The swagger that is Richard Sherman

"We're built for a heavyweight fight. I don't think they're built for a heavyweight fight."
            -- Richard Sherman, Seahawks cornerback quarterback

There is a swagger to Seattle's defense. That swagger is named Richard Sherman.

He's not quiet, and say this for him, he doesn't talk about guys at the bottom of the NFL food chain. He said that A.J. Green -- the No. 4 overall pick in last year's draft -- was nothing but a lot of big talk and bad routes after the Seahawks played the Bengals last year. He referred to Carolina's Steve Smith as a little guy after the Seahawks' victory in Carolina last week.

And on Sunday, his target was none other than Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

Sherman said he kept telling Brady that if he kept throwing the ball, Sherman was going to take it away from him. Sherman said Brady told him to come talk to him after the game.

Well, Sherman not only did that. He found a picture of him finding Brady after the game, and then Tweeted that picture with an added caption to provide a lasting image from Seattle's 24-23 comeback against New England.

Sherman subsequently deleted that Tweet, but it had already spread, and it's included to the right.

There was another image Sherman included in his Tweet that remained up Sunday night.
