-RICHARD SHERMAN APOLOGIZES FOR POST-GAME TIRADE-
Seattle coach Pete Carroll says after speaking with Richard Sherman the fiery cornerback was apologetic that his rant against San Francisco’s Michael Crabtree overshadowed the Seahawks reaching their secondSuper Bowl in franchise history.
Carroll said the pair spoke Monday a day after Sherman deflected a pass intended for Crabtree and was intercepted by teammate Malcolm Smith in the closing seconds of Seattle’s 23-17 win over the 49ers to win the NFC championship.
Sherman lit up social media after his shouting postgame interview with Fox reporter Erin Andrews then didn’t back down from his comments toward Crabtree, later calling him “mediocre.”
Carroll described his view of the conversation between the pair as a father speaking to his son. Carroll said Sherman is a very emotional player and that’s what drives him, but he wanted to make sure Sherman presented himself in the best light.
Sherman addressed his postgame comments in a text message to ESPN’s Ed Werder.
"I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates. That was not my intent," Sherman texted.
Sherman also attempted to explain his postgame tirade in a column posted Monday morning on mmqb.com.
"To those who would call me a thug or worse because I show passion on a football field — don’t judge a person’s character by what they do between the lines," Sherman wrote. "Judge a man by what he does off the field, what he does for his community, what he does for his family.
He then went on to respond to those who criticized him on Twitter, some of which he acknowledged were racist.
"But people find it easy to take shots on Twitter, and to use racial slurs and bullying language far worse than what you’ll see from me. It’s sad and somewhat unbelievable to me that the world is still this way, but it is. I can handle it."
Sherman said his issues with Crabtree are from an incident that happened during the offseason.
"He said something personal face-to-face," Sherman said. "He knows what he said, and he knows I’m going to be tough on him the rest of his career." (Photo: Associated Press)
