Richard Sherman calls Michael Crabtree 'sorry receiver' in wild rant
Richard Sherman called Michael Crabtree a "sorry receiver" during a crazy postgame interview of the Seahawks' 23-17 win over the 49ers for the NFC title.
Richard Sherman's got a, um, big personality. And man did he show it in a postgame rant to Erin Andrews, lashing out at Michael Crabtree and the 49ers after the Seahawks won the NFC Championship 23-17 on Sunday.
Sherman was asked what happened on the final play of the game when he forced a tip that resulted in a game-sealing interception and he went off.
"Well I'm the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree that's the result you're going to get," Sherman screamed. "Don't you ever talk about me."
When Andrews asked him who was talking about him, Sherman yelled "CRABTREE" before continuing on his rant.
"Don't you open your mouth about the best," Sherman yelled. "Or I'm gonna shut it for you real quick. LOB."
It was really, really bizarre. And awesome:
Sherman would go on to call Crabtree a "mediocre receivers" in his news conference following the game.
The jabbing then spilled into Twitter following the on-field activities.
Crabtree kicked things off, for his response, asking the media to help make the case that Sherman is overrated, or something like that. Richard Sherman responded in a very Game of Thrones sort of way. See below.
