SEATTLE — Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who tipped a San Francisco pass that was intercepted to secure Seattle’s win in the NFC Championship Game, angrily ripped into 49ers’ Michael Crabtree in an interview after the game Sunday night, calling him a ‘sorry’ wide receiver.
At the postgame news conference later, Sherman didn’t back down and called Crabtree a ‘mediocre’ receiver.
“I was making sure everybody knew Crabtree was a mediocre receiver,” Sherman said at the postgame news conference. “And when you try the best corner in the game with a mediocre receiver, that’s what happens.”
In an interview after the game, Crabtree was asked about Sherman’s comments. “I’m not getting into that,” Crabtree said. “He knows what time it is. He made one play, all the time we’re out there he’s not doing nothing. He’s a TV guy, I’m not a TV guy. I play ball.”
