But there was no penalty called on the play and a league source said Tuesday that nothing on video replay indicated any type of violation.
We’re excited about it. I don’t think anybody’s reveling in anybody being injured or anything like that.
– Jim Schwartz on Lions, after interception in fourth quarter
The Colts’ Mike McGlynn drew attention to the play when he called out Suh in comments made to the Indianapolis Star.
“Totally ignorant on their part, just childish stuff,” McGlynn told the newspaper. “We’re all battling out there; I don’t know if the hit was legal or not, but clearly he was hurt, and they’re out there dancing and pointing at him and laughing. Just blatant disrespect. They’re good players, but there’s no room for that. It’s disgusting, really.”
But Lions coach Jim Schwartz, on Monday, said there’s nothing on the coaches’ film to support McGlynn’s accusations and that his players were simply excited about the interception and making blocks to support a return.
“What shows on the coaches’ film is we make an interception with six minutes to go and we’re up two scores and looks like it’s a really great chance to be able to win that game. Guys were looking to make blocks, guys made blocks,” Schwartz said. “It’s off after that. There were no penalties on that play. Our guys were rightfully excited. We had a very good pass rush on that. The quarterback, like we had talked about all week, had to elevate his throw.
“We’re excited about it. I don’t think anybody’s reveling in anybody being injured or anything like that.”
