The back and forth between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks since the NFC Championship game in January has been well documented. From Richard Sherman’s remarks about Michael Crabtree immediately following the game to Sherman’s most recent remarks about the San Frnacisco 49ers wide receiver, there has been a lot of drama surrounding these two teams.
Once 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks took to Twitter to support Crabtree and call out Sherman earlier this week, the drama seemed to pick right back up again.
For his part, Crabtree wants no part of the off-field talk (via NFL.com)
I’ve been doing this for a while, you know…I’ve been playing, I’ve been to the top of the totem pole since high school, you know. So, it’s nothing new to me. Like when I win, it’s no hoorah. I ain’t yelling. You know what I’m saying? I’m used to it. But like I said, I’m getting (tired) talking about these guys. I concentrate on football. I love football. This my life, you know what I’m saying? So, I don’t really have too much to prove when it comes to talking on this TV. But like I said, I’m about it.
Crabtree also seemed to restrain himself on social media, something his teammate Ahmad Brooks couldn’t do.
I want to tweet something gangsta, but I'll keep it PG13..

There is no reason for Crabtree to talk right now. He has nothing to boast about, especially after Sherman’s game-winning interception in the NFC Championship game a few months back.
Instead, the star wide receiver seems ready to do his talking on the field.
Get your popcorn ready, this promises to only get better during the 2014 season.
