Talk about a weird week in the NFL. Skip Bayless was trying to divert attention away from Peyton Manning and his teams last minute win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday when LeSean McCoy went on the troll.
McCoy responded to Skip’s tweet about Denver’s Knowshon Moreno with the following tweet of his own:
Knowshon sucks RT @RealSkipBayless: Peyton is doing what Peyton always does. But Knowshon is KILLING the Cowboys.

We have no clue why Shady and Moreno are at odds and USA Today’s Lindsay Jones tried to get an answer out of the just as confused Moreno:
I asked Moreno if he knew why Lesean McCoy would say sucked. Moreno had no idea, knew of no issue w/ him.

LeSean McCoy and Knowshon Moreno were both part of the 2009 NFL draft and Moreno was selected No. 12 overall by the Broncos while the Philadelphia Eagles waited until the second round to pick up McCoy. Perhaps there is still a little bit of NFL draft time envy at play in this scenario.
So is McCoy just trying to prove the Broncos wrong for a decision they made in 2009? Based on his recent Twitter attack we wouldn’t put it past him.
Moreno eventually responded but in a much more mature manner:
Glad @CutonDime25 was watching our game tonight.Great team win,lets keeprolling.#5-0#LetHatersHate#ShotsWereFiredButNoOneGotHit

In the meantime Knowshon had the last laugh with 93 yards and a touchdown while the Broncos and Cowboys racked up more than 900 combined passing yards in a grueling 51-48 win for Denver.
