Anthony Davis Sends Vulgar Postgame Tweet Defending 49ers for Celebrating
The Lions and 49ers had a skirmish at the end of their game Sunday, a 25-19 victory for San Francisco. Coach Jim Harbaugh was pumped after his team’s victory and gave opposing coach Jim Schwartz a forceful handshake. Schwartz followed him down the field to confront him about the shake, and several players became involved. No punches were thrown, but words were exchanged. Even more words were shared after the game.
49ers offensive lineman Anthony Davis (pictured above), separated Schwartz from Harbaugh. After the game, he sent a tweet bragging about winning in Detroit. He claimed he saved Schwartz by separating him. He also sent this vulgar message:
Davis deleted the tweet, but he engaged in even more trash talk with Lions defensive lineman Cliff Avril via Twitter. Avril questioned Davis’ professionalism for sending the tweet, and said “We’ll meet again and see what’s up.”
Davis then accused Avril of only acting tough on Twitter, and then reminded the defensive lineman that he was pancaked during the game.
It was a big win for the 49ers, and one that surprised many people. But Davis should keep his enthusiasm in check and remember that this is week six, not the Super Bowl.
