Seahawks CB Richard Sherman said that Patriots QB Tom Brady was the one who started badmouthing in 2012, when New England faced Seattle in a regular-season matchup. Bookmaker software services saw that in that game, Sherman approached Brady after the Seahawks beat the Patriots 24-23 asking, “You mad, bro?”
“He was pretty much saying that we were nobodies,” said Sherman. “And we should come up to him after they got
the win. He said stuff like that throughout the game. So we should just take that pretty well? Sure, can I get your autograph, too?”
Seattle were trailing 23-10 in the game at CenturyLink Field on the 14th of October of 2012. However, in the game’s fourth quarter, the Seahawks were able to score 2 TD’s, which include a TD pass for 46 yards made by QB Russell Wilson to WR Sidney Rice with 1:18 remaining. What Sherman said about Brady was broadcasted on national television just after the end of the game.
On Monday, Brady said that he does not remember what was said by Sherman.
“Truthfully, at that time, I thought he was just coming up to say ‘good game.’ That’s all I thought it was,” said Brady. “It was loud after that game, so I didn’t really hear anything. Then I went into the locker room after the game and … he said he was talking trash to me. That was all a bit of a surprise to me.”
On Wednesday, Sherman said that he believes that reality does not match the image projected by Brady.
“I think people somehow get a skewed view of Tom Brady,” Sherman said. “That he’s just a clean-cut guy that does everything right and never says a bad word to anyone. We know him to be otherwise.
“In that moment of him being himself, he said some things and we returned the favor. Unfortunately, he apparently didn’t remember what he said. I’m sure also in those moments when he’s yelling at the ref, he’s just saying, ‘Good job. You’re doing a fantastic job. Keep it up.’ ”
The Seahawks’ CB was asked if he thinks that the ball will be thrown his way by Brady once the Super Bowl gets underway, and bookmaker software services would like to see if there will be odds on this, as it might be a very interesting bet.
“I don’t care,” said Sherman. “I hope so. It will give me more opportunities to get the ball. He had me in his sights before.”
