Derek Anderson gets in Twitter argument at 2 a.m.

Oft-mocked Cardinals quarterback Derek Anderson couldn’t sleep last night and turned to Twitter to amuse himself.

He must have been bored, as he decided to get into a full-blown argument with Cleveland Browns fan Bob Wetsel.

When Anderson sent out a whimsical-sounding tweet wondering why he does certain things, Wetsel was giving him some flak when he asked why Anderson throws into triple coverage.

Cue the beginning of a two hour argument over who knows football better: the fans or the players.

Anderson said triple coverage is impossible as it leaves one man open, but later tweeted that he meant certain zones allow for three defensive backs to be in the same vicinity as a receiver.

Eventually the conversation deteriorated into Anderson basically labeling Wetsel an armchair quarterback.

Despite spending some time on the bench last season, Anderson still thinks he has what it takes to play in the NFL.

I’m just saying u don’t know what u think u know. So don’t be a hater.. I play in the NFL regardless if u think I can play or not I can f*****g play the game. Shity at times yes.. But sure as shit dont try and be shity

Maybe if Anderson spent those two hours working on his accuracy he wouldn’t have to prove himself to a random fan.
