"Knowshon [Moreno] sucks," McCoy wrote insulting the Denver Broncos running back, during the Broncos-Cowboys game Sunday.
Knowshon sucks RT @RealSkipBayless: Peyton is doing what Peyton always does. But Knowshon is KILLING the Cowboys.— Lesean McCoy (@CutonDime25) October 6, 2013
So McCoy started his weekly press conference letting reporters know the tweet was no mistake.
"I just want to say I think Doug Martin is a heck of a running back," McCoy said, unprompted.
"So he doesn't suck?" someone in the assembled crowd asked.
"Nah," said McCoy. "He's one of the better running backs for sure."
"I don't want to talk about the past," he added. "It is what it is. What I said is what I meant."
But the insult didn't seem to bother Moreno, who tweeted back at his new detractor.
