He found Ray Rice in the hole today and whiffed

 

Fair enough, I missed calling him out on that play if what you say is correct.  Whiffs are inexcusable imo.  Make a fuging tackle... always.

Is it worth the occasional personal foul penalty to have a safety who intimidates opposing receivers?

(and/or sometimes knocks them out)

If a QB knows he is weak in coverage....will a hit on some WR suddenly cause him to stop looking?

There is a fine line between nasty and stupid. Hope we r nasty as hell but not stupid as hell.

Could you rephrase so that I know precisely what you are asking?  The first part of your question is somewhat... ambiguous?

No, your essentially giving 15 yards for free in the hopes of a specific circumstance happening, and you have no idea what the mindset of that receiver may be.

Mitchell's late hit penalty was a pretty tacky call...

All depends on the game situation. Sometimes, if it won't kill field position, maybe.

No, but will the receiver staring down a nasty shot think twice when that ball comes his way?

That's the question.

YES! but his coverage abilities is questionable.

 

Still want Mikell.

I do think there needs to be some fear of going over the middle. I'd say if they were going to lay a statement hit it would be better to do it earlier in the game...impacts more of the game and if there is a penalty we have more time to recover from its effects.
