Damontre Moore is taking heat from all sorts of directions these days. After yet another silly penalty on Sunday, coming a week after he was benched for a bad penalty two weeks ago, Moore is likely hearing it from New York Giants coaches. He is also hearing it from ex-Giants running back Derrick Ward, who took to Twitter today to basically tear Moore apart.
On Sunday, in a tweet that has apparently been deleted, Ward said Moore "might be the dumbest player in the NFL."
If you are familiar with Ward's Twitter account, he has a penchant for emotional, over the top, rants. Moore apparently took offense.
Yo so I wake up this am to see a DM from Damontre Moore asking me do I have a problem. And y I called him the dumbest player in the NFL.— Derrick Ward (@derrickward32) November 2, 2015
I'm not going to embed all of Ward's tweets ripping Moore, but let's string together a few of Ward's tweets:
" ... in unreality I didn't call him the dumbest player in the NFL. I was just reiterating what he called himself."
There is plenty more if you feel like reading the whole thing. Moore's only public response was this:
Derrick ward is comical— Damontre' Moore (@tmoore94) November 2, 2015
What do I think of all of this? I think I actually wish I wasn't giving Ward's words more of a platform that Twitter already did. I wish the guy would go away. I find Moore's play, as a third-year guy in the league, completely indefensible. This sort of foolishness, though? If I was Moore I would just ignore this stuff. It's not worth his, or anyone's, time.
