Sherman Says “Sorry” For Attack On Crabtree After Title Game Win

Arizona Cardinals v Seattle Seahawks

Richard Sherman has apologized a day after targeting the play of 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree with several harsh rebukes after Sunday night’s NFC Championship win.

Sherman’s deflection of a pass intended for Crabtree in the end zone during the closing minute, which bounced into the grasp of Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith, sealed the 23-17 win over the visiting 49ers to earn Seattle a matchup with the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

“I apologize for attacking an individual and taking the attention away from the fantastic game by my teammates … That was not my intent,” Sherman said Monday in a text message to Ed Werder of ESPN.

Sherman also addressed his postgame comments in an interview Monday with ESPN Radio on the “SVP and Russillo” show.

“Obviously I could have worded things better and could obviously have had a better reaction and done things differently,” he said during the interview. “But it is what it is now, and people’s reactions are what they are.”
