Richard Sherman's postgame lambasting of Michael Crabtree sent the entire NFL community into a tizzy.

The storyline even made its way out to Hawaii.


During a press conference Tuesday for the 2014 Pro Bowl Draft, legendary wide receiver Jerry Rice was asked who had the better rivalry: Sherman and Crabtree or Rice and Deion Sanders.

Predictably, the Hall of Famer scoffed at the comparison.

"Crabtree versus Richard Sherman? Come on man, that is not even close," Rice said.

The NFL's greatest wide receiver said Sanders provided the ultimate competition.

"Whenever I had to go up against Deion, I could not sleep," Rice said. "We talk about this now, and Deion, the same, he could not sleep, because we knew the magnitude of that rivalry and we wanted to go out there and play our best football. It was a mano-a-mano against each other. I respected him."
