Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had a message for some San Francisco 49ers fans after the team's NFC Championship win Sunday night.

Seattle rallied after the second half.

In the final moments of the game, the 49ers had possession of the ball and trailed by six points. 49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick tried to pass to wide receiver Michael Crabtree in the end zone. Sherman jumped into the air to tip the ball, and linebacker Malcolm Smith came up with the interception.

That play led to a Seahawks victory over San Francisco, with a final score of 23-17.

After the interception, Sherman was seen taunting Crabtree. In a post-game interview with Fox Sports' Erin Andrews, Sherman said, "Well, I'm the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the results you going to get! Don't you ever talk about me!"

Andrews asked, "Who was talking about you?" Sherman replied, "Crabtree! Don't you open your mouth about the best! I'm gonna shut it for you, real quick! L.O.B.!"

L.O.B. stands for "Legion of Boom," Sherman's nickname on the field.

In another post-game interview, Sherman talked about 49ers fans:

"I'd like to thank the fantastic fans of San Francisco, you know? They did a great job. They supported their team, they got nothing to hold their heads about. And then I'd like to say something to the A-hole fans, that write on Facebooks, and Twitters, and Instagrams, and talk crap. Because because we appreciate the motivation. We appreciate it. You helped us win this game, so thank you very much. Appreciate it."

After Sherman's remarks, Crabtree later told reporters, "He's a TV guy. I'm not a TV guy. I play ball. He makes one play, and he talks. Good play."

The Seahawks advance to Super Bowl XLVIII, where they will take on the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The Super Bowl airs at 3:30 p.m. Feb. 2 on KBFX, Fox 58.
