Seahawks’ Richard Sherman: 49ers Fans Are “Mediocre”

Sharp words from Seahawks' skilled and sharp-witted Stanford grad.

You can taunt him, you can criticize his attitude and his demeanor -- you can even hurl glass bottles Richard Sherman's way.

The Seattle Seahawks' talented cornerback and nemesis of the San Francisco 49ers -- who saw Sherman put their season in jeopardy with his two interceptions in their 19-3 loss Thanksgiving Day -- will take it all in stride, and deem you mediocre.

Sherman, whose game-ending play in last year's 2013 NFC title game led to an on-camera rant that went viral and did not endear himself to 49ers fans, took another swipe at San Francisco's fan base on Thursday.

Many 49ers fans began trudging to the Levi's Stadium exits in the third quarter of the 49ers' primetime loss, a fact Sherman remarked upon after the game, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

"I waved goodbye," he said, before applying a label to 49ers fans in general.

Subpar. Unremarkable. Just plain-old "mediocre," the newspaper reported.

After setting up  the game's only touchdown with an interception of a Colin Kaepernick pass, Sherman issued a "stern warning" to the 49ers sideline not to throw his way again.

If the 49ers did, Sherman would end the game, he said.

And he did.

After the game, Sherman took a bite out of a Thanksgiving turkey, set up on a table conveniently located at midfield atop the 49ers' logo.

The 49ers visit Seattle and Sherman on Dec. 14.
