Perfect timing.

It's debatable I suppose whether it was low-class or not, but I for one enjoyed the message it sent. Talk dat smack and you libel to get lit up.
I'm just saying light him up when he comes cross the middle.
Lay him out and seperate him from the ball on 3rd and 11.
Turn his feet up in the air so he hears foot steps on the next throw.
Get mad at him before he makes a play or crosses the goal line.
At that point you need to be mad at yourself.

And you guys ragged on me for saying I'd have no issue with someone popping Graham after his touchdown against Green Bay.

Now some of you are praising Harper for popping Smith.

Tsk tsk... funny how things work.

I agree a cheap shot is a cheap shot... it's tasteless and classless. I understand 2 wrongs don't make a right... but at the same time, it happens and it's apart of the game. That said, I would have liked Harper to be above that... but that's because I expect the best out of our players.

And get a penalty that might give them more points?..I think where he did it was just right..

Doesn't make a single difference in the world. Taunting is taunting period. The color of the jersey doesn't make it right or anymore acceptable.

It was an illegal hit and he was penalized for it. It certainly was a message hit, it was not a aweful shot. If Harper would have sent hi flying or out of the game, different story.

Smith should have been thrown out the game. I hope his fine will be on par with what Harper got.

It was a generalized statement strato... I didn't go back and read names from the old thread or anything.

It certainly felt good, but I agree a cheap shot is a cheap shot and should probably be avoided. With all of the bad blood in that game I'm just glad we left with a W. If nothing else it should add some interest to the next match-up.
