Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden absolutely loses it on Twitter haters

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Brandon Weeden hasn't had the best start to his tenure as starter in Tony Romo's absence, although he did have a remarkable game-tying drive against the New Orleans Saints in Week 3.

And while some fans might be slamming him on Twitter, Weeden isn't paying them any attention. During a media session Wednesday, the quarterback discussed deleting his Twitter before his rookie year for this specific reason, per Dallas Morning News:

"I was pretty interactive in college," Weeden said. "I remember everybody that always talked crap, they never had a picture of themselves. It was some cartoon or something, and it was always probably a 12 year old kid that damn sure never played quarterback, and damn sure never played quarterback in the NFL. I don't need that kid telling me, 'What the hell you thinking throwing to this guy?' I don't need that.

"I'm 32 years old. I don't need a 12 year old telling me how to play quarterback."

As the quarterback for the Cowboys, it's probably the better move to stay off social media entirely.

Weeden and the Cowboys (2-2) will try to get back on track when the host the New England Patriots (3-0) on Sunday.
