Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio had a very simple response for ESPN when they criticized him on Twitter.

Del Rio had the Raiders go for two points and win the game instead of attempting a kick to force overtime. The conversion was good and the Raiders won. (RELATED: NFL Commish Says He Supports Kaepernick, Might Punish Players Who Honor 9/11)

ESPN didn’t seem too impressed with Del Rio’s gutsy play call, but Del Rio reminded them there’s a reason the analysts at ESPN don’t coach in the NFL. (SLIDESHOW: Kick Off The NFL Season With The Hottest Cheerleaders In The Game)

Most coaches wouldn’t even bother listening to what ESPN has to say, but Oakland has been NFL trash for a very long time. They’re finally good and ESPN still wants to trash them. Del Rio had to send a message and he did just that.
