Apparently, some NFLers aren't smarter than second graders.

This past week, a second-grade class from Elmwood Franklin Elementary in Buffalo, N.Y. sharpened their grammatical knowledge by correcting tweets from three players: 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver, Lions receiver Titus Young, and Patriots receiver Wes Welker.

They shared the results on their Facebook page, along with the following description:

Second graders are serious fans of football—and grammar! Elmwood Franklin School's second grade students applied their lessons in proper sentence structure, noun and verb usage, spelling, and punctuation to correct the tweets of professional football players. The students partnered in groups and together found several mistakes in these tweets, including the incorrect spelling of "a lot."

Culliver's original tweet has since been deleted. It has not been a good week for the 24-year-old, who made waves with his anti-gay remarks. Young can't seem to keep his name out of the headlines, so this is no surprise. Welker ... well, we'll chalk it up to the "holiday spirit."

It's common knowledge that a vast majority -- OK, pretty much all -- professional athletes will never become Pulitzer Prize-winning scribes. Kudos to these kids for furthering that perception in a pretty creative way.
