Seattle Seahawks Rumors: Richard Sherman Mocks Antonio Cromartie Over Super Bowl Appearance [VIDEO]
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman doesn't take slights lightly, so it's no surprise he's firing back at New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, who recently said Sherman doesn't compare to Darrelle Revis.
"Go follow the No. 1 receiver," Cromartie said last week. "Follow him around for a whole entire game and let's see what you can do. Darrelle Revis [Cromartie's teammate now with the Jets] has done that his whole career. I've done that. Patrick Peterson [of Arizona] has done it. Joe Haden [of Cleveland] has done it. [Sherman] is the only defensive back that hasn't."
Sherman has made back-to-back Pro Bowls, led a secondary that has led the Seahawks to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances, and intercepted 20 passes over the last three seasons. While he was selected to the last two Pro Bowls, he hasn't actually played in either because of Seattle's Super Bowl berths. Last year, that opened up a spot for Cromartie, who was playing for the Cardinals in 2014, to make the roster.
Sherman didn't forget.
"That was unfortunate," Sherman said of Cromartie's criticism. "You would think after me helping him get a Pro Bowl bid [for the 2014 season] ... We went to the Super Bowl and he wouldn't have made it to the Pro Bowl otherwise. And now he's talking bad."
Last year Cromartie picked off three passes for the third consecutive season, made 52 tackles and recovered one fumble and returned it for a touchdown. Cromartie has made four Pro Bowls in his career, and was named First Team All-Pro in 2007.
