After the game, Atlanta players were furious, as they claimed Suh and other Lions players taunted Ryan as he was on the ground.
Now, to be clear, Ryan himself said he didn't hear any of this. Not a word of it. But he might not have heard it because he was in such pain.
Here's a part of the play though a chunk of the aftermath is cut off by the replay.
Receiver Roddy White told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution: “I lost a whole lot of respect for 90 [Suh] today, and also 92 [Cliff Avril], the [bleep] they were doing when Matt got hurt. That was unacceptable. … Like 92 was kicking [Ryan’s] feet, saying, ‘Get him off the field.’ We don’t do stuff like that. We don’t rally over guys when they get hurt. It was just inappropriate behavior. I mean, ‘Get the cart’? Are you serious? Come on. When you compete, you never want to see a guy get hurt.”
Again, Ryan said he didn't hear anything, but I find it difficult to believe the Falcons are making this up.
Tension was already bad before the game. The two teams got into a near tussle before the game that had to be broken up by game officials.
