Did Demario Davis Spare Matt Ryan?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I noticed a play near the end of the game. Demario Davis went down in the pocket and got a hold of Matt Ryans leg and held it until Ryan threw an incomplete pass. Correct me if I am wrong ...

Did Demario Davis Spare Matt Ryan?

I noticed a play near the end of the game. Demario Davis went down in the pocket and got a hold of Matt Ryans leg and held it until Ryan threw an incomplete pass. Correct me if I am wrong but Davis could easily and legally have rolled while holding Ryans foot or ankle and finished the play faster, with serious injury risk to Ryanís career. Many QBs would just go down or throw faster in that situation to avoid the injury risk but Ryan delayed, accepted the risk, and still Davis did not roll. Falcons fans like to imagine the Saints are a dirty team, but we just had Ryans fate in our hands and spared him.

Davis could have easily mangled Ryan’s leg

Some things are more important than football

If I could read DeMario’s mind, he was probably thinking- would someone hurry up and hit this MF already-.

I was watching that, and was immediately waiting for the alligator death roll, but it never happened.

I thought so too. DD is a strong guy and could have easily twisted Matty's leg like a alligator if he wanted to.

That's what I was thinking. He was probably sure someone was about to hit him.

Probably didn’t want to get flagged so he just stopped.

Re: Did Demario Davis Spare Matt Ryan?

I thought DeMario was waiting on a whistle. I'm not sure what qualifies as "in the grasp" in order for the refs to blow the play dead. Does the QB have to be wrapped up around the torso? If the League is serious about protecting the QB then that play should've been blown dead. Some ******* like Ndamukong Suh would not have stopped the pursuit of bringing Ryan down where DeMario stopped.
