Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman knows how big their rivalry is with the 49ers. He said he’s not sure if the teams will even exchange handshakes with one another.
“There’s no love lost and there’s no love found,” said Sherman via ESPN.com. “I don’t know if there’s going to be handshakes after this one. It’s going to be intense and it’s going to be physical.”
Sherman was asked if he hates the 49ers.
“I don’t hate anyone,” Sherman said. “But passion, definitely. There’ll be dislike, strong dislike. It’s playoff football, so there’ll be a lot of intensity, anyway, even if we weren’t two teams very familiar with each other. But there’s going to be a lot of chippiness in a hard-fought game. The two best teams in the NFC are the ones that are here.”
