As millions of Americans prepare to chow down on chips and dip while they watch the New England Patriots (14-4) and the Seattle Seahawks (14-4) go head-to-head in Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, Feb. 1, writer Will Leitch (founding editor of Deadspin) offers some food for thought with his Jan. 30 Bloomberg Politics article, "The NFL's Trashtalker of Truth," a piece about Seahawks' cornerback Richard Sherman, who Fleitch calls "the most eloquent critic of his own league."

It's an excellent, eye-opening read—especially if you've had your fill of Deflategate.
