Many people were happy that Patricia was finally fired. One particular person on Twitter was not.
Twitter user @EddyPLionsFan seems to be a die-hard Patricia fan, which is something that doesn’t even make sense, and made people look more into the account.
The Big Lead dove more into it:
“Looking at Eddy P’s account, the person behind it makes a compelling case. He did not tweet once during during any of the games which Patrica coached this season, which is odd for such a passionate fan. The tweets were all on September 3rd and 4th and then tonight, two days after Patricia was let go.
Every tweet is a reply to another tweet about the Detroit Lions, with most of them specifically about Patricia.
Twenty-one of Eddy P’s 30 tweets feature the words “Coach Patricia.”
Matt Patricia’s middle name is Edward.
Eddy P’s bio says he is a “dad of 3.” Matt Patricia has three children.
His bio says “tech nerd.” Patricia graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
If he really a big Lions fan, surely he would have found time to tweet about the Lions during the Lions’ season. Instead, he waited until after Patricia got fired to jump back online and tweet things that sound an awful lot like first hand accounts.”
A flurry of posts on Monday night and early Tuesday morning came in defense of Patricia, and cast blame with others, including former GM Bob Quinn, as well as QB Matthew Stafford and former cornerback Darius Slay.
