With NFL Combine this week it looks like the veterans in the NFL didn’t want the rookies to take up the whole spotlight. New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman go mano-a-mano in a war of words on Twitter. You may ask what started this beef and it was when Revis did not taking too kindly to what Sherman said on show ESPN 32. Revis missed most of last season games due to a knee injury and so when Sherman was asked who are the top 5 cornerbacks in the NFL, Sherman didn’t have Revis on the list due to the fact he was out for most of the season. The Seahawks cornerback said, “I guess he’s mad, you know. Something is going on his side where he’s upset. But he’s been out of the game for a year. What have you done for me lately? That’s the game. That’s how it is and that’s how it’s going to be.” So of course to settle the issue like men they involved all of their followers on Twitter to take a front row seat in their “discussion”. For Sherman it was all about stats and play. For Revis it was who had the most Twitter followers to feel that he is in the right. In case you missed it here are some of the tweets that went back and forth. Who do you think won?
