The web was buzzing when Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted about Tom Brady asking him and Earl Thomas to see Brady after the game. Of course, Brady did so when the New England Patriots were beating the Seahawks in the second half before allowing a comeback by Seattle.
Having the last laugh, Sherman met with Brady after the game as asked. But the tweet has since been deleted, and on Tuesday both Sherman and Brady were playing cool.
Sherman told KJR in Seattle that he felt like his trash talk helped bait Brady into throwing toward him, leading to an interception. He wouldn't elaborate too much about the conversation after the game, according to the discussion posted on Sports Radio Interviews:
"A little of this, little of that. … We're going to leave that out there. We're going to leave that for him and me."
Said Brady of Sherman, via a transcribed interview with Jim Gray from Sports Radio Interviews:
"He's a very good player and I have a lot of respect for that defense and certainly that secondary. They play very well together. My dad taught me at a young age to play with class and respect and give my opponents respect, and certainly I have a lot of respect for the Seahawks."
Brady and the Patriots led 23-10 with eight minutes to play in the fourth quarter before Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson helped Seattle win 24-23 thanks to two touchdown passes.
