Denver Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson seems to get a little defensive whenever the subject of the Seattle Seahawks' 43-8 thrashing of Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII is brought up.
“(Bleep) Seattle,” Vickerson said to the Colorado Springs Gazette. “Write it down. Take a picture.”
Vickerson, who was released by Seattle in 2010, admitted that he cried after the Super Bowl loss. He criticized the Seahawks for their trash talk stemming from the game.
“Some guys, that’s what they do to get ramped up. But when you step in between the lines, pads talk. Let your pads talk,” Vickerson said. “That’s my mindset, that’s my demeanor when I go out on the field. Some guys are media guys. Some guys are cut different.”
The Broncos play the Seahawks in both teams' preseason opener on Aug. 7.
