Everybody go watch the Nick Bostic hit. The type of hit some wanted Swearinger to make, even though he's much smaller then Keller. Let me know if Bostic should've been fined, because he most definitely shouldn't have even though he was.

From someone that doesn't whine or complain.... Or buy that BS.....


Here you go Rez.... Argue with Gonzo.


"Said Gonzalez: "I saw (Swearinger's) remark, 'That's just football,' and he showed a little bit of grief for the guy -- I'm not buying it at all. Don't tell me that the rules prohibit you from hitting a guy up top. You have a whole target area above his knee up to his neck that you can hit. I've watched that play a bunch of times."

BTW... He echoed what I said... Thighs to neck is a big enough target for anyone to hit.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

Tony Gonzalez angry at 'ridiculous' hit on Dustin Keller - NFL.com

And Bostic just got fined for hitting with in that area. I don't care what an offensive player has to say. IDC that he wants to pretend like every player wasn't taught to hit low when facing a bigger target. IDC that everybody wants to pretend like Swearinger's style of tackle hasn't been a staple in the NFL for decades and nobody ever said anything. Keller isn't the 1st person to get his knee blew out from a low hit. Everybody see's hits like Bostic's get fined and this is what you get. The dude didn't aim deliberately for the knee. That play happened in a matter of seconds. Its just bad luck. Gonzalez can save it. I hope Harper hits him like that.

It's obvious "YDC", either reality plays no part in your opinion or you blindly stick to emotional decisions. You "hope Harper hits Gonzo in the knees"? You lack sportsmanship and all that goes along with it.

You say "the dude didn't aim deliberately for the knee".... You even try to argue with Swearinger. Swearinger went public to justify what he did, he stated he selected his hit spot, then explained that it was premeditated.

What damages Swearinger's case is that he's been disciplined for illegal hits before this situation...
