Tom Brady fires back at Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has made Tom Brady his personal whipping boy. The trash talking began on Twitter before the game last Sunday, and appears to only be gaining steam, opposed to dying out. See after the game Sherman got in Brady’s grill and then posted a picture of the two on Twitter with the tagline, “U Mad Bro.”
Well Tom Brady fired possibly a subliminal, backhanded, response when interviewed by Jim Gray on Dial Global Sports.
“He’s a very good player and I have a lot of respect for that defense and certainly that secondary,” Brady said of the Seahawks in general and Sherman specifically while talking to Jim Gray on Dial Global Sports. “They play very well together. My dad taught me at a young age to play with class and respect and give my opponents respect, and certainly I have a lot of respect for the Seahawks.
“My dad also told me to worry about the things that I can control and certainly not worry about the things that I can’t. And I really don’t have feelings either way toward what someone may say or think. Really, what’s important is how I feel. We went out and we played a very good team on the road and had an opportunity to win there in the fourth quarter and just didn’t take advantage of it.”
Sherman went after Tom Brady throughout the whole game and eventually intercepted Brady. After the game Sherman took yet another dig at the Patriots.
Every TV timeout, I went up and said it right to (Brady): ‘Please keep trying me. I’m going to take it from you.’ That was when they were winning. He just gave me that look and said, ‘Oh, I’ll see you after game.’ Well, I made sure I saw him after the game.”
“We’re built for a heavyweight fight. I don’t think they’re(Patriots) built for a heavyweight fight.”
