The Denver Broncos and New England will face each other yet again in the AFC Championship game on Sunday, and the trash talk has already started.
Rob Gronkowski kicked things off last night by making some sort of homophobia-riddled fellatio remark about the Broncos players "low blowing", but things have now kicked up a gear.
This is after Tom Brady was called the biggest crybaby in the entire NFL by Broncos defensive lineman Antonio Smith in an interview, via the Colorado Springs Gazette.

Smith, a 34-year-old veteran of 12 years in the National Football League, was asked 'Do the Broncos think Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a crybaby?' His answer, well he didn't sit on the fence.
“That would be an accurate statement,” Smith said. “I’ve never seen any quarterback look to the referee right after he gets sacked more than Brady."
"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 went on to add.
When not calling the Patriots quarterback a baby, Smith revealed that he actually has a lot of respect for the future Hall of Fame star.
“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 respect is there, it's just hidden a bit by the mind games. Anything goes when we get this late into the postseason.
