Michael Crabtree has hit back at Richard Sherman after the latter's animated interview following his game winning play in the Seattle Seahawks' NFC Championship victory against the San Francisco 49ers.
With the Seahawks leading 23-17 and with 30 seconds left on the clock in the 4th quarter, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick went in search of Crabtree in the hope of scoring the touchdown that would secure his team's place in the Superbowl.
However Sherman produced the goods and blocked the throw to Crabtree to ensure the Seahawks will be appearing at the MetLife Stadium next month - before mocking his rival during his celebration and giving a crazed interview to FoxSports' Erin Andrews.
Sherman said: "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 (the interception). Don't you ever talk about me!"
[I'm talking about] Crabtree. Don't you open your mouth about the best! Or I'm gonna spell it for you real quick."
Now Crabtree has responded to Sherman's remarks by branding him a 'TV guy'.
"He’s a TV guy. I’m not a TV guy," he told San Jose Mercury News.
"I play ball. He makes one play, he talks … We’re on the field and he ain’t doing nothing.
“That’s one play he made. … That’s probably the only play he made the whole game.”
Following last night's result, the Seahawks will go to New York to face off against the Denver Broncos for the right to be crowned champions of the NFL.
