NBC football analyst Cris Collinsworth was not too pleased when he read some harsh criticism from sports personality Bill Simmons.

It looks like we have a rivalry stewing up between Cris Collinsworth and Bill Simmons. It all started with a criticizing Tweet sent out by Simmons on Sunday night:

Little did Simmons know that he would be poking at a sleeping giant and would totally get annihilated by Collinsworth once he saw the tweet:

The NBC Sunday Night Football analyst has since deleted the Tweet.

These are the type of tweets we see between UFC fighters to build up a fight or even rappers who are feuding with each other. Therefore, this can only mean one of two things:

  1. Collinsworth is about to drop a fire diss track on Simmons
  2. They are getting ready to settle their differences inside of the Octagon.

In all seriousness, it’s impressive to see that Collinsworth can fire back when he needs to. It will be interesting to see what else the analyst might have up his sleeve for the future.
