Richard Sherman goes off on Michael Crabtree saying “I am the best corner”
Tonight the Fox Sports cameras then caught Sherman giving the choke sign to the 49ers. The corner was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct, but what was said to get Sherman so fired up? Crabtree had to say something to get Sherman fired up, but boy he made a game that allows him to talk trash.
After the game Sherman then verbally went after Crabtree in an interview with sideline reporter Erin Andrews.
“I’m the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that is the result you are going to get. Don’t you ever talk about me,” Sherman shouted.
Andrews then asked, “Who was talking about you?”
“Crabtree. Don’t you open your mouth about the best, or I’m going to shut if for you really quick,” Sherman screamed.
A more subdued Sherman later visited the Fox postgame set and explained what he said to Crabtree.
“I don’t like people saying negative things about me, I don’t like people running their month,” Sherman said. “So I told him: ‘good game and good try, but I’m the best corner in the league.'”
Congrats Sherm, you won that battle, and also won the battle as the best SHUTDOWN corner in the game.
