Darrelle Revis takes shots at Richard Sherman via Twitter; Sherman, of course, responds

Richard Sherman likes to talk (not that you needed anyone to tell you that), and Richard Sherman is rather confident in his ability (again, nothing groundbreaking here), and even though he has backed up that talk with his play on the field, the Seahawks’ All-Pro cornerback sometimes gets under the skin of his opponents (paging Tom Brady. Mr. Brady, please pick up the white courtesy phone).

Well now it appears we can add Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis to the list of non-Sherman fans in the NFL. Revis and Sherman haven’t had any on-field issues with each other, but apparently Revis doesn’t like Sherman comparing himself to the man most consider to be the best corner in the NFL in recent years. Sherman has on more than one occasion taken to Twitter to compare his stats through two seasons to those of Revis, and while in New Orleans, he walked around Bourbon Street to ask fans who was better, Revis or Sherman (with most fans not knowing the man asking the question was, in fact, Richard Sherman). Watch the video below, it’s pretty funny stuff.

Here’s what Revis had to say on Twitter today about Sherman:

And wouldn’t you know it, Sherman had something to say back. If you’re on Twitter, folks, give both players a follow. This could be fun.

Also, here’s the video mentioned above.
