Broncos think Tom Brady’s a crybaby? DE Smith: ‘That would be an accurate statement’
Time for another war-of-words appetizer before Sunday’s main course.
On Monday, Denver Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall took a shot at New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, saying Gronk is so hard to cover " ’cause he pushes off." Meanwhile Marshall’s defensive-end teammate Antonio Smith reportedly took an opportunity to jab at Patriots QB Tom Brady.
It’s not all grenades coming from the Broncos camp, though. Brady got a pretty nice compiment his former teammate and current Broncos defensive back Aqib Talib:
Tell us Tom, how does that make you feel?
I asked Aqib Talib who's tougher to face in the postseason, Ben or Brady. Said both are great, "But nobody is above Tom. Nobody."
