Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but Richard Sherman likes to talk trash. A lot. And he’s been pretty vocal lately about his place among the league’s best cornerbacks. The bravado ramped up in New Orleans during Super Bowl week, when he took to Bourbon Street to ask regular people whether he or Darrelle Revis was the best in the league. On Wednesday, it spilled on to Twitter. And Revis shot back.

Sherman was asked by a fan during an impromptu Q&A session the same question, whether he or Revis was the best. Sherman offered his typically honest take, Revis responded directly, Sherman responded to that, and pretty much everyone else on Twitter stepped aside, grabbed their popcorn, and watched the fun unfold.

And now you can do the same, if you missed it in real-time. Follow the entertaining back-and-forth below.

By Revis logic Tebow must be the best QB in the league due to his massive following. I wonder why he cant get on the field? Revis is a great player but he wasnt great last year, he was out. Fact. It would have been a pleasant suprise if he had taken a higher road, congratulated Shreman on a great year, and reminded him that Revis Island will be open for visitors again in early September should anyone care to test the water.

I don't like the Jets but i gotta go with Revis on this one. Matt Ryan made Sherman his Bioch in the playoffs. I've never seen anyone do that to Revis.

Revis will always be better based on the simple fact that he was never busted for taking drugs.

Im no fan of Sherman's, but Revis was stupid for getting into that. Sherman didn't even say anything particularly controversial, and Revis had to know where the convo would end up. Dumb.
