Going forward, David Price should probably be more careful with what he posts to Twitter.

The Tampa Bay Rays' ace found himself in hot water after maligning several baseball writers in an October rant.

And now Price has once again stumbled into the spotlight after posting another insensitive tweet. The 28-year-old Cy Young Award winner meant well with a Thanksgiving-themed message, but he ended up offending women everywhere.


Predictably, Price has heard from upset followers:





Price could learn a thing or two from his manager, Joe Maddon, on how to entertain followers without offending them.

On Sunday, Steve Weatherford of the New York Giants booted five punts, two of which traveled more than 65 yards. His 54.6 yards-per-punt average was his second highest total of the year.

On Monday, the NFL rewarded Weatherford with a drug test. Random? He thinks not.


Weatherford, a workout fanatic, seems a little insulted by the NFL's request.

Interestingly, this is the second time a punter has gotten drug-tested after having a big night. On Oct. 21 Colts punter Pat McAfee was asked for a urine sample after a big hit on Denver Broncos return man Trindon Holliday.


In both instances the drug test is probably a coincidence, but you've got to love the reaction by both punters.

This is actually somewhat familiar territory for Weatherford. Before the Super Bowl in February between the Ravens and 49ers, Mitch Ross and Christopher Key of Sports With Alternatives to Steroids (S.W.A.T.S.) cited some pro athletes, including Ray Lewis, Johnny Damon, Brett Favre and Weatherford, for using its products. Ross said Weatherford used "performance chips," which are tiny holographic patches worn on the skin at Chinese acupuncture points that supposedly help the body maintain and replenish its energy supply.

According to Weatherford, who threatened legal action for having his name dragged into the conversation, Ross has since apologized to him and said he will not mention the punter's name again.

"I'd have to think the reason he used my name is because of my fitness level and how people view me as being a fitness freak," Weatherford told ThePostGame in February.

Is Weatherford really a fitness freak? Judge for yourself:

He once used the shot below as his Twitter profile photo:

And here's an Instagram photo from October:

Teammates have said Weatherford is the pound for pound the strongest player on the Giants.

The trade between the Jets and Buccaneers that sent cornerback Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay was in April, just before the NFL draft.

Apparently it has not been enough time for some Jets fans to let it go. They are still tweeting at Revis, and let's just say these are not love notes.

Last week, Revis decided to respond.

Just two weeks ago everything was looking up for the Green Bay Packers. The team was 5-2, riding a four-game winning streak and looking like an NFC contender.

Then Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone and the entire complexion of the season changed. Green Bay lost to the Chicago Bears last week and to the Eagles on Sunday. After backup Seneca Wallace left Sunday's game with an injury, third-stringer Scott Tolzien entered the game. He kept the Packers alive, throwing for 280 yards and one touchdown, but it wasn't enough.

Green Bay's unfortunate quarterback situation prompted actor James Van Der Beek to send out this sad and hilarious tweet. You may remember that Van Der Beek played quarterback Jonathan "Mox" Moxon in the 1999 film, Varsity Blues.


Ouch. Van Der Beek would probably be a cheaper option than Matt Flynn, whom the Packers are working out Monday, but it's unclear how his skillset would translate to the pro game. And if Van Der Beek thought there was pressure to win in West Canaan, he won't believe the scrutiny applied to the Packers in Titletown.

In case you've forgotten Van Der Beek's performance or haven't seen Varsity Blues, check out the film's trailer.
