Colin Kaeprnick responded to Richard Sherman during Super Bowl media week and fought back with some fire. The Seahawks-49ers rivalry is the best in the NFL, and this is just another chapter in it.
It’s no secret that the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers hate each other. Even if one only tuned in for the NFC Championship, it’d be apparent. But this is a budding NFL rivalry — one of, if not the, best — that goes beyond just Richard Sherman, Michael Crabtree and Colin Kaepernick, even if those three have had the spotlight lately.
The latest chapter in this story involves Kaepernick, who is in New York for Super Bowl week and making the media rounds. After all the attention was on Sherman following his post-game rant live on FOX, it’s Kaepernick’s turn. And hoooo boy he mad (via Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post):
“As my dad has always told me, if you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?” Kaepernick added. “If you have to go on national TV and try to say you’re the best cornerback in the league, then you’ve got your own insecurities.”
“I don’t care who’s out there,” Kaepernick said. “I had Crabtree one-on-one with half of the field to himself, and I’m going to take that every single time. He made a good play on that ball, but if I throw it a foot farther, it’s a touchdown and now you’re the goat, Richard Sherman.”
Kaep, YOU choked. You didn’t have to throw that ball and you did. Don’t say you would make that throw any day because 1. He was not open and 2. Sherman is a tall, talented CB, so why risk it? You did, and you lost. Instead of going on national TV and saying you are the best quarterback, you went on national TV and choked your chances of winning the Superbowl for the 3rd year in a row. You were on the bench in the NFC Championship against the Giants in 2012 (cough Kyle Williams cough), Superbowl last year? That’s more on Harbaugh than you. Regardless you guys wouldn’t have had a shot if Eddie Debartolo didn’t pay someone to shut off the power for an hour. This year against Seattle? All on you Kaep. All on you (and the refs, you guys almost got hosed worse than the Raiders and the “Tuck Rule”).
Is Sherman a cocky piece of shit? Yes. But, he’s also the guy responsible for winning that game for his team. He stepped up and made a play. Don’t say “if I threw that ball 1 foot farther it would’ve been a TD” because hey Kaep, you DIDN’T, so you lost. Your team lost for the 3rd year in a row. What’s even worse is that the entire nation had to listen to this dumbass 24 year old from Stanford brag about how he is the best corner in the league because you didn’t throw the ball 1 ft further. Like you Kaep, my pops gave me advice as a kid…
