What do you do after the greatest moment in your professional career? You cut a monster heel promo on the guy you just beat.
Seahawks All Pro CB Richard Sherman made an incredible play in the endzone to force an interception on the 49ers' final drive and send Seattle to the Super Bowl. After the game, he transformed into Ric Flair and gave one of the most polarizing postgame interviews in the history of sports.
After trolling 49ers WR Michael Crabtree by trying to shake his hand after Sherman's tip, he kicked it up a notch further in the postgame by calling out Crabtree by name and proclaiming himself the best cornerback in the league. Erin Andrews' deadpan response only adds to Sherman's one-of-a-kind interview.
Sherman is a smart man who writes a regular column for SI's MMQB. Love him or hate him, he sure makes things interesting.
I want Erin Andrews to interview me after I just won the Lottery when I go off that no one thought I would win and now they all including relatives can kiss my as*s!!!!!!
Is anyone really surprised by Sherman's post game interview? I can't blame him at all. Seattle just won their biggest home game ever and Sherman played a key role in clinching the NFC title and Sherman has always backed up his words by his play. Go Hawks! Beat Denver!
Possibly the single greatest postgame interview I've ever seen. Andrews asked him a stupid question (I *hate* the "break it down for us" or "what was going through your mind?" questions, that's lazy-ass pseudo-journalism), and Sherman gave a WHOLLY appropriate response. Better yet, Andrews had NO clue where the hell to go with it from there. She had another canned question ready to go, and he walked off, which left HER looking like the idiot. Absolutely classic.
