Our favorite Twitter trash talk of the weekend

One cool aspect of Twitter is that fans get to see the players are often just fans.

We noticed a lot of NFL players excited about the draft, and discussing whether their teams made the right picks or not.

Our favorite moment of the weekend came in the form of some trash talking though.

Bills cornerback Drayton Florence asked his followers what undrafted players have the best shot at making the Buffalo roster.

Jaguars wide receiver Mike Sims-Walker’s answer: “Whoeva u guard in practice!”

The two players were once teammates, and Sims-Walker made it clear he was just messing around.  Then again, Florence was a huge free agent bust in Jacksonville, cut after one unproductive season there.  There’s probably some truth to Sims-Walker’s words.

  1. Sims-Walker is becoming a fan favorite in Jacksonville.
    Once a week, he invites all his twitter followers to a “Jag Night on Mike”. Sometimes he takes his fans to the movies, bowling, etc… Actually the next one is tonight!
    All MSW (that’s Mike Sims-Walker for the slow people) twitter followers are invited to Dave & Busters in Jacksonville to watch the Orlando Magic game and eat some food at 8pm!
    From MSW’s twitter: “Jag nite at dave n busters in the show room tonite @8pm for the magic game, free food in drink! Everyone invited!” http://twitter.com/MIKESIMSWALKER

    pretty cool… but Chad Ochocinco’s been doin that stuff for a while here in Cincinnati.
    I’m a Steelers fan but Chad gets a bad rep, but you don’t hear about that kind of stuff that he does here in Cincinnati.

  3. lol. I’d much rather see players use twitter like this rather than Darnell Dockett bitching about his teams plans and Santonio Holmes, looking for sexy ladies to do a video shoot or talking about waking and baking.

  4. Sims-walker is a DOUCHEBAG!!!! He should be glad that he doesnt play the Bills this year!!!! Might get his big blockhead knocked off!!!! Florence may have been a bust in jaguar land, but has been a solid player since joining Buffalo!!

  5. I heard the Pittsburgh QB likes to take people clamming. But just the ladies though. Whether they like it or not. And if their BF doesn’t pull a gun or somethin’

  6. That is up there with the best SIZZLA’S of all time for the Real Tweets……
    Nice one MS-W
    Nice one

  7. @JerseyJints?
    Huh?
    When you sign a 6 year contract and get a $10 million dollar signing bonus…only to get released 12 months later. That is what you call a huge free agent bust.

  8. Ochocinco has been doing that for a while now. Takes his followers out in almost every city he goes to. Personally, I think it’s great when players give back to the fans on such a personal level like that. It surprises me more players don’t do that.

  9. ejtowne is just mad that Mike Sims-Walker caught the game-winning touchdown against the Bills last year.

  10. KM91,
    My favorite memory of the Buffalo game was buying the club seat 2 rows behind the Bills bench for $25. And of course me trying to bribe Lindell with $3 to miss the field goal that he never got a chance to attempt.
    That was one fun game that we almost blew. TO and that 90 yard TD catch, the O lineman for Buffalo snapping his leg, I could hear it and I was sitting on the Jags 25 and it happened around the Bills 30.

  11. This is funny stuff.
    I like Florence, too…he covered well and played physical last year.
    A career rebirth? I think so!

  12. D Flo only sucks because he isn’t allowed to headbutt five yards past the line of scrimmage.

  13. florence performed well last year with the bills. he was a pretty big part of the number 2 pass defense in the league.
    sims-walker is a great receiver too, i’m sure they’re just playin around.

  14. @ gojev, my bad i thought he was signed as a free agent out of college (a la snead, blount etc). in my haste i glazed over the name so didnt recognize referrence to someone who got PAID.

  15. Dafish, I don’t think I want to relive watching Eric Wood break his leg.



    Ironically enough, the guy who fell on his leg was just cut today.

  16. Oh no not that intention at all. I was recalling what transpired, I hope Wood is good to go this year.

    Please tell me your not a Bills fan. Because obviously your not because if you were you would know that we play Jacksonville at home on October 10th you idiot.
    To all my fellow BillsBackers ejtowne is officially ejected on grounds of retardation.

  18. Love Sims-Walker, Like Florence a lot, the bills pass d didnt miss a step when anyone was hurt, Mckelvin, Whitner, Scott etc. We have some depth at DB. I think its funny how Florence was taking peoples jobs from them in San Diego then goes to a horrid Jacksonville Secondary and gets called a bust? Florence was a former 2nd rounder out preforming 1st rounders like Jammer and Cromartie when he left in FA 2 yrs ago, it actually happens to a lot of defensive backs in the league. (nate Clements, Gary Baxter, Dangelo Hall) Some teams and Some CB’s just dont gel, Then theres guys like Florence Charles Woodson, D Hall, Fabian Washington, who change teams and look revived.
