[quote user="MattMeyerBud"][quote user="dezzzR"]This whole saints bounty thing is such politically correct bull****. Now espn is highlighting tackles and sacks the saints have made the last 2 years and the media is trying to sell it like its some horrible act
it is horse ****
unless they were locking to tear somebodys knee up give REAL cheap shots to the head (im not talking about a hand grazing a face mask type thing) then they were in the wrong
But trying to hit somebody as hard as you can knock him out of the game is hwat football is all about...
No its not Matt. Your position is horse****.</p>
The goal on defense is to stop the offense and get turnovers. Not to try to injure your opponents.</p>
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
[/quote]hahaha, LT was the first pers. I thought of as well. Next was Ray Lewis.[/quote]</p>
Butkus came before those guys.</p>
The point is that the league has changed. While this kind of thing was accepted in previous eras, its not anymore. Player safety is an enormous concern for the league. I expect the punishment to be severe.</p>
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.
