Richard Sherman blew up at his Seahawks teammates after big mistake

Published Add your comment

Richard Sherman is a passionate man, we learned that from his now legendary rant about then-49ers "sorry ass" wide receiver Michael Crabtree.

The Seattle Seahawks cornerback still has that fire to this day and he showed it on Sunday as the Seahawks faced off against Julio Jones and the Atlanta Falcons.

Sherman had a pretty torrid time against the Falcons star wide recceiver, and after one particular big play, the corner completely lost it at his teammates. Scroll down to check it out below...

Here it is, thanks to the NFL's official Twitter account. Sherman was mad, but he may well have been angrier with himself than any of his teammates.

While Sherman was very obviously exploding, it seems we now do know exactly what he was angry about.

Sherman noted there was miscommunication on an audible that was called during a play, and Kelcie McCray, who was filling in for an injured Kam Chancellor, missed the message. Julio Jones scored a 36-yard touchdown and Sherman erupted on the sidelines.

"It was just a miscommunication," Sherman said. "[McCray] hasn't been in the defense that long. We tried to make a new adjustment, and it was just a miscommunication. Frustrating play.”
