Richard Sherman's trash talking caught on mic

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has become known for his trash talking ways and we're finally getting a firsthand listen to what he throws out on the field.

Sherman wore a microphone for NFL Films during Sunday's de-horning of the Minnesota Vikings.

Early in the game, things were upbeat with Sherman leading teammates in a chant.

"Who's got my back?" Sherman chanted.

"We got your back," was fellow Seahawks' response.

"Come on, let's have fun out here baby. Remember, play for your brothers," Sherman said.

But later in the game, we hear him taking on Vikings wide receiver Joe Webb.

"You're not strong enough. You need to lift a little more. You're sorry. It's a waste of my time."

Well, that wasn't very nice. And it continued to not be very nice.

"That's it. That's it. You suck. You so weak," he said after another play.

During post-game he was a tiny bit less provocative.

"It feels decent. You know. I mean it is what it is. We knew what kind of game it was going to be. We got it done," said Sherman. "It's too damn cold out here."

Amidst all that brash trash talking, his honesty is why we like him.

Watch the full video of Sherman on-mic from NFL Films.
