Tom Brady might be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, but one Broncos player says he’s also a Super crybaby.
“I’ve never seen any quarterback look to the referee right after he gets sacked more than Brady,” saiddefensive lineman Antonio Smith, who agreed that calling the Patriots signal-caller a “crybaby” would be an accurate statement.
“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.'”
Brady was sacked 38 times this season — he’s only been sacked more in two other seasons during his 16-year career.
Smith did add that although the four-time Super Bowl champion complains a lot, he isn’t fazed by much.
“He’s not going to rattle just because you hit him hard. I’ve tried over the years,” Smith said. “That’s what D-linemen think: ‘The harder you hit the quarterback, the better it will make it on the secondary.’
“With Brady, he’s a great competitor. You know it’s coming. He’s going to cry about getting hit, but he’s going to take the hit and keep going.”
The Broncos and Patriots face off at 3:05 p.m. Sunday in the AFC Conference title game.
