Darrelle Revis was not a fan of Richard Sherman's epic rant during his postgame interview with Erin Andrews of FOX Sports immediately following the Seattle Seahawks' 2014 NFC Championship victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

The Tampa Buccaneers star has been in a beef with Sherman since last season, as both claim they are the best cornerback in the NFL.

After seeing what Sherman did after Seahawks' win last Sunday, which drew mixed reviews, Revis thought of it as an open opportunity to diss his peer. Revis claims that Sherman was selfish and put himself ahead of the team because of the postgame interview.

"I didn't think that was good on his part," he told the Tampa Bay Times. "If you listen to what the reporter asked him, it was nothing about him, it was about the team, and he put himself ahead of the team.

"Other than that, he's an entertainer. … He talks. He probably talks in his sleep. I thought he shouldn't have said all that."

Sherman did apologize for what he did, admitting he was "immature," but he defended himself from being a villain or thug, because he's far from one.

"We're talking about football here, and a lot of people took it further than football. I was on a football field showing passion. Maybe it was misdirected and immature, but this is a football field. I wasn't committing any crimes and doing anything illegal. I was showing passion after a football game.

"It is what it is. Things like that happen and you deal with the adversity. I come from a place where it's all adversity, so what's a little more or people telling you what you can't do. I really was surprised. If I had known it was going to blow up like that I would have approached it differently, just in terms of the way it took away from my teammates. That's the thing I feel regretful about."
