Denver Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson was injured when his team got slapped around by the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII. So all offseason, Vickerson has heard Seahawks players talk trash about the Broncos and how they gave up that night.
Well, Paul Klee of the Colorado Springs Gazette spoke with Vickerson and he had some choice words for the Seahawks.
“(Bleep) Seattle,” Broncos defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson told me after practice on Monday. “Write it down. Take a picture.”
“Some guys, that’s what they do to get ramped up. But when you step in between the lines, pads talk. Let your pads talk,” Vickerson said. “That’s my mindset, that’s my demeanor when I go out on the field. Some guys are media guys. Some guys are cut different. But when you go to really looking at football and playing football, it’s between the lines. Buckle your chinstrap and let your pads talk, man.”
I don’t think Vickerson was watching the same game I was watching, because the Seahawks definitely let their pads do the talking.
