Sherman denied Crabtree a touchdown in the dying seconds of the Seahawks' 23-17 win over the 49ers last night before calling him a "mediocre" player and claiming that he wouldn't make it into the top 20 receivers in the NFL.
Crabtree responded by saying that Sherman's final play was the only good thing that he had done all game and added more to his rebuttal later in the evening.
While not replying directly to Crabtree, Sherman responded with a thinly-veiled tweet of his own to reiterate his opinion that he was a class above the 49ers receiver.
"A lion doesn't concern himself with the opinions of a sheep. There was a lot of talk before the game.... Now I'm the bad guy lol.... Well if u judge my character on the field ....So many glass houses," Sherman wrote on Twitter.
The result saw the Seahawks progress into the Super Bowl, where they will face the Denver Broncos on February 2.
