Pop Quiz: What Body Part(s) Did a Broncos Player Try to Shove in Tom Brady’s Face?
Tom Brady might be used to playing with deflated balls, but an unnamed Broncos rusher wanted to make sure that the star Patriots player got a taste of what it’s like to handle the big ones, too.
The New England patriots got schlonged by the Denver Broncos Sunday night, earning the Colorado team a spot in next month’s Super Bowl. The Pats’ defeat was extra rewarding because last year, they made it to the big game despite widespread conviction that they had cheated their way in by secretly deflating footballs in the playoffs. Plus, there is a pretty commonly-held belief that head coach Bill Belichick is sort of a belidick.

Anyway, someone on the Broncos decided to take Brady down a notch. Speaking anonymously to The Monday Morning Quarterback, one of Denver’s rushers laid the following quote right down:
I tried to lay on him a few times. I tried to rub my nuts on his face.
Whether or not the Broncos leave the Super Bowl with rings, at least one of their players has a hefty set of prized family jewels he can be mighty proud of.
In closing, I leave you with my favorite video that incorporates Tom Brady and balls. (In the event we get official NFL footage of the previously-described incident, I will update my records accordingly.)
