BC doesn’t focus too much on non-Pageviews Twitter burns, but even we were in awe after Cris Collinsworth ethered Bill Simmons and his cancelled HBO show today.
So Bill was doing his usual thing on the Twitter Sunday, tweeting about the slate of games as well as his beloved Patriots. But he also mixed in direct shade towards Collinsworth:
Somebody needs to gently break the news to Collinsworth that the Pats have a weak front 7 and that's why Seattle's o-line looks good.

Didn’t seem like a huge deal at the time, but Collinsworth just responded to the barb with an epic death blow:

Cris has already deleted the tweet, but the Internet will never forget.
