SEATTLE (WTVR) – While Richmond, Virginia is celebrating after two local high school football stars turned Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson and Michael Robinson, advanced to the Super Bowl with a win Sunday over the San Francisco 49ers, the rest of the country is talking about Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.

Sherman tipped what would have been the game winning pass in the end zone. After the game, on live TV, he called out the receiver he was defending.

“I’m the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like [Michael] Crabtree, that’s the result you’re going to get,” Sherman yelled.

So that was Sherman in the heat of the moment. But during his post-game press conference, Sherman again called out Crabtree.

“Crabtree is a mediocre receiver. And when you try the best corner in the game with a mediocre receiver. That’s what happened,” Sherman explained in a much calmer voice.

In the losing team’s locker room, Crabtree reacted to Sherman’s comments.

“He’s a TV guy. I’m not a TV guy. I play ball. He make one play and you talk. Good play,” Crabtree said.
