49ers’ Richard Sherman says Darrelle Revis ‘thinks more of himself than the world thinks of him’

Jan 20, 2020 at 1:46 PM--

Darrelle Revis has won a Super Bowl. So has Richard Sherman. Revis has been selected to seven Pro Bowls and is a four-time first-team All-Pro. Sherman, who is in his ninth NFL season and still has work to do, has been selected to five Pro Bowls and is a three-time first-team All-Pro.

The two got in a bit of a social-media spat after Sherman's San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game to advance to Super Bowl LIV. Revis criticized Sherman's play on Sunday, and of course, Sherman responded. And he did so in classic Sherman form.

Sherman on Monday joined Rich Eisen on the Rich Eisen Show and was asked about the exchange with Revis, and if there was any previous beef between the two future Hall of Famers.

"It's one of those where a guy who thinks more of himself than the world thinks of him, and feels like I'm getting more credit than I deserve, or something like that," Sherman told Eisen. "Obviously, his stats don't match my stats, so he tries to find other ways to make himself relevant in the conversation."

Sherman added: "Like I said before, I just do what the game plan is. I play the game plan and do what my coach tells me to do, regardless. I don't give a damn. He acts like he called the plays in defenses he played in. He didn't. Just like his year in Tampa when they were playing zone, he was getting cooked up, but it was like, 'Oh my God, that's not the system for him.' When you're a great corner, whatever system you're playing is the system for you."

Eisen and Sherman also discuss the cornerback advancing to his third Super Bowl, when he knew this team was capable of competing for a championship, running back Raheem Mostert, the NFL wanting a 17-game regular-season schedule for each team, and he previews the matchup in two weeks against the Kansas City Chiefs.

At some point, Richard Sherman will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He'll have to wait until five years after retirement to do so, and some wonder when the San Francisco 49ers' veteran cornerback will decide to call it a career. It sounds like that will be after the 2023 season. And Sherman hopes to continue playing for the 49ers. "I do believe that I have good years left in me," Sherman told reporters after Thursday's practice. "I'm only going to play three after this. That's what the wife (Ashley) told me. I don't call any shots after that. "Three years after this, if the good San Francisco 49ers would love to keep me on this ball club, I'd love to be here. But after that, I'm going to go into the booth." Sherman is entering his

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided several injury updates. Among them was news that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will start in place of Richard Sherman this weekend against the New York Jets. Sherman was placed on short-term injured reserve this week and will miss at least the next three games. Lynch did note that his calf strain is unrelated to his previous Achilles injury. The general manager saw Sherman after the game and noted, "It wasn't pretty the way he was walking." That, along with discussions with Sherman, led the 49ers to sideline the All-Pro cornerback for a few games. Witherspoon will fill in for the veteran cornerback and play

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh spoke with reporters after Thursday's practice as his team prepares for its Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. When you look at the Cardinals offense and the fact that they were able to run the ball so effectively, particularly after getting Arizona Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake last year despite using a lot of three or four wide receiver sets. Why do you think that it is and how difficult is it to defend an offense like that given that they like to spread defenses out? "Give them credit. They've got a good system. They've evolved as the course of the year went
