Sherman loses it on TV, Crabtree says 'you made one play'

At least in Sherman's eyes.
Earlier in the week, Crabtree was asked if Sherman was the best cornerback in the league during a media session. Crabtree answered "No, I don't think so".
Naturally, the game would come down to Sherman swatting away a potential game-winning touchdown pass to Crabtree. The tipped ball resulted in an interception and a 49ers loss in the NFC Championship Game.
And Sherman delivered a postgame interview that will live in infamy:
Crabtree's response? "You make one play and you talk? Good play," He said to reporters after the game. He then took his rant to Twitter:
Sherman, of course took the bait...

Looks like we'll have to wait until next year for the next installment of what has become one of the best rivalries in the NFL.
