Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Rob Ryan is making a big, passive-aggressive stink about the 31-yard kick you see here, the Bengals' game-winner over the Browns on Sunday. Alleged game-winner.
The NFL stands by the call. But Ryan isn't buying. Via the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
Ryan said after a question during his press conference today: "I thought you were talking about that missed field goal. Somebody should look at it or research it. It was disappointing.''
Later, he reiterated that it was no good, saying: "You could watch the tape, that would be great. I'm not saying anything, but man, maybe the posts were crooked. [But] I don't want to get fined. I pay enough money on a house I don't even live in in California.''
He added: "I don't want to make this a big story, but I was disappointed. Of course, I'm not an expert. That's why I'm saying maybe somebody else should look at it.''
