We all know that Christmas is only considered the most wonderful time of the year because it falls during football season. To make your NFL year as informative and enjoyable as possible, here are 25 Twitter accounts that will keep you up to date and laughing out loud all the way to the Super Bowl.
At this rate, Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be throwing to Drake and LeBron.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 10, 2014
Adam Schefter eats, drinks, and breathes football. When you’re sleeping, he’s finding out who the Buffalo Bills are taking in the sixth round of next year’s NFL Draft. If you want all the latest info on what’s happening in the NFL, there’s no better person to follow.
2) Evan Mathis
The offensive guard for the Philadelphia Eagles is as funny as he is talented. He also trolled the sports world by making everyone jump to the conclusion that he was forcing the rookies on the team pay a $64,000 team dinner bill.
3) Chris Kluwe
Let’s be clear. The Ravens releasing Ray Rice is because people are upset that the behavior was made this public. They had no issue before.— Cassandra (@ChrisWarcraft) September 8, 2014
If there’s anyone that’s not afraid to speak his mind about the NFL’s behavior, it’s Kluwe. He’s not afraid to say the things you didn’t think he was allowed to say. The former Vikings punter is definitely worth a follow.
4. Chad Johnson
At Walgreens & i asked for 50 condoms. 2 girls behind me started laughing. I turned around & looked them in the eyes and said, “Make it 52”— Chad Johnson (@ochocinco) March 31, 2012
The artist formerly known as Ocho Cinco may not be in the league anymore, but he’s still as entertaining as ever. He doesn’t take things too seriously and always makes light of situations that would probably bother other athletes.
5. NFL Memes
Football > Basketball pic.twitter.com/Mc5zwYMOKj— NFL Memes (@NFL_Memes) June 6, 2014
Want to find all the pictures you’ll be texting to your friends in one place? NFL Memes is the perfect account for you. They post a near-constant stream of hilarious pictures and jokes.
6. Jay Glazer
Sometimes when I feel down about my own IQ I hop on twitter to remind myself some ppl are so dumb they don’t know how stupid they really are— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) May 24, 2014
Glazer is the NFL Insider for Fox and is a great source for up to the minute news and updates without a bunch of unnecessary speculation.
7. Matt Ufford
[Jerry Jones gazes longingly at the Baconator]— Matt Ufford (@mattufford) May 9, 2014
“I’ll have the salad, I s'pose.”
The SBNation producer is a great follow since, not only does he have funny and insightful info, he also retweets some of the best sports content on the internet.
Richard Sherman was getting blasted by someone on Twitter about his performance in the Super Bowl and instead of responding with words, he sent them the image above and became the lord over all haters and trolls. He’s entertaining and unpredictable, to say the least.
9. Rob Fee
Exclusive look at Eli Manning’s inspirational texts to Peyton before today’s game. pic.twitter.com/vwJ5MWSusW— Rob Fee (@robfee) January 19, 2014
Rob’s NFL tweets are absolutely hilarious (as are his tweets in general), but his running jokes about Eli Manning are fantastic even if you aren’t the biggest sports fan. He’s definitely worth following.
10. Lana Berry
I want Richard Sherman to record my outgoing voicemail message. hopefully everyone will feel threatened and just text me instead.— Lana Berry (@Lana) January 20, 2014
While Lana’s main focus is baseball, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t follow her during football season as well. She tweets a ton but you’ll enjoy every one of them.
11. Timothy Burke
The head linesman from Sunday’s Eagles-Browns game is refereeing a 7th-grade football game in Oklahoma tonight.— Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) September 11, 2012
While he conquers more than just the NFL, Timothy Burke is a sports journalist who actually knows what he’s talking about.
12. Matthew Berry
For those of you drafting today….May the Fantasy Gods be forever in your favor.— Matthew Berry (@MatthewBerryTMR) August 24, 2014
The term Fantasy Football Expert is ridiculous but if there is one person that deserves the title it is, without a doubt, Matthew Berry.
13. Boring As Heck
it’s that time again… pic.twitter.com/9v6Uih2gpE— stefan heck (@boring_as_heck) June 18, 2014
Last year Stefan started a hilarious project where he would jump into mock drafts and take Tim Tebow (or similarly ridiculous selection) in the first round just to watch the other guys in the room completely have a meltdown. His NFL commentary is great as well, so it’s a perfect combination.
14. Jason Mustian
It would be awesome if one of the Puppy Bowl players got sent to jail for staging people fights.— Jason Mustian (@jasonmustian) February 6, 2011
Jason is behind some of the internet’s funniest tumblr accounts including Pornhub Comments on Stock Photos and TL;DR Wikipedia so the fact that he also tweets about football makes it a perfect combo of funny.
15. PFT Commenter
Its allmost like the Redskins play there games on some sort of cursed burial ground— PFTCommenter (@PFTCommenter) September 14, 2014
What’s not to like with PFT Commenter? Hilarious commentary. Hilarious articles. Hilarious screenshots. Hilarious everything.
16. John Clayton
here is the new sports center commercial. http://t.co/OjtT7r9m— John Clayton (@ClaytonESPN) September 6, 2012
He’s one of the most reliable sources for NFL updates and information, plus he made what may be the funniest ESPN SportsCenter commercial of all time last year.
Johnny Manziel runs 4.56 forty; almost a full second slower than he drinks one— Fake SportsCenter (@FakeSportsCentr) February 23, 2014
Some of the jokes by this parody account are so spot-on, you’ll swear it was the real SportsCenter account getting a little liberal with their tweets. Of course they cover all sports but their tweets seem shine the most during the NFL season.
18. Chris Mortensen
Peyton Manning notified by NFL he is fined $8,200 for taunting of DJ Swearinger. No appeal. Peyton: “I accept it. Money well spent.”— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) August 28, 2014
If you’re going to follow a bunch of NFL experts and analysts, you have to add Mortensen to the list. You can see him on NFL Sunday Countdown, Monday Night Countdown, and almost any other ESPN program that talks about football. He knows what’s up.
19. Lindsey Yok
People are live-tweeting a spelling bee. We need football now. This is urgent @nfl— lindsey ok (@lindseyyok) May 30, 2014
If you’re a Baltimore Raven’s fan that also has an unbridled hatred for Matt Ryan, this is the perfect account for you.
20. Faux John Madden
Larry Fitzgerald should put on Troy Polamalu’s jersey, then Carson Palmer won’t stop throwing it his way.— Faux John Madden (@FauxJohnMadden) September 9, 2014
We aren’t the biggest fans of parody accounts, but Faux John Madden may be the exception. It’s basically evolved into a giant machine cranking out sports jokes
21. DiGiorno Pizza
Normally corporate accounts aren’t something you say is a must follow, but no other company does football like DiGiorno. Their smack talk, along with the hashtag #DiGiorNoYouDidnt is constantly entertaining and full of pop culture references so even the most casual of fans can find humor in it.
22. Rich Ohrnberger
I signed with the Chargers!! Unfortunately, just read the fine print.. freelance photography is strictly prohibited in the shower room #WTF?— Rich Ohrnberger (@ohrnberger) March 22, 2013
The current San Diego offensive lineman doesn’t tweet about football a lot per se, but he gives he a hilarious first-hand account of what it’s like to play in the NFL.
23. Lydia Dominick
Being a Bills fan is a lot like marriage: you love through the good & the bad. Also, drinking helps. @TheBillsMafia- til death do us part.— Lydia Dominick (@LydiaDominick) September 9, 2013
Sometimes it’s nice to follow a person that reports info and gives commentary, but also is a fan of your favorite team. If you’re a fan of the Buffalo Bills you probably already know Lydia, but even if you’re not, she has a great account worth checking out.
24. Ike Barinholtz
Yes the Patriots lost but Tom Brady gets to go home and have sex with Giselle while Peyton Manning has to hang out with Papa John— Ike Barinholtz (@ikebarinholtz) January 19, 2014
You probably know Ike from The Mindy Project or The League, but he’s also a huge Chicago Bears fan and is always reliable for a few great NFL jokes each Sunday. His sorrow after each Bears loss is also quite entertaining.
25. Jacy Catlin
A list of article pitches I made to Sports Illustrated that were rejected pic.twitter.com/hq1hBdfJ0j— Jacy Catlin (@ieatanddrink) September 6, 2014
If you’re tired of actual NFL updates and news, why not follow someone who makes jokes about sports that are so absurd you might not even realize the jokes are about football. He’s not your source for sports news, he’s the insider on “sprots.”
