Apparently before Sunday's game, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady told safety Earl Thomas and cornerback Richard Sherman to "see him after the game when they win..."

Sherman found him alright, and shared his response via Twitter. The original tweet has since been deleted, but luckily I retweeted his original tweet and saved the image. Seattle's secondary is not known to back down from anyone, so is it surprising that Sherm sought out Brady after the game?

There probably isn't a more cocky defensive back in the league, yet he backs up his mouth with his play week after week. Coming into Week 6, Pro Football Focus had Sherman as the highest graded cover corner at plus-6.9. And I don't see that number dropping after another outstanding performance.  

Unfortunately for Brady, the postgame yapping didn't stop on the field. He had plenty of good quotes to serve up to the media in the locker room. Sherman had this to say to The News Tribune

I kept saying I’m going to get that next time. 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.

Let's see if the strong play of the secondary can keep it up on a short week. The Seahawks will pack their bags and head for San Francisco to take on the 49ers Thursday night. A victory over San Fran and a Cardinals loss would put the 'Hawks in sole possession of first place.
