Sunday’s New York Times featured a lengthy profile of Jets linebacker Bart Scott, detailing the way he has turned trash talk into an art form.
Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli was not impressed.
Mughelli, who played with Scott when they were both on the Ravens and played against him when the Falcons beat the Jets on Sunday, told the
New York Daily News that he drilled Scott with a block that sent him to the turf — and even then Scott wouldn’t stop talking.
“It is impossible to shut the man up,” Mughelli said. “I don’t want to call him out, but even when I pancaked him, he was still talking trash. How are you talking trash when you’re on your back?”
Mughelli said Scott was “threatening our linemen,” but in the end he didn’t think Scott played a particularly effective game to back up his smack talk.
“I don’t think he was going to do anything,” Mughelli said. “I just said, ‘Show me.’ And I didn’t see that much.”
