“The hit was fine. What ticked me off was the way they acted afterwards. I hope our defense never acts like that when they injure an opposing quarterback because, you know, you’ve got to show some class in that situation. There’s a few guys over there that obviously didn’t.” – Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood, as quoted by the Buffalo News, in response to the Cleveland Browns’ reactions following Tashaun Gipson’s hit that knocked Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel out of Thursday’s game. Wood also said shared that Browns safety T.J. Ward had warned up-and-coming Bills linebacker Kiko Alonso, “I told you to warn him that we were going to get him [Manuel].” Ward and Alonso were teammates on the Oregon Ducks defense from 2008-2010. Overall, those are pretty strong words following Cleveland’s dramatic 37-24 victory. We’ll see if the buzz continues about this very back-and-forth game.
