So Brandon Browner, a founding member the Legion of Boom, made some relatively controversial comments to ESPN’s Josina Anderson about his former teammates Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas.

“I’m going to tell my teammates ‘go hit that elbow, go hit that shoulder,”’ Browner told ESPN. “Hit it, yeah. Try to break it if you can. You can be my best friend after the game but at the end of the day I know you want the Super Bowl just as bad as I do.”

Of course, some of his former teammates were asked about those comments.

Bob Condotta asked Pete Carroll about it and had the head coach’s comments in this blog post. Seahawks players are also making a big deal about it.

Here’s what safety Kam Chancellor had to say:  “I mean, that’s BB. He ain’t gonna go too far, but shoot, we’ve got BB too. We know him too. We know him very well. We’re going to go after him, too. It’s going to be a fun game. So tell him Bobby said he’s coming after him.”

Chancellor knows it’s all about exploiting an opponents’ weaknesses.

“If somebody knows you’re weak in an area, they’re definitely going to try and exploit it,” Chancellor said. “But I don’t think he meant it in a malicious way or trying to hurt Sherm by any means. It’s just competing. It’s a competitive nature.”

Wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who had some memorable battles with Browner during one-on-one workouts at practice, had no problem with it either.

“Not surprised whatsoever,” Baldwin said. “I’d expect that. Everybody wants us to be politically correct, but that’s the truth. Whether you say it out loud or not, that’s legitimately what it is. I’m not surprised by that at all.”
