Seattle's Richard Sherman thinks he's the best cornerback in the NFL. Earlier this week, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree said he didn't think Sherman was the league's best cornerback. So it only makes sense that the man who brought "U mad, bro?" into the sports-insult lexicon would try to crown himself king of postgame rants after the Seahawks defeated the 49ers, 23-17, in the NFC championship game on Sunday. After deflecting a pass intended for Crabtree in the end zone that led to a Seattle interception and clinched the win, Sherman gave a brief, but memorable, interview to Fox sideline reporter Erin Andrews immediately after the game: "Well, I'm the best corner in the game.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had words for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady on the field during the game Sunday, on the sidelines immediately following the game and on Twitter hours after the game. Sherman intercepted a Brady pass attempt in the third quarter after he had told Brady all game that he would do so. "I kept saying I'm going to get that next time. Every TV timeout, I went up and said it right to [Brady]: 'Please keep trying me. I'm going to take it from you.' That was when they were winning," Sherman said, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.

When he isn't messing with people's heads - - his good-natured trash talk always seems to cause a stir - - Richard Sherman is trying to mold young minds.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- There's a theory that the farther an offensive player is from the football at the line of scrimmage, the more demonstrative and flamboyant he tends to be. By that thinking, wide receivers tend to be more talkative than tight ends. Tight ends talk more trash than tackles, and so on. So it's not shocking that Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman began his career at Stanford as a receiver.
