Im a 9ers fan living 10 min from the Meadowlands.. The Giants players said and did the same thing with Kyle Williams. This was one of many articles = http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/01/giants_...
"Some Giants say they went after Williams with the intent to take him out of the game. "
I have not heard one thing about the Giants. This smells like a media witch hunt.Not saying that they were right, they lied and did it anyway, thats the biggest factor. This has been going on forever, its part of football and the reason coaches do not say much about injuries unless they have to. The other team goes after the weaknesses. Giants did it worse in that game and admitted it after. Im not upset about it, all part of the game.I love how everyone is appalled over this, wake up people, Buddy Ryan was 100 times worse! Hell the Lions were worse in 2011 and the Raiders have led the league in PFs for 20 years, think they dont have rewards? This is a joke how the media is latching onto this. Its like the Weather Channel when a Hurricane hits.
Again, my point is that the Giants did the same exact thing one week later and admitted to it after the game in multiple inrterviews, how come nobody was as appalled then? They talked about hitting Kyles head because they knew about his concussion. How is that any different? Where was the media backlash then ?
The point is the Saints were Paying players to take opponents out of the game, whether it was part of the game or in the pile after the play... Legally hitting a player within the rules is one thing, but when you start talking about punching people in the head in the pile, breaking ankles over the pile, taking out an acl etc, thats over the line ESPECIALLY for pay. Hitting a guy helmit to helmit who's had concussions is not to the level that the Saints were at.
Hitting a guy hard (legally) and making him hurt is part of football, but intentionally attempting to break ankles, tear acl's etc is not. I will be shocked if Greg Williams ever coaches again... and I think this is going to get much worse for the saints before it gets better.
