Richard Sherman: I don't answer preschool questions

PHOENIX -- It didn't take long for Richard Sherman to make one point very clear in the lead-up to Super Bowl XLIX: He doesn't want to answer the cornerback question.

Seattle's All-Pro cover man systematically shot down repeated inquiries on Sunday about where he ranks with his foil from New England, Pro Bowl Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis.

"I don't measure my game to anybody's, so I don't have a great answer for that question," Sherman told one reporter at Seattle's introductory press conference on Sunday. "I think my game measures up pretty well to myself."

Unhappy with Sherman's reply, the intrepid scribe doubled down, asking: "Do you still think you're the best corner in the league? You've said that before."

Sherman paused, before launching a verbal fireball, telling the man: "I don't really answer preschool questions, so you improve your line of questioning, and we'll talk."

He'll be here all week, folks. And so will we.
