The Atlanta Falcons are currently trailing the division rival New Orleans Saints on Thursday Night Football, but they had an opportunity to retake the lead after getting deep in the redzone. Unfortunately for the Falcons and their fans, Ryan slid instead of making an extra effort for the endzone and they had to settle for a field goal.
The fans showered Ryan with boos for the slide, but there was another man who took to Twitter to voice his thoughts on Ryan sliding.
It was none other than Samuel L. Jackson, who is decked out in Falcons gear for the game, who sounded off:
I MUST call Bullshit on da slide!#scaredy cat!!
