Recent former Buffalo Bills Sammy Watkins, Jerome Felton, and Anthony "Boobie" Dixon took to Twitter Sunday during the implosion that was Nathan Peterman’s first-career start against the Los Angeles Chargers to show their support for their former teammate Tyrod Taylor who had been benched. Other Bills alumni joined in the fray, too.

Watkins, who played with the Bills from 2014-16, Felton (2015-16) and Anthony "Boobie" Dixon (2015) all in one form or another joined the masses on Twitter to reprimand the Bills.

Watkins wasn’t direct with his thoughts on the matter, choosing to retweet comments from Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Hall of Famer Cris Carter as opposed to tweeting his own, but his message was still effective nonetheless:

Felton and Dixon, however, pulled no punches. Boobie, particularly, had a lot to say to say about the Bills game overall, which you can read on his timeline here.

Older Bills alumni also took to Twitter to lambaste the team. While Cornelius Bennett (1987-1995) didn’t tweet directly, he retweeted a note from Kent Hull’s son, Drew, saying “Bye Felicia” to Peterman. The elder Hull played for Buffalo from 1986 to 1996.

Others were more direct. Takeo Spikes (2003-2006), Marcellus Wiley (1997-2000), and Shawne Merriman (2010-2012) all took to social media:

We’ll have to wait to see what quarterback head coach Sean McDermott rolls with this upcoming week on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs, but either way, expect more Twitter goodness courtesy of former Bills.
