    "I had respect for Suh before the game," Falcons center Todd McClure(notes) said after the game. "But when Matt was on the ground, the things he was saying and the trash he was talking was definitely uncalled for. There are certain things you don't do. [He said], 'Get the cart' and several other things that I can't repeat."

    Receiver Roddy White(notes) agreed. "I lost a whole lot of respect for 90 [Suh] today, and also 92 [Cliff Avril(notes)], 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."

    Because not only just a player, but their leader (QB) was disrespected while being injured and thats poor sportsmanship.

    Think how the Cowboys players and us as fans felt when Michael Irvin sustained his career ending neck injury in 1999.

    The E Gals fans where cheering Irvin was hurt and directing insults to him as he was being carted off on the stretcher.

    That really pissed me off. Thats why I understand how these Falcon players felt today.

    That is classless & I completely agree that they are merely a mirror image of their HC.

    Doesn't surprise me that Detroit is taking after HC Jim Schwartz, that team is undisciplined as well (stupid penalties). Look how Tennessee has played for years under his watch. Suh has already been under scrutiny for his QB takedowns so it just adds to this mess.

    Color me unimpressed with the Lions. They are not the 2009 Saints, and I have a feeling that they won't make the playoffs this season. They have been acting like children since starting 5-0.

    The Bears are getting stronger in that division, the Packers aren't looking back, and the Lions are sliding.

    Karma perhaps in Stafford getting hurt yet again and walking in a Boot?

    The Lions definitely want to be known as thugs. They are trying to change their loser mentality. Unfortunately they are going about it the wrong way.

    I can't stand Suh already. I am sure he is a player I am going to hate for his entire career. He is a dirty player.

    A lot of folks give Suh heat and deservedly so, but I've watched a few Lions games this year and that guy Cliff Avril is an idiot. He's always poppin' off and talking trash.

    If Suh was actually saying stuff like that then I'm very ashamed. I like the guy, always have...being that I'm a Husker fan. But if he's acting foolish like that about someone being injuried that is just disgusting.

    There's no place for dirty players in the league. No way to defend them. I hate when a guy acts like he's so nice and respectable, then the truth comes out. I don't think the Falcons players are lying about it.
