NEW YORK (WFAN) – Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon, who famously tweeted “talk is cheap” to Jets coach Rex Ryan earlier this year, is at it again.

Hanlon’s pro-Giants twitter tour took a not-so-social turn on Wednesday after former New York wide receiver Steve Smith signed with the rival Eagles.

His night started off with a benign tweet: “The condensed offseason has led to hysteria in many quarters – good and bad. I find the hysteria hysterical.”

And then things got interesting.

One fan wrote to the Giants spokesman: “All teams need to rebuild at one point, I’m not going to panic until the season begins.” To that, Hanlon responded, “Re-build my a–! I got your re-build.”

Hanlon went on a tear, responding to fan after fan. It was the critics, however, that drew most of the eye-popping responses from Hanlon.

“This is great,” he tweeted. “We usually get to play two regular season games before people tell us we aren’t worth a sh–.”

Maybe Hanlon is just taking his lead from Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, who exclaimed that critics can “can line up and kiss my a–” at the conclusion of last year’s 10-6 season.

Check out a few more choice cuts from the Giants’ PR man:

Fan: “Can you say definitively the Giants are better than last year?”

Hanlon: “Can you say we’re worse, knucklehead?”

Fan: “On paper they ARE worse. no matter who signs your checks.”

Hanlon: “We don’t play on paper. You know what you can do w/ that paper? “

Fan: “Giants off-season can be summed up w/ one word: Debacle.”

Hanlon: “Thanks Lombardi. Cause I know you know.”

Fan: “Because the giants are making barely any noise while the eagles are ‘the dream team.’

Hanlon: “A lot noisemakers end up in the ditch.”

Fan: “Your job is to be a company man but how can Giants fans be excited when they did nothing.”

Hanlon: “You like winning? Sit tight.”

“I’m done. Good night,” Hanlon wrote before signing off. “It’s a long season.”

Were Hanlon’s responses out of line or just plain funny? Sound off in the comments below…

That's their team spokesman responding like that?

I personally love the candidness, but a tight-laced organization like the Giants probably aren't going to like it too much.

And yes, he's delusional. That team is in a very bad position because of the ridiculous contract that Eli has. I said it when it happened, that Super Bowl Championship was going to set the Giants back 10 years. They went from talks about not even resigning Eli to giving him one of the most lucrative contracts in the league. And all because Plax made him look good for a year or 2.

When you have a QB like Brady or Peyton, you can get by because those guys make up for it. But when you're paying a guy like Eli that money, you're in trouble.

Yeah, nothing like winning a championship to screw up your football team. :confused0082:

If Sanchez has a year in '11 anything like what Eli had the last two years, we're going 15-1 and steamrolling our way to a Super Bowl.

If Eli were nearly as bad as some people make him out to be he'd be Chad Henne.

the problem is he's an above average QB being paid like an elite one.

Who here wouldn't love this guy as the Jets spokesman?

Any guy that can effectively steer the Plaxico Burress shooting and the full-stadium PSL pricing stories in such a way as to make the Giants look like PR savants is a genius. Consider how the Jets handled the David Clowney "rogue hacker" and their own PSL deal (taxi medallions, anyone?) and you can see what Hanlon can do for an organization.

If this were a Jets employee that said this we'd be getting ripped a new a$$hole for it. But the talking heads on ESPN are all fellating this guy for having balls to speak to fans in such a manner. ****in double standards
