Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner raised the trash talk to another level when he told ESPN Monday that he would encourage his teammates to hurt Seattle players Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas during the Super Bowl: "I'm going to tell my teammates to go hit Richard Sherman's elbow and Earl Thomas's shoulder -- try to break it if you can. This is about the Super Bowl.” (Source: ESPN.go.com)
Browner is clearly still smarting from sitting out last year’s Seahawks Super Bowl victory while serving a suspension. Browner also felt slighted when his name was left out by President Obama when the president made remarks about Seattle's winning team.
Asked his reaction to Browner’s comments, Seattle coach Pete Carroll brushed it off as Browner having “fun with it.” (Source: Blog.SeattleTimes.com)
