Seahawks' Richard Sherman Slays Jets' Darrelle Revis in Twitter Feud

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterFebruary 20, 2013

It might be the NFL offseason, but shutdown cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis are getting after it.

While there is certainly a heated debate about who is the better corner, there is no question the Seahawks star talked a better game in Wednesday's impromptu Twitter feud. 

If you want to know how amazing the latest Twitter kerfuffle was, consider this tweet from ESPN's Michael Smith

*Pulls up chair and grabs popcorn for this @rsherman_25 and @revis24 twitter beef*

NFL fans probably huddled around their smart phones and computers with the type of giddiness relegated to the first game of the season. 

Richard Sherman @RSherman_25

@rpchudgar @revis24 he didn't play this year so when he does then he will be in it

It all started with a seemingly innocuous question from Raj Chudgar during a Twitter Q&A session. From there, it was on. Revis quickly fired back, and the two kept trying to one-up each other. 

Darrelle Revis @Revis24

I never seen a man before run his mouth so much like girl. This dude just steady putting my name in his mouth to get notoriety @rsherman_25

Richard Sherman @RSherman_25

Darrelle Revis @Revis24

Darrelle Revis @Revis24

Darrelle Revis @Revis24

Darrelle Revis @Revis24

Richard Sherman @RSherman_25

Got off my flight to this hilarious convo. So I have 8 picks 3 ff and a sack. My season stats looking like Revis career stats

Richard Sherman @RSherman_25

For the QB not throwing his way argument. In his 2nd year they were throwing his way. I still doubled his picks

If you're scoring at home, Sherman came away as the victor with his cutting barbs, while Revis lost the battle with his dismissiveness.

This is not the first time Sherman has compared himself to the star corner otherwise known as "Revis Island." Back in January, he tweeted this out.

Of course, there was this Bleacher Report video that proves Sherman, above all else, has an amazing sense of humor. 

If smack talk isn't your thing, you football fanatics can dive into wonderful comparative piece from Pro Football Focus over who the truly better corner is. 

There are some athletes who delight with their amazing talent and others who entertain with vibrant personalities. Sherman is both, and he may just talk the best game in the NFL.
