Tom Brady on Richard Sherman: 'We win with graciousness'

Richard Sherman and the Seahawks are going to the Super Bowl. Tom Brady and the Patriots aren't.

Still, Brady doesn't like the way Sherman acted after the Seahawks' win in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday.

MMQB: Richard Sherman in his own words

“I don’t know him at all. I’ve watched him play. He’s that kind of guy,” Brady said on the Dennis & Callahan Show on WEEI Radio in Boston on Monday. “So, you know. I approach the game and I have respect for my opponents. That’s the way our team always plays.

"We win with graciousness, and when we lose, we could do better. Some teams don’t always do that, or that’s not their program. The only way to counter that is to beat them. When you don’t win, it’s hard not to say — you just gotta shut your mouth and listen to it. Maybe when you get an opportunity down the road, maybe that’s a source of motivation. But they got a good team, they played well all year. They played well at home. And that’s why they advanced, too.”

After the Seahawks beat the Patriots last season, Sherman went up to Brady to trash talk. He later tweeted a picture of the confrontation with a caption that read "U MAD."
