Manti Te'o still gets upset by trash talk about his fake girlfriend

Monday December 22nd, 2014

Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o will always be known as the guy with the fake girlfriend, and opponents won't let him forget it.

During the Chargers-49ers game on Saturday night, San Francisco tackle Anthony Davis decided re-opening old wounds would be the best form of trash talk.

Marshawn Lynch gives an extremely appreciative interview​

Te'o actually had a pretty solid game, leading all players with 11 tackles. He also had a sack.

But if he wanted to get under Davis' skin, he should have just asked him why he wasn't playing basketball
