In the buildup to Sunday afternoon's Patriots-Seahawks game in Seattle, Tom Brady was asked about the Seahawks' infamous "12th man" crowd. "This will be fun," Brady told ESPN. "It's always nice when you take 53 guys on the road and you say, 'This is all we've got and this is all we need and this is what we have to do.'"
More from ESPN last week:
Among the goals for Brady and his offense will be to quiet the crowd, and, as he states, turn the fans against their own team. "I think that's an exciting part for road teams, is to see if you can get them booing their own players," he said.
Fast-forward to Sunday night after the Seahawks shocked the Pats with a fourth quarter comeback and the Seahawks D left the Patriots offense looking overwhelmed. Seattle's star corner Richard Sherman couldn't help but respond.
BOOM. That's some Nobel Prize-worthy trolling right there.
And after Pats fans flooded him with responses like that?
Right. To all the Patriots fans who responded with the predictable talk of Super Bowl rings, MVPs, and whatever -- the equivalent of yelling "scoreboard" in this argument -- well ... Scoreboard, SON.
