We believe the saying is “Act like you’ve been there.” Richard Sherman had a lot to say after the Seahawks 24-23 win over the New England Patriots. We have this to say, enjoy your super bowl party in October, in New England success is measured in January. We understand an excitable young player who watched Brady in the eighth grade would talk some trash. However, slow your roll kiddo, your getting way ahead of your self. Sherman stated that the Patriots aren’t built for heavyweights, whaa? Again we know, your giddy, but we’ll see in January just where Seattle may be, because the Patriots will be playing in the postseason, it's an annual ritual around these parts. Brady isn’t much in trading banter via the media, often giving credit where credit is due. He took the high road on a young corner who forgot Brady has three rings and five super bowl appearances. Brady spoke with Jim Gray on Dial Global Sports about Sherman’s boastful remarks.
“He’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.”
“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.”
“We’re 3-3 so we’ve got 10 games to determine the fate of our season, and really it’s a matter of us getting better. I don’t think anything’s decided here in the sixth week of the year, or how capable you are of winning big games. That’s to be determined in January and it’s only October, so we’re just going to keep trying to get better. … Obviously 3-3 is not where we wanted to be, but that’s where we’re at. And if we’re going to move forward and improve then we’ve got to be determined to do that. And that’s a commitment that each of us players have to make.”

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman wants to be known as one of the league’s top corners, and he wants the respect for his team that he feels they deserve. He’s loudly taking care of both.

In the midst of watching his team rally with 14 points in the final 71/2 minutes, Seattle coach Pete Carroll forgot about his history as a one-time coach of the New England Patriots.
He was too busy celebrating Seattle's unlikely comeback and a starring performance by rookie quarterback Russell Wilson.
"That's funny that you even bring that up. I hadn't even thought...
Patrick Willis had no chance last December to do his part in stopping Marshawn Lynch and helping keep San Francisco's impressive streak alive: 36 straight games without allowing a 100-yard rusher.

This has a knack for being a defensive slugfest that everybody should enjoy!
Both defenses are fearless and talk a bunch of game, although they back it up with the best of them.
Seattle and San Francisco are second and third respectively, but they are fourth and first in points allowed per game...

There are many reasons not to like Tom Brady, so many that I don’t feel like writing the novel on it.He’s a competitive guy and that showed against the Seattle Seahawks as he was obviously frustrated at times cursing himself after he threw his two interceptions on the day.The Seahawks wanted to make sure they rubbed it in a little after the game on Sunday when cornerback Richard...

LAST WEEK: 6-8
SEASON: 55-36 (60%)
The Seahawks are coming off a huge win against the Pats and the 49ers are coming off a really rough loss to the Giants, but San Francisco's defense is just too good to lose to Russell Wilson no matter how good the Seattle defense plays.
Both of these teams were big underdogs in their...
