It’s been since 2012 that Seattle Seahawks’ cornerback Richard Sherman faced the quarterback Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
Looking back the game where the Seahawks’ beat the Patriots 24-23, Sherman had a mouthful to deliver about how he thinks the Seahawks were treated by Brady (via NFL.com).
Brady sure looks like a man who turned the 12th Man against us.
The tweet has since been deleted, however this image lives on.

The fact that Sherman will once again face Brady in Super Bowl 2015 has promoted reporters to talk to Sherman and hear what exactly he thinks about Brady.
He was just pretty much saying we were nobodies and that we should come up to him after they got the win. So we should take that pretty well? We should just, ah, ‘Cool. Can I get your autograph, too?
Like I said before, I think people sometimes get a skewed view of Tom Brady. That he’s just a clean-cut, does everything right, and never says a bad word to anyone. And we know him to be otherwise. So, in that moment of him being himself, he said some things and we returned the favor. And unfortunately he apparently didn’t remember what he said, etc., etc., but I’m sure in those moments of him yelling at the ref he’s just saying, ‘Good job, you’re doing a fantastic job, keep it up.
The All-Pro Sherman has come a long way since that game and he even joked about his popularity stating
I’ve become really cliché.
I’m sure it won’t be all Sherman we hear about from now leading up to the Super Bowl. Brady has a way of sparking up his own social media topics as well. And, it won’t be long before someone is “mad bro” or dropping “F” bombs.
