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 vs. Cardinals: Complete Week 3 Preview for San Francisco

The San Francisco 49ers have a recent history of inconsistency at the start of each season during the Jim Harbaugh era. In 2011, Harbaugh and the 49ers got off to a 1-1 start to the season.

Jason: So, this week has turned into quite the cluster. It makes one long for the halcyon days when we could have a debate about whether Eli Manning was elite. The constant onslaught of news related to Adrian Peterson or Ray Rice or Roger Goodell has done one thing: completely dried up crazy takes on what happens on the field. I feel like Colin Kaepernick, for one, would have been skewered for that performance and draw ...

The Arizona Cardinals will look to improve to 3-0 for the second time in three years when they host the San Francisco 49ers, who are coming off a disappointing loss when they disintegrated on Sunday Night Football. The Cardinals started 4-0 in 2012 before dropping 11 of 12 games, and they will be facing a San Francisco team on Sunday that blew a 17-0 lead in a 28-20 home loss to the Chicago Bears as a seven-point home favorite to even its record at 1-1. The 49ers have do ...
