New year and new feature time here at UKPigskin. Welcome to ‘Roughing the Tweeter’.
Roughing the Tweeter, you know, like roughing the passer? I know, I hate me too.
This new feature will consist of the top 10 tweets (in my opinion) from the last week surrounding all things NFL.
Journalists, fans, players – it doesn’t matter, if your tweet is good enough it will be featured. You never know, if you’re lucky, you might be able to tell the Grandkids about that time you were featured in UKPigskin’s Roughing the Tweeter article.
Anyway, here’s this week’s top 10 fresh off the back of wildcard weekend.
10. Wolverhampton Wildcats
I would be all up for a Tyreek Hill / Adam Traore footrace in the NFL.
9. Taysom Hill is an Alien
I mean. Just look at them stats.
8. Helmet to the head with that, Sir?
Strong opinion from Chris Long here but it’s not a bad one, to be fair.
7. The big dogs got taken down early
I’m going to pretend that I didn’t have New Orleans Saints to win the whole thing in my play-off predictor.
6. Russell Wilson ft Guitar Hero
I mean, it wasn’t the most impressive of victories in the world but I appreciate the Guitar Hero reference.
5. Tua’s Hips Don’t Lie
A thread. Tua declared for the NFL draft and he is going to be just fine, folks.
4. King Henry destroys Patriots’ throne
Tennessee Titans knocked off the reigning champions, New England Patriots, with a little help from Derrick Henry. Big truss.
3. Wildcard Warm-up
Deshaun would have been feeling baby blue if it wasn’t for that unbelievable overtime win.
2. Holy Cook
Apparently the Minnesota Vikings are really good at running the football. Dalvin Cook helps, though.
Happy 23rd birthday, Lamar Jackson.
