10:14 AM ET 01.25 | Darrelle Revis, who previously had gotten into Twitter battles with Sherman, had one major critique of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. "Don't get me wrong he's an entertainer, but he shouldn't have said that," Revis said Wednesday at the Pro Bowl. "The reporter asked him a question about the team and he went on to answer about me, me, me, me. So that is how I took it. He didn't answer the question in the right way." Revis didn't sound surprised that Sherman would shout to the world that he is the NFL's best cornerback. "It is what it is, that is Sherman," he said. "That is what he thinks. Everybody has their own opinion." And what is Revis' opinion on the topic? "I feel like I'm the best," he said. "Deion Sanders probably feels like he is the best. Everybody has their own personal opinion. And that is how you go with it and I think that is what makes it fun. "(Sherman is) saying he's the best," Revis continued. "I'm saying I'm the best, Joe Haden thinks he's the best. ...You can go by numbers, you can go by the ball not being thrown to your side so many times, there are so many variables in it. But at the same time, we are all talented players."

Gawd, I am anxious for this crap to go away. I'd love to see real discussions about the upcoming game, but all I see is reactions to Sherman. At this point I'm really pissed at the guy for hijacking the storyline from his own team.

I'm sorry, what did Darrelle Revis do the last two years? I don't believe he's fully recovered from the injury he suffered in 2012. And I also don't believe he deserved to be in the Pro Bowl this year.

In Richard Sherman you've got a guy who picked off 8 passes in 2013 & 2012. Plus three fumble recoveries during that time span.

Revis is going to need to make a lot of big plays next year to keep up in this arms race.

It does not take much for the media to lose focus.

I guess I can always hope Lawrence Taylor will get caught with under-aged girls again.

As if the Scots didn't need another reason to drink. At least the Bard is a worthy one to toast.
