Being a proton donor and an electron acceptor are the same thing because once the acid donates or loses a proton, it can then accept an electron pair.

I think it has to do with the idea that the electrons account for one region of electron density, as in the bond strength does not matter as much as how many actual regions of electron density a molecule has.
