I guess someone has to get seriously hurt or killed before the NFL puts a stop to “head hunting” trend in this league.
There wasn't a better example than James Harrison’s hits on Joshua Cribbs and Mohamed Massaquoi, the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker pounded on both of the Cleveland Browns offensive players and took them out of the game.
Was that the intended consequence, it could have been, they are two of the best offensive players the on the Browns roster.
We can sit around and call Mr. Harrison a dirty player, but lets be honest, that’s the culture of the game, even at the high school level the “knock out” hit is a big “badge of honor” for the deliverer.
Can we agree on that ?
Maybe Mike Ditka has the right idea- NO FACE MASK- maybe that way the pretty boys won’t use their heads as a weapon.
