Los Angeles Rams DB Nickell Robey-Coleman, the player at the center of the no-call in the NFC Championship, isn’t mincing his words when it comes to the against the Saints.  In an interview with Bleacher Report, Robey-Coleman had some strong words.

“We outplayed them. We out-schemed them. And we outcoached them…The Saints need to hold themselves accountable. They did not play championship football.”

And he didn’t stop there.  Robey-Coleman called out Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas.

“Michael Thomas had 36 yards receiving.”

The Saints rushing game…

“They had 50 yards rushing.”

Saints tight end Ben Watson, who issued a statement calling on NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to make a statement, was also the target of some criticism.

“Ben Watson, you didn't even play! Be quiet. I respect you as a 14-year veteran. I respect you as a league rep. But, no, in this case. No, bro. No, bro.”

Robey-Coleman wasn’t done yet, and he ripped the NFL for fining him for his hit on wide receiver Tommylee Lewis.

“"It's like, it's like...How could you? Come on. Five days later? I can understand next day."

For Saints fans hoping for revenge, New Orleans will play the Rams next season; and Robey-Coleman is under contract through 2020.
