One team is about to take home the Lombardi trophy on Sunday, but ahead of the Super Bowl the players who didn’t make it (and some whose teams have) are getting knocked down a peg.

Jimmy Kimmel’s recurring Mean Tweets segments has come out for the NFL as Russell Wilson, Rob Gronkowski, Tony Romo, Von Miller, and numerous others face off against some of the terrible things people have said about them on Twitter.

No flags on that play.
