Colin Kaepernick is not a Richard Sherman fan, calls him 'ridiculous'

After the NFC Championship game, it's no surprise that Colin Kaepernick is feeling a little angst toward cornerback Richard Sherman. On Jan. 30 Kaepernick told ESPN that Sherman is "ridiculous."

The full quote on the "Mike & Mike" show in regard to Sherman calling Michael Crabtree a mediocre receiver was actually:

"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."

Kaepernick goes on to defend Crabtree, saying that in that same situation where Crabtree is only covered by one defender such as Sherman, he would throw the ball to him every single time. A sentiment that Kaepernick has shared repeatedly since his first interview after losing the big game.

Colin Kaepernick did seem to take the high ride in regard to his own slight via Sherman. You might recall that Sherman was the only player fined in that championship game and it was for the choke sign he made after he tipped Kaepernick's pass. Colin did not comment on that situation at all.

Of course any football fan can see that Kaepernick is still upset about his potentially game-winning pass being stopped. He even said that if he had just thrown that ball a little farther, he would be in the Superbowl and not the Seahawks.

Just a reminder that the 49ers went 1-2 against the Seahawks this season. Kaepernick actively avoided throwing the ball anywhere near Richard Sherman during the whole game. It has been reported that he was instructed to avoid the superstar cornerback at any cost. Then, during the final play of the game, Kaepernick broke that pattern and Sherman stopped their win.

Colin went on in the interview to vaguely challenge Sherman and the rest of the Seahawks by reminding them that they will play again next year. Indeed they will.
