Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Thomas Davis made some interesting comments about Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger during an appearance on NFL Network. Afterward, he was blasted on Twitter by Steelers offensive lineman Zach Banner, who called his comments “idiotic,” and said Thomas’ take was “uneducated and sad!”

Davis said that he feels Roethlisberger “chose not to” play last season and that he “gave up” on the team because the roster wasn’t amazing.

Video from the segment was shared on Twitter.

Banner saw the video and responded with some fire, taking aim not only at Thomas but “click-bait thirsty networks” as well.

Roethlisberger may not be the easiest guy to work with in the NFL, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that he was completely plugged into the Steelers even though he couldn’t play last year.

Also, it’s not like the man didn’t have a torn ligament in his elbow, an injury he still isn’t fully recovered from roughly a half year after the fact.

So, it’s easy to see where Banner is coming from here.
