Ahmad Brooks sticks up for Michael Crabtree, has a message for Richard Sherman

Ahmad Brooks San Francisco 49ers

It’s the best rivalry in American professional sports, and at this point it isn’t even close. You can have your Red Sox vs. Yankees, Heat vs. Pacers, even your Giants vs. Dodgers or Giants vs. Athletics. When it comes to the kind of animosity that only arises when two really good teams spend a few years fighting for the same thing, NOTHING beats 49ers vs. Seahawks.

Trent Baalke hates the Seahawks. Jim Harbaugh and Pete Carroll can’t stand each other. Seahawks players have shown a desire to beat the living hell out of Harbaugh in the past. And if the fact that neither team can seem to conquer the other’s home stadium isn’t enough, Richard Sherman refuses to shut up about Michael Crabtree.

Ahmad Brooks is a man of relatively few words, and tweets — under 200, and he joined Twitter four years ago. After a five-day break, Brooks’ Twitter silence was broken on Wednesday night in a big way.

The use of “em” creates some ambiguity … but that didn’t last long.

I wrote about how Sherman is quickly becoming a target of scorn for some of the NFL’s best cornerbacks, who don’t appreciate the Seahawks All-Pro’s boasts about being the best corner in the game. Just like Darrelle Revis, DeAngelo Hall and Patrick Peterson, Brooks won’t get a chance to really see Sherman on the field. I guess he will literally, but tackling Sherman would probably result in a penalty and/or suspension for Brooks.

He was allowed to do this last year, though:

As of 3 am PST (I’m writing this from Hawaii), Sherman hasn’t responded. But Brooks’ comments got everyone riled up on Twitter, and you could almost see Brooks smiling and shaking his head while leaning back in some expensive leather chair, watching the mentions pile up on his phone.

That’s true, but the rivalry deserves some credit as well.

Ahmad has said enough.  The field is where it ends.  I like the class that Crabtree is showing by not saying anything.  I would love for Crabtree to go and have a breakout game against Sherman.  I think it will happen too.  He may not have breakaway speed, but Crabs runs great routes.  As long as the ball is there, he will catch it.  It’s time to shut this dude up.  He needs to humble himself.

rdavisjr418 I agree.  I don’t think it’s possible to beat Sherman at his own trash talking game because, unfortunately, he has no shame.  The high road is definitely where it’s at.  I will enjoy seeing the 49ers not only win the Super Bowl this year, but also do it with a measure of class the Seahawks can’t seem to muster.

Its good that the Niners and their fans have a team to get worked up about. Makes the season a lot more enjoyable

I am wondering if by the way Sherman keeps on talking about Crabtree if he has a serious case of man love for Crabs? The NFC title game was back in January and the original altercation happened about a year ago and yet Sherman keeps on yapping while Crabtree is being the consummate professional and not saying anything. Sherman needs to grow up and start acting like an adult instead of some kid on a play ground. His acts of immaturity are getting real old quick.

Best Rivalry in the NFL. But Crabtree is overrated, and The hawks have the best defense in the NFL and youngest and are only getting better. I couldn’t even name one 49ers CB who is even as good as Byron Maxwell… our CB2…

@SeahawksoverNiners The only person who overrates Michael Crabtree is Richard Sherman.

That’s cool, I can’t name one linebacker on the Seahawks better than Willis or Bowman.

I can’t say that Crabs is overrated, and I surely can’t say that their corners outside of Sherman are better either. I can say that we will find out. The Seahawks won the Super Bowl and that’s all great and good, but they shouldn’t get ahead of themselves. It’s a long road back, and there’s only 6 teams in NFL History that repeated. They have to be special. What happens if Lynch goes down, or WHEN Harvin goes down? Sherman tweaks an ankle and has to sit a game or 2, what happens? Earl Thomas can’t guard everybody. Maxwell can’t… Read more »

Crab may be a tad overrated given that he’s fragile and lacks deep heat, but Sherman shot off his mouth after playing him after major surgery. Wouldn’t count on him shutting Crab out this year, especially if refs use the rule book. If Sherman is sensitive about being called a thug, wait till he gets into it with Brooks, who could care less if he gets called a thug. He’ll find him in the tunnel, or invite him out for a beer. BTW there are plenty of offensive guys who could silence Sherman: Boone, Staley, Davis, Q, Miller, hell even… Read more »

Hmmm your secondary was the only good thing about your entire team. You list players for more money and the sea hawks didn’t do anyhing in the draft. You’re definitely not getting better.

erikh it’s Sharmane that’s worked up on King Crab baby all year round this sucka-ass dreaming about Crab – leting the world know, he’s sweet on Crabtree, hitting the ass, touching his head, and talking about Crabtree everytime he’s on television.  why don’t Richard sherman come out of the closet and say he’s Rickia Sharmane Dish and perform he/r ragity ass on stage for a living because he’s a loud ass fruit cake

So I’m a lifelong Seahawks fan – I love the Hawks, love Carroll, Schneider, and the whole organisation. I love Sherman, and the whole LOB. I love our offense. I love Seattle. What a team. BUT, I am sick of Sherman running his mouth. I’m sure he’s only doing it to keep a competitive edge alive that will do away with the ‘madden curse’. He wants to stay driven, and this is the best way he knows how. But honestly, it’s now the 14/15 season, and we have to leave last year behind… Especially with a ferocious 49ers on our… Read more »

Sherman has bigger concerns than with Crabtree. He is pissing off a lot of other people aswell. If i was him i would be watching out for my knees.

Sherman almost makes me feel sorry for the Seahawk fans. Shermans mouth is so big he doesn’t need any hands to catch the football.

Richard Sherman is living up to the real meaning of his name.(Dick).

TeeJay2 erikh I think Sharmane needs to open up about his feelings.  Then maybe he won’t be so angry all the time.
