Top 12 Takeaways from Rashard Mendenhall's Osama Tweets

The Steelers RB has stirred up a firestorm of controversy for recent comments regarding the execution of Osama Bin Laden. As always, FTT has what you need to know...

12) Just imagine what he'd be saying if the President was white

11) Vince McMahon is studying the public reaction to these remarks intensely, and deciding which WWE employee will be echoing them next week

10) Steeler Fan might be OK with believing the President is a Secret Kenyan Muslim, but he's really not OK with anyone who thinks 9/11 Is A Joke

9) Mendenhall might want to remember that outspoken public statements from guys that fumble away the Super Bowl might not be the best career decision

8) On some level, Ben Roethlisberger is OK with all of this, since it puts his 2009-2010 offseason further back in the rear mirror

7) This probably isn't doing too much for the NFL and NFLPA's public relations problem

6) Considering that RM also supported Adrian Peterson's comment over how the NFL is "modern-day slavery", perhaps we shouldn't be letting running backs near keyboards

5) There really isn't anything in the world more annoying than a millionaire spouting homilies, especially when he's actually quoting Scripture accurately in regards to judgments

4) Mendenhall hasn't tweeted since 6pm on Monday, which is just crippling our national struggle to process the events

3) As RM follows Sarah Silverman on Twitter, maybe this is all just a comedic experiment

2) Rex Ryan just asked Santonio Holmes what he thinks about Mendenhall joining the Jets for some criminally low price

1) Once more with feeling, conviction, and absolute bedrock certainty: athletes should be seen and not heard, but Blogfrica is deeply thankful that this ain't the way the world works
