Cardale Jones usually stays busy on Twitter and that didn’t stop when the Ohio State Buckeyes got shutout in the Fiesta Bowl.
When the Buffalo Bills drafted Cardale Jones in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, they knew they were getting a quarterback project with a big personality. With time, Buffalo was aware that Jones could be the QB steal they were looking for.
Coming out of Ohio State, Jones has a lot of upside, but it will take a lot of hard work and experience before he is trusted with an NFL offense.
While Tyrod Taylor has been manning the Bills’ offense all season, with the exception of their season finale, Cardale Jones has found himself inactive almost every game and hasn’t seen any action since the preseason. Although that was expected, Jones has been making his voice heard elsewhere.
More specifically, Twitter.
Most of the time, he is tweeting about his beloved Ohio State Buckeyes and defending their honor at any cost. That mission became a little difficult on Saturday when the Buckeyes were featured in the Fiesta Bowl vs. the Clemson Tigers with a chance to make it to the playoff championship. The Buckeyes would end up getting shutout 31-0 and faced an embarrassing end to the season — more embarrassing than the Buffalo Bills.
While the game was going on, Jones sent out a fury of tweets showing his frustration with his alma mater. Let’s run through his little tirade real quick:
After the game, he felt the need to defend Buckeyes’ current quarterback J.T. Barrett for a lousy performance. For those who don’t remember, Jones and Barrett were in quite the QB battle during the 2015 season after Jones won the Championship for Ohio State in 2014.
Stop all these "JT trash" tweets, when I started last season & we struggled, it was "Cardale trash we want JT"it ain't the QB????☕️????
If you don’t follow Cardale Jones on Twitter, then you’re missing out on some social media fun that comes at a daily rate. For example, he didn’t stop to comment on Ronda Rousy’s lousy performance in the octagon on Friday:
Over here heartbroken man, if I was there, I'd jump in that cage like STOPPPPP!!!!! LEAVE HER ALONEEEEEE https://t.co/TIqxJu4Ze8
I love Cardale Jones‘ personality and think he can be a valuable piece to this offense in a few years — if he’s still around. There’s a chance we will get to see him play vs. the Jets, but it’s not guaranteed.
Either way, there’s an even better chance we see him in action next season at some point. For now, we will just sit back and enjoy his tweets.
