On Thursday, Raiders’ Sio Moore and Khalil Mack sacked Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith and celebrated, and celebrated, and celebrated.
After the game, veteran Justin Tuck, who saved the day by calling a timeout before the Chiefs snapped the ball, got into a pretty hilarious exchange with Moore, Mack, and Charles Woodson.
Per the Mercury News:
Moore goes over to Tuck, who is sitting in his chair …
Moore: “Don’t you ever scream at me like that again.”
Tuck: “I wanted to fight you. No, I did. I wanted to fight you. You know how your brother starts a fight and comes and gets you and its six guys waiting to fight? And you don’t want to fight them, you just want to fight the brother that got you in this mess? That’s how I was. I wanted to fight you, not them.”
(I then went over to Khalil Mack to get his take on Tuck screaming at him)
Mack: “There was a lot of that going on. I’m still learning. …We got the win. Nobody cares about that play anymore.”
On the moment of bliss he and Moore was clearly caught up in …
Mack: ”It was surreal, man. We knew we wanted to get there. It just so happened we did. The rest is a win.”
On whether he knew the timeout had been called.
Mack: ”(Smiling). We gone say we did. We gone say we did. That’s what Sio said? Sio said we knew? … Yeah, we knew the timeout was called.”
Moments later, out of nowhere, comes Charles Woodson. He walks towards Moore.
Woodson: “Man, what heeeeell was y’all doing?!?”
Moore’s head drops as he smiles.
Woodson: “What the hell was y’all doing?”
Tuck: “Did you see me? I (wanted) to punch them right in the face.”
Moore: We was doing the handshake.
Woodson: FOR TEN MINUTES????
Moore: For seven minutes, yes.
Moore: “Hey. I turned around and he (pointing to Tuck) was yelling at me. And (Alex Smith) was like this (Moore squats like he’s under center).
Woodson: “Because they was about to go!”
Tuck: “I called timeout twice.”
Moore: “You know how they say act like you’ve been there before? I haven’t!” (eruption of laughter)
Woodson: ”You better be glad we won or we would’ve been fighting.”
Tuck: ”I’ve been in this league for 10 years. C-Wood been in this league 18 years. We’ve never seen anything like that. Ever. You know how you say ‘I’ve seen it all’? I’ll never say that again.”
