Falcons outside linebacker O’Brien Schofield may not have name recognition, but he’s talking very loudly the day after a huge win.
After Atlanta’s 20-13 victory Sunday ended Carolina’s bid for an undefeated season, Schofield told ESPN.com that the Panthers and Cam Newton were sore losers.
“If you handle yourself with class, you don’t have to worry about that,” Schofield said. “But you see, they didn’t handle themselves with class the first time we played [when Carolina won 38-0]. So I didn’t care about how they were feeling after this game. I was ‘dabbing’ all in their faces.
“They took a picture during the game and posted it on social media the first time we played. It was a whole team picture. And Cam was running up and down the sidelines. There wasn’t none of that today. We played a football game today. I’m not even a trash talker, but when someone disrespects you and you get payback and then they can’t handle it, that’s glorious. If they could handle it, it would be cool. I probably wouldn’t have even ‘dabbed.’ But I was ‘dabbing’ in front of everybody.”
Schofield definitely has a point. The Panthers love to rub a victory in, so they need to swallow the humble pill as well.
