Seahawks' Richard Sherman blames officials for loss to 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers got a rare win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. It was a big match up between the NFC West teams, but Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman thinks the game didn’t go as plan. The Seahawks were full of confidence and felt like they had to play a 49ers team that had the help of the officials.

“We didn’t project it to be this way,” Sherman said after the game, via the 49ers’ team website. “We expected to blow them out, but they got the benefit of a few calls tonight throughout the game, and that helps you especially on third down. We will see them again, and it will be a different result.”

The 49ers got wide receiver Michael Crabtree back, and he promised he would be a difference maker in the game.

Now it’s different.  New day, new game,” Crabtree said Friday, via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.

Sherman didn’t think that made a difference.

“It didn’t make a difference,” Sherman said. “It didn’t make a difference at all.”

Sherman went back to blaming the officials.

“The penalties, that is what made the difference today,” Sherman added.
