Darrelle Revis has said that he thinks he is a better cornerback than Richard Sherman.

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Sherman announced that he was the best in the league in a post-game outburst following the team's win in the NFC championship game.

However, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers player told reporters: "I feel like I'm the best. Deion Sanders probably feels like he is the best. Everybody has their own personal opinion. And that is how you go with it and I think that is what makes it fun.

"[Sherman is] saying he's the best. I'm saying I'm the best, Joe Haden thinks he's the best. You can go by numbers, you can go by the ball not being thrown to your side so many times, there are so many variables in it. But at the same time, we are all talented players.

"Don't get me wrong he's an entertainer, but he shouldn't have said that. The reporter asked him a question about the team and he went on to answer about me, me, me, me. So that is how I took it. He didn't answer the question in the right way. It is what it is, that is Sherman. That is what he thinks. Everybody has their own opinion."

Sherman finished the regular season with 48 tackles and eight interceptions, while Revis made 50 tackles, a sack, two forced fumbles and two interceptions.
