Weeden bashes Twitter: ‘I don’t need a 12-year-old telling me how to play’
Twitter is the prime social-media outlet for ranting and raving, as folks love to do, especially when it comes to trashing sports personalities who are struggling.
“I was pretty interactive in college,” Weeden said, per the Boston Herald. “I remember everybody that always talked crap, they never had a picture of themselves. It was some cartoon or something, and it was always probably a 12-year-old kid that damn sure never played quarterback, and damn sure never played quarterback in the NFL. I don’t need that kid telling me, ‘What the hell you thinking throwing to this guy?’ I don’t need that.”
Weeden further vented:
“I’m 32 years old. I don’t need a 12-year-old telling me how to play quarterback.”
Weeden admitted he still had a Twitter account, though he’s only tweeted a handful of times in the past two years. The Twitterverse is, of course, fired up in full with Weeden hate now since he has lost both of the Cowboys’ last two games as a starter. And it’s no wonder Weeden is irritated when he’s the subject of tweets like this one.
Unfortunately, as long as Weeden keeps losing, the trashy tweets will keep flowing. The forecast for nicey-nice tweets doesn’t look promising in Week 5 when the Cowboys host the red-hot, undefeated New England Patriots on Sunday.
Weeden’s best shot is to either ignore Twitter altogether, or just to keep his fans entertained by posting more stuff like this.
