49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, whose team lost to the Seattle Seahawks who are playing in the Super Bowl two Sundays ago, was making the rounds at Radio Row in New York City today because as a player whose team didn’t make the Super Bowl, he has that kind of time. During this media blitz for Kaepernick and his turtleneck, he spoke to a lot of people about, among other things, Richard Sherman and the infamous choke sign that Sherman, whose team is playing in the Super Bowl, directed at Kaep. Talking to the New York Post, Kap said,
“Did that make you feel better about yourself? Then go ahead, because I’m not worried about you,” Kaepernick said, referring to Sherman. “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 [postgame] news conference ended, let’s just say it wasn’t very politically correct.”
Kaep also had something to say about Sherman’s post-game boasting: “As my dad has 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.”
Richard Sherman had no comment as he was busy preparing to play in the Super Bowl, a game Colin Kaepernick does not get to play in this season because of a play Richard Sherman made.
