Just in time for Super Bowl LI, Jimmy Kimmel brought back Mean Tweets NFL Edition, and there were some gems.

The Super Bowl is this weekend, if you haven’t already heard, which means late night is digging in while they can. Jimmy Kimmel’s network won’t be airing the Super Bowl — ABC/ESPN won’t ever be airing it in the foreseeable future — but that doesn’t mean he’s not timely.

Kimmel dusted off his Mean Tweets segment for a second go-around with NFL players. The first batch of NFL Mean Tweets presented us with some gems, and that’s true once again of this second feature.

It’s not a long segment, but stars like Odell Beckham Jr., Josh Norman and Tony Romo all sat down to read what the people of the internet had to say about them. Not every tweet is a home run, but it’s hard not to chuckle when Romo is defending peeing while sitting down.

Among the highlights:

  • “Rob Gronkowski is one of the dumbest people in the world. I have no problem tweeting this because he probably can’t read it.”
  • “I’m tired of people saying Russell Wilson is too short to play quarterback. He’s ugly, too.”
  • “JJ Watt looks like a fat Macklemore. Hahahaha.”
  • “Maurice Jones-Drew is thicker than a milkshake.”

Absent are players like Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and others we’d love to see as part of this self-depreciating segment. But this is hardly the last time Kimmel will be busting out Mean Tweets with NFL players and there’s plenty of time to corral other stars of the game to sit down and live in the loathing.
