Have you ever noticed a similarity between Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois and Carolina Panthers quarterback (and former Auburn Heisman Trophy winner) Cam Newton? Some Twitter users did last night and shared screenshots from Florida State’s game against Alabama to share with the masses for confirmation.
This tweet in particular caught the eye of someone at the social media team with the NFL’s Panthers, and a response was issued.
Well, that is quite something. Are the Panthers having some innocent fun, or was someone behind the Panthers’ Twitter account jabbing Florida State a bit when they were down. Not only did Florida State lose the game, but Francois was taken out of the game and later seen in an air cast on his leg with what appeared to be a serious leg injury. But one can only wonder if the Twitter user behind the Panthers account
has a rooting bias against Florida State, or perhaps Alabama. Or maybe it was an innocent joke just to pump up the franchise’s own quarterback?
The world may never know.
