The Los Angeles Rams defensive back who wasn't called for his pass interference on Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis in Sunday's NFC Championship Game appeared to gloat about it in a video posted to his Facebook page.

Nickell Robey-Coleman acknowledged after the game Sunday that he knew his hit on Lewis was illegal. In the Facebook post, he makes it more evident that violating the rules was his intention from the get-go.

"Obviously, I smacked his a**," Robey-Coleman said. "I done put that boy on a m***********' Wafflehouse frying pan!" 

Had the officials flagged Robey-Coleman for either the pass interference or the helmet-to-helmet contact, it would have given the Saints an automatic first down, allowing them time to drain the clock before attempting a walk-off field goal from close range.
