Skins bow out against Seattle
Many pro athletes thrive on what they perceive to be personal slights. It appears Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner is one of those athletes.
Throughout the Seahawks 24-14 Wild Card win over Washington, Browner and Redskins’ wide receiver Pierre Garcon engaged in trash talk. Multiple times the two needed to be separated by the referees as they pushed and shoved one another.
After the game, Browner explained his motivation to challenge Garcon.
“You know they didn’t respect us like they [were] supposed to,” Browner said. “Going into the game, Garcon said he didn’t even know my name. You know, you play disrespectful, you get treated like it.”
The Wild Card game against the Redskins was Browner’s first game back after serving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy.
Asked last week if he expected Browner to be rusty from the four-game layoff, Garcon reportedly said he did not even know Browner’s name and was not worried about him.
Browner took exception to the comment.
“They don’t respect us, but I bet he knows my last name now,” Browner said. “Bet he do. If he don’t, he got a whole offseason to think about it.”
Looking forward to Seattle’s next game against the Atlanta Falcons, Browner did not want to say much.
“Talking about Atlanta, Roddy White and Julio Jones, those guys are great wide receivers. We got a challenge ahead of us,” Browner said.
“I don’t like to brag, I just want to do that to Pierre Garcon. I won’t talk about Julio Jones or Roddy White until it’s time to play.”
