Joe Staley played Offensive Tackle for the 49ers for 13 seasons after being their 1st round pick (28th overall) in 2007 out of Central Michigan. He was a stalwart on the left side of their line and blocked for guys like Alex Smith, Colin Kaepernick, Jimmy G and others. He made 2nd Team All-Pro in three consecutive seasons (2011-2013) and made the Pro Bowl six times (as recently as 2017). Staley was also named to the NFL All-Decade Team for 2010s. He appeared in two Super Bowls with the 49ers and he also signed three contracts in his career and made over $85 million dollars. To summarize, Staley was that a legitimate dude for over a decade in the NFL.

Kayvon Thibodeaux, the Giants rookie EDGE rusher, was the 5th pick in this past year's Draft and had a nice rookie season for the most part. He missed the first few games due to an injury he suffered in the pre-season, but he certainly came on later in the year.

Well Kayvon decided to pop off a bit on Twitter yesterday, but that wasn't necessarily the problem. The problem was he didn't know who he was dealing with.

During the Eagles dismantling of the 49ers, the rookie tweeted this:

The Giants are coming off a 38-7 loss at the hands of the Eagles the week prior, and while that tweet could be seen as self deprecating and maybe even tongue in cheek, the Niner Gang had no interest in joking around yesterday. Staley went over the top with this.

Thibodeaux was on the ropes after that typed pancake from Staley.

But Staley wasn't finished.

In hilarious fashion, former Giants Kicker Lawrence Tynes decided to jump in the foray. 

Staley basically told Tynes to know his role like he was the Cincinnati Mayor.

So while it was ugly for the 49ers yesterday between the white lines yesterday, on the internet streets, they won the day.
