Maurkice Pouncey Tweets Some Nasty Tweets to Fans

Maurkice Pouncey Lashes out on Twittermaurkice pouncey pittsburgh steelers

Maurkice Pouncey was criticized for promoting a rap song shortly after the Steelers loss to the Broncos.   When some fans lashed back at him, he started making some very nasty comments to fans.

Maurkice…..   what were you thinking????

Steeler Nation is THE BEST fan base of any team.    While Maurkice was frustrated with his injury and inability to help the team, it is our opinion that he really made some rookie moves by lashing out against those who ultimately pay his high wages – the fans.
