Richard Sherman on Tom Brady situation: "Now it’s done."

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman made quite a few headlines this week after he had a few words for Tom Brady following Seattle’s win. Or to be more accurate, Sherman made headlines when he posted a picture (since deleted) on Twitter of him talking to Brady after the game with a caption saying, “U mad bro?”

Sherman said he approached Brady after the game because Brady, when his team was winning, told Sherman and Earl Thomas to come see him after the game.

Now Sherman is hardly new to trash talking, but when your target is Brady, it becomes a big story. Brady mostly tried to downplay the incident in a radio interview yesterday, and Sherman did the same today.

“It was exactly what it should have been,” Sherman said of Brady’s response. “He’s a great player, he did what he did, he said what he said, and now it’s done.”

Asked if he liked the attention this was bringing to him, Shermand said, “It doesn’t make any difference to me. Go out there and play good ball, that’s all I’m focusing on every week. Attention or no attention, you go out there and play good ball, that’s really all it comes down to.”

And as for Brady, Sherman had nothing but praise for the quarterback:

“It’s Tom Brady, it’s a future Hall of Fame quarterback. We’ve got great respect for him and everything that he’s done. We went out there and played a good game, and that’s what we wanted to do. We wanted to execute our game plan.”

As for that Tweet that he deleated, Shermand said he, “I was asked to, so I do as I’m asked.”

Despite all the attention paid to this incident, Sherman has no plans on losing the edge he plays with, nor does he regret what happened during or after Sunday’s game.

“No, I don’t regret anything about that situation,” he said. “It is what it is.”

Sherman was also outspoken in the locker room after the game, saying some things that could certainly be construed as shots at the Patriots, but he says that was more about trying to bring attention to a defense and a team he feels is overlooked, not about disrespecting the Patriots or Brady.

“I was definitely more about us than about him,” he said. “I’m talking about our back end and the three Pro Bowl players back there, how great our D-line is playing, how awesome our linebacker play is, how great our rookie quarterback did against Tom Brady. A lot of people wouldn’t have penned him beating Tom Brady. After the draft a lot of people thought that was a crazy move, but he’s beaten Tom Brady, he’s beaten Tony Romo, he’s beaten some pretty good quarterbacks, so we have a lot of faith in the guy. I think he’s proven a lot of things now. “
