RHEC Posted January 3, 2012 Share Posted January 3, 2012 (edited) Let's just say Giants defensive end Justin Tuck is well aware of the unflattering reputation that follows the Falcons' offensive line.NFC Wild Card Game on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.Tuck made that very clear Monday by firing the first shot as New York and Atlanta get set to play in anaccording to the New York Daily News. "But it is what it is. We got to make sure we do our job, and if we are doing our job well, then they will be upset, and they will be trying to do things to get us off our game, and we’ve got to take that as a compliment.”“Most people, you would call them dirt bags," Tuck said, On a few occasions this season, opponents have called out Atlanta's linemen for using cheap -- and what some have termed dangerous -- tactics during games.B.J. Raji said Falcons O-linemen flopped in an effort to induce penalties during their Week 5 game.» Packers defensive tackle Cliff Avrilcalled out Atlanta for "cutting" guys "20, 30 yards down the field."» Two weeks later, after drama unfolded between the Lions and Falcons, defensive linemen William Hayes described, in detail, his experience against the Falcons' O-line in Week 11.» And Titans defensive end All of which hasn't gone unnoticed by Tuck, who will make sure his teammates keep these bits of information stored in the back of their minds Sunday. Publicly calling the Falcons "dirt bags," though? Guess there's nothing like a little name-calling to fire up Wild Card Weekend.If he wants to see dirt bags, maybe one of our guys can take out his knee, then we will be dirt bags. Sounds like to me that these big babies don't like real football. Edited January 3, 2012 by Skar Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
