Kaepernick, Sherman, and a war of words before Super Bowl XLVIII

Colin Kaepernick talked smack about Richard Sherman in a war of words that took place not long before the Super Bowl was slated to take place in New Jersey.

According to Bleacher Report columnist Gary Davenport on Jan. 30, Sherman "placed himself squarely in the spotlight with his post game rant" following the Seahawks victory against the San Francisco 49ers.

That said, Colin Kaepernick had his own opinions about the Seattle cornerback's behavior.

When he was interviewed by the New York Post's Bart Hubbuch, the 49ers quarterback originally from Reno was mentioned in an article headlined "Kaepernick blasts 'ridiculous' Sherman: [Sherman is] 'afraid' of 49ers."

An addition to the latter Kaepernick comments had Colin saying, "If you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?" Apparently, this was a rhetorical question.

That said, Hubbuch remarked about these statements Colin made to him on Twitter, saying "Amusing how many angry Seahawks fans are responding directly to Colin Kaepernick in my mentions. As if I'm Kaepernick."

Meanwhile and to be fair, the 49ers player and the Seahawks player weren't exactly bosom buddies prior to their most recent meet-up. You know, that all important meet-up called the 2014 NFC Championship that took place at Seattle's CenturyLink Field and that determined which team would represent at the big show.

And so, as the bicep kissing Kaepernick reacts to the rant ridden Sherman in a war of words, Super Bowl XLVIII is on with Sherman on the field and Kaepernick possibly in front of his television set watching the all important game.
