Overheard On Twitter: Sam Ficken Subtweeting The Steelers

New Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Josh Scobee — who was acquired via trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars a week ago — is having a rough night. The veteran kicker missed two first-half field goals from distances an NFL kicker should connect from, and Penn State Twitter kindly presented the Steelers with a solution to its kicking woes: sign Sam Ficken.

Even Ficken himself joined in on the fun, sending the subtweet to end all subtweets over to the Steelers, letting the team know what it’s missing out on.

Penn State Twitter, as usual, posted some phenomenal tweets in support of everyone’s favorite kicker — who somehow still remains a free agent. Take a look at some of the best Ficken-to-Pittsburgh tweets of the night:

So, Pittsburgh, take the hint. Forget the fact that you sent a sixth-round pick to Jacksonville for Scobee. Ficken is the answer.
