10 NFL Twitter recommendations under 100,000 followers

If you're in that niche market of sports fans that enjoy the NFL and happen to be on Twitter, we've comprised a quick list of 10 handles you should be following right now. And no, we're not including dudes like Adam Schefter or Chad Johnson because everyone and their grandma already follows them. On this list, we're going with 10 Twitter ninjas who have fewer than 100,000 followers that you may not be following right now, but would be worth your time.

1. Peyton's Head (@PeytonsHead): I realize not everyone loves comedic accounts, but if you love to laugh while also loving football, no Twitter presence complements a primetime game as well as this Peyton Manning parody account which has exploded into something much broader than that.

Top tweet this week:

2. Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell): Smart, insightful and funny. A nice combination of logic and wit from the Grantland writer.

Top tweet this week:

3. Evan Silva (@evansilva): No one tweets fantasy as well as Silva. The senior editor of Rotoworld and NBC Sports writer really, really, really knows what he's talking about.

Top tweet this week:

4. Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout): Miller focuses on the draft, but he goes far beyond that throughout the year. The guy's knowledge is off the charts, and he also brings some personality to the table as well. Full disclosure: We work together at Bleacher Report.

Top tweet this week:

5. Will Brinson (@willbrinson): Brinson brings it all together with a steady dose of hilarious GIFs, legit analysis and pop culture references. He's solid and another member in a growing list of talented CBS writers.

Top tweet this week:

6. Pro Football Focus (@PFF): Not only is this the top destination for X's and O's, but if you tweet them a question they'll likely get back to you with an explanation.  

Top tweet this week:

7. Sports Pickle (@sportspickle): Technically they tweet all sports, but during football Sundays and Mondays it's mainly NFL hilarity.

Top tweet this week:

8. Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier): Another smart football writer who brings it consistently with witty comments and fascinating observations.  Tanier recently moved to the new Sports on Earth project and is worth following to the startup.

Top tweet this week:

9. Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS): They don't come snarkier than this. He'll piss you off but in a good way… if you know what I mean. Feel free to challenge the CBS writer, but he'll likely call you a moron in the process.

Top tweet this week:

10. Seth Payne (@PayneNFL): Payne may be new to Twitter or he just hasn't been noticed yet, but I just started following the former defensive tackle recently and I'm very impressed. He only has 5,000 followers to this point, so you can get in on the ground floor.

I'd also be crazy not to get in a shameless plug and propose that you give yours truly a follow, too. I occasionally tweet about important side-topics such as which type of bottled water is my favorite and why bananas are immensely overrated, but I do spend quite a lot of time dishing on football. It's sort of my job.
