Because everyone needed to have a take on Richard Sherman’s postgame interview and because Tom Brady doesn’t have a Super Bowl to prepare for, Dreamboat was able to weigh in on Monday with remarks about how the Patriot Way doesn’t tolerate gloating or any such glory boy behavior.
“I don’t know him at all. I’ve watched him play. He’s that kind of guy,” Brady said. “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.”
Possibly sour grapes from Brady from the time Sherman mouthed off to him following a Seahawks win.
But Brady has a point – the Patriots never disrespect or show up opponents. Not them.
