    no, its to gain an advantage fairly.

    its been the way of football forever. **** back to peewee football we use to get stickers on our helmets for huge hits.

    You think everytime a defender has a shot on the QB hes not trying to knock him out of the game?

    I bet you didn't have this position when LT was playing

    And the players are on board as well.</p>[/quote]Agreed to a degree. I'll use Peyton as an example. I don't know if his neck was result of any such hit, but the loss of a premiere QB like him devastated the Colt team and hurt the NFL from a spectator standpoint for fans of the Colts.[/quote]

    yea but that could happen to anybody at any time

    Take the aggressiveness out of defense and you'll see the NFL suffer worse than anywhere else. They have already restricted these guys as much as they possibly could without making it touch football.

    I'm with matt on this one, trying to hit someone (legally) hard enough to knock them out of the game is acceptable in my opinion and if coaches want to give rewards for that as motivation I'm all for it....this is just Goodell trying to further wussifying this game.

    What do you guys think about this? Should the giants bring in another bruiser or pick up a fast back in the draft. Im on the fence, I love when big backs roll over defenders and set the tone. But then again as small as bradshaw is, he can physically outmatch dbs and does so frequently. I think the giants can be very effective with bradshaw and another fast back.

    Tolbert would be a GREAT addition because not only is he a physical back, but he's great at catching the ball out of the backfield.</P>

    too much money, i doubt we'd go for him. You say it all the time, dime a dozen position

    Probably right. But in a perfect world, he's exactly what we need.</P>

    But I mean if he cost a 4 year 12 mil deal - i would be on the fence about it

    He's not a #1 back, but he would be a very nice compliment to our attack. I see 4 years with a $4 or $5 MM guarantee for him on the open market.</P>

    its part of the pussification of football..

    For instance, if we're talking baout somebody getting paid for an injury like Tom Brady had that one year -i would be against that...

    If there was a bounty for the hit Boley put on Romo to break his collarbone - then ****in a.

    Like Nicks got LACED UP against the Saints this year... legally. If that guy got a bounty for that, then good for him.

    Hittiing someone hard who comes accross the middle to make him think twice next time...fine with me.</p>

    uhg, im so disappointed in you on this topic.

    Players can get injured on any play. If you don't look to demolish your opponent on any chance you can, your going to ruin the game.

    LoL - THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE. You have somebody coming across the middle, you look to put all you can in to hit him! Its the same thing!

    Your stance is what represents all that is wrong wtih this country. The pussification of america, next your going to say everybody should get a lombardi trophy just for participating.

    bull****

    big hits helped us vs the Pats in the superbowl... a couple of dropped balls could possibly of been because they knew footsteps were coming. The Hernandez drop stands out

    Getting hits on Brady gives him happy feet

    I dunno... he would be great. Gives us a pounding back, good goaline, good blocker, and actually is a GREAT receiving back. I just can't see us giving a contract out like that right now...

    I think we are going to be in hell for the next few years cap wise... we have to extend cruz and nicks and giving a contract like that out to a 2nd RB just shouldn't be in the cards...

    and did you see the deal that Stevie Johnson just got? Not a good start for us AT ALL
