Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a future Pro Bowl player, and that future might start this year. After perhaps the best performance of his young career Sunday against the New England Patriots, the guy was feeling like the champion of the world.

"We're built for a heavyweight fight," Sherman said after the Seahawks' 24-23 victory over the Patriots, via the Seattle Times. "I don't think they're built for a heavyweight fight."

Sherman was only getting started. First, he went here on Twitter:

Brady sure looks like a man who turned the 12thMan against us

- Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) October 14, 2012

Then he came on really strong, tweeting: "He told me and earl to see him after the game when they win..... I found him after...." He added a picture of himself yelling at Tom Brady with the words "U mad bro?" on it.

The tweet and picture later were deleted.

Sherman told the News Tribune that he and Seahawks safety Earl Thomas jawed with Brady during the game, which explains the tweets. And while the temptation is to point out that Brady is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and Sherman, who had an interception Sunday, is just a second-year pro, we have to admit we love the attitude of this Seahawks defense.

They are a different team to prepare for. They are physical, with great depth. Their secondary is massive.
