We all know Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has a gift for getting under the skin of his opponents. He's done it again, though this time he's drawn the attention of a high-profile star he's never actually shared the field with.
(This is tremendously impressive.)
I never seen a man before run his mouth so much like girl. This dude just steady putting my name in his mouth to get notoriety @rsherman_25- Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) February 20, 2013
Note: We're not sure what caused the Mt. Revis sector of Revis Island to erupt, but we assume it could've been a Bleacher Report video of Sherman running around Bourbon Street during Super Bowl week asking drunk people if he was better than Revis. NFL Network aired a clip of the segment during Sherman's visit to our Los Angeles studio on Friday.
My boy @JohnGeiger_ got more followers then @rsherman_25. Sit down young pup & wait your turn.- Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) February 20, 2013
Note: Geiger is Revis' business manager. Ironically, Sherman's follower count will undoubtedly surge past Geiger's on the strength of Revis' tweets.
@rsherman_25 I ain't your competition bro, @roddywhiteTV is!!!- Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) February 20, 2013
Note: Sherman told ESPN (and Around The League) last week he didn't believe Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White was a top-end wideout. The same White who ran past Sherman for a touchdown in the playoffs last month.
There was a 0.000000000002 percent chance Sherman would ignore Revis' tweets. The odds won.
Got off my flight to this hilarious convo. So I have 8 picks 3 ff and a sack. My season stats looking like Revis career stats- Richard Sherman (RSherman_25) February 20, 2013
For the QB not throwing his way argument. In his 2nd year they were throwing his way. I still doubled his picks- Richard Sherman (RSherman_25) February 20, 2013
