LOOK: Lions offensive linemen Taylor Decker and T.J. Lang get into Twitter spat

If you happen to follow Detroit Lions offensive lineman Taylor Decker on Twitter, you have probably noticed by now that he can be rather sensitive when somebody calls him out.

A week ago, Decker tweeted out his love for Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett following the Buckeyes 39-38 come-from-behind win over Penn State. In fact, Decker went as far as calling Barrett “the greatest quarterback in Ohio State history.”

Well, that was then and this is now. On Saturday, Barrett led the Buckeyes into Kinnick Stadium and they were absolutely destroyed 55-24 by the Iowa Hawkeyes. It was a loss that is arguably the most embarrassing since Urban Meyer took over as head coach.

Following the game, Decker’s teammate on the Lions, T.J. Lang, had a simple question for him.

Not surprisingly, Decker seemed to take the question personally. (Either that or he was just having some fun.)

The next tweet after that back-and-forth came from a Lions fan and it was perfect.

For the record, J.T. Barrett is not close to being the best quarterback ever to play at Ohio State so we award the win in this one to T.J. Lang.


LOOK: Lions Golden Tate trolls Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston for worst pre-game speech ever

Since coming into the NFL, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has earned the respect of his teammates. He is clearly the leader of their team and most believe he will be for the foreseeable future.

But on Sunday, Winston may have lost a couple of supporters when he gave the worst pre-game speech we have EVER heard before an NFL game.

Take a listen as Winston tries to get his teammates fired up before Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
