The Chicago Bears showed little fight on the football field all season. Apparently, some of the players were saving their energy to engage in a Twitter brawl.

Offensive lineman Kyle Long and tight end Martellus Bennett came to virtual blows on Sunday, according to David Just of the Chicago Sun-Times. The entire thing began after Bennett decided to unfollow Long on Twitter, leading Long to tweet about Bennett’s unfollowing of his account:

On Tuesday, Bennett logged back onto Twitter and had some choice words for his teammate:

What a complete and utter circus in the Windy City. The Bears stink, and both of these guys come off as children. Can you imagine something like this going on between guys on the New England Patriots or Green Bay Packers? No, because they are too busy winning.

If you watched the Bears at all the second half of the 2014 season, it became painfully obvious the team had little use for each other. This fun little Twitter spat is likely a small window into the chaos of that locker room.
