DeAngelo Williams, Vontaze Burfict Engage In Twitter War

Well, there’s a headline I didn’t expect to write today.

Maybe it was created out of DeAngelo Williams’ comments that the Cincinnati Bengals would be his biggest rival in 2015, but Vontaze Burfict and Williams are having a little spat on Twitter.

I’m not positive what started the exchange but it appears Burfict was the first to tweet to Williams, responding to a third party tweet which has now been deleted. Williams quickly fired back.

Warning there is some foul language used below. So if you’re in work or have the kid looking over your shoulder, be on high alert.

So far, the exchange has appeared to fizzle out there. Though there are really no “winners” in a petty Twitter fight, Williams is certainly coming off more mature here. Burfict is a talented player but like Williams says, his ridiculous antics, on and now off the field, make him look like the same immature player who came out of Arizona State.

The NFL schedule will be released in the coming weeks, before the draft. We’ll find out when the first Steelers/Bengals game takes place. Mark it on your calendars. You can bet these two will.

    Meh.

    In a twitter “war” no-one comes off as mature.

  • Brian Tollini

    Sadly, still more mature than our presidential candidates.

  • Tim Goetz

    Dorks

  • RickM

    Burflict’s efforts at changing – as he assured he would do – lasted all of 5 minutes. Big surprise.

  • Tony Richards

    1,2,3,4 I declare a Twitter War.

  • PittsburghSports

  • Jones

    It’s like reading the “before” example in a “before & after” hooked on phonics ad…

  • Matt Manzo

    You can’t use emojis and call yourself tough! They both look silly.

    Seems as though our young men have turned into a bunch of little catty girls with this Twitter CRAP. Stop with the war of words and just be men. We have become a nation of catty insults and folks worrying about the size of one’s hands, give me a break. Just sayin!

  • VaDave

    I would rather vote for Burfict than those bozos currently running. Can you believe that in a country with over 300 MILLION people, This is the best we can come up with.

  • VaDave

    Back in the day, somebody would have broken his back.

    Junior High School revisited. Didn’t enjoy it back then, and I sure as h*ll ain’t enjoying it now.

  • dany

    LOL! Also, I bet Burflict could fund his own nomination. DeAngelo is a vet, he’s got to lay off this already; getting his name in the news so muchh

  • vasteeler

    The fact that he was only suspended 3 games after intentionally injuring numerous players the last 3 years is a travesty, how can the NFL claim to care about player safety yet have 3 years worth of evidence on tape of vontass burb*tch blatantly injuring or attempting to injure several players on different teams and their grand verdict is 3 games?? Brady was subject to receiving 4 games for deflated balls before his appeal, how is that more grievous than intentionally hospitalizing the athletes that make the NFL what it is? Marvin Lewis allows and condones that type of neanderthallic behavior, they should have lost draft picks and his suspension should have at least been 8 games minimum for repeated unsportsmanlike behavior

    This Bengals feud has got to stop. I was there for the playoff game, it got uuuggglllyyyy. I know, how about we end it the old, old fashioned way. We’ll send out Al Villaneuva, and they can send out whoever in the world they want, Burfict, Peko, Atkins, whoever, and last man standing wins. (My money is on the 6’9 330 Army Ranger)

    This is dumb lol. Just play ball gentleman

  • pittfan

    how the hell can you feel you done something with a “Tweet”?

  • jsteeler

    Keep it classy Deangelo!

  • William Weaver

    Twitter twits

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Pretty much. There is no “more” mature when it comes to Twitter beef. They both look dumb.

  • Phil Brenneman II

    Williams is way too talkative for my tastes. Regardless or context or how he carries himself I have just lost interest in him. I have always been about letting your play do the talking. He did do that and was a great pick up but just be quiet man.

  • Joseph Duffy

    Pretty lame stuff.

  • Steel PAul

    I’m calling the Cinci game lands week ONE!

  • Jeff

    When politics somehow come up in a sports blog….. Meh

  • nitch19

    It’s going to be a happy day when someone takes out one of Burfict’s knees…….karma Burfy…….it’s coming for ya……

  • WilliamSekinger

    Haha, it’s like Ryan Clark never left! πŸ™‚

  • Mainesteeler

    Regardless of how stupid Twitter is Burfict is I just rewatched wild card game and he totally knees Ben in the shoulder on that play. He’s a dirty player and back in the day someone would have taken him out in the first game. Such behavior shouldn’t be aloud in the NFL.
