Classless in Seattle?

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, who was on the receiving end of one of Tom Brady's two interceptions in Seattle's 24-23 win over the New England, celebrated the win by going on Twitter and taking some shots at the Patriots quarterback and their fans.

Sherman tweeted the following message along with a photo of Brady leaving CenturyLink Field with his head down.

Sherman's "12th man" comment was presumably in response to Brady’s comments earlier in the week regarding turning the CenturyLink Field crowd on the hometown team.

"This will be fun," Brady said about the road trip on Wednesday. "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.' And see 70,000 fans, if you can keep them quiet or turn them on 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."

Sherman spoke about the onfield trash talk after Sunday's game.

"I kept saying I'm going to get that next time. Every TV timeout, I went up and said it right to [Brady]: 'Please keep trying me. I'm going to take it from you.' That was when they were winning," Sherman said, according to the Tacoma News Tribune. "He just gave me that look and said, 'Oh, I'll see you after game.' Well, I made sure I saw him after the game."

Sherman continued with his taunts by posting a postgame photo with the "U MAD BRO" caption headline (above), which he has since taken down, along with the message: "He told me and Earl [Thomas] to see him after the game when they win... . I found him after…."

Sherman then went after Patriots fans with the following tweet:

Sherman also said the Seahawks are "built for a heavyweight fight. I don't think they're [Patriots] built for a heavyweight fight," according to the Seattle Times.
