When the Seattle Seahawks take on the St. Louis Rams on Sunday — 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox — you may want to bust out the earmuffs for the children.
As Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate — remember his little celebratory trot to the end zone from back in October? — explained this week, the Seahawks and the Rams aren’t exactly teams that keep their feelings to themselves:
Really since I’ve been there, they have been a chirpy group. I think at times we can be a chirpy group, also. I don’t think there is anything wrong with it. I think we both have a lot of respect for each other.
When you are playing this game, it’s tough not to start talking a little bit. It’s just part of having emotion in a game like this (The Seattle Times).
Michael Robinson, Seattle’s fullback, echoed Tate’s assessment, saying that the Rams have “[talked] a lot more trash” ever since Jeff Fisher took over.
(I used to have a garbage man who loved to talk trash, but he was just passionate about his job.)
