While the Buffalo Bills won’t be in the Super Bowl, fans can take a little bit of solace in the fact that the Cincinnati Bengals are going home as well.
With their loss to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, the Bengals finished one game shy of a second Super Bowl in a row. And now, Cincinnati cornerback Eli Apple has the opportunity to enjoy his time in Cabo.
For those who don’t remember or haven’t seen, Apple took shots at Bills players following the Bengals’ win over Buffalo in the AFC Divisional Round last week. After the win, Apple took to Twitter to share some thoughts on Bills quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
After a video was shared of Diggs clearly upset with his quarterback, Apple retweeted it stating:
“Someone get them in couples therapy … I’ll pay on God”
It didn’t stop there, though. Apple continued poking the bear.
The good news for Eli Apple, now, is that he has time to go catch up with the Buffalo Bills on an early vacation
Ah, yes. It’s the old saying, “what goes around comes around.”
Apple enjoyed himself on Twitter a week ago when times were good, but he has yet to tweet after the Bengals’ loss on Sunday.
Maybe he caught an early flight down to Mexico. That would explain it.
The best part about this whole Apple saga, too, is the fact that he has never even been a top corner in this league. He’s had some good games, sure, but for the most part he’s been average at best. There’s a reason he has been with four teams already during his young career.
That’s too bad, considering he’s a former first-round pick out of Ohio State. It’s a bummer he couldn’t live up to the billing of being a first-round talent playing for a team like the Buckeyes.
He’s still only 27 years old, though. There’s time for him to continue developing.
Maybe he can work on some things on the beach over the next week.
