CK7 reveals he’ll be rooting for the Broncos on Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has described Richard Sherman’s antics after their NFC Championship game as “ridiculous”.
Kaepernick saw his late pass intended for Michael Crabtree tipped away by Sherman, with Malcolm Smith completing the interception as the Seahawks secured a thrilling 23-17 win in Seattle to confirm their place at Super Bowl XLVIII.
Immediately after the interception, Sherman ran over to Crabtree and tapped him on the backside before eventually making a choking gesture directed at Kaepernick.
However, Sherman’s reaction on national TV that followed after the game was roundly criticised as he singled out Crabtree in a tirade in which he also insisted that he was the best cornerback in the NFL.
Kaepernick, usually a reserved character off the field, has finally spoken out with his opinion on the situation and believes that Sherman did himself no favours.
“To me, it was ridiculous,” Kaepernick said, as reported by ESPN. “But if that’s what you need to do to make yourself feel like a better player, you have to tell everyone, I’m the best corner in the league, go ahead and tell them.”
Kaepernick revealed that he would be rooting for the Denver Broncos at the MetLife Stadium on Sunday, and insisted that he had no regrets over looking for Crabtree with the most important play of the game but still blames himself for the defeat.
“I’ll take Crabtree against Sherman any day of the week,” Kaepernick said.
“If I throw that ball one foot farther, it’s a TD, and now you’re the goat, Richard Sherman.”
Nevertheless, the 49ers quarterback is looking forward to locking horns with Sherman again next season, and believes that the Seattle star is afraid of his receivers and therefore he will be looking to exploit that in their next meeting.
