In Richard Sherman's reality, Tom Brady is not who we think he is


It has begun.

Richard Sherman found a microphone and its all down here from here.

Sherman decided we needed to hear his side of the story from the "You mad Bro" game. According to him we have a "skewed sense" of who Tom Brady is.

Take it away Mr. Sherman:


He was pretty much saying that we were nobodies,” Sherman said Wednesday via “And we should come up to him after they got the win. He said stuff like that throughout the game. So we should just take that pretty well? Sure, can I get your autograph, too?

I think people somehow get a skewed view of Tom Brady,” Sherman said. “That he’s just a clean-cut guy that does everything right and never says a bad word to anyone. We know him to be otherwise.

“In that moment of him being himself, he said some things and we returned the favor. Unfortunately, he apparently didn’t remember what he said. I’m sure also in those moments when he’s yelling at the ref, he’s just saying, ‘Good job. You’re doing a fantastic job. Keep it up.'

I don't think people have a skewed sense of Brady at all. But I do believe that Richard Sherman has a skewed sense of reality. He continually gets mad at other players when they say something to him during the game. Yet he continually runs his mouth during the game and even more after the games.

The "You mad bro" game is a great example of this. Sure, Brady was trash talking you during the game but then you taunting him after your team won is just bad sportsmanship.

His showing after the NFC Championship game last year was even worse. After Michael Crabtree's hopes of going to the Super Bowl had just been dashed, Sherman ran up to him and tried to shake his hand in front of everyone. It wasn't a nice gesture, it was him taunting Crabtree. After Crabtree shoved him, Sherman went on his rant about how he felt slighted that someone would dare throw a pass in his direction.

That's not the actions of a man that has a firm grasp on reality. So when Sherman says we all have a skewed view of Tom Brady he's actually right. Or at least, he thinks he is.
