'U mad bro:' Seahawks CB taunts confident Brady after comeback
Tom Brady and his Patriots were stunned by the Seahawks on Sunday, and now Brady is having salt poured in the wound by Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman. Sherman approached Brady after the Seahwaks came back to beat the Patriots, 24-23 in Seattle, and was photographed yelling in Brady's direction. According to numerous reports, Sherman then tweeted, "He told me and [safety Earl Thomas] to see him after the game when they win. . . I found him after."
Sherman then apparently deleted the tweet, which also included the image of him approaching Brady, with the words "U mad bro?" written on the image.
According to Sherman, Brady was taunting them while the Patriots were leading throughout the game. The Seahawks then came back from a 13-point deficit in the final 7:31, which included a pick by Sherman in the third quarter. When Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson hit Sidney Rice for a 46-yard touchdown pass with 1:18 remaining, and the extra point went through for kicker Steven Hauschka, Seattle had the lead that would inspire all of Sherman's antics.
"Every TV timeout, I went up and said it right to [Brady]: 'Please keep trying me. I'm going to take it from you.'," Sherman told the Tacoma News Tribune. "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," Sherman continued. "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.
Seattle had the league's No. 1-ranked defense, while the Patriots had the No. 1-ranked offense. It took the Patriots record to 3-3 – tied with the other three teams in the AFC East, including the Jets – while the Seahawks went to 4-2, tied atop the NFC West with the Cardinals and 49ers.
