Lesean McCoy Rips Knowshon Moreno On Twitter


Lesean McCoy Twitter Knowshon Moreno

Damn. Don’t hold anything back Lesean. Philadelphia Eagles running back Lesean McCoy responded to a tweet by ESPN’s Skip Bayless attacking fellow 2009 draftee Knowshon Moreno.

Bayless’ tweet complimented Moreno’s 93 yard, 1 touchdown performance in a 51-48 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

“Peyton is doing Peyton always does. But Knowshon is KILLING the Cowboys.”

McCoy’s quote tweet was short and simple.

“Knowshon sucks”

It’s rare for a star professional athlete to publicly and aggressively rip another athlete like this.  We’re unsure where the bad blood stems from but Moreno was highly regarded out of college and was selected 12th overall (McCoy was taken 53rd).  Clearly, McCoy has the better career stats – over 4,300 rushing yards and 32 TDs to Moreno’s 2600 rushing yards and 19 TDs – and is winning the Twitter war 1-0.
