Richard Sherman is coming off a Pro Bowl season, but not everyone is impressed.

Put former cornerback Darrelle Revis in that camp. Citing a play in which Sherman got beat down the field by Davante Adams, the seven-time Pro Bowler called it “lame” that Sherman doesn’t follow around the other team’s best receiver and plays in a zone scheme. He said that Sherman is afraid of getting beat in man-to-man coverage.

Obviously when Sherman was alerted to these comments he fired back. Yes, it was personal.

“I would go in on this has been but I have a Super Bowl to prepare for,” Sherman tweeted. “Enjoy the view from the couch. Your ninth year looked a lot different than this. Lmao”

Sherman also took the opportunity to correct Revis’ grammar.

“And it’s ‘Accept’. Thought I would give you a lesson while I was here”

Richard Sherman is a five-time Pro Bowler and will play in his third Super Bowl on February 2.
