Seahawks Star Makes Big Play, Talks Bigger

SEATTLE (AP) -- Seconds after making the game-saving play to send Seattle to the Super Bowl, safety Richard Sherman proved he was just warming up.

Sherman deflected a pass intended for San Francisco's Michael Crabtree near the corner of the end zone with less than a minute left, and into the arms of Seattle teammate Malcolm Smith to seal the Seahawks' 23-17. Sherman was subsequently whistled for unsportsmanlike conduct on the play, after exchanging words with Crabtree and making what appeared to be a choking gesture.

Asked about the incident afterward by FOX reporter Erin Andrews, Sherman stole the show and lit up Twitter with a rant that began: "I'm the best corner in the game. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you gonna get. Don't you ever talk about me!"
