Like seven layer taco dip and sentimental Budweiser ads, every Super Bowl is accompanied by a week of trash talk. It's inevitable, really. These players and coaches have been hounded since the conference title games by a bloodthirsty press that needs to milk every possible plot line and nuance until kickoff. And, in the lead up to Super Bowl XLIX specifically, the media's been gifted a gratuitous scandal as well as a Pro Bowl defensive backfield that talks shit about as well as it covers downfield.

Now, with the game four days a way, Complex News has compiled the empty shell casings from a week's worth of shots fired and put them into a video (posted above). Enjoy.
