NFL Twitter’s reactions to Herschel Walker’s confession

Former NFL runner Herschel Walker is running for the United States Senate in the state of Georgia. Walker is vying for the Republican ticket, and some of his recent comments have drawn attention from the public, particularly on NFL Twitter.

MORE: Herschel Walker doesn’t deny he put a gun to his ex-wife’s head and threatened to “explode her brain.” He just said he doesn’t remember because he has a mental illness that includes multiple personalities.

Some fans feel that anyone with psychological problems should not hold public office:

@nancyljones1 @NoLieWithBTC A lot of people who used to play sports were good people, until the symptoms of CTE/TBI eventually started to manifest. He has no business in office, for this and many other reasons.

Others point to the larger issue, which is the treatment of women and domestic violence:

@NoLieWithBTC The United States of America is on the list of the top 10 most dangerous countries in the world for women.

His expected opponent will be incumbent Senator Raphael Warnock. This user believes that Warnock will be re-elected:

@NoLieWithBTC I will have to believe that Senator Warnock will be re-elected. Senator Warnock was a great orator, and a good senator. It shouldn’t be a contest. Football should not be a reason to elect someone to the government.

The NFL and football have branched out into US politics:

The former rerun’s psychological diagnosis became the target of political opponents as his senate campaign continued in Georgia:

@NoLieWithBTC Yes, but which of Herschel Walker’s personalities will prevail… and does he remember?

This user feels that government elections should have stricter requirements, such as background checks:

@NoLieWithBTC I don’t understand how for most jobs there are strict requirements that must be met: interview, background check, health check, reference check. However, for those key government positions, nothing? Something has to change!

The NFL’s Twitter sometimes sticks to the political spectrum:

Mental health and Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) are issues the NFL continues to face. This user thinks that because of that, he is not allowed to be a Senator:

@NoLieWithBTC Some of the signs and symptoms of CTE are thought to include thinking (cognitive) and emotional difficulties, physical problems, and other behavioral problems. Herschel is not a bad choice for a Senator. He should not be assigned any work that requires critical…

This user took a rather different view of his disorder and suggested that all of his personalities would vote on policies they disagree with:

@NoLieWithBTC I don’t care how many personalities Herschel Walker has because I know they will all vote for policies that I strongly disagree with.

This user says that the problem is logged in the rerun log:

Herschel Walker’s NFL Career

Herschel Walker first played in the United States Soccer League (USFL), and the Dallas Cowboys got him into the fifth round of the 1985 NFL Draft. When the USFL ended, the Cowboys signed Walker in 1986, and he initially shared backyard duties with rerun star Tony Dorsett.

The return runner would have the best year of his career in 1988 with 1,514 yards of charge, 505 yards of reception, 5 rush touchdowns and 2 touchdowns. This while playing seven positions including full-back, full-back, full-back, full-back and wide recording.


In 1989, the Cowboys (under new ownership with Jerry Jones) traded Walker for the Minnesota Vikings for 5 players and 6 future picks. Those draft picks eventually became Emmitt Smith, Russell Maryland, Kevin Smith, and Darren Woodson.

Emmitt Smith would go on to become the NFL’s all-time fastest career runner by yard, a record that still stands today. Smith was also inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Cowboy Darren Woodson’s safety is still being considered for inclusion in the Hall of Fame after playing his entire 12-year career with the Dallas Cowboys.

This commercial represents a turning point for the Cowboys franchise that became three Super Bowl victories in four years during the 1990s, establishing the Dallas Cowboys dynasty.

We’ll have to wait and see how this situation plays out as it’s unlikely to be the last we hear about.
