If you know anything about Richard Sherman besides his All-Pro caliber defensive skills on the gridiron, it's that he's never been one to diplomatically hold his tongue when a hot mic or camera is in his face. Just ask Michael Crabtree or Skip Bayless.
The Seahawks cornerback has a new target for his vitriol, and this time it's Seattle ESPN 710 AM radio station co-host Jim Moore of the Dan, Dave, and Moore Show.
According to the Seattle Times, Moore and Sherman had a brief discussion on the show Tuesday about his postgame remarks in a press conference regarding a play call in the closing seconds of the third quarter during the Seahawks' game against the Rams last Thursday, Dec. 15th. The Seahawks were at the 1-yard line, and the team's offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell called on Russell Wilson to execute a pass play to tight end Jimmy Graham, which was intercepted. Although the Seahawks ultimately beat the Rams 24-3, the play call pissed Sherman off because it was too reminiscent of how they lost Super XLIX to the Patriots. Sherman even screamed at the Seahawks coaching staff for the blunder, and then spoke to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll about it in a private meeting after the game.
Moore asked Sherman on the radio show if he had a better plan for the play than the one that was called by Bevell. Sherman replied, "No, I just had a, we had a prior experience [the Super Bowl] so we talked about it." He continued, "But let me guess—you have a better play to call. Let me guess, you have a better experience.''
After Moore claimed that he did not, Sherman told him, "then you should probably kind of stop.''
Sherman didn't end his rant against Moore there, though. He threatened Moore that the radio host did "not want to go there." Sherman added, "You do not. I'll ruin your career." After Moore asked Sherman how he'll do so, the Seahawks star said, "I'll make sure you don't get your media pass anymore."

Sherman tweeted an apology after practice on Tuesday.
