Ed Note: The following New York Giants "Twitter War" comes courtesy Bloguin's national NFL hub This Given Sunday and our own Brad Gagnon. It was clearly light-hearted, but that didn't make it any less weird to see two embattled young New York Giants take shots at each other on Twitter Tuesday night. After all, the Giants are 0-6 and David Wilson and Rueben Randle -- picked first and second in last year's draft -- have both made a few notable mistakes along the way.  It all started when Randle retweeted Wilson's fairly positive tweet, adding "hell up." Hell upRT @4stillRunning: Make sure y'all ride around and get it #allday — Rueben Randle (@RuebenRandle) October 15, 2013 I'm old, so I had to look this up. But Urban Dictionary says it essentially means "shut up."  This is what ensued... @RuebenRandle hey randle u suck ur on the bench of ma fantasy team — David E. Wilson (@4stillRunning) October 15, 2013 Randle responded with a picture... RT @4stillRunning: @RuebenRandle hey randle u suck ur on the bench of ma fantasy team pic.twitter.com/NispZShrOd — Rueben Randle (@RuebenRandle) October 15, 2013 Which garnered this response...   And on... @4stillRunning u go get in urs! Oh wait...u might fumble it — Rueben Randle (@RuebenRandle) October 16, 2013 @RuebenRandle drop another pass and I'm DROPPING U from my fantasy team #butterfingers — David E. Wilson (@4stillRunning) October 16, 2013 @4stillRunning fumble another ball ima put u at the end of my bench like coach Coughlin did. — Rueben Randle (@RuebenRandle) October 16, 2013 Things appear to get personal... Finally the kill shot... And the final response... @4stillRunning "Wilson takes the kickoff. He has room on the sideline (crowd cheers). He cuts back...FUUMMBBLLLEEE!!" — Rueben Randle (@RuebenRandle) October 16, 2013 They clarified that they were basically just having fun...   On a serious note me, @RuebenRandle and THE GIANTS love the game and winning We make mistakes but know we always play hard for the Team/Fans — David E. Wilson (@4stillRunning) October 16, 2013 But that didn't make this any less entertaining for fans following along, mainly because it was sort of a peak inside the locker room. Would it have been easier for fans to laugh about if the Giants were 6-0, rather than 0-6? Sure, but let's keep in mind that these guys are both 22 years old. Tom Coughlin might prefer that they razz each other being close doors, but they don't deserve to take heat for this. I'm betting they still will....
