Steelers' DeAngelo Williams and Bengals' Vontaze Burfict get into fight on Twitter

New, comments

Oh boy...

You didn't think the feud from the Bengals and Steelers' playoff game in January was over, did you?

We know you didn't as the NFL has brought to our attention detail after detail of mistakes made in the officiating and rule changes sparked by the game. We (and seemingly the players, too) just cannot move on from this loss, even though it was three months ago.

On Wednesday, Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams shared his ill-advised opinion that the Steelers would have made a run at the Super Bowl if not for Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict's tackle on Antonio Brown. Williams must be forgetting that had Burfict not make that tackle, the chances of the Steelers winning the game were slim to none. But, let's move on.

"For me, my rival throughout my year will be the Cincinnati Bengals," Williams told ESPN on Wednesday. "I don't think there was any doubt in my mind if AB was not interfered on or hit the way he was hit, however you want to label it -- there's no doubt we go on and give the Broncos hell."

That quote apparently sparked a Twitter fight between the two as Burfict took offense to what Williams had to say.

(Note: I've taken screenshots of the conversation rather than embedding it because 1) Burfict blocked me on Twitter (WHY!!!!!!!) and 2) one of the Tweets has already been deleted and I assume more could be.)

It looks like Williams was previously blocked by Burfict, too, but unblocked so he could talk some smack to him. This probably isn't the best way for Burfict to be spending his time, even if he's right. It looks like the feud between the Bengals and Steelers won't be ending anytime soon.

What do you make of all of this, other than clearly, Williams isn't a fan of Burfict.
