Lions Players "Tweet" About Preseason Performance

Monday, August 17, 2009

Some recent Lions Tweets ...

  • WR Keary Colbert was likely responding to his multi-drop outing against Atlanta with the following "tweet," published soon after Saturday's 27-26 win.

    "Gotta rebound like Dennis Rodman... That's life. Football is one of life's best teachers.." - kearycolbert

  • RDE Cliff Avril saw extensive action against the Falcons, but didn't necessarily produce. The Lions registered zero sacks against Atlanta, and Avril never got his hand on a Falcons quarterback.

    "thanks still somethings to clean up but we all felt good bout the win," he tweeted in his response to another user. Username: cliffavril.

  • Safety Stuart Schweigert registered three tackles and assisted on another during the win. But his strong play wasn't lost on anyone -- least of all himself.

    "I also got 4 wrap ups today. But whose counting, eh?" remarked the Twitter newbie, who has also been begging Colbert for some Twitter "followers." (Colbert has 2,463 to Schweigert's meager 82).
