When asked if Brady is a crybaby, Smith replied: "That would be an accurate statement. I've never seen any quarterback look to the referee right after he gets sacked more than Brady," the defensive lineman said, per the Colorado Springs 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.'"
Smith did offer up some praise of the QB after saying that Brady cries too 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."
While the Broncos have started off the week chomping at the bit, things were relatively quiet out of New England until Gronkowski provided his take on social media:

With the way Brady performs in the playoffs and fresh off carving up the Chiefs' defense, it's not too wise to give him a little extra added motivation -- especially since he's beaten Peyton Manning 11 out of 16 matchups.
