Whenever the Patriots lose, it brings out the best and the worst in a lot of people. It brought out the best in the Denver Broncos' Facebook page.
Earlier on Sunday, Tom Brady posted a witty picture of him on top of a Bronco. He usually does something to take a playful shot at whomever his next opponent is. The Broncos defeated the Patriots last night and fired back at Brady. Admittedly, it was pretty funny.
Broncos linebacker Von Miller also got into the act, posting the same photo to his Instagram page.
While that's all in good fun and nothing stupid was said, the victory by the Broncos brought out the worst in one of its former players. CBS studio commentator Shannon Sharpe, who played for the Broncos for 12 seasons, laid into Brady and got into spats with Patriots fans on Twitter.
The subject material ranged from talking about the game to people's mothers... Since, you know, we're all still stuck in high school...
Anyway, here are a few of his tweets. You can see more of them by clicking here.

Any Broncos fans have some crow we could send to Pats headquarters. Doesn't need to be heated. Crow taste better cold. #trolling.— shannon sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) November 30, 2015
I need someone to post that stat about qb's making their 1st start against coach Belichick. Add one more L to that column— shannon sharpe (@ShannonSharpe) November 30, 2015
I find it hysterical that Sharpe has to resort to this, but to each his own I suppose.
