The term “crybaby” probably got used on Tuesday more than any other day in NFL history, and it doesn’t look to be slowing down today.

After Broncos defenders Brandon Marshall and Antonio Smith called out Tom Brady for whining to the officials every time he got touched, their words jettisoned around the sports world, angering Bostonians and causing defenders everywhere to nod their head in agreement. And of course, the New York tabloids had to get in on the fun Wednesday morning.

Without question, this is awesome. But did they really have to put chest hair on that baby?

Whether they wanted it or not, Marshall and Smith’s comments have blown up. Now, as everyone is claiming, the question becomes: Is this just bulletin-board material for Brady and the Pats?

Only time will tell. Apparently, though, it’s some high-grade cover material, if nothing else.
