Sherman: “No regrets” over Twitter beef with Revis

One subplot to Sunday’s Seattle-Tampa Bay game is that it will mark the first time Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis have been on the same field since their Twitter battle during the off-season (details of that here and here).

In fact, the two have never met.

Each, though, took pains to downplay any supposed feud when they met the media today.

Sherman said “I don’t have any regrets about anything” concerning his back-and-forth with Revis.

But then he called Revis “a good player” and said “he’s having a good year. I don’t think he’s very happy with the way they are using him in the scheme, playing a lot of Cover Two and making him play off. I think he’s much better when he’s man-to-man. I think every corner that has any pride about himself wants to be in man-to-man situations and be able to do what he can do.”

Asked if he looked forward to being able to compare himself to Revis Sunday, Sherman  downplayed that as well, saying “I don’t know if it will be a direct comparison. It’s not like we are on the field at the same time. I’m not playing receiver.”

Revis, meanwhile, spoke similarly in Tampa, as you can read in a few Tweets below:

Here’s some video of Sherman’s meeting with the media today:
