By now, it's no secret that Richard Sherman is one of the mouthiest players in the NFL, particularly following a win. There aren't many players who'd taunt Tom Brady or go toe to toe with Trent Williams, after all.

Well, with the tables turned, he was finally given a taste of his own medicine, courtesy of Asante Samuel.

After the Falcons knocked off the Seahawks in Sunday's wild Divisional Round contest, Samuel reportedly went through the locker room yelling that Seattle coach Pete Carroll and Sherman can both "eat some humble pie."

Does it come with a side of hypocrisy?

Let's be clear: Samuel is far from soft-spoken. This is the same guy who recently gave himself the nickname "Swag 100," because he exudes swag 100-percent of the time.

However, it's fair to say the four-time Pro Bowler earned the right to talk, as his team advanced -- albeit barely -- to the NFC Championship Game, extinguishing a white-hot 'Hawks club.

Despite putting up one heckuva fight, neither Sherman nor Carroll will be able to dish out much of a rebuttal.
