Seahawks CB Sherman: 'Brady Bunch' in New England Runs 'Gimmick Offense'

Follow me on:

Yeah, it was just one win. And a one-point win, at that.

But at least in the mind of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, his team's 24-23 victory over the Patriots on this weekend was nothing short of a referendum on the state of mighty New England.

What Sherman seems to be telling the world, quite simply, is this: The Seahawks are legit. And the Patriots are not. Not anymore, at least.

The second-year cornerback made big waves on Sunday when he was seen talking trash to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady after the conclusion of Sunday's game. What, exactly, was the message he wanted to deliver? Well, as Sherman explained to the Tacoma News-Tribune: "Me and [safety Earl Thomas] walked up to him and said, 'We're greater than you. We're better than you. You're just a man--we're a team."

Sherman also referred to the Patriots as "the Brady Bunch," and accused New England of running a "gimmick offense" that the Seahawks easily figured out. Brady threw two interceptions on the day, including one to Sherman.

"[The media] is going to say, 'What's wrong? He threw two picks.' Well, he should have thrown five picks," Sherman told the News-Tribune. "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." - Tim Hyland

Good for him! Nothing wrong with trash talking as long as it doesn’t cross that tasteless line but Sherman has backed up his play the past couple years.

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
