Darrelle Revis calls out Richard Sherman for avoiding man-to-man coverage

Darrelle Revis calls out Richard Sherman for avoiding man-to-man coverage

The 49ers cornerback didn't take kindly to some social-media criticism from retired All-Pro corner Darrelle Revis, who questioned Sherman's ability to cover wide receivers man-to-man after the veteran allowed his first completion of 20-plus air yards this season.

It's fair to point out, though, that Sherman has played in a zone coverage scheme fairly often - on both the Seahawks and 49ers. The fact that he doesn't travel as a cornerback is lame.

Moore actually got the chance to play for the Chiefs this season, starting two games for Kansas City mid-season once Patrick Mahomes suffered a dislocated knee cap. Except the challenge as the best and shut Adams down the entire game.

As you'd expect from Sherman, a back-and-forth emerged when the game was over.

Quickly, Tristan Thompson's action was considered a technical foul, his second of the game and was subsequently thrown out. Thompson appeared to clear the air saying after the game that it was just a natural reaction between two former teammates.

Once Sherman was off the field and had access to his phone (and thus his Twitter account), the longtime defensive back conjured up a few responses.

Richard Sherman is not mad, it's just amusing to him. "Enjoy the view from the couch", he contacted Revis. But Sherman is great at what he does, and has had an excellent year on a dominant defense. "I would go in on this has been but I have a Super bowl to prepare for".

While being interviewed on television, Kelce shouted, "I learned one thing since I got here, you gotta fight, for your right, to paar-ty!" a reference to the classic song from the hip-hop group, the Beastie Boys.

Richard Sherman's game-clinching interception from Aaron Rodgers' deep shot for Davante Adams spelt the end for the Green Bay Packers at Levi's Stadium.
