Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman took to Twitter following his team’s 24-23 victory over the Patriots on Sunday, trash talking Tom Brady and the Patriots for all the world to see.
First, he tweeted a photo of Brady looking dejected from the game with the caption, “Brady sure looks like a man who turned the 12thMan against us.”
He was presumably referring to Brady’s comments earlier in the week, when the Patriots quarterback said he hoped to silence the crowd at CenturyLink Field, noted as one of the loudest stadiums in the NFL.
Sherman later sent the following tweet, along with the photo that accompanies it below: "He told me and earl to see him after the game when they win..... I found him after...."
The “earl” in the tweet refers to Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, who intercepted Brady in the end zone in the fourth quarter. Sherman also intercepted Brady in Seattle territory in the third quarter. For the game he was credited with three tackles and three passes defensed.
In the locker room after the game, the brash Sherman told the Seattle Times, "We're built for a heavyweight fight. I don't think they're built for a heavyweight fight."
A short time later, he sent one last tweet rubbing it in after apparently hearing from some irate New Englanders: "Patriots fans mad lol... Talking bout Super Bowl rings.... What have u done lately? Oh ur 3-3 lol"
