The Best Tweet Ever Sent by Each of the 44 Super Bowl Starters

Wednesday January 29th, 2014

Our friend Brian over at Twitter recently sent Extra Mustard a breakdown of every Super Bowl XLVIII starter's Twitter handle. Going off that list, I pulled the best Tweet—based on either popularity, or humor—from each player's feed.

As it turns out, eight of the 44 players in question apparently don't like getting heckled on demand; they don't have Twitter accounts. For those guys, I improvised.
