Ah, who doesn’t love a good Twitter throw-down? Looks like we’ve got a pretty good one on our hands between Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck and Jets CB Antonio Cromartie.

Earlier today, as reported by Pro Football Talk, Hasselbeck tweeted the following: “Somebody ask Cromartie if he knows what CBA stands for.”

Then, Hasselbeck quickly deleted it. It appeared Hasselbeck was taking a shot at Cromartie – and possibly at his nine-kids-by-eight-mothers career – after Cromartie bitched about the labor negotiations between the NFLPA and owners and called union leadership an a------.

Now, Cromartie has responded in kind. Wrote Cromartie: “hey Matt if u have something to then say it (sic) be a man about it. Don't erase it. I will smash ur face in.”

Now, all eyes turn to boxing promoter Don King. When can we get these guys in the ring? After all, we’ll need something to watch/cover when the players are locked out.

UPDATE (3:38 p.m.):
Bad news for those looking for a fight. Tweeted Hasselbeck: "Sorry for the joke man. No hard feelings. DB's & QB's have a hard time getting along I guess sometimes. lol"

As long as Cromartie keeps talking, there's less time for him to pro-create with another woman and father another child whose name he will not remember! 

I think he's about to be a free agent (could be wrong), so he wants a deal done for selfish reasons and not what's best for the League and players.

Hey you moron, there are many more WHITE people on welfare than black.  Get your statistics straight, and honestly, just watch Jerry Springer and you will see what I'm talking about.  Its an economic thing, bot a race thing

It's on!!! Emotocon fight! I think Hershal Walker needs to pay Cromartie a visit and teach this guy a lesson about a true beatdown.

Does Cromartian know how to shut up? This guy has only gotten LOUDER by going from San Diego to New York. I think it is safe to say that Cromartian is not the Union rep for the Jets. The sad thing is, is that guy's like him would play a 25 game regular season if you told him to. Man this guy is an Idiot. I really don't know how there will be a season next year, not with 18 games atleast. The player's don't want it and is really getting compensated 2 extra games worth possibly ending a career 2 or 3 years early because of the possilbility of even more serious injuries towards the end of the season. Anyone care to tell me what good 2 more games would do teams like the Panthers of the NFL. Maybe 1-17, 2-16?

This is not a race issue but a matter of character and morals. I see both of these boys lacking in those 2 departments.

Hey xsaintcanex your one of the reasons why alot of people don't respect people like you in law enforcement.   You have no idea what Cromartie is like in person yet you came up with your own conclusion about him from an internet site and labeled him a criminal.  Your obviously jealous of the guy or something or it might be that you played high school football and failed, wich is now one of the many reasons you hate yourself and take it out on others because you had a false sense of power while you were in law enforcement.  You outta take a look in the mirror and realize that your one of the problems with society today, why would you want another man to go bankrupt just because your miserable,  your comment just tells me that your dissapointed with what your life has become so you wish the same on others.  That being said good luck to you and I hope you change your sh_tty attitude jerk.

Your reply really made me laugh. I never said I wanted Cromartie to go bankrupt, I simply stated my opnion on what I believe will happen to the guy when his career is over. Plus, you said I came up with my own comclusion about him from an internet site and labeled him a criminal. Yet, you spent several minutes on an internet site labeling me as a "failure" and a "jerk". Doesn't make much sense does it? And by the way my job in law enforcement is to try and figure out who is a criminal and who is not just by reading certain things a person does and how far I have gotten and how long i've done it tells me I do a pretty good job.
