Richard Sherman apologizes, but he shouldn’t have

Today the media attacked Richard Sherman because he called Michael Crabtree a mediocre wide receiver, after having to deal with trash talking from Crabtree.  When Sherman sounded off about Crabtree, all the sudden he is a trash talker and garbage.  Well today he showed class by apologizing, but not for what he said about Crabtree, but rather to his teammates.

“I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates … That was not my intent,” Sherman said Monday in a text message to ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Sherman also addressed his postgame comments in an interview Monday with ESPN Radio on the “SVP and Russillo” show.

“Obviously I could have worded things better and could obviously have had a better reaction and done things differently,” he said during the interview. “But it is what it is now, and people’s reactions are what they are.

“I was making sure everyone knew Crabtree was a mediocre receiver,” Sherman said in his postgame news conference. “And when you try the best corner in the game with a mediocre receiver, that’s what happens. I appreciate that he knows that now. There has been a lot of talk from him running his mouth about me.”

I love Sherman, I don’t care what he says, if he backs it up then shut him up. If you cannot do it, then deal with it.
