Larry Fitzgerald's Brother Has a Tweet-full For Kurt Warner
As football fans, we have come to expect various degrees of pissing and moaning from wide receivers when they aren't getting the ball. Call it the nature of the beast.
It usually happens on the sidelines, or in the locker room and now, like everything else, has found its way to Twitter.
