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.

When it comes to entertaining and bombastic interviews, no one in the NFL tops Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. The former Stanford standout had a big game in Seattle's 29-3 thrashing of San Francisco on Sunday night, intercepting a pass and limiting receiver Anquan Boldin to one catch for seven yards. Afterward, Sherman was interviewed on the field by NBC's Michele Tafoya and stated his opinion about the people who doubt where the center of power lies in the NFC West.

College athletics and social media outlets have been a hoot. Where else can you go to find out if a receiver is unhappy that he doesn't get enough passes? Or to read that a point guard hates all the haters? So it should come as no surprise that college compliance offices have become active in this realm.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted Thursday that he won his appeal of a four-game suspension for allegedly violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. If Sherman had lost his case, he would have missed the team's final regular season game against the Rams on Sunday and possibly three playoff games. "Thank you @nfl for upholding the truth! To the 12s Thank you your faith is rewarded! Thank you lord," he tweeted .  Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll congratulated Sherman.  "Congrats to Richard Sherman for winning his appeal!

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. The Seattle Seahawks cornerback spent time in his old neighborhood Wednesday, talking to high school students at Compton Dominguez (his alma mater) and Verbum Dei, then to a group of young people at a nearby Brotherhood Crusade community center. Sherman, a former Stanford player who had eight interceptions for the Seahawks in the 2012 season, routinely makes an effort to give back to the community.

In the winter of 1933, in a thatched cottage in Sussex, England, a complicated woman named Pamela "P.L. " Travers began to write "Mary Poppins," the first in a series of novels that would inspire the beloved 1964 Walt Disney movie and supply generations of children with a magical fantasy nanny. The reality of Travers' own turbulent childhood - and her reluctance as an adult to relinquish control over her characters to Walt Disney - are the subject of the movie "Saving Mr. Banks," which has just gone into wide release.

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. He was a freshman All-American, in fact, and might have continued his career on that side of the ball but for a knee injury.

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman has been labeled a bad guy by some because of his nationally televised rant about San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree following the Seahawks' victory over the 49ers Sunday in the NFC championship. But a video posted Wednesday night on NFL.com of a miked-up Sherman following his game-deciding tip in the end zone in the final seconds of regulation could change some minds. The first-time Pro Bowler approached Crabtree after the play, patted him on the rear, offered to shake his hand and told the dejected receiver, "Hell of a game, hell of a game" -- only to be shoved in the facemask by Crabtree.

With a 43-8 dismantling of the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, the Seattle Seahawks became the undisputed champions of the NFL on Sunday night. So that means the Broncos are the league's second-best team, right? Well, not necessarily. Outspoken Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman declared during a Super Bowl after-party that the Seahawks' bitter NFC rival, the San Francisco 49ers, were actually No. 2 in the NFL. After all, it took a big defensive play in the end zone by Sherman and teammate Malcolm Smith to preserve a 23-17 victory over the 49ers in the NFC championship -- an extremely close contest that didn't at all resemble the blowout that took place at MetLife Stadium two weeks later.

No one said it would be that easy, at least not publicly. Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll and his players spent two weeks leading up to the Super Bowl lauding the Denver Broncos, quarterback Peyton Manning and their seemingly unstoppable offense. However, privately Carroll and his players and staff believed a rout of the Broncos was possible. Actually, probable. On Sunday, in front of 85,529 at MetLife Stadium, the Seahawks made it happen, dominating Manning and the Broncos in every phase in a 43-8 victory.

DENVER -- Teams often complain about playing in the high altitude in Denver, which is one mile -- or 5,280 feet -- above sea level. The Clippers will see how they will do playing at this high altitude when they face the Denver Nuggets on Monday night at the Pepsi Center. Of course, the Nuggets usually have something to do with teams playing poorly in Denver. The Clippers have lost two consecutive games and 10 of their last 12 in Denver. Jamal Crawford was asked at the Clippers' shoot-around Monday how a player can adjust to playing in Denver's altitude.

Seattle linebacker Malcolm Smith had two huge interceptions during the postseason, including a pick-six of Denver quarterback Peyton Manning that helped him earn MVP honors at Super Bowl XLVIII Sunday night. But something strange happened after the game - Smith's postgame press conference was intercepted from him. By a guy wearing a red flannel shirt. As the third-year linebacker from USC was describing what it was like to be the Super Bowl MVP, a man identified by New Jersey State Police as Matthew Mills strolled to the podium, grabbed the microphone and rather calmly stated, "Investigate 9/11.

Full disclosure. Before Super Bowl XLVIII, I argued that Peyton Manning's legacy was established and whether the Broncos won or lost the game wouldn't alter the way his career would be viewed. Well.... Who figured that the Broncos quarterback would end up looking more like Brandon Weedon than Peyton Manning on Sunday. Sam Farmer, The Times' astute NFL columnist, discusses Manning, the Super Bowl, and what lies ahead for the NFL in 2014 in the video above. As for Manning, Farmer was as surprised as just about everyone else that the Seahawks defense was able to take him out of his game so effectively.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says "about half" the players in the NFL use the banned prescription drug Adderall. That's a lot of players. But Sherman isn't all doom and gloom. The helpful second-year player has a solution to this problem -- just give in to it. If so many players are violating the rule, why bother trying to enforce it? “About half the league takes [Adderall] and the league has to allow it,” Sherman told the Vancouver Sun on Tuesday. So the fact that half the league takes the stimulant makes it OK?

Richard Sherman was pretty much all anyone could talk about following the NFC championship game two weeks ago. That's because the Seattle cornerback stole the show with his postgame rant to Fox reporter Erin Andrews after the Seahawks' victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Sherman was interviewed by NFL Network's Michael Irvin following the Seahawks' 43-8 triumph Sunday over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. This time, Sherman had the show stolen from him, as his interview was relegated to a small box in the bottom right corner of the viewers' TVs while the rest of the screen showed the on-field celebration still taking place at MetLife Stadium.

Brett Favre appeared on Fox's Super Bowl pregame show via satellite -- from the future! Well, actually, it was just from his home in Mississippi during the present time, but it definitely seemed like something that was being beamed to us from maybe 2030 or so. That's because of his beard -- that gloriously bushy and gray beard that made the future Hall of Famer appear to be years beyond his relatively young age of 44. I'm not ragging on...
