Darrelle Revis calls out Richard Sherman for avoiding man-to-man coverage

Perhaps Revis missed Sherman's post-game press conference nine days ago, but his Twitter take had all the hallmarks of a retired player doing their best Uncle Rico impression by remembering their golden days.

The confetti of the San Francisco 49ers' NFC championship victory celebration hadn't finished falling before retired National Football League corner Darrelle Revis starting slinging Twitter arrows at Niners corner Richard Sherman.

Fatigue with a fatiguing topic doesn't keep the bright studio lights on, however, so Skip Bayless interjected that traveling with a particular receiver is "much harder" than how Sherman is used in the 49ers' defensive scheme and that the All-Pro cornerback isn't "capable" of shadowing a receiver.

And then there's 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who is also in the discussion. Enjoy the Super Bowl and buckle up because you have to cover this game. Thus far in this year's postseason (two games), Sherman has combined for four tackles, two interceptions, and two passes defended.

Revis emerged from his exile island on Sunday, pursuing Sherman man-to-man for inadequate skills after Packers receiver Davante Adams Sherman burned in the garbage season of the NFC championship game.

Richard Sherman finds motivation in the haters, even when there aren't any.

The San Francisco 49ers cornerback fired back at Darelle Revis.

Sherman seemed to disrespect Revis's ninth season in the NFL.

After being cut from the Seattle Seahawks, Richard Sherman finally fought his way into the 49ers' setup. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs with 53 rushing yards on eight rushes, which really ended up being the difference in the game. "I would go in on this has been but I have a Super bowl to prepare for".
