Shemon & Sheppard – In The Afternoon

The Cincinnati Bengals are in the AFC Championship… again. It was a surprise in the 2022 playoffs. Not so much this year. The phrase “act like you’ve been there before” het said all the time in football. Most of the time it’s in reference to a player scoring a touchdown or getting a sack. But in Eli Apple’s case, he doesn’t want to hear that. Since Cincinnati’s convincing win over the Bills on Sunday, Eli has been a total savage on twitter. And I am here for it. Eli Apple on twitter is gold. So far he has gone after Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Bills Mafia, and maybe even Damar Hamlin. I think we all agree that Hamlin is the one person here who shouldn’t be brought down to twitter barking. But, that’s where we’re at.

Eli Apple has turned himself into a solid football player. After stints with the Giants, Saints, and Panthers, Eli has found a home in Cincinnati. And it’s fitting for the Ohio State product to find success so close to where he played his college ball. He is a good player. However, he is acting like he just won the Super Bowl on twitter. Now, most old curmudgeons will say this is out of line, and that he should be focusing on his game with the Chiefs. I 100% disagree. We need more of this in the world of sports. It’s not real hate- it’s sports hate. And sports hate is a good thing. It’s great that athletes are becoming friends off the field/court. But there is something to rivalries, and Eli is creating a ton moving forward. Eli Apple on twitter is gold. Here are some of his best tweets since the Bills game.

  • Retweets

     

  • Digging at Diggs
