San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick blasted Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in an interview with the New York Post, saying the latter's comments after the NFC Championship Game "were ridiculous."

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick thinks Richard Sherman's comments after the NFC Championship Game were ridiculous. 

This is precisely what he said in an exclusive interview with Bart Hubbuch of The New York Post on Jan. 30. Kaepernick was in town to promote an energy drink known as SK. The interview took place at the Super Bowl XLVIII media center. 

In the article, Hubbuch starts off by tracing the root causes: Sherman's controversial post-game interview with Erin Andrews where he blasts Kaepernick's teammate, wide receiver Michael Crabtree, and Sherman doing a choke sign in reference to Kaepernick at the end of that game. 

"I think everyone knows his comments were ridiculous. 

"As my dad always told me, 'If you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you, really?' 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."

With Seattle leading 23-17, Sherman deflected a pass from Kaepernick intended for Crabtree with just 18 seconds left in the contest. The ball eventually landed in the hands of Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith for the interception. 

Game over. 

Hubbuch stresses Sherman "taunted Kaepernick with the choke sign because Sherman was insulted Kaepernick had even dared to throw in his direction." Kaepernick then says had he made the necessary adjustment on his pass, it would have been a touchdown, making Sherman the goat instead of the hero. 

"I don't care who's out there. I had Crabtree one-on-one with half of the field to himself, and I'm going to take that 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. The inches were in (Sherman's) favor in that case, but this game will humble you very quickly."

On the subject of the blown pass, Kaepernick told ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning Show" on Jan. 30 he could have made a better one. 

"I'm going to play to win. I'm going to try and make those plays. If you gave me that last pass 10 times, I'm going to take it 10 times over again.

"Now, do I wish I would have thrown a better ball? If it's a foot farther, we're playing this weekend and not Seattle. To me, it's not a bad decision by me. It's something physically I have to get better at. I have to make a better throw at that position."

And what about Sherman's choke sign?

"Did that make you feel better about yourself? Then go ahead, because I'm not worried about you. I'm just worried about winning games and helping us get to the Super Bowl. 

"I can't get insulted by something that ridiculous coming from somebody like that. From the time that (championship-game final) play ended to the time his (post-game) news conference ended, let's just say it wasn't politically correct.

"I'll take that matchup every day. I feel like he's afraid of our receivers, and that's something I look forward to (exploiting) next year." 

He also said he's looking forward to continuing the brewing rivalry against the Seahawks in the years to come, per the ESPN interview. 

"We're going to come out and play football against you next year. It's a great rivalry for the NFL. It's going to be a tough game -- I think both teams know that going in. I do have a lot of friends on the Seahawks still. When we finished the game, I said,'Good job, good luck in the Super Bowl.'

"But at the same time, when we step on the field, we know it's business."

Regarding an offseason contract extension, the 49ers quarterback told ESPN he will leave that concern to his agent. For now, it's all about becoming a better player and leader on the field.

"For me, more importanly, it's stepping on the field and having my teammates trust and confidence that I'm going to make plays and help our team win games."

In the same interview, Kaepernick also said he won't be watching Super Bowl XLVIII which pits Sherman's Seahawks against the Denver Broncos. The 49ers play caller said Denver should have an advantage if they attack Seattle's vaunted secondary with surgical precision. 

And who's he rooting for?

He told Hubbuch,"Go Peyton!"

49ers-Broncos final score: It is far from the end of the world

Oct 20 2014 7:55am CDT | Source: ninersnation

The 49ers lost an ugly one in Week 7, but I just can't get overly concerned about it. The injuries are concerning, but other than that, the 49ers head into the bye week in a solid position. The San Francisco 49ers took one on the chin Sunday evening, dropping an ugly 42-17 loss to the Denver Broncos. Anytime you get beaten like that, there is a certain level of embarrassment.

How would the Broncos respond after last week's C+ performance? This, Broncos Country, is what an "A" effort by the Denver Broncos looks like, and it was against a quality opponent nonetheless! The score was lopsided, but the harsh reality for the 49ers was that the game wasn't even as close as the ridiculously lopsided score was. Holy cow was this a complete 180 degree difference from last week's victory. ...
