Richard Sherman Mocks Tom Brady On Twitter After Seahawks Defeat Patriots (TWEETS)

After the Seattle Seahawks walked the walk against the New England Patriots, Richard Sherman went up to Tom Brady to talk the talk.

Based on the photographic evidence, the Patriots' quarterback didn't seem too interested in talking after absorbing a stunning 24-23 loss to the Seahawks before a delirious crowd in Seattle. After the game, Sherman couldn't resist taking a few more shots at Brady on Twitter.

After the game, Sherman shared a postgame photograph taken by Elaine Thompson of The Associated Press of himself approaching Brady. The question "U Mad Bro?" had been added to the image. Sherman has subsequently deleted that tweet but here is the unaltered AP image.

Of course, Sherman told reporters after the game that he was doing plenty of chirping before the win was assured.

“I kept saying I’m going to get that next time," Sherman recalled to Ryan Divish of 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.”

For the record, Sherman did get one of Tom Brady's passes. His teammate, Earl Thomas, intercepted another as the Seahawks' ferocious defense kept the game within reach before Russell Wilson orchestrated the late rally.

Not surprisingly, Patriots fans on Twitter were not too pleased with the result of the game or the tweets coming from Sherman's account. The 24-year-old out of Stanford had an answer for those fans, too.
