Shortly after the Giants were easily beaten by the 49ers on Thursday night, an old post from Kayvon Thibodeaux was dug out to troll Big Blue and the former fifth overall pick.
Back in January, Thibodeaux tweeted, “Way this game look we might be better than the 49ers,” with a few laughing emojis, in response to San Francisco getting blown out by the Eagles in the NFC title game, a week after Big Blue was rocked by Philadelphia in the divisional round.
The Eagles beat the 49ers 31-7 after trouncing the Giants 38-7 in their run to the Super Bowl.
Many disagreed with Thibodeaux’s take at the time, and plenty of fans flocked back to the post on Thursday night after the Niners finished off a 30-12 victory.
Thibodeaux and the Giants are now 1-2 on the year after taking on a potent San Francisco team without their star rusher in Saquon Barkley, and without their top offensive lineman in Andrew Thomas, both out with injuries.
