It has been a busy day for Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman on Twitter.

Earlier Thursday, we saw Sherman and New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount debate who the best cornerback in the game is (not surprisingly, Sherman argued in favor of himself).

Just hours later, outspoken Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall had his say in the matter, arguing that Sherman would have to earn his stripes before he could make such a claim or cash in on a big money contract. 

Update: Saturday, March 15, 11:15 a.m. ET

Hall continued his attack on Sherman on 106.7 The Fan’s Grant & Danny Show, stating that while Sherman is a great cornerback, he doesn't "crack the top three" in the league. He added that he'd put Aqib TalibPatrick Peterson and Darrelle Revis on the NFL's top receivers, who he listed as A.J. Green, Dez Bryant and Calvin Johnson

Hall argued that Sherman does not follow the team's best receiver, as top cornerbacks do, and just stays on one side of the field.

From there, the two went back and forth, disputing stats and who is the more dominant player. 

If only these two lined up against each other on the field.
