Video: Erin Andrews Talks To Dan Patrick About Richard Sherman Interview: "He Lost His Mind...It Was Awesome"

Perspective.

If you've haven't seen the Richard Sherman postgame interview after yesterday's NFC Championship Game yet in which he tore apart 49ers' wide receiver Michael Crabtree, you've been missing out. Just moments after forcing the game-clinching interception, Sherman trashed his opponent, calling him a "sorry" and "mediocre" wide receiver to FOX's Erin Andrews on live television.

Today, Erin appeared on The Dan Patrick Show to talk about the interview -- many people have been asking her on Twitter if she was actually scared of Sherman in the moment, or what his thoughts were as he was going off in front of her. In short, she loved everything about it -- Andrews thought it was a pure, raw emotional outburst that captured his true feelings after an emotionally-charged, career-defining game for the cornerback. She talked to Dan about whether she was asked to prod Sherman further or cut away, whether or not she thinks Sherman should tone it down, and what she expects from him leading up to the Super Bowl:
