Quote from Lions DC Gunther Cunningham
 
Suh's job against the Saints is particularly crucial as New Orleans often uses a double-tight-end look to help chip against defensive ends. Cunningham said the Saints "basically cheap-shot them with a shoulder. While the end is working on the tackle, all of a sudden he gets blindsided by a guy from the outside. (This) spreads the field and slows down the edge rushers."

Cunningham joked that he might need to make a trip to New York to visit the commissioner with clips of the strategy. He didn't joke, however, when he suggested the technique shouldn't be allowed.

"It's ridiculous," he said.

Since when is chipping illegal?

Maybe they think whining before they lose will sound less like sour grapes...

I wonder if his new "wrinkles" are this brand new tactic called stunts?

He didn't say "illegal", he said, "ridiculous" and "cheap shot". I don't see a problem with it, I'd like to see us do it, I mean, we have 3 perfectly good TEs in Pettigrew, Scheffler & Heller to do that with . . . it must be the "blind-side" aspect of it he's referring to, you know how the league is getting . . . anyway, I like the comment Cunningham made in Wk #13 on Drew Brees . . . something like, "Brees is rostered as 6'0" . . . he's no 6'0", I can put my chin on top of his head" . . . or something like that . . . he's really a funny guy . . .

go Lions.

I hope we chip our way all the way through Indy.
Graham, Gilmore, Thomas, and Sproles just chip their way to an open spot,
sit down and wait for Brees to call their number.
Frustrate the hell out of the pass rush.

Yeah, funny....

Drew may be 6.? .... but we'll laugh all the way through the playoffs with him.

Maybe at you, tomorrow.

Absolutely correct. If there is someone who knows something about cheap shots, it is Cunningham.

Well, enlighten me, I'm not really aware of his history, was he a cheap shot artist?
