Everyone has seen it by now. We'll just refer to it as the Richard Sherman postgame interview. And while Sherman said that their beef stems from something Michael Crabtree said to him during the offseason, people still want to know what the Seahawks cornerback told Crabtree following the tipped pass that landed in the hands of Malcolm Smith and subsequently ended the game. Now, we have the answer.
Just a short while ago, Showtime aired their latest episode of Inside the NFL and what do you know, Sherman and Crabtree were both mic'd up during the NFC Championship Game.
