I know we have had Ginn in at #3 for his ability to stretch the field... but with Smitty out, I'm hope'n to see more of Hixon getting his rust knocked off. Man, to have another set of hands to catch the ball would be awesome move'n into the playoffs. Especially one that could be productive and not have much film (on our offense) on him to study.
But, Running the ball will be the name of the game, and I'm looking forward to some nice Up the gut Tol-Truck runs, bulldoze'n some Linebackers & Safeties, and some Dwill Rockets off the edge for big gains!
nah the place was shaking! I had to stop the person next to me from jumping up and down to let them know... and feel it for themselves... they said "that's kinda scary... BUT I DON'T CARE!!!" and continued celebrate'n! LOL
Stick with the Moorested play if youre trying to just "discuss" a specific dirty play
A Specific dirty play? So, in your opinion this was a dirty play as well, but not as bad as the facemask play?
I don't know. It's not that bad. All RBs get hit low, sometimes you are the grass and sometimes you are the lawnmower. If that was Sproles I would have hit him too.
the guy clearly went low... but where is the tackle? His arms are down, he planted his helmet on Stews knee. Arms out and around his legs to trip him up while going for the hit I would understand. but this was a hit to knock him out of bounds that was directed towards his knees. If it was his thigh... I could understand that too... but it wasn't.
Now, I'm not saying it was premeditated... but, this is the Saints... and you can't rule out the idea of "dirty pool" especially with the Hit on Smitty crossing the middle, the head hunting of Ted Ginn... and that hit on Stew.
Either way... it sucks for Stew. I wish him a fast recovery.
