Eli Apple Talked Trash, his mom talked some trash, and then she gracefully bowed out when it was all said and done.
Eli Apple has the type of mouth that made people root against a likable team in the Bengals just because they wanted the defensive back to fail.
From the second the AFC Championship ended “Eli Apple” was trending. His mother wanted no part of it, so she deactivated her account.
Apple has drawn the ire of many across the NFL world for his trash talk, most notably when he was ripped for seemingly mocking Damar Hamlin’s widely used emoji when he was recovering in the hospital after a frightening scene on the field during Monday Night Football.
He later apologized while stating his tweet was in no way meant to disrespect Hamlin. Even still, he had a field day mocking the Buffalo Bills and Stefon Diggs when his team eliminated them last week.
Apple laid a big old fat egg on Sunday. He failed to secure what could have been a potentially game-changing interception while also committing a holding penalty late in the game that negated a sack for B.J. Hill.
The drive ended in a punt, but when you look back on it, the time wasted could’ve been used for the Bengals late in the game after the Chiefs kicked a game-winning field goal and left few seconds on the clock.
