The Saints are annoyed.
Their coach has been suspended, everyone calling them out on bounties and they think Roger Goodell isn’t giving them a fair shake.
So, if you make comments like 49ers Donte Whitner did, expect these type of responses courtesy of Pro Football Zone.
49ers safety Donte Whitner recently criticized the New Orleans Saints by claiming they needed a bounty system in order to be motivated to play hard.
“If you have the right type of guys in that (defensive) room, you don’t have to set bounties or pay money for guys to play physical and play hard,” said Whitner.
Saints linebacker Scott Shanle took the time to respond to Whitner.
“Guy needs to shut his mouth and mind his own business,” Shanle wrote on Twitter. Don’t remember them winning the Super Bowl. U still ringless. We got one and working on two now. Try to keep up.”
Then Shanle took a shot at the State of California for good measure.
Alright 49ers fans its been fun but I got 2 get back 2 work. That's something we do in Louisiana so our state isn't bankrupt. Im outta here
