Today is National Draft Day:

Colin Kaepernick fires back at Richard Sherman

National Football Post

For the first time since the NFC Championship game, 49ers Colin Kaepernick went on the record about Richard Sherman's post-game rant and actions that took place on the football field.

Speaking to the New York Post's Bart Hubbuch, whotweeted Kapernick's comments out, Kaepernick was unhappy about it to say the least.

First there's this: "Did that make you feel better about yourself? Then go ahead. Because I’m not worried about you."

Then this: "His comments were ridiculous. If you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?"

And here's another: "He's afraid of our receivers, and that's something I'm looking forward to [exploiting] next year."

And finally: "If I throw that ball one foot farther, it's a TD and now you're the goat, Richard Sherman."

But the problem is Kaepernick didn't throw that ball one foor farther. As a result, Sherman got his hand on the ball and Seattle won the game.

But moments like this make the NFL great. Seattle and San Francisco are emerging as one of the league's better rivalries and it could be something to keep an eye on for years to come.
