    Tommysgirl Third String But Playing on Special Teams

    I just have a question on the hit that took Garrard out of the game last night. I forget which Colt it was, but he clearly went right at his knees. It didn't look much different than the hit Wilfork laid (and honestly Wilforks didn't look as intentional). I'm not trying to stir up trouble, I honestly would like to know the difference in hits where Wilfork's was dirty and the Colts was not.

    Thank you, I thought I was crazy. I'm not even an "I hate the Colts everything they do is wrong person", I respect them and think they are a great team. That hit to me though looked as dirty as they come and it doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere.

    No I thought it should have been flagged too. He dove at the QB's knees and then it looked like he swung his hand to hit Garrard's ankle, too.

    they did the same thing to byron leftwich, and kyle boller a year or two ago. They're not a big defense so they tackle low. maurice jones drew sprained his knee according to weei. thats just how they play. their d line coach teerlinck is known for teaching players to attack players knees in a attempt to injure. heres a peice from two years back after they took out byron leftwich.

    Surpise, surprise, somebody asked the folks on Indy's MB about it, of course, there was nothing wrong, perfectly legal hit.

    I"m so glad someone brought this up. I was thinking the exact same thing last night when they showed the replay. If the NFL doesn't give this guy a 12,000 fine like Wilfork, I'm starting a petition!!!

    No. No at all. Even as a former QB I can say no. Much different than the Kimo hit on Palmer. Every low hit is not dirty.

    But, did you think Wilfork's was? That's my question. It didn't look any better than Vince's and he was fined.

    even more proof of the nfl bias against the pats.

    It must really sting when we continue to dominate even though they've done everything they possibly can to hurt this team.

    Are you friggin' kidding me? Are you asking because you really thought it was dirty or because he got hurt? Johnson was almost lying on the groung when we hit Garrard. And the only reason he got hurt was his ankle rolled under him. Not even close to a cheap shot. BTW, he still had the football.

    If that was one of the Pats player....no doubt they would say the Pats were classless and dirty in the headline news. And Goodnell probably will fine them...and then Peter King will bring it up on Sunday Night Football...

    No. I didn't think either of them were.

    As I stated several times now, I'm asking because I don't see the difference between that hit and the Wilfork hit!!!! The Colt player was being pushed down and so was Wilfork but Wilfork was fined, is he going to be to? Is that clear enough for you or shall I type it again?

    Umm, the guy's helmet made contact with Gerrard's knee, for crying out loud.
