It only took 11 days, but Colin Kaepernick has finally responded to Richard Sherman's infamous rant and the choke gesture directed at the 49ers quarterback. In a series of tweets from the New York Post's Bart Hubbuch, we got a chance to see what type of rebuttal Kaepernick had for Sherman. Check it out below: 

In a story published later on, Hubbuch expanded with other quotes from Kaepernick regarding Sherman's postgame comments, saying, “If you have to go on national TV and try to say you’re the best cornerback in the league, then you’ve got your own insecurities.” Kap also wanted to make it clear that given the one-on-one matchup with Crabtree at the time, he would take that situation every single time. “He made a good play on that ball, but if I throw it a foot farther, it’s a touchdown and now you’re the goat, Richard Sherman. “It’s a game of inches,” Kaepernick added. “The inches were in [Sherman’s] favor in that case, but this game will humble you very quickly.”

Unfortunately, those people who are fascinated by the beef between the Seahawks and 49ers will probably need to wait until next season to see how Sherman responds to Kaepernick's comments. After all, Sherman and the 'Hawks have more important things to worry about, namely the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.
