He needs to straighten his pad level out to make sure he doesn't hyper extend his back ... The ball carrier should be doing the bending

Ben Watson or graham should blindside block him for 4 quarters (go for his knees)

Re: Swearinger says rules made him hit Keller low

Very unfortunate, but this is football, injuries happen. Swearinger shouldn't feel the need to defend the hit and I'm shocked at the number of people who are fired up about this. Hits like this happen in every game and if Keller wasn't hurt nobody would've said a word. People are upset because of the outcome, not because of the hit.

I would jump for joy if the Saints made more tackles like that. I'll never forget the day I was 7 or 8 and the other team put a big 100 pound boy at running back. I'm only like 40 pounds. Coach told us all, hit them legs. He'll go down. We hit them legs, he went back to defensive tackle. Its football
So you are saying that the only legal tackle was his legs?

I don't know football - I played Rugby in college.

No it was not close to as serious as NCAA or NFL - I get that. BUT I never intentionally tried to hurt anyone. EVER.

Hell the 2 teams would beat on each for 2 hours & then go to the nearest bar & drink & sing & eat.

I'm saying whether it was a legal hit or not, refs are throwing flags and Goodell is throwing out fines. In all honesty, they don't want you hitting players in the position that Keller was in at all. They want you to allow Keller to turn his head, get his feet on the ground, and start his movement forward before you touch him.

I can't even believe that people want to consider this a dirty hit or the wrong play to make. My God men are sounding like girls.

QB's used to protect their receivers from these situations. Throwing passes like that was called "hanging your receiver out to dry." Now you're expected to make every catch regardless the traffic and whoever's coming to hit you. So now people want to make sure receivers make these difficult catches without getting knocked out. It completely sucks for the defense.

And I don't think Swearinger was intentionally trying to tear his ACL. He tried to make a play. And you know what? He made that play. I commend him. Keep it up.

Re: Swearinger says rules made him hit Keller low

Do you think he would have hit the same area in an inter squad scrimmage? You honestly think he would have hit Johnson in the knees?


That's what I thought. First you say it wasn't intentional, then it's a legal hit... Your all over the board trying to defend a career ending hit that could have been avoided while still stoping the receiver for 0 YAC.



And no. The only person that has a tendency to naturally the crown of his helmet is a RB when he because drops his pad level not because he is afraid of the contact.

Everyone else bends at the hips and knees so they don't miss the tackle.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
