ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) — In the spirit of the Jimmy Kimmel Live television segment “Mean Tweets,” the Buffalo Bills have released their own spin on the popular series.

On Tuesday, the team released a short video of players reading harsh Twitter posts about them. As unkind as it sounds, “Mean Tweets” is a comedy piece, and the Bills show their fun side with smiles and laughs as they read the cruel and obnoxious messages.

The tweets ranged from those seemingly crafted by a schoolyard bully — “Richie Incognito looks like somebody stuck a 9-year-old’s head into the shoulder pads of an NFL player,” to downright obscene — “Jerry Hughes, get the f*** off my team,” as one Twitter user wrote of the linebacker.

No one was safe from the digital onslaught, from players to coaches.

Assistant head coach Rob Ryan was compared to “a grandma in the middle of the woods of West Virginia that opens the door holding a shotgun,” by someone in the Twitter universe.

His brother, head coach Rex Ryan was not spared either. One Twitter user mocked the coach’s pride in his team, saying “This just in: the footballs were inflated along with Rex Ryan’s head. And the Bills still suck.”

When all is said and done, the Bills and their fan base continue to have faith (and laughs) through seasons of adversity. See the full “Mean Tweets” video below.
