PFT take on Albert and his twitter account

Branden Albert bids farewell to Twitter

Posted by Mike Florio on March 7, 2013, 8:58 AM EST

It came with much less fanfare than Arian Foster’s recent exit from the 140-character social media platform. But in the end the result was the same.

Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert has abandoned Twitter.

The pulling of the plug came in the hours after Albert expressed defiance regarding the possibility of moving to right tackle, following the unexpected release of starter Eric Winston.

Starting with “nope” regarding the possibility of moving to “you damn right” regarding his reluctance to be anything other than a left tackle, Albert drew a clear, deep line in the sand.

Thus, as of this posting, and as several of you have pointed out, Albert’s page is completely gone.

Chances are that Albert’s agent contacted the player with something along the lines of “what in the hell are you doing?” before explaining that Albert was setting the stage for either looking weak by later going along with whatever the coaching staff tells him to do or engaging in conduct detrimental to the team by refusing to follow orders.

There’s also a chance that, if Albert doesn’t sign his one-year franchise tender, the Chiefs will eventually rescind it. Coach Andy Reid did that twice in Philly, with defensive tackle Corey Simon in 2005 and linebacker Jeremiah Trotter three years before that. If the tag is removed at any time after the draft, Albert will have a hard time getting paid a lot of money to play any position on the football field in 2013.

So, basically, the social-media monster known meekly as Twitter has claimed another victim.

Like the rest of us, Albert knew the risks. And yet all too many of us eventually give in to the impulses that result in 140 or fewer characters we’ll never be able to fully live down

The bottom line? While Albert is not the overall issue, he is apart of it. The Chiefs are 25-55 with Branden Albert at left tackle.

Seriously? It's about respect. LT is the big man on the totem pole on the o-line who gets to take on the best pass-rushers. You don't just shunt someone over after they have performed well over the last several years.

Be a team player. Play for the name on the front of your jersey. If the team that made a huge investment in him to begin with needs him to play a different position, be open to it. Don't go on twitter and whine about it.

Respect? LOL what a joke. Nobody respects a loser. That's what Albert has been since he has entered the league. 25-55 since he graced us with his presence at left tackle.

I think Albert is a decent left tackle. But put it into prospective here. He's not the second coming of Willie Roaf.

He should. Fans pay his salary ultimately. If he doesn't, that's all I need to know about the player/professional he is.

Cuz Willie Roaf would have picked this team up and carried it to the Super Bowl? Ridiculous. Let's throw out the baby with the bath water.

How dare he not like taking a demotion! HOW DARE HE!

I'm pretty sure that you would be open to being demoted even if you were one of the best at your job. Right?

Twitter costs dudes more trouble than it's worth. Can't believe anyone would have a twitter account.

What the **** are you talking about? He's a whiny pussy. Do you follow him? He has a weak mind. That doesn't mean I want to fight him. Thanks for pointing out the obvious tough guy, Branden Albert would beat me up. Guilty. I'd take Branden in a fight against anyone on this board. That doesn't mean he doesn't act like a bitch. Silly Willie.
