NEW YORK — Good old-fashioned trash talk has become a staple in sports, but two New York publications are taking it to a new level with their latest issues. Some might say a new low, but call it what you will, the page designers at the New York Daily News and New York Post had a field day after Broncos players directed some trash talk at Tom Brady.
Comments from Broncos players Antonio Smith and Brandon Marshall calling Tom Brady a “crybaby” inspired some eye-catching back covers of the New York publications on this week.
The Gazette of Colorado Springs asked Broncos defensive end Antonio Smith if Tom Brady was a crybaby and Smith did not mince words.
“That would be an accurate statement. I’ve never seen any quarterback look to the referee right after he gets sacked more than Brady,” Smith said, according to The Gazette. “Every time he gets sacked he looks at the ref like, ‘You see him sack me? Was that supposed to happen? He did it a little hard. Please throw a 15-yard penalty on him. Get him fined.'”
Likewise, when Mile High Sports asked lineback Brandon Marshall if he would call Brady a crybaby, Marshall responded with an emphatic, “Yes. Yes, I absolutely will.”
“From what I heard – how he talked to the refs in our first game – that’s exactly what I think he was doing. He was crying,” Marshall added.
Broncos fans might get a kick out of the pages ridiculing the New England quarterback, and plenty of Chiefs fans still reeling from last Saturday’s loss would agree.
