Philadelphia sports reporter/media personality Howard Eskin has had a long standing Twitter war with NFL WR Cole Beasley. It dates back to Beasley time with the Dallas Cowboys, who are the Philadelphia Eagles most-hated rival.
Today, after playing just two games with Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Beasley announced his retirement from the NFL.
Here is Eskin’s tweet on Cole Beasley’s retirement.
Back in 2017, Philadelphia reporter Howard Eskin takes a shot at Cowboys QB Dak Prescott on Twitter.
Beasley then responded.
This is the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard. Dak is that dude. https://t.co/bnlUlYsWkV

I’m not cryin. Just defending my qb. We got our ass beat. I’m not whinin about it. I just hate when people try to make it about one guy.

Things went quiet for a while until the Cowboys got demolished by the Eagles on Sunday Night Football. Eskin went ahead and slammed Beasley after the Eagles proved to the world they’re the best team in the NFL.
Beasley, the millionaire football, player stood on the last leg he had to put this reporter troll to the ground. Naw but I got two kids whose college is payed for already and they’re still in diapers. 😉

This is kind of a poor look for Beasley. I get him responding, but to bring money into it is a poor look. It’s like him saying he’s fine Dallas lost because he can go home to all of his money, but he doesn’t realize that Eskin put all four of his kids through college.
