Darian Stewart And The Denver Broncos Haven't Forgotten Cody Wallace's Dirty Hit On David Bruton

The Broncos defense haven't forgotten Cody Wallace's dirty hit on David Bruton.

The Denver Broncos Week 15 tilt vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers was the last game safety David Bruton played. He broke his leg late in the first quarter but managed to finish the game, albeit in a losing effort. 

The Broncos were without T.J. Ward and Darian Stewart that day, their starting safety duo. Bruton and Josh Bush had to step up and step up they did. 

Something else happened that day that involved Steelers center Cody Wallace. Wallace launched into David Bruton's helmet, after the play was over. It was dirty. It was despicable. And Wallace was fined by the league for it.

But the Broncos haven't forgotten about it. In fact, they rightfully believe Wallace should have been suspended for his dangerous action. And from the sounds of it, they've got his number in their upcoming Divisional Round throwdown.

As much as I respect the sentiment of settling scores, especially to avenge a wrong done to a Bronco, I can't help but worry that this could lead to something on gameday that could cost the Broncos. 

We saw how Vontaze Burfict cost the Cincinnati Bengals a playoff win and the opportunity to advance in the tournament. With so much at stake and with such a small margin of error in the playoffs, perhaps Stewart and company should let Karma work it's magic independently.
