Brendon Ayanbadejo put his foot in his mouth Sunday ... or whatever the modern-day equivalent is when someone types something without thinking it through and then sends it out for the world to see via Twitter.
In the case of the Baltimore special teams player, it was bad enough that folks in New England saw his since-deleted bit of trash talking he sent out regarding the Patriots, who will face the Ravens on Sunday in the AFC championship.
"Are you watching the game pats vs texans?" Ayanbadejo tweeted during the New England-Houston divisional playoff game. "If so you see the hurry snap offense catch em b4 they set up. It's a gimmick. Their offense is good enough to be successful with out that. ..."
Ayanbadejo mocked the fact that the Patriots played a hurry-up offense "in a sport that is predicated on mano y mano" and also brought up other incidents from the team's past, including the spygate scandal.
