It happened at times in the offseason, but this is the first noteworthy example of in-season trash-talk, Twitter style.
On Tuesday, Bengals receiver Chad Ochocino asked the Green Bay media to tell Packers linebacker Nick Barnett that Chad is “coming for his head” on Sunday at Lambeau Field.
On Wednesday, the Twitter talk began.
Said Barnett of the comment, “Was I suppose be scared????? Lol lol all I know is if you come across the middle.. You can go head and….KISS DA BABY.”
Said Chad: “dude I will beat you up on the field, off the field, whatever, when I come cross the middle I’ll hit you in your mouth boy!!!!“
And in the main event, Hulk Hogan will square off against the Macho Man.
Hey, the way the NFL is going, they can keep the Pro Bowl the week after the Super Bowl and fill the two-week gap by hosting their own version of Wrestlemania, with Rex Ryan playing the role of Captain Lou Albano.
