Alan Lupiani's Top Ten Favorite NFL Player Tweets of the Week
NFL players have joined the twitter craze and are letting us know what's on their minds during the first week of training camp.
I have been following many NFL players all week long, searching for the most interesting tweets.
Here's my TOP 10 NFL Player Tweets of the Week.
#1 Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco
@oGOchocinco "Mark Kriegel you're an idiot, you want a Lil fame I'll help, because your story today sucked just like you did in school!!!"
remark: Chad got the week going with a BANG by firing back @ Fox's Mark Kriegel for Kriegel's unflattering portrayal of Ocho's online activities.
# 2 Buffalo Bills WR Terrell Owens
@terrellowens81 "Keep hating jimmy romeo! while u're @ it, tell the people really how ratings r calculated & how ridiculous & inaccurate u r about my show."
remark: TO obviously upset over sports talk host Jim Rome's comments regarding TO's VH-1 reality show.
#3 Phoenix Cardinals DE Darnell Dockett
@ddockett "Would any of u women get "NINE-0" tattooed on ur lower back for 150k and a shopping spree to all ur fav stores? u can't get it removed."
remark: Darnell is one of the funniest NFL tweeps out there. He's also an "out of the box" thinker when seeking additional ways to promote his "NINE-0" brand.
#4 San Diego Chargers LB Shawne Merriman
@shawnemerriman "Yea you can be tough alllllll you want to but the first time you get hit for a $2500 fine my name goes from LightsOut to just switch lol"
remark: The burly LB contemplates with trepidation about the prospect of being penalized with a nasty $2,500 unsportsmanlike "tweeting" fine.
#5 San Diego Chargers WR Kassim Osgood
@kassimosgood "DJ, bartender, janitor, street sweeper, begger, banker, everyone. It's almost time to chase that ring!"
remark: Kassim asks all SD fans to rise up in Jimmy Stewart, "It's a Wonderful Life" like fashion.
#6 Cincinnati Bengals WR Chad Ochocinco
@oGOchocino "For all the haters, I will never change!!!"
remark: Finally, An Ocho tweet that we can all agree with.
#7 Dallas Cowboy TE Martellus Bennett
@martyBTV "Hey we passed 8000 followers. Mmmm mmm good like Campbell soup"
remark: Couple of props here for Martellus. 1) Twitter has really put him on the map as far as visibility. 2) Kudos for a punchy twitter name. 3) Nice Andy Warhol pop-culture reference to Campbell soup cans. 4) Creative twitter trash talking.
PS: Martellus, we need to get some pictures of you on the red carpet!
#8 San Diego Charger LB Shaun Phillips
@ShaunPhillips95 "I'm changing my look for the season all business casual. I'm not only a businessmen (sp) but I'm a business man."
remark: Shaun gets his GQ on and let's us all know he means business MAN!
#9 New York Jet TE Dustin Keller
@dustinkeller81 "Anyone in Cortland have a pool table that doesn't mind getting their butt whooped?!?!?!"
remark: Dustin learns fast that Cortland, NY is alot like W. Lafayette, Indiana where he went to college at Purdue. Not much to do, but a pool table is always around the bend.
#10 Buffalo Bills LB Kawika Mitchell
@ka_mitchell55 "Goin back to yesterday, I would like to say thank u 2 the people n our cafeteria. The food is actually real good. Nice selection & good ppl"
remark: Kawika, shout outs to the folks from my hometown of Rochester, NY where the Buffalo Bills hold training camp are always worthy of a Top 10 tweet. Let's GO 59 and 585!!!
