Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman made an incredible play to seal the win and a trip to the Super Bowl for his team. He was the hero for the moment until he ran over to San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree and went on a rant during a post-game interview with FOX reporter Erin Andrews.
Sherman’s biggest regret? Taking the spotlight off his teammates and that is why he apologized.
“It was a heated moment, it was an intense moment, just made a big play and our team just won a huge game,” Sherman said in an interview with Donovan McNabb and Mark Malone on NBC Sports Radio, via Pro Football Talk. “I’m a little frustrated by the attention that’s not being paid to my teammates. Marshawn Lynch had an incredible game. Earl Thomas had a great game. James Carpenter, our D-line, Bobby Wagner had 15 tackles, Doug Baldwin had over 100 yards. I just feel like it’s unfortunate that all those things are being overshadowed by what’s going on. That’s why I apologized, because I think my teammates deserved better.”
