Seahawks' Sherman says he was snubbed by Harbaugh

Elaine Thompson/APSeahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s postgame antics drew plenty of criticism

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman talks a big game and usually backs it up like he did in the Seahawks' 29-3 win over the 49ers on Sunday.

And after the game, Sherman wanted to keep talking, this time with his former coach, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.

But according to Sherman, Harbaugh did not acknowledge him and blew him off around midfield, despite Sherman patting his ex-coach on the rear and saying something.

“I told him good job, good game, but he didn't give me nothing back,” Sherman told NFL Network. “I guess sportsmanship doesn't go both ways.”

Sherman definitely made contact with Harbaugh, but he immediately jogs away, not giving his ex-coach at Stanford much time to react. It does appear that Harbaugh does say something in Sherman's direction.

“I didn't realize it was him until he was moving in the other direction,” Harbaugh said in his postgame news conference. “He came up and patted me on the back, and I congratulated him. Same with Doug [Baldwin] and I congratulate the Seahawks. They played a hell of a game.”
