RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says he’s surprised his interview after the NFC championship game became the focus, following two days of reaction to his post-game comments.

Sherman again apologized for his shouting, emotional postgame interview that took attention away from the performances of his teammates in Sunday’s 23-17 win over San Francisco.

Sherman was the subject of criticism and support following his postgame rant that came just a few minutes after he deflected a pass intended for San Francisco’s Michael Crabtree and that was intercepted by teammate Malcolm Smith in the end zone to clinch the win.

Sherman was mic’d up for the game by the NFL and the league has released a “Sound FX” clip of the minutes following the dramatic play. The audio clearly shows Sherman approaching Crabtree, offering a handshake, and telling him “Good game.” Crabtree clearly doesn’t want to hear any of it.

Sherman and Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson spoke to media this week, where Sherman again apologized, saying his intention was not to take the focus of the efforts of his teammates.
