As you know, Broncos fans love to hate Tom Brady, quarterback for the New England Patriots.
The Carolina Panthers, who'll face the Broncos in the big game, aren't traditional Denver rivals. Moreover, their top star, quarterback Cam Newton, doesn't stir nearly as much passion as does Brady, the subject of numerous unflattering meme galleries.
NFL meme-makers who aren't on the Newton bandwagon mainly portray him as a douchebag, with favorite themes including allegations that he signed with his college, Auburn, after his dad received a hefty bribe, his penchant for me-first egomania, braggadocio and occasional pouting, and his proclivity for showy fashion choices and/or wearing a towel over his head.
