Sherman slams Crabtree

Richard Sherman delivered an epic post-game rant after the Seattle Seahawks won the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, calling out San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Sherman, who deflected a Colin Kaepernick pass that led to the game-clinching interception, also got in Crabtree's face in the games closing seconds. Sherman on Monday apologized in a text message to ESPN's Ed Werder and addressed the issue on ESPN Radio. Did you like Sherman's post-game tirade? Was his apology sincere? Do you expect more trash talk ahead of the Super Bowl?
