Hours after Peyton Manning announced his retirement on Monday, DeAngelo Williams pooh-poohed the idea that the 18-year veteran could be given any credit for last year’s Super Bowl run—literally.
Look Peyton is a hall of fame qb who couldn't play dead in a western last year but career over all is astonishing but last year was 💩😷— DeAngelo Williams (@DeAngeloRB) March 7, 2016
The Steelers running back proceeded to argue with Manning’s supporters on Twitter during the afternoon on Tuesday, to the point that his coach had to intervene.
Tomlin, instead of calling or texting Williams, told him to quiet down on Twitter.
It was Tomlin’s first tweet since he attended a Penguins game back in November
Perhaps Williams had a point, but he dragged it out so far that his own coach had to use a medium he hardly touches to keep the veteran in line.
