Payback was sweet for Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy Sunday.
Hardy was upset when television cameras caught Falcons QB Matt Ryan cursing at the Panthers sideline after Atlanta’s week 4 win, telling them to get off the Georgia Dome field. But Sunday, following Carolina’s 30-20 victory in Charlotte, Hardy returned the sentiment, walking across the field and screaming for the Falcons to get off Carolina’s turf.
That brought a response from Falcons kicker Matt Bryant, who yelled for Hardy to “Enjoy watching us in January,” alluding to the playoffs, which Atlanta (11-2) has qualified for and Carolina (4-9) won’t be a part of.
(See the video above from WSOC-TV and Channel 2 Action News. Note that offensive language has been excluded.)
Hardy did not comment again after leaving the field, exiting the locker room before reporters were allowed in.
What do you think of Hardy’s antics? How did you like Bryant’s response?
