CONGRATS TO MY BROTHER LIB! YOU DESERVE IT BIG BRO! THE BEST CORNER IN THE LEAGUE AND ITS TIME YOU GOT PAID LIKE IT!! pic.twitter.com/cem22QtKJ2— LeGarrette Blount (@LG_Blount) March 12, 2014
The problem with that tweet? It says Talib is the 'best corner in the league.' Not everyone agrees with that statement. Actually, no one really agrees with that statement. Take this guy for example, who quickly pointed out that Sherman might be better than Talib.
Blount then tweeted at Sherman, bringing the Seahawks cornerback into the conversation.
@RSherman_25 in my opinion he the best bruh sorry... Can't change my mind...— LeGarrette Blount (@LG_Blount) March 12, 2014
The next Twitter feud Sherman passes up will be his first, so of course he responded to Blount. Although Sherman did try and play nice at first.
@LG_Blount it's all good.... Hard to argue with friendship— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 12, 2014
Then Blount took it to the next level and officially started a Twitter fight.
@RSherman_25 He's the best bruh. I've seen what he does to WR/TE in person and I'm sure you have too. Friendship aside he's the best...— LeGarrette Blount (@LG_Blount) March 12, 2014
@RSherman_25 I've seen you do it & he has to. But he do it on both sides. He follow the best receiver on the field every game and strap him.— LeGarrette Blount (@LG_Blount) March 13, 2014
Sherman was more than eager to respond.
@LG_Blount I just totally lock down one! And pick off passes that come over there.... Rarely ever giving up completions....no need to follow— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 13, 2014
Then Blount followed-up by pulling out his Ace in the hole. Telling Sherman his job is basically easier than Talib's because Sherman isn't always covering his opponent's No. 1 wide receiver.
@RSherman_25 that one you lock down isn't always the best receiver on the team though... Follow the best receiver every game and do it...— LeGarrette Blount (@LG_Blount) March 13, 2014
Sherman then followed up with his Ace in the hole. He has a Super Bowl ring. Blount and Talib do not.
@LG_Blount did that help y'all win the bowl or nah?— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 13, 2014
I'm not sure who won this round, but I do know it ended a lot better for Sherman than the last time someone taunted Blount.
Oh and Sherman's already over the spat with Blount, he's moved onto another twitter feud:
@DeAngeloHall23 Hahahahagaga .....make sure u keep getting cut and being a busy who occasionally gets lucky— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) March 14, 2014
