Richard Sherman and Michael Crabtree Mic’d Up For NFC Championship Game (Videos)

Richard Sherman shake Michael Crabtree's hand

Upon hearing that Richard Sherman and Michael Crabtree were mic’d up for their battle during Sunday’s NFC Championship Game between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers, you’d probably assume that their mics captured all sorts of interesting sound bites prior to Sherman’s now-epic post-game rant (or should we say, “rants“).

Unfortunately, you’d be wrong.

While Sherman and Crabtree may have been doing their fair share of talking throughout the course of the game, neither of the two ever seemed to direct their comments toward the other until Sherman approached Crabtree at the end of the game to shake his hand and tell him, “hell of a game”—right before taking a shove to the face from the 49ers wide receiver.

Until then, things appeared to be quite tame between the two.  You can have a look (and a listen) at their sound bites in the videos below:
