For the record, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has rapidly become one of our favorite players.
He’s also pretty good at football.
Sherman, who made waves with his “U Mad Bro?” tweet of a Tom Brady picture, now has a new target — Jim Harbaugh.
After the 49ers coach complained that Sherman and his secondary mates got away with too much contact, Sherman responded as only he can.
“Sometimes, man, when the bully gets bullied, that’s how that happens,” he said via Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times. “He’s the same guy who said the other guy was irrational and ignorant for talking about the refs.”
That’s in reference to Harbaugh’s previous beef with Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride’s belief that 49ers defensive end Justin Smith gets away with too much contact of his own.
Of course, Harbaugh’s guys got the important shot in by beating the Seahawks 13-6. The only shame is that we have to wait until Dec. 23 for the rematch.
