Yet the truer measuring stick of how Brady’s viewed came from Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman who got in Brady’s face after a mouthy Brady and the Patriots imploded. Sherman yelled at Brady “You’re just a man ... we’re a team.”
Brady did nothing. No response. He walked away with his head down.
The King has become mortal. Loved still? Yes. But feared? Absolutely not. Not any more.
