Denver Broncos rusher tried to rub his nuts on Tom Brady's face

The Denver Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl last weekend after defeating the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game 20-18.

The standout performance in that game came from the Broncos rush, which managed to sack Patriots quarterback Tom Brady four times, but that number could have been a lot higher if the 38-year-old hadn't thrown the ball away on numerous occasions.

Throughout the game, the four-time Super Bowl champion was hit 23 times by the Broncos defense, but they wanted to do a lot more than just tackle the quarterback to the ground. A lot more.

According to Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated, one Broncos pass rusher tried to do something rather nasty to Brady once he was down on the ground.

The unnamed defensive player said: “I tried to lay on him a few times. I tried to rub my nuts on his face.”

Yes, you read that correctly. Sounds more like a Call of Duty taunt than something you'd see on a football field.

Despite the failed attempts by this unnamed Broncos pass rusher, Brady was still embarrassed after the game because his offensive line could not do enough to protect him, leaving the 38-year-old battered and bruised while his O-line walked away with barely any sign of damage to their bodies.

That's what happens when you only draft two linemen in the first three rounds of the draft since 2006 (Nate Solder, first round, 2011, and Sebastian Vollmer, second round, 2009), which isn't enough when you're trying to protect arguably the best quarterback in NFL history.

Still, offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo was reportedly fired on Monday as well. I wonder why.
