Richard Sherman Gets Very Honest About 49ers Loss To Chiefs
Richard Sherman got very honest about the 49ers loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
Heading into Super Bowl LIV, the match-up to watch was clear. It was going to be a battle of Kansas City’s epic offense against San Francisco’s stout defense.
If the Niners were going to win, they needed to figure out a way to slow down Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
If Kansas City was going to win, Mahomes needed to outplay the 49ers’ defense.
Ultimately, when it was all said and done, Mahomes ended up killing San Francisco’s defense in the fourth quarter en route to his first championship.
After the game, Sherman took to Twitter to offer his thoughts on what transpired.
Proud of this team! Wasn’t the result we wanted but we battled through. I wasn’t good enough tonight and I will fix that. Thank you for all the support all year.

Although the star cornerback clearly was not happy with the final outcome, he was still proud of what the 49ers accomplished.
“Proud of this team,” he wrote.
“Wasn’t the result we wanted but we battled through. I wasn’t good enough tonight and I will fix that. Thank you for all the support all year.”
Sherman recorded five tackles in the losing effort – good for fifth most on the squad.
Unfortunately, he also amassed zero passes defended.
On one particularly egregious lapse, Sherman got burned by wide receiver Sammy Watkins in the fourth quarter on a big reception.
Sherman also failed to take down Damien Williams on the touchdown that gave Kansas City its lead in the fourth quarter.
