BILLS, TITANS LINEMEN TRADE TWITTER BARBS
rarely even on Twitter do we see NFL players from opposing teams get into it with each other, even in this day and age of thin skins and hair-trigger get-backs.
That’s why it actually was kind of fun to read Monday on Twitter a couple of buffalo bills defensive linemen go back and forth with Tennessee Titans left offensive tackle Taylor Lewan.
The bills defeated the Titans on sunday 14-7, in large part because the buffalo defensive line ate up the Tennessee O-line, which was supposedly bolstered by the return of Lewan, who sat out the first four games for a Ped suspension.
Lewan appeared to kick off the social-media spat when he tweeted an in-jest “shout out” to backup bills defensive end shaq Lawson “and his dominant stats” on sunday: No tackles, no sacks, nothing.
“(y)our’re a monster hahaha,” Lewan tweeted to the “#1stroundbackup.”
This, even though the bills sacked Tennessee Qb Marcus Mariota five times, hit him three other times, had seven tackles-for-loss in all and held the Titans attack to a measley 252 yards.
Lawson retorted: “still was whooping your ass all game.”
Lawson’s linemate Jordan Phillips, who had three first-half sacks, replied to Lewan twice as follows, punctuation and spelling corrected:
“Go get drug-tested again, bum. you’re soft. crybaby. I’m surprised you even finished the game.
“Man didn’t say one word during the game because he was getting tore up. Now he wants to take it to social media. you’re a joke, always been a joke.”
Lawson also tweeted (again, cleaned up): “LOL. Hope you in az during the offseason, tough guy.”
replied Lewan: “yup, and it will go just like last time. you, tired as f---, and me crushing workouts. #bighugstinykisses.”
