Willie Snead throws shade at Falcons in deleted tweet despite Saints going 7-9 last year

New, comments

Two of those losses were to the Falcons, but who’s counting?

You may remember Saints wide receiver Willie Snead from one, or both. of New Orleans’ losses to the Atlanta Falcons last season. Willie Snead doesn’t seem to remember those losses, because he’s still talking about the Falcons’ Super Bowl LI loss.

Snead took to Twitter to throw some shade at the Falcons. It all started with this tweet, back on February 5.

Friday, in a tweet that has since been deleted, he referenced the blown lead. How original.

Falcons fans didn’t love it.

And Snead responded.

Then Willie Snead retweeted this, apparently forgetting that finishing 7-9 is also trash.

This was the icing on the cake.

You know who else won the same number of Super Bowls as the Falcons did last season? Willie Snead and the Saints. But the Falcons didn’t finish 7-9.

Snead signed with the Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and has yet to play in a postseason game with the Saints. New Orleans finished 7-9 in 2015 and 2016, and while it’s not unheard of to make the postseason as a 7-9 division winner, the Saints did not win the NFC South in either of those seasons. New Orleans hasn’t made the postseason since 2013. Bless their hearts.
