Scott Shanle: Atlanta Falcons Were Classless Before Game


The Atlanta Falcons struggles against the New Orleans Saints continued on Sunday when Atlanta dropped their first game of the season thanks to New Orleans.

While the Falcons – Saints haven’t provided much of a heated rivalry lately, it seems like it will be beginning now.

Prior to the game on Sunday, New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Shanle says the Falcons players were “classless” with their antics, according to Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports.

“They were talking [expletive] to our guy Curtis Lofton,” Shanle told Silver.  “I couldn’t even understand them. They were just walking all over our drills trying to mess with him. [Linebacker Jonathan] Vilma went and told their coach it was classless and they didn’t even say anything.  It set the tone for the day.  It was classless and they got what they deserved.”

Luckily for us, the two teams will be meeting again later this month in primetime on Thursday Night Football.
