Harper Becoming a Thug?

Harper Becoming a Thug?

I've posted my dislike for Harper as a Defensive Back on this site; have had my disagreements with some about his game...

But the unsportsmanlike conduct penalties he's drawn or becoming more regular than defensive stops for this squad...

Frankly, I like a "tough" defense - but the kind that Rickey Jackson and Vaughan Johnson led, not this thuggish brand that Harper has shown as of late...

Maybe if/when Greg Williams leaves after this season, he can take "Toast" with him...

Bust 'em up Harper. Our D needs all the fire it can get. If Suh is available I'd sign him too. Seriously.

To answer the question in your thread title. NO!

You could have followed up by saying: "I HATE ROMAN HARPER."

Had you done that, you would have saved yourself some typing.

Every subsequent keystroke says the same thing............

I don't think he's a thug. Was the facemask wrong? Yes. Was it justified? Hell yes! The way things were going for them, they would have gotten flagged anyway, might as well make it worth while. Just my opinion though.

I like Harper. I have noticed his attitude as of late. Even in the Detroit game. I think he's is trying to be a little more aggressive. I actually didn't think the facemask looked intentional. I'm not against him being a jerk, as long as it doesn't cost us games.

We are SO beatable on long passes. He's probably as frustrated as most, but it wasn't intentional.

Alaska still in TN

Harper isn't the only reason we are so beatable in long passing situations. All we would have to do is play man to man with the safeties helping over the top, but no G.W. puts them in a "prevent" playing 20 yards off the receivers
