Some things in life are better left unsaid.
Twitter and social media in general are simultaneously one of the greatest inventions ever and one of the worst.
It provides a really cool platform to stay connected with people from all walks of life in an easy and user-friendly way. While on the other hand, it is often the cesspool of our society.
At least this week a lot of New York Jets fans were able to get a good laugh out of it.

Wait He Said What?
On Sunday the Seattle Seahawks faced off against the Green Bay Packers. It was a matchup between two quarterbacks who were returning to the fold for their respective teams in Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers.
The game was hyped up as a duel between two of the best passers in the NFL, but it proved to be a slugfest instead. The Packers ended up winning 17-0 and for the first time in the Wilson era, Seattle was shut out.
Despite that factoid, ex-Jets safety Jamal Adams decided to go on Twitter to highlight a specific play from that game:
“Meme that s***! #Prez”
With 2:39 remaining in the third quarter, Rodgers scrambled around and chucked a pass into the end zone that ended up getting intercepted by Adams.
After sending out that tweet, Adams was immediately roasted on social media for a few different reasons.
This tweet came a day after a game in which his team lost 17-0 and fell to 3-6 on the season. Seems odd to highlight an individual play in a team sport after a tough loss in the midst of a brutal season.
That was only the third career interception for Adams and his first in a Seattle uniform in what has proven to be a down year in 2021.
After breaking the single-season sack record for a defensive back in 2020 (9.5), Adams has zero sacks this year.
It is also worth noting that the 26-year-old signed a record-breaking four-year deal for over $70 million this offseason. That comes off of a blockbuster deal with the Jets in which Seattle dealt away two first-round draft picks and a third-rounder for the star safety.
Just not a great look.
Throughout his young career, Adams has proven to be a me guy and this tweet was another example of that.
This will continue to be of particular interest to Jets fans at a minimum through the next calendar year. The Jets own the Seahawks’ first-round draft choice this April and they have gotten incredibly lucky.
Wilson had never missed a game in his NFL career and for the first time ever that changed this season. Another interesting factoid is Seattle has never had a losing record under the Russell era, the Seahawks are on the precipice of that with a 3-6 record through the first 10 weeks of the 2021 season.
