[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>
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.
And BTW, this bounty thing hurts the defense. How many times have we seen guys try to make the big hit without wrapping up. Happens all the time anymore. When you wrap up you give up the "big hit" but increase the chances of making the tackle.</P>
BTW...my goal is to get as many posters as possible to have me as the star of their sigs.</P>
I'm flattered really.</P>
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
Please find me my post where I said we should have "big hits".</P>
Don't mischaracterize my position.</P>
