Henry Melton Calls Lions 'Dirty', Says C Dominic Raiola Is All Talk
The Lions have a reputation for pushing the envelope, particularly on defense with Ndamukong Suh occasionally crossing the line but Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton, named to his first Pro Bowl team on Wednesday, says the Lions do the same on the offensive side of the ball.
“Dirty. They’re dirty,” Melton said of the Lions today at Halas Hall. “They’ve always been a dirty team since I’ve been here. I don’t like them. They’re going to be looking for cheap shots and all that mess, just have to hold our composure and play the game we know.”
Asked to expand on how the Lions are dirty, Melton said the evidence is on video. A skirmish between teams during a meeting last season started when Bears nickel cornerback D.J. Moore hit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Bears took exception to a hit Suh put on Cutler during the Oct. 22 meeting at Soldier Field but no penalty or fine was assessed for the play.
“They just try to do all this extra stuff, talking little cheap shots,” Melton said. “If you look at the tape, they’ve always thrown cheap shots, we had a brawl last year. It is what it is, I’m ready.”
Melton said center Dominic Raiola is the biggest talker on the line.
“He’s old and he just talks. He’s more just cuss words, bad language,” Melton said. “Then he’ll throw some cheap shots in there and then he’ll say some bad words.”
