Happy Valentines Day. Plenty of Football personalities sent "love" to their family, friends, signficant others, and Twitter Followers throughout the day. But there was surprisngly a good chunk of hatred being tweeted as well. Let's not waste any more time and get to the Football Tweets of the day (my comments are labeled BE and in Bold).


Randy Moss vs Chris Carter:


NFL @nfl: Carter: Moss "has more quit in him" than any superstar; @DaRealOtisMoss fires back: nfl.com/news/story/090…
BE: Carter's comments regarding Moss "quitting" during games, spawned the following tweets from Randy...

Randy Moss @DaRealOtisMoss: @criscarter80 its sad how u stroked ur own ego when u were suppose to b my mentor!then u wonder why karma bites u in the a$$
#goodlukwithhof

Randy Moss @DaRealOtisMoss: Cc no matter I still luv u bruh

CBS Sports @CBSSports: Randy Moss lets the world know Cris Carter stunk as a mentor - bit.ly/MossCarter

BE: Not sure how Moss can go from the 1st tweet, in which he bashed Carter, to later telling him he loves him. I feel like this feud is just heating up between the former Vikings teammates and I'm very much looking forward to that.

mike freeman @realfreemancbs: Irsay announcement is coaching hires. So, there's that.

trey wingo @wingoz: @realfreemancbs one of the greatest pump fakes in twitter history

Pro Football Weekly @ProFootballWkly: #Colts news @JimIrsay referred to is Clyde Christensen staying on as quarterbacks coach & Jeff Fitzgerald as LB coach

Andrew Brandt @adbrandt: Colts news involves coaching announcements. For Peyton watch, move along. Nothing to see here.

BE: What a fake-out. See all this chaos Irsay created with his tweet? Everyone hoped the "NEWS" was going to involve Peyton, instead we get an announcement on the Colts filling all coaching position...SWEET.

-The NFL is not a company it's a nonprofit organization that makes a lot of profit

trey wingo @wingoz: Roger Goodell's new salary about 20 mil per annum. as Mel Brooks once said.. "it's good to be the king"

BE: The NFL is a business. A very successful business. Goodell is like the NFL's CEO. CEOs tend to make a TON of Dough. #EndOfStory

Nate Dunlevy @18to88: Peyton Manning is a control freak. A play every town, take every snap, manage every detail competitor. He's a QB, not a mentor
