Video: DE tells Falcons to get off Carolina’s field

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?

@Roger you’re an idiot Cam is better than Matt no doubt the only reason Matt is good is his receivers there is nothing special about him and Steve Smith is an animal he deserves to showboat b/c he makes awesome plays and lets not forget our first meeting Hardy and Johnson sacked Matt 8 times! Please dont say things you dont comprehend

I don’t like that Matty did it but to compare the level of class between HOW they did the classless acts is absurd. One the sideline by yourself VS. walking through players is NOT the same.

Hardy’s version is the kinda stuff that can get your chin LaGarrett BLOUNTED!!

Are you kidding me?! Hardy earned and deserved to say whatever he wanted! He and the Panthers played with heart and outplayed each and every Falcon on each and every play. Falcons were out-coached and out-played. And it was no fluke – the Panthers ARE better than the Falcons; fortunately for Atlanta, we’ve had an easy schedule and gotten some lucky breaks this season. Imagine if Cam had Jones and Roddy – Panthers would be Super Bowl-bound!

GET WHAT YOU GIVE! He deserved to say what he wanted. Hopefully that woke up a ANGRY NEST OF BIRDS! If you want to shut up the guy you do it by playing. Now lets see what we got on Sunday!

Kyle: They say people who use profanity are ignorant. I guess you qualify. One loss is not the whole season. Falcons are 11-2 and will play in Jan.

No problem with it at all, during a football game there is smack talk thoughout, no problem with Matt saying it, no problem in the retaliation.

However, does SCAM have to celebrate everytime he gets a first down? I mean really? Act like you have been there before. That’s why no one likes this dude. But I guess when you have only won 4 games, you gotta celebrate the small victories. Either way, enjoy your win and the cellar.

Greg Hardy has no class. He is no even a good player. Even if Matt Ryan said what he said, he’s supposed to be professional. Be the better man any tell te media how you won and embarrassed the Falcons. If that is the only way he can motivate himself for a game, then he and the Panthers will win only one game a year.

What can you say? When you’re a 4-win team & you’re already planning your January vacation, splitting the season series with the division champs is your equivalent of winning the Super Bowl. I think it’s hilarious. Can you say “inferiority complex”?

Panthers played THE EXACT SAME teams the Falcons played except for Seahawks+Bears. We played Arizona and Detroit. If you give them those 2 wins that puts them at 6. Still 5 games back.

They were better than us for one half Sunday. Over the course of the season….. #NOTSOMUCH

No, Carolina was better than Atlanta for all but 2 minutes in the first game and all yesterday. Ya Carolina is pretty bad this season and we will be watching Atlanta’s one game in January, but we will all be watching other teams play on February 3, 2013.
Now, back to the subject at hand. Matt Ryan should have known better than telling the cats to get off the field…it didn’t work when Michael Vick told the dogs to get off the field (and in the lake), and it didn’t work out so well for Matt Ryan. Matt Ryan isn’t going to jail or anything but he did get his ass kicked yesterday…they did something else to Mike Vick’s ass. And yes a guy with an acl thats been torn 3 times intercepted “Matty Ice’s” pass to clinch the game. Mike Vick knows about all things torn and clinching too.

The Falcons have one bad game and the fans are ready to run and hide. Well, this Falcon team is different and Eli Manning will be on the receiving end next week. Keep dreaming Eli, you’ve been beaten 5 times this season. This year the Falcons move forward.

Hey cool1, is Greg Hardy going to be Mike Vick broke, like when he filed for bankruptcy and left Atlanta, or is he going to be Evan Holyfield broke, when the bank took his Atlanta manshion?…not the right city to give financial advice Cool1, especially to a 24 year old who has been in the league for only 3 years and has the majority of his career left….#See Charlotte-home of bank of america

Glad to see the Falcons loose and be treated the way they treat others…As a Saints fan I was disgusted the way our team and fans were treated prior to the game at the GA Dome. Anyone who has EVER been to NOLA for a game knows while we are passionate about our Saints we will still feed you and hand you a beer to watch the game with us. Win or loose no one throws eggs or starts fights with fans or players…

For all you new comers, in 1966 I attended the first falcon game, I have seen it all in the last 45 years, yea, we wil not win with Matt, he is afraid of getting hit, many holes were open, but he insisted on standing in the pocket, well go figure, watch Cam, and the Kid from SF, RG3, there is a new breed of QB’s coming into the NFL, happy feets will not win any play off games, Talk to you in Jan 2013, after One and Done, 45 years, trust me.

Hey Panthers, Sham Newton does not have potential. He is not well rounded and will never be an elite quarterback. He is overrated, ignorant, and will never lead your sorry excuse for a football team to a winning record. I understand your frustration though after 4 consecutive losing seasons. What I don’t understand is your optimism, you have had a top 5 pick for 4 straight years and have managed to field the same sorry team year after year, only adding an overrated retard that thinks losing equates to superman.

[...] Hardy felt so good about the win that after the game, he went to every Falcons player that would listen and told them to “get the f*ck off our field.” [...]

He’s mad.. I would be to if I was a panthers player or fan. The falcons went out and played at 50%. I dont no why.. my only guess is they new that carolina meant nothing but another W and they didnt want to hurt anyone coming into the NY game. Hopefully thats what it was. Cam newton is a good qb, however, its really hard for me to like someone that likes himself as much he does.
