The 25-year-old believes that his outburst took the shine of a great team win by his side as they overcame a deficit at half time to beat the 49ers in the NFC championship game to reach the Super Bowl.
"It was a heated moment, it was an intense moment, just made a big play and our team just won a huge game," Sherman told NBC Sports. "I'm a little frustrated by the attention that's not being paid to my teammates. Marshawn Lynch had an incredible game. Earl Thomas had a great game.
"James Carpenter, our D-line, Bobby Wagner had 15 tackles, Doug Baldwin had over 100 yards. I just feel like it's unfortunate that all those things are being overshadowed by what's going on. That's why I apologised, because I think my teammates deserved better."
The Seahawks will face the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium on February 2.
