Jimmy Kimmel aired his second version of NFL Mean Tweets on Thursday night
One of the funniest bits out there on late night television these days is his Mean Tweets series. Celebrity Mean Tweets are his most popular subject, however he has also done Obama Mean Tweets.
On Thursday night during his show on ABC, he released the second version of NFL Mean Tweets ahead of Super Bowl LI in Houston on Sunday. A former Arizona Cardinals player was one of the participants.

Former Cardinals quarterback and 2017 Pro Football Hall of Fame finalist Kurt Warner read one of the tweets. He read a tweet that referenced the way he walks. His tweet comes at the 0:44 mark of the two-minute piece.
The segment is always great for a laugh or two or more. This version was no exception to that.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt. and former University of Arizona and current New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski are included in the segment this go around.
Warner wasn’t the only potential 2017 Pro Football Hall of Famer that read off a tweet. Former Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis read one. The dig on Watt was pretty funny.
The one about Los Angeles Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa was one of the more creative tweets. Good comebacks were said by Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo and Gronk.
One has to wonder if those who tweet really man what they say or if they are looking for attention. It is probably a little of both.
Former Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin looked genuinely shocked at what was being said about him and New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. appeared upset. That was likely just an appearance though.
These guys have to have thick skin to come on the show and do this anyway. Maybe the next version will include some current Cardinals players?
