Whitner gets feisty on Twitter, takes shots at Bills, Talley

Donte Whitner seems to have what some people like to call "Twitter muscles."
The Cleveland Browns safety went on a rant Thursday night after NFL Network unveiled its annual Top 100, as voted on by other players. Whitner, who did not make the cut, used Twitter to question the validity of the rankings and voting process.
When a fan expressed surprise that Whitner didn't make the Top 100 cut, Whitner answered, "it's ok. . . . players don't vote on that. Nor does coaches."
"The people @nflnetwork votes on that" Whitner wrote. "No one in the 49ers locker room voted! None of my friends around the league voted!"
The clash continued when the NFL Network Twitter account fired back at Whitner, denying his allegations.
But the fireworks didn't end there.
Whitner then began taunting fans of his former team, the Buffalo Bills, joking about the team possibly moving.
Naturally, that didn't sit well with the fans -- or former Bills linebacker Darryl Talley and his wife.
Talley's wife started firing insults at Whitner and after a back-and-forth that included insults of Talley's kids, Talley himself jumped in on the convo and didn't hold back.
The Twitter beef ended with Whitner challenging Talley to a boxing match.
It will be interesting to see if the Twitter beef ever culminates into anything more. Either way, we were entertained.
