Fascinating read about how Richard Sherman can't let go of Malcolm Butler's interception in the Super Bowl two years ago. The story fills in the gaps as to why Sherman was very publicly on the trade block by the Seahawks this past offseason. The story also helps highlight how great the New England Patriots really are.
I could not help but think while reading the article that you'd never hear a player on the Patriots' defense criticize Tom Brady (even in private I assume) the way Richard Sherman rips QB Russell Wilson. I also kept thinking about all those interviews I've seen over the years of veteran players coming to the Patriots and how surprised they are to see coach Bill Belichick rip into Brady as if he was just another player.
Not like that in Seattle. Not by a long shot.
Personally I love Pete Carroll's credo for interviews of "no negatives". That seems to be a great example to emulate for a happier life but for building a football dynasty? Maybe not so much. The Patriots won the Super Bowl in February but as a team they are already on to the season opener vs the Chiefs in their mindset. Meanwhile the Seahawks' mindset seem stuck on the last game from 2015.
The Patriots have the mindset of a dynasty and that makes all the difference.
