The Seattle Seahawks pulled off an improbable 24-23 win over the New England Patriots yesterday. Raise your hand if you saw that one coming. Cornerback Richard Sherman decided to celebrate by posting a picture of him taunting Tom Brady after the game to Twitter. The kid certainly has some moxie.
Well, perhaps “some” isn’t the right word. Dude sounds like someone who just discovered the cure for cancer. He’s very, very, very proud of himself.
"I kept saying I'm going to get that next time. 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."
"They're going to say, 'What's wrong? He threw two picks. Well, he should have thrown five picks. If Earl catches every one, then it's a long day for him. People don't understand. We've got great players out here. We've got great players in the Pacific Northwest. The Seattle Seahawks have a lot of talent. People, they don't look at the film. They don't analyze anything. That's why these analysts and commentators need to shut their mouth."
Sherman didn’t heed his own advice.
[He] went on and on by his locker, orating for an ever-increasing group of media folks. "Me and Earl walked up to him and said, 'We're greater than you. We're better than you. You're just a man -- we're a team.' That's the Brady Bunch; this is a defense. We've got 11 players out there to play great ball, and we're never going to let one man beat us. It's not just about one man. If they've got 11 players out there on offense, then they're one hell of a team."
I’m kind of conflicted on this. It’s kind of cool to see Tommy Touchdown get knocked down a notch, but I’m not entirely sure this Sherman cat is the person to do it.
