Richard Sherman: Seahawks CB goes off on Michael Crabtree in post-game interview

The Seattle Seahawks filled the remaining void for Super Bowl XLVII by defeating the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2014. Earlier in the day, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos defeated the New England Patriots to cinch their spot. After the dramatic victory, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman did an on-field interview and went off on 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree.

San Francisco was driving and looking to take a lead in the final minute, but all that ended with an interception by Seattle's Malcolm Smith. Colin Kaepernick's pass attempt to Crabtree was deflected by Sherman and then picked by Smith.

After the Seahawks ran out the clock, Erin Andrews caught up with Sherman to ask him about that final defensive play. He was a bit over-excited.

"Well, I'm the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree...that's the result you're going to get. Don't you ever talk about me."

When interviewer Erin Andrews asked Sherman who was talking about him, he replied with a lot of enthusiasm.

"Crabtree! Don't you open your mouth about the best...or I'm going to shut it for you real quick. L-O-B"

Andrews tried to get another question in, but Sherman apparently ran off and so she simply said, "And Joe (Buck)...back over to you."

For those not aware, "LOB" stands for the "Legion of Boom," and it is the nickname that has been placed upon the defense of the Seattle Seahawks. A defense that has pushed this Seahawks team throughout most of the season and been incredibly dominant.

Earlier in the week, Crabtree was asked if Sherman was one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. Crabtree did not agree with that question and said he didn't feel as if Sherman was indeed one of the best. Obviously, that touched a nerve.
