Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman had a lot to say about Tom Brady following Sunday’s game, and the New England Patriots quarterback has responded.
In a radio interview with Dial Global Sports’ Jim Gray, Brady said:
“[Sherman'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 went on to say:
“My dad also told me to worry about the things that I can control and certainly not worry about the things that I can’t. And I really don’t have feelings either way toward what someone may say or think. Really, what’s important is how I feel. We went out and we played a very good team on the road and had an opportunity to win there in the fourth quarter and just didn’t take advantage of it.”
Brady also said his team has 10 more games to “determine the fate of [their] season,” and that nothing is going to be decided in the sixth week. “That’s to be determined in January and it’s only October, so we’re just going to keep trying to get better,” he said.
The Seahawks pulled off a stunning 24-23 victory against the Patriots at home at CenturyLink Field, knocking the team down to 3-3 for the first six games of the season. The Seahawks improved to 4-2.
