San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has broken his silence about Richard Sherman’s behavior following the NFC Championship Game. It was his throw to 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree that was broken up by Sherman that propelled the beginning of the media circus that have surrounded the Seahawks cornerback. As reported by ESPN on Jan. 30, Kaepernick talked called Sherman’s behavior “ridiculous”.
Kaepernick, who felt his team was just a better throw away from playing in this Sundays Super Bowl, talked about Sherman on ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike” on Thursday (Jan. 30).
“To me, it was ridiculous. But if that’s what you need to do to make yourself feel like a better player, you have to tell everyone, I’m the best corner in the league, go ahead and tell them.”
The 49ers young quarterback said he looked forward to stepping on the field against Sherman again. He defended Crabtree, who Sherman called “mediocre”, by saying he has no regret trying to get him the ball.
“I’ll take Crabtree against Sherman any day of the week,’ Kaepernick said.
He may have added more fuel to the rivalry, especially after calling Sherman “afraid” in the New York Post.
“He’s afraid of our receivers, and that’s something I’m looking forward to [exploiting] next year.”
The players involved have already circled the dates on the calendar for next year’s matchups between the Seahawks, 49ers and all the drama that will be involved.
