Steve Weatherford, Jason Kelce get into Twitter beef


New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford said some things last week about the Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback situation that irritated a number of people. One of them was Eagles center Jason Kelce, and he let Weatherford know on Monday.

During an appearance on WFAN’s “Boomer and Carton Show,” Weatherford compared Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow to a variety of cars.

“I’m gonna give you a Ferrari [Bradford] that maybe won’t be running all the time, or I’m giving you a nice Cadillac sedan [Sanchez],” he said, as transcribed by ESPN.com. “It’s not the fastest but you know what you’re going to get out of it. Bradford can go from zero to 60 in three seconds, but you don’t know if he’s gonna start up some days.”

Weatherford added that Chip Kelly will get himself in “serious trouble” if he signs the oft-injured Bradford to an extension. He also said he would love for his daughter to date Tebow, but he wouldn’t want Tebow taking snaps for his team.

And now, for Kelce’s response:

Weatherford tried to explain himself and apologized if his quotes were seen as offensive.

We’ve heard much worse things said about Tebow.

I suppose comparing Bradford to a Ferrari could be a compliment, but I’m sure none of the aforementioned quarterbacks were flattered by Weatherford’s metaphors. This isn’t the first time Weatherford has shared a controversial opinion about someone else in the NFL, so no one should be surprised.
