Pacman Jones has never held back his opinions of his opponents, and he had plenty to say about Cleveland Browns receiver Terrelle Pryor after the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Browns 23-10 Sunday.
After holding Pryor to one catch for three yards in the game, Jones said in his postgame interview he thinks Pryor is “garbage.” Jones then proceeded to look in the trash can for Pryor.

According to Jim Owczarski of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Jones said Pryor was “just arrogant.”
“I have the utmost respect for (Browns head coach) Hue (Jackson), but certain (expletive) I don’t tolerate from young punks, really, basically. A (expletive) suburb kid that wants to act like he’s the toughest thing in the world, because he done caught a couple of balls. He’s just arrogant. You could see it with his teammates. Did you all not see him, when he was pushing and cussing at RGIII on the field? So I pay attention to everything. I told RGIII how the (expletive) you going to throw him the ball when he’s talking to you like that. You’re the (expletive) quarterback.
“It’s just little things. Y’all know who I am. I don’t really don’t get into personal battles because I’ve got respect for a lot of people, but certain situations it just demands me to speak. Truthfully I could give two (expletive) about Terrelle Pryor and his career and whatever he done.”
Earlier in the week, Jones said Pryor was “just a guy to me.” Pryor responded with a relatively mellow tweet:
Two weeks ago, New York Giants defensive back Janoris Jenkins tweeted “u really sucks” at Pryor following the Giants’ 27-13 win over the Browns.
Whatever Pryor is doing to ruffle the feathers of his opponents is working. Unfortunately, Pryor plays for the Browns, so his opponents will likely get the last laugh for the rest of the season.
