It's no secret that New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford has one of the NFL's most active Twitter accounts. On Tuesday, his followers were stunned when he posted, "The Giants are stink and I'm no good! Fly eagles fly!"
It didn't take long for everyone to surmise that the out of character tweet presumably came from a Philadelphia Eagles fan who hacked into Weatherford's Twitter account and not the punter himself.
I'm just guessing but the "Fly eagles fly!" probably gave it away.
It didn't take long for Weatherford to let everyone know that he had been hacked.
Sorry folks, I was hacked. I think it's time for new password. My apologies.

But even that didn't stop his followers from having a little fun with the phony tweet.
