Richard Sherman Talks Trash to Tom Brady

So Richard Sherman was in Tom Brady’s face all game Sunday, taking every opportunity to get in his ear. “I kept saying I’m going to get that next time,” Sherman recalled to the Tacoma News Tribune. “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.”

Sherman tweeted:

“He told me and earl to see him after the game when they win….. I found him after…. “

Thennnnn he tweeted:


Thennnnnnnn he tweeted:

“Brady sure looks like a man who turned the 12thMan against us”


“Patriots fans mad lol… Talking bout Super Bowl rings…. What have u done lately? Oh ur 3-3 lol”

And finally:

“Lol these ppl are hilarious … They have the audacity to call someone classless when they are name calling over the net lol… I love it”

I love how people are calling this a “Tom Brady trash talk backfire.”  The kid was in his ear all game and I actually think one of the classiest responses, besides not responding at all is “see me after we win.”  Granted he was wrong, but I don’t think its a bad move, considering they usually win 9 times out of 10 in that situation.

Theres a couple ways you can look at this.  Id like to call Sherman an idiot, but noticed he went to Stanford?? I can easily call him a thug…born and raised in Compton, Ah ha, to easy. I will do neither.  I dont think the big deal here is the trash talking, its the amount.  Im all for it and have been guilty of it once or twice myself, but there is a limit though.  Getting in his ear on the field is fine, seeing him after the game is finer.  Tweeting over and over and over and over again about it afterwards is not.  Its exactly what he has been called as of late…classless.  Act like youve been there, act like youll do it again.  So back to the root cause…not stupid – Stanford, not a thug – Compton (to easy), He’s only 24, a baby, so Im going to call this age and lack of maturity, withhhhh a sprinkle of thug (sorry couldnt resist).

Ill leave you with a bit of class:

Asked about Sherman’s comments Monday, Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said he doesn’t pay attention to the trash talk.

“They have a good defense, they really do. They have one of the top defenses in the league. I give them a lot of credit,” he said. “They play a lot of players in there, and they play the run well, and they defend the pass well. They don’t give up a lot of big plays. They played better than we did yesterday.”

PS – I hate the Patriots and was completely happy to see all of this play out.  You suck Tom!!! What son?? WHAT???

What? I said I was guilty of it too 😉
