Harper is not "dirty". He is a hard nose player that knows how to lay a hit. I have to listen to games becuase I line in Los Angeles, and even the biased Titan commentators said that it was not a helmet-to-helmet hit.

That said, there have been so many rule changes that 5 years ago none of his hits would have been penalties. Yeah, the face mask was "rough" but it is no different that a PI where they tackle the reciever while the ball is in the air.

I will take #41 any day of the week, because he has fire and heart

If you don't know, now you you know.......

Harper has mentally gotten into some of the players head although I don't think that's in his mind set. Saints had some bad calls against them in the game but in the Williams led defense mind state he encourage the hit. Dirty player no aggressive yes.

He saved a TD with that play. If the situation comes up I hope he does it again. The goal is to win, without getting anyone suspended.

Me either, no problem with Harper except his pass coverage. Defense is suppose to destroy things, its their job. I would NEVER worry about how hard I hit a QB or any offensive player if I played on defense. IT really would never occur to me to care in the spit second I took a WR head off. Harper grabbed the WR shoulder pad then grabbed the face mask, and Im glad he did. Its better to get a penalty than a TD. It was a smart move by harper.

I don't have a problem with Harrison either, kill the firkin QB if he runs.

Suh - is a dirty player same as hansworth, you don't cheap shot a player after the play over or you have an emotional problem.

Saints proved that pigs could fly in 2009.
Now its time for another miracle SuperBowl and go where no pig has gone before.
