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

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

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.

Still want Mikell.

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

(and/or sometimes knocks them out)

 

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.

Gettin the intimidation going in the preseason so they don't have to rack up penalties in the regular?

I would rather have a safety laying the wood and taking an occasional penalty than watch DJ Campbell supposedly play safety on that 3rd quarter TD pass by Flacco.

 

It's a lot easier to fix over-aggressiveness than teach aggressiveness.

Maybe so but how about the hit on the qb that was not called? I watched his late hit last year aginst Cam and I have wached him this year I think he crosses the line in todays NFL and will be a liability. Having said that I would take him over naki

Sure but but there is a fine line to walk ....if it cost your team 15 yards in a critical part of the game it is not worth it.

We're going to see a lot of dink and dunking from opposing offenses this year.  DBs absolutely have to hit receivers hard.  Penalties or not, QBs are not going to respect this secondary.

QB's might not, but if you think you are about to get the ever loving poo knocked out of you, it changes how you prepare. That's part of what made Hines Ward so invaluable for years. He seemed to not care if the big hit was coming.
