There were a lot of takes on yesterday's Calvin Ridley news, but we're not sure anyone had a worse one than FS1's Emmanuel Acho.

In a since-deleted tweet, Acho posted a 30-second clip of Ridley game footage from last season and implied that the wide receiver, who was suspended by the NFL for the 2022 season for gambling on games, actually may have been shaving points.

"I don't think Calvin Ridley was throwing games while on the field at all, but this video is VERY damning," Acho captioned his tweet.

The video he posted showed Ridley eluding tackles and zig-zagging in the open field. There were some people who made jokes about the video indicating Ridley was shaving points, but there's a difference between random Twitter users saying that and a major analyst at a premier network doing the same.

Needless to say, Acho has been rightfully getting crushed for his tweet, which he deleted either overnight or early this morning.

This isn't the first time Acho has been pilloried for his takes on Twitter. Heck, it wasn't even the only time it happened yesterday--check out his bizarre Lamar Jackson video.

Let's just say Monday wasn't a great day for the former Texas and NFL linebacker.
