NFL Twindex: Cleveland WR takes crown
It was a good week for pictures from NFLers on Twitter.
We had tourist shots of Larry Fitzgerald at the Lincoln Memorial and at The White House, a picture of Antonio Garay driving a Hello Kitty car, a shot of a receipt showing off just how much Michael Huff’s dad spent for groceries on his son’s credit card and a freeze frame of Josh Scobee’s locker on TV.
We at the NFL Twindex are in favor of all sharing. We seek insight into football lives, and do our best to weed through a lot of junk to find it.
If you see good humor, good explanations or yes, good pictures from an NFL player or coach or mascot or anyone on Twitter, please make sure we see it by calling our attention to it. Twindex headquarters can be found at @ESPN_AFCSouth and @PaulKuharsky.
To our new edition.
@MoMass11 -- "Random fact: aside from watching current weeks opponent, I always study G.Jennings, Fitzgerald & A.Johnson last game for tips & technique." I love the behind the scenes homework info. Also life info on a guy from Charlotte living in Cleveland."Asked cashier how her day was goin, she responds 'u must be from the south, ppl here normally dont speak unless they have a ?'."
2. CHRIS KLUWEPunter | Minnesota Vikings ... Last Poll: 5
@ChrisWarcraft -- Leader of the quality pictures. Gave us this whiteboard shot of one "translation" of the league's memo on faking injuries. And this gem came out of passing out tickets: "I just ticketed a police car at Mall of America. Hope he has a sense of humor. #itsfunnywhenimtheonedoingit" Also offered intelligent commentary in the midst of lots of talk about Troy Davis.
3. RAHEEM BROCKDefensive end | Seattle Seahawks ... Last Poll: NR
@RaheemBrock -- Made his plead regarding a potential fine for a hit on Ben Roethlisberger:"Dear commissioner goodell, please don't fine me for hitting Ben!It was not intentional!I was tripped by his O'line! Sorry!!! [elaborate smiley face that does not reproduce in ESPN.com's system]" Then tweeted a link to a story with a photo he intends to be part of his defense of a $15,000 fine.
@FABEWASH31 -- "Back shoulder fade is the hardest route in football to cover" I suspected as much, but it's nice to hear from someone who's done it."If you notice there's no mentions of Troy Davis on my timeline because I don't speak on things I know nothing about" Wish we could say the same of all football player tweets."Play Lotto don't play me you might win lmao" Can you suggest any numbers?
@DesBishop55 -- Plenty of NFL players read plenty of stuff. Still this is a surprise: "My official book club is starting soon.. 1st book on list is... James Patterson: kill me if u can" Who else is in the club? Know one elements of a pro athlete's life we don't consider often? Shopping limitations: "Random tweet: I hate shopping!! Mainly because stores discriminate, they never carry size 14 shoes.. Ha"
COMEDY@A_Train_92 (Austen Lane, Jacksonville defensive end) -- "Congrats #NancyGrace, u managed to produce something more painful to watch than ur tv show. Thanks Dancing With The Stars!"
CONTRACT STATUS@StevieJohnson13 (Stevie Johnson, Buffalo wide receivers) -- "I am a Buffalo Bill and that's how I want it to be. Never thought of trying to force my organization to talk contract when I have 1 more Yr."
FEEDBACK@ChrisHarrisNFL (Chris Harris, Chicago safety) -- "What do suggest i do Go to the facility at 1am right? RT@ChaseDawg: Spend some more time gettin that hammy better!"
REWARDS PROGRAM@ConnorBarwin98 (Connor Barwin, Houston outside linebacker) -- "I get a sack...and shiner sends me a case of beer...I need to keep this going #Texas #Awesome"
