If you hit the off button immediately after Colin Kaepernick threw his final interception yesterday in the 49ers 23-17 loss to Seattle, or you just need another reason to root against the Seahawks in the Super Bowl, here you go:

Here Sherman calls Crabtree a “sorry receiver:”
And here Sherman calls Crabtree “mediocre”: Watch video

And from former NFL coach Tony Dungy:
Richard Sherman made the play to win it. But show a little class Richard. Sets up a great Super Bowl. Offense vs Defense.

Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews, who briefly challenged Sherman amid his tirade during one of the interviews, tweeted this:
Richard Sherman gave a candid response seconds after an emotional game..looking forward to a great Super Bowl matchup

If you’re wondering just what is going on with this guy, the Mercury News ran a piece titled “Richard Sherman: What Makes Him Tick,” last September.
