Former NFL safety-turned-ESPN analyst Ryan Clark woke up Monday morning and boldly decided to choose violence.
The retired Super Bowl XLIII champion - who co-hosts “The Pivot Podcast” - tweeted Grammy-winning singer Chris Brown is “more talented” than the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.THEE Michael Jackson.
”Chris Brown is more talented than Michael Jackson… there I said it! Have a great week,” he tweeted, KNOWING how folks like to tussle online.
cb never had a performance like the 1988 grammys. never danced like mj did in the panther dance, never sang like he did in earth song or will you be there, never made an album with the sales and impact like thriller , and never wrote a song as good as stranger in moscow. https://t.co/cd840usERT

As expected, Twitter users started dragging him for his unpopular opinion, but that didn’t stop the former Pittsburgh Steelers player from backing down.
”I do not care!! You out [sic] CB and MJ in the talent Olympics Chris Brown wins,” he tweeted in response to the backlash.
To further explain his thinking, Ryan used his CB vs. MJ debate in comparison to legendary NFL quarterbacks Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.
”Guys!! Michael Jackson is an Icon. He’s the [goat emoji]… With that being said I believe skill for skill Chris Brown is more talented. Just like @TomBrady is the [goat emoji] but I believe @AaronRodgers12 is more talented.”
Ehhh...if MJ didn’t invent the moves CB is doing then he might have an argument.
It seems the debate may have been sparked by a new video of Breezy freestyling some dance moves:
