NFC South teams have weather jokes on Twitter

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

North Carolina is currently staring down the pipe of 2014's SNOWPOCALYPSE 2.0 (a.k.a. the second time the state might get more than two inches of snow). Certain parts of the state are getting "pelted" with snow. Like Charlotte, where the Panthers play.

So the team's Twitter account fired out a picture of Bank of America in the snow with Game of Thrones line.

This was a very good tweet and featured excellent social media strat. But the Tampa Bay Buccaneers went up top on Carolina, pointing out that it's (almost) always sunny in Tampa Bay.

Boom, roasted, etc. I guess we can call it a day except OH GOD THAT'S THE FALCONS MUSIC.

That's a pretty sick line. Combine the weather with Matt Ryan's nickname ("Matty Ice") and you've got a nice little zing on your hands. But the Bucs aren't going to go quietly into the night. Not with Darrelle Revis on their hands.

If the Panthers were smart, they'd tweet out a picture of Greg Hardy with some sort of "We're working our magic in Hogwarts" joke or a "Krakken will eat your face" line. That would show them.

But this is pretty good too:

Your move, Saints. Your move.
