Richard Sherman was mic’d during NFC Championship game, will be played on Inside the NFL on Shwotime


The most interesting play of the NFC Championship game was the one that sealed the win for the Seattle Seahawks. After breaking up the pass, cornerback ran over to Michael Crabtree and said something that resulted in Crabtree shoving him in the face. That of course led to the now famous post-game rant during the interview with Erin Andrews.

A transcript of the interview via BuzzFeed:

– [Sherman:] “Well, I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you gonna get! Don’t you EVER talk about me.”
– [Andrews:] Who was talking about you?
– [Sherman:]“Crabtree. Don’t you open your mouth about the best. Or I’m gonna shut it for you real quick. L-O-B.”

So that all had us wondering, or at least me anyways, what was said between Sherman and Crabtree at the end of the game when Sherman chased him down? Well the football gods are rewarding us because Sherman was wearing a mic during the game. Inside The NFL on Showtime premieres Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET, and they’ll play highlight packages including that audio.
