Richard Sherman is not the 'best corner' in the NFL - GMS tells you why (1)

So is Richard Sherman really the number one cornerback in the NFL? He certainly thinks he is.

Here are his quotes from the now famous post-game interview with Fox Sports' Erin Andrews after the Seahawks' 23-17 NFC Championship Game win against the 49ers.

"Well I'm the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like [Michael] Crabtree, that's the result you're going to get.

"Don't you ever talk about me. Crabtree don't you open your mouth about the best."

Sherman has since apologized for 'attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the game.'

Crabtree certainly lost out in that match-up Sunday, but is Sherman really as good as he thinks he is? Here at GiveMeSport, we thought we would do some digging and find out who is the best corner in the NFL as of this current moment.

One thing you have to remember with cornerbacks is that you have to analyze their statistics with the perspective of how much they are targeted during games and what help they receive.
