Sherman promptly got shoved in the face, just like he deserved.
Lest anyone doubt the motive behind Sherman’s handshake, the All-Pro corner made his feelings clear in a postgame interview with Erin Andrews.
“I’m the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get. Don’t you ever talk about me. [...] Don’t you open your mouth about the best or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick.”
Major, major props to Andrews, whose perfectly-timed “who was talking about you” question will go down as the interview question of the year.
It’s been a long time since Super Bowl week has had a villain. Richard Sherman is going to be all too happy to play that role.
