Colin Kaepernick labels Richard Sherman 'a goat' and 'ridiculous' in rant

Published Add your comment

The San Francisco 49ers loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and Richard Sherman's now infamous interview, happened nearly two weeks ago now.

But, in the run up to Sunday's Super Bowl, it seems like 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is not ready to forgive and forget just yet.

Speaking to the New York Post, Kaepernick took particular exception to Sherman's criticism of 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree.

And he had some words of warning for the Seahawks corner:

"Did that make you feel better about yourself?

"Then go ahead. Because I'm not worried about you," the play-caller explained.

And his fighting talk didn't finish there.

With Sherman and the Seahawks focussing on the Super Bowl, Kaepernick is already planning for next season:

"He's afraid of our receivers, and that's something I'm looking forward to (exploiting) next year," he told Bart Hubbach.

The usually reserved Kaepernick is clearly still reeling in the aftermath of his team's playoff defeat. And Sherman bore the brunt of his rant today:

"If I throw the ball one foot farther, it's a TD and now you're the goat, Richard Sherman.

"His comments were ridiculous. If you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?"

His choice words are sure to make the next 49ers-Seahawks game an even bigger media frenzy - but for now Sherman still has the upper hand. 

He is playing at the MetLife on Sunday, Colin Kaepernick is not.
