The Carolina Panthers talked plenty before the game. The Denver Broncos got the last word.
And T.J. Ward, one of the hardest-hitting safeties in the NFL, saved his biggest blow for the postgame media session.
Via USA Today’s Lindsey Jones, Ward said that the Panthers were too concerned about fame and not enough about football.
“We don’t have to say nothing,” Ward said. “We let them do all the talking. We let our pads talk. We talk with our helmets and our shoulder pads. They could do all the media talking, you know what I’m talking about? We’re not about that flashy stuff. We’re about that grind, putting in that work. Grind it. Work. That’s how you get the ‘ship.”
Then Ward laid the hammerblow.
“They want to be famous. We want to be champions,” Ward said. “They want to be rappers and backup dancers. We want to play football.”
