Falcons Vs. Giants: Mike Smith Responds To Justin Tuck Comments In Mike Smithly Fashion

New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck, who appears in Subway commercials despite being not famous, recently called the Atlanta Falcons offensive line a bunch of mean names. If you expected Falcons coach Mike Smith to retort by saying absolutely nothing at all to the public, you were right:

Jeff Schultz@JeffSchultzAJC Spoke to Mike Smith. Asked about Justin Tuck comment that #Falcons OLs were "dirtbags." Response: "Justin Tuck is a really good FB player."

Tuck isn't the first opposing defender to accuse the Falcons line of funny business. Earlier in the year, Ndamukong Suh took a break from stomping on people to cry foul, and Packers big man B.J. Raji has also taken issue.

Suh also appears in commercials, and I'm pretty sure every Green Bay player gets his own car dealership in Wisconsin, so maybe it's only players with commercials who don't like the Falcons. Seems like a solid theory.
