      Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis dial down feud USA TODAY Sports 10:33 p.m. EDT October 31, 2013sherm_zps013659c1.jpg(Photo: Mark J. Rebilas, USA TODAY Sports)RENTON, Wash. – Richard Sherman and Darrelle Revis must have used up all their best trash talking on Twitter.The star cornerbacks will get a chance Sunday to settle their who-is-the-best-cornerback feud when their teams play in Seattle. Until then, they swapped pleasantries in their Thursday press conferences – quite a change from their offseason social media battle.Back in February, Sherman used his 2012 statistics to back up his claim that he's the NFL's best cornerback, a title that Revis had arguably held for years. Back and forth they went, exchanging barbs and veiled insults."No regrets about anything," Sherman said Thursday. "He's a good player, and he's having a good year."Revis, at his own media session in played nice, even calling Sherman, "A great player in this league," according to the Tampa Bay Times.Sherman has the numbers, both individually and as a team, on his side now, with four interceptions and 11 pass breakups in eight games for the 7-1 Seahawks. Revis has one interception and six pass breakups for the winless Buccaneers.Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano this week defended the way the Bucs have used Revis – playing more zone coverage instead of press and man-to-man coverage, how Revis excelled for years with the New York Jets.Sherman could understand if Revis is frustrated."I think he's much better when he's man to man. I think any corner that has any pride about himself wants to be in man-to-man situations," Sherman said. "You can't help how you're being used."

      It will be interesting to see how Sherman does against Vincent.  One of the few CB’s in the league that is close to Vincent’s size. So, jump balls will not be a good idea.  Sherman is not the fastest guy in the league, he has said that himself.  But the guy always seems to be in the right place at the right time.

      I think it’s pretty cool that he understands the situation. Maybe even a tad sad for revis even?He knows that their "competition" is squashed/screwed until there is a coaching change or he goes to another team.Afterall, what bravery is there to be had by shooting a lion with his legs tied? Beating revis now would be asking for an asterisk.

      Sherman is the worst kind of matchup for VJax. I mean he’s a bad matchup for a lot of people but without VJax’s massive size advantage he’s not that good a WR overall.

      What part of Revis not being 100% and as such unable to really play man to man early in the season do people not get?Who needs to come out and say it, Revis himself has admitted this.

      How exactly is that a defense of Schiano in any way?Just because somebody doesn't proclaim him a granny beating, child eating demon in every single post doesn't mean they are defending him.Maybe you should focus a little more on your obvious issues, you must have them if you are that obsessed with Schiano, than trying to argue points that were never made.

      I have said in many threads that I want Schiano gone and Lovie brought in.  Schiano is being outcoached every week and beaten by teams with less talent.  However, the amount of crap being dumped on him is just absurd.  He is not evil.  He is not the reincarnation of your least favorite figure from history.  He is not feasting on the corpses of children.  He is simply a coach that is in over his head.  People really need to show a little class and leave it on the field.

      Sherman’s statement shows he is a true competitor.  Only a scrub wants to dethrone the king while he is down.  The real players want to win and leave no doubts when they are crowned.
