Darrelle Revis critical of Richard Sherman after THAT interview

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Darrelle Revis cornerback has criticised Richard Sherman's controversial post-game interview following the Seattle Seahwaks' NFC Championship victory over the San Francisco 49ers last week.

Although the Bucs didn't make it to the play-offs, Revis enjoyed a good season and earned a spot in the Pro Bowl this weekend.

Sherman courted controversy when he celebrated his game-winning play to block rival Michael Crabtree from grabbing a game-winning touchdown pass by blasting his opponent right after the game had finished.

He said in an interview with FoxSPORT: 'Well, I'm the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you're gonna get .... Don't you [Crabtree] ever talk about me! Don't you open your mouth about the best or I'm gonna shut it for you real quick.'

Revis believes it was wrong of Sherman, who has since apologised for his actions, to prioritise himself over his team-mates when they had just secured a spot in the Superbowl against the Denver Broncos.

"Don't get me wrong he's an entertainer, but he shouldn't have said that," Revis said Wednesday at the Pro Bowl.

"The reporter asked him a question about the team and he went on to answer about me, me, me, me. So that is how I took it. He didn't answer the question in the right way."

Revis was also unimpressed with Sherman's claim to being the best in the business.

It is what it is, that is Sherman," he said. "That is what he thinks. Everybody has their own opinion."

The 28-year-old added: "I feel like I'm the best. [Pro Bowl coach] Deion Sanders probably feels like he is the best. Everybody has their own personal opinion. And that is how you go with it and I think that is what makes it fun.

"(Sherman is) saying he's the best," Revis continued. "I'm saying I'm the best, Joe Haden thinks he's the best. ...You can go by numbers, you can go by the ball not being thrown to your side so many times, there are so many variables in it. But at the same time, we are all talented players."
