A Los Angeles Rams star player has a message for the New Orleans Saints' players still complaining about the NFC Championship Game.

Rams' defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman, who committed the blatant pass interference penalty that went uncalled, isn't holding back in his message to the Saints.

The Rams' standout says his team outplayed the Saints, regardless of the officiating controversy.

"We outplayed them. We out-schemed them. And we outcoached them. ... The Saints need to hold themselves accountable. They did not play championship football. Their numbers were low. Michael Thomas had 36 yards receiving. They had 50 yards rushing. They didn't capitalize on the turnovers we made early. We capitalized on the breaks we got at the end," he told Bleacher Report.

Saints' tight end Benjamin Watson was one of the most-outspoken players in the wake of the officiating controversy.

The veteran tight end posted a strong message on Twitter, calling out Roger Goodell.

Robey-Coleman had a message for Watson, too.

"Ben Watson, you didn't even play! Be quiet. I respect you as a 14-year veteran. I respect you as a league rep. But, no, in this case. No, bro. No, bro," he said.

The Rams, meanwhile, are set to take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 6:30 p.m. E.T. on CBS.
