Redskins’ Adam Carriker tweets some trash talk to Romo, Vick, Eli

adamcarrikerromo Getty Images

Ordinarily, it’s not a good look for a player who hasn’t seen the field in three months to talk trash. Unless it’s legitimately funny.

So on the “funny” exception, we’ll pass along a good piece of trash talk that Redskins defensive end Adam Carriker, who suffered a season-ending leg injury in Week Two, lobbed at Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

“Tony Romo, Michael Vick, and Eli Manning walk into a bar . . . to watch the playoffs,” Carriker wrote on Twitter today.

Fans in Washington will find that one funnier than fans in Dallas, Philadelphia and New York.

    Dude has a lot of funny tweets.

  2. tanzim12 says: Jan 3, 2013 5:59 PM

    wow so funny!!!

  3. snap0179 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:00 PM

    Add Adam Carriker to the bar list after this Sunday

  4. scoffaveli says: Jan 3, 2013 6:01 PM

    Nice. Talking trash when you didn’t have anything to do with the playoff run and when you don’t have to play against those guys until next fall. Lame

  5. illwillthemick says: Jan 3, 2013 6:01 PM

    has this guy ever seen a playoff game? he still isnt playing in one this year lol

  6. blacknole08 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:02 PM

    It’s not trash talk if it’s true. I thought it was funny!

  7. jag286 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:02 PM

    And Eli dropped his two SB MVP trophies on the bar and asked, “does anyone know who Adam Carriker is?”

  8. fcoprado says: Jan 3, 2013 6:03 PM

    This former top ten draft pick bust has been more injury prone than the number of times hes sacked the QB.

  9. sminco123 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:03 PM

    hahahaha

  10. ddaveyy says: Jan 3, 2013 6:05 PM

    It probably would have been even better if he was actually playing or if he ever played in the playoffs himself…

    Dave

  11. vancouvernfl says: Jan 3, 2013 6:05 PM

    and eli bought the bar from his superbowl winnings!

  12. davekezer says: Jan 3, 2013 6:06 PM

    Carriker has played pretty well in Washington since he’s been here, but this tweet would have been more effective if he wasn’t on IR for the majority of the season.

  13. kluuuuuuuuug says: Jan 3, 2013 6:06 PM

    —————————————————-

    Why not add him already? He’s not playing anyways.

  14. vbe2 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:06 PM

    It’ll be even funnier when he walks into that same bar next week to watch the playoffs.

    Dude shouldn’t be trash talking, especially about a QB that has 2 rings and 2 Super Bowl MVP awards.

  15. edhochuli says: Jan 3, 2013 6:06 PM

    Tony Romo, Eli Manning, Michael Vick walk into a bar…and have a beer and share laughs over how they’ve pummeled the Skins for years and years. Vick in particular brings up the thrashing he gave them on national television some years back.

  16. dallassux says: Jan 3, 2013 6:06 PM

    Funny tweet. It will be funny Monday morning when he wakes up out of the playoffs on the way to another redskin playoff loss.

  17. takingbacksundays5 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:07 PM

    Umm… That’s not funny. Actually, that’s pretty lame.

    And I’m a fan of a team that’s in the playoffs.

  18. kwalk4780 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:07 PM

    I have a joke as well. You went to college in Nebraska, and you also have to live in D.C. Ha, ha. Shut your mouth bro, you barely played this year and had minimal impact. Have your play back up the talk.

  19. britishraven says: Jan 3, 2013 6:07 PM

    Adam Carriker walked into a bar, and got placed on IR

  20. east96st says: Jan 3, 2013 6:09 PM

    Eli doesn’t tweet. Multiple Super Bowl rings make it too hard to type.

  21. inthearex says: Jan 3, 2013 6:09 PM

    next week the joke will go… Eli, Bob, Tony and Mike walk into a bar to watch the playoffs, Bartender says only Super Bowl MVP’s allowed. Eli drinks alone.

  22. goodellisruiningtheleague says: Jan 3, 2013 6:09 PM

    Oh well Seattle already won the game Sunday and just boarded their plane to New Orleans! No one can stop scumbag pete and the seahawks!

  23. nathanljensen says: Jan 3, 2013 6:09 PM

    Variations of this has been going around Facebook also using Rothlesberger, Rivers, Brees and I’m sure others.

  24. dallascowboys4life337 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:10 PM

    Who is this cat Neva heard of him. Did he even play when he wasn’t hurt. But yeah u can add him to that bar list matter Of fact how would he know who would be in the bar if he wasn’t in with them lololol

  25. thereisalwaysnextyear says: Jan 3, 2013 6:11 PM

    “Vick in particular brings up the thrashing he gave them on national television some years back.”

    Cause Vick has won what? He’s won nothing except overpaid contracts and prison sentence.

  26. guyljr says: Jan 3, 2013 6:13 PM

    Would be funny if he hadnt stolen the joke.

  27. rg3andthensome says: Jan 3, 2013 6:13 PM

    Beat them HAWKS!!!!

    HTTR!

  28. Nofoolnodrool says: Jan 3, 2013 6:15 PM

    Adam who and he said what?…..shameless dude ..shameless. Act like you belong there not paying to be there.

  29. stoutfiles says: Jan 3, 2013 6:16 PM

    It wasn’t a joke. He invited them all to the bar to watch the playoffs with him.

  30. zjfr2 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:17 PM

    How do you say Tony Romo in spanish?

    “Mark Sanchez”

  31. frankdatank23 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:17 PM

    Let’s see if rg3 can avoid the trend of mobile qbs getting off to good starts and then gradually getting worse as defenses catch on, durability etc. I’m rooting for him. Just can’t root for his team. Skins fans act a LOT like jets fans.

  32. billymc75 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:19 PM

    this guy went to The Chris Cooley of talking trash while you’re hurt. Makes no since

  33. nfceastfan says: Jan 3, 2013 6:23 PM

    has this guy ever seen a playoff game? he still isnt playing in one this year lol

    ———————————————————

    No… He’s been a Redskin his entire career :-)

  34. rtant2013 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:26 PM

    Keep trash talking Hawk fans, when you really have no reason to be as confident as you guys are. Good run game, and a 27th ranked passing offense, what do you guys have to be hyped about? Lynch gets shut down like all the rbs have been by the Skins this year, and Wilson is forced to throw, and he doesn’t have the best receiving core. Oh and don’t forget they’re coming into a VERY VERY loud and hostile environment, and they already haven’t played good on the road. Don’t worry though Russell, you’ll get one of RG3’s pep talks, but I’m sure he will say ” hey atleast you did better then Romo”. Haha

  35. censoredagain says: Jan 3, 2013 6:26 PM

    I’m a Giants fan, and I found it funny. Its not like he’s making it up

    And anyway, Bob has a seat reserved at their table on Monday morning for coffee and crumpets.

  36. mdpickles says: Jan 3, 2013 6:27 PM

    SeaChickens over the Skins 27-13.

  37. ss376 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:27 PM

    The funny part is that it was a Skins bar.

  38. sinestrojoe says: Jan 3, 2013 6:31 PM

    Too bad all he did was steal something floating around on facebook involving Eli, Big Ben, and Cutler…who is Adam Carriker anyway?

  39. andylucksneck says: Jan 3, 2013 6:39 PM

    Eagle, Giant, and girls fans are a bitter bunch.

  40. garyreasons55 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:39 PM

    Who is this imbecile?

  41. mazblast says: Jan 3, 2013 6:39 PM

    It’s a funny line, and would be funny if he had included my team’s QB, too. It’s a fact that my Steelers didn’t make the playoffs, but my life doesn’t go with it.

    Laugh, love, eat, sleep, drink, hope one of the two team sin the playoffs that I can’t stand doesn’t win it, and look forward to the draft and next season.

  42. solomon151 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:41 PM

    The funny thing is this guy is trash talking when he’s been nothing but trash his whole career. Six year pro and only has nine career sacks. It’s a sure bet he has occupied plenty of bar stools during his nfl career. Dork!!!

  43. giantsfan2104 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:46 PM

    Just imagine if a player on the Falcons’ practice squad decided to tweet:

    “It’s January, and the Saints aren’t in the playoffs. I guess Drew Brees wants an explanation. #Losers”

    Yeah. That’s how Carriker sounds right now.
    He’s been watching games from his couch since Week 2.

  44. ssac3408 says: Jan 3, 2013 6:50 PM

    This dude has been walking into bars watching the playoffs for the last 5 years! He has zero room to talk!

  45. modellforprez says: Jan 3, 2013 6:52 PM

    sure go ahead and put Ben & brees in the joke they’ve only won 3 super bowls andl been to a fourth….

  46. logicalvoicesays says: Jan 3, 2013 6:54 PM

    The NFC East is to be referred to as the NFC Washington for the rest of the RGIII Era. It’s our world and NY/PHI/DAL are lunchmeat.

  47. nfl fan says: Jan 3, 2013 6:57 PM

    It’s OK Adam, Eli probably deserves a break. I know he’s not as talented as you, having been traded for a 5th and 7th round pick to Washington, but he has won a couple of Super Bowls.

    P.S – Tony and Mike are saving your seat so you can watch the games Sunday.

  48. hrmlss says: Jan 3, 2013 6:57 PM

    London fletcher
    Richard Crawford
    Madieu Williams
    Josh Wilson
    Ummm
    Oh yeah Rob Jackson

    Nope, no Adam carriker, I was wrong sorry

  50. soundslikehail says: Jan 3, 2013 7:01 PM

    I love that so many people are offended by this. Cycles come and go, and the redskins cycle is likely waxing.

    Oh, I also love that people are irritated that Carriker is a “nobody” and shouldn’t be listened to. Pot, meet kettle; irony, meet idiots.

  51. RedRuffensor says: Jan 3, 2013 7:03 PM

    His remarks demonstrate a complete lack of carriker on his part.

  52. bleed4philly says: Jan 3, 2013 7:06 PM

    Go Seattle!!!

  53. boyshole25 says: Jan 3, 2013 7:07 PM

    Hey nfceastfan this guy was a top ten pick of the rams not washington so yea some fan you are genius

  54. skinsgal4life says: Jan 3, 2013 7:09 PM

    Yes, there are some obnoxious ‘Skins fans out there (like there are for all teams) but this tweet was pretty harmless compared to some of the other comments that a good many other players have made. People need to relax a bit and not take things like this too seriously. Go ‘Skins!

    That’s like being the tallest midget. The NFC East is TERRIBLE.

    Dude will be saddled up next the bunch after Sunday. They should all go to NFL.com and buy a Russell Wilson jersey as he is the future of the league.

    skinsfan91 says:Jan 3, 2013 5:57 PM

    Dude has a lot of funny tweets.

    This is the same guy that dresses up and pretends to be a pro wrestler.

    I will make sure I send him a tweet when the redskins lose in the playoffs “vick, eli, and romo walk into a bar…. and get a phone call from RG3 to save him a seat so they can watch the super bowl”

  62. fissels says: Jan 3, 2013 7:31 PM

    Careful, you may be joining them

  63. mikellie says: Jan 3, 2013 7:31 PM

  64. tfoz5150 says: Jan 3, 2013 7:32 PM

    …and it will be another 13 years until the skins see the playoffs again.

  65. jsrdc says: Jan 3, 2013 7:34 PM

    Carriker,

    That same bar will be hosting you and the rest of your 4skins teammates after Seattle beats you down like the little B*#ches you are.

    Beating an injury-plagued Cowboys team is one thing. Next week you play a healthy team on a hot streak, and lose BIG in your own house.

    Nice job of lacking Character, Carriker.

  66. logicalvoicesays says: Jan 3, 2013 7:35 PM

    seattlecoug says:

    The NFC West is a cupcake and one of those teams (Zona) are NFC Washington rejects. Oh and please stop trying to push your team jersey…everyone in the World wants an RGIII/Redskins jersey and the sales prove it. Besides, Seahawks jersey look XFL-ish.

  67. liddogg33 says: Jan 3, 2013 7:43 PM

    Man I honestly cannot believe how many Redskin CLOWNS there are on this site!!!! Talk about trash talking.. You must be joking!!!! And dont go talking to seattle about loud and rowdy home fields.. You have NO CLUE what a loud and rowdy home field looks like!! You guys just stick to your PATHETIC field conditions (trying to slow the other teams down) because your going to run into an old school SMASH MOUTH squad that can play just about any style of game you guys want them too.. And I personally cannot wait until the BEAST doubles the production of Morris!!!! This Seattle defense is CHOMPING AT THE BIT to shut all of your mouths up!!!!!

    GO HAWKS!!!

  68. johnnyballsack says: Jan 3, 2013 7:43 PM

    In about two years we can all tweet “Romo, Vick and Eli walk into a bar… and Carriker is the bartender”.

  69. donnymacjack says: Jan 3, 2013 7:45 PM

    Pretty sad the guy’s Twitter page background still advertises himself as “2006 Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year”. Talk about living in the past…

  70. mljohns says: Jan 3, 2013 7:48 PM

    Washington fans and players are taking a page out of the 2011 Detroit Lions “I Can’t Handle Success” Playbook. Look at those Lions, Skins fans…that’s your future.

  71. krissharvey says: Jan 3, 2013 7:50 PM

    Adam Carriker stats this season- 1 tackle….1. I am pretty certain Tim Tebow has more tackles.

    Eli Manning-Two Super Bowl Rings

    You can still pick on Romo and Vick however.

  72. thebadguyswon says: Jan 3, 2013 7:51 PM

    I’m a Patriots fan, and even though I hate the Giants sooo much… Eli has more rings and SB MVP’s then Adam’s games fully played this season… I like the Redskins, but don’t trash talk if you havn’t been to, won, or even contributed a full season for the playoffs.

  75. catquick says: Jan 3, 2013 7:56 PM

    That tweet is hilarious!

  79. deddmunnie says: Jan 3, 2013 8:19 PM

    It would have had a chance to be funny if I hadn’t seen it tweeted 20 times and on facebo
    ook a half a dozen times before he did it.

    I’ll give him a break though, he’s bored, there’s only so much Wrestling and Twitter one person can handle.

  80. shutupbrees says: Jan 3, 2013 8:20 PM

    Woulda been funnier if I didn’t see a similar “tweet” 3 days ago from a different high profile person.

  81. ravensplease says: Jan 3, 2013 8:44 PM

    It’s just a joke folks and not a very funny one. Lighten up. I thought the mark Sanchez joke was funny lol

    Gotta love how every skins article has a comment section loaded with seahawks fans crying about how annoying skins fans are. Ironic

  84. skinsfan91 says: Jan 3, 2013 9:14 PM

    So fans can talk all the trash they want but someone who’s actually a high quality player(check last year’s stats) who was injured in week two can’t say anything. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense.

    And it’s funny how all these Seahawks fans have come out of the word work. Skins fans are on here every week, win, lose, or draw. Now they’re on here puffin’ their chests out. “Go Hawks!” Real original.

  85. alewatcher says: Jan 3, 2013 9:26 PM

    Adam Carriker walked into a bar and said “Ouch!”

  86. manningbowl88 says: Jan 3, 2013 9:28 PM

    thats funny coming from a guy who hasnt played the entire season just might be sitting next to eli at the bar bec he wont even be playing in the game LOL..

    just dont get to close to my boy eli his rings might blind you.. both of them!

  87. locuno1 says: Jan 3, 2013 9:29 PM

    funny thing is eli has more rings then him and the redskins will lose on sunday

  88. lilrob10201 says: Jan 3, 2013 9:53 PM

    I don’t think you should be talking trash when you did not help contribute to your team.

    __________
    Wow. Take things way too seriously much?

  101. tupacnum1 says: Jan 7, 2013 1:42 AM

    How ironic it is for Adam Carriker to post insulting comments about Tony, Michael and Super Bowl champion Eli. To state that they will be watching the playoffs from a bar or home. He needs to first win a Super Bowl before making comments that he made about the three quarterbacks. And he had the audacity to tell the three not to brag.

  102. jsrdc says: Jan 7, 2013 2:11 PM

    @nfceastfan,

    Actually, Carriker played his first two seasons in St. Louis. Regardless, he and his teammates will be enjoying the rest of the playoffs as outsiders.

    Seriously, did any sane fan think the Redskins were going ANYWHERE in the NFC? Please……
