Don't you ever talk about me."
A flabbergasted Andrews asked who had been talking about him and Sherman said, "Crabtree. Don't you open your mouth about the best, or I'm going to shut it for you real quick."
