Jan 19, 2014; Seattle, WA, USA; Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman (25) tips a pass intended for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree (15) that is intercepted by Seahawks outside linebacker Malcolm Smith (not pictured) in the fourth quarter of the 2013 NFC Championship game at CenturyLink Field.  Mandatory Credit: William Perlman/THE STAR-LEDGER via USA TODAY SportsRichard Sherman is undoubtedly one of the best players in the National Football League. He's certainly the best cornerback on the planet, but he's also one of the more outspoken players in the league, almost to a reckless level.

His post game interview with Erin Andrews following the Seahawks' 23-17 win over the 49ers was one example of Sherman's absolute insanity.

He called out 49ers WR Michael Crabtree, who had been saying he doesn't think Sherman is the best in the NFL before the game.

Sherman's response: A game-winning deflected pass and the words "when you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you going to get."

But you  heart me, so it all evens out!

Seriously, it sounds like this little battle between Crabtree and Sherman has been going on since even before the season started, and who knows what gets said out on the field. Not that it makes it excusable that Sherman acted like a crazy person, I'm just saying we don't really know the whole story...I'm pretty sure it doesn't stop at "Crabtree said he wasn't the best corner," but again, I dont' know either. It might.  Either way, Sherman is who he is. I don't know why anything he says ever surprises anybody anymore. Is he arrogant? Absolutely. But so are a lot of players.

Richard Sherman being Sherman and he backs up his trash talk by wining. I like Richard Sherman sure he is brash I saw his interview in the locker room where he was more calm than he was with Erin Andrews it seem to me more like a WWE Promo than interview.
