In partnership with the NFL in the UK


Even on Twitter, Richard Sherman is still the best in the game

Published Add your comment

Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman is the best cornerback in the NFL right now - and his game on Twitter is pretty good too.

Sherman and the Seahawks destroyed the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl last Sunday, running out 43-8 winners in one of the biggest blowouts ever.

But still, for some Twitter trolls, that's not going to stop them from having a dig.

As you can see from the screenshot, a Twitter user took a shot at Sherman for failing to make a signature play and for getting injured in the second half.

Of course, the fact Sherman failed to make a play like his one on Michael Crabtree in the NFC Championship game could be down to several factors.

Not least the fact that Peyton Manning was probably avoiding him at all costs - after all, it wouldn't be smart to target one of the best cover corners in the NFL.

So how did the Seahawks star respond to the torrent of abuse? In the best way possible, of course.

By tweeting a smiling picture of him posing with the Lombardi Trophy. Touché.
