    Well, he says in part, but I can't imagine it's a big part. Everyone thought he got tossed. I'm sure he thought he got tossed and wasn't simply leaving the field in anger and "quitting", or whatever.

    As long as it is handled properly (I feel CFB is too strict, but it's college so that's understandable), good.

    These three ,1 game suspension piss me off.
    Dear every player in the NFL, head hunt all you want and only expect to sit 1 game.

    I almost feel bad for what Everson Griffen is going to do to Kalil on Sunday. Almost.

    Captain's awesome though. Everyone loved him in Minnesota.

    At some point you've just got to accept who he is and what he's capable of and give him some help. He's been solid in like half the games this year, but when he's overmatched, he's really overmatched.

    Yuck. I'm all for player safety, but targeting is one of the worst rules in college football.

    Actually from Troy Vincent. It won't pass. They already flag too many clean hits anyway.

    I love how talk of a targeting rule starts being floated around right after they rescind Iloka's blatant, intentional head shot suspension.

    What's "clean" has changed. The NFL doesn't want anymore hits to the head. Fines aren't working. No reason to be against this.

    The college targeting rule is awful and policed poorly. Don't want to see that in the NFL.

    In related news. I wanna clap for Mike Mitchell, I know I'm probably in the minority, but I agree with almost everything he said. I'm all for player safety but at the end of the day it's still football and you know what you're signing up for. I didn't see any problem with Smith-Schuster's hit. Maybe a 15 yard penalty for crack back at the most. And it's a joke that he got the same suspension as Gronkowski did for a blatant dirty cheap shot.

    Just because something is inherently violent/dangerous doesn't mean you can't take steps to make it safer.

    And speaking of Carolina



    Would be the first game he's seen snaps in since the opener. They're going to need all the help they can get against the Vikings defensive line.

    EDIT: Err, meant for this to go in the Week 14 thread. Oh well.

    Ask the tobacco lawyers how far "They knew the risks" gets you in court.

    I will never understand how a **** of a wide-receiver like Ken Britt would ever have any sort of upgradeability for a WR corps at this point in a losing season when he literally has no experience with the team's offence system and no rapport with the rookie Q.B. at all, and is being cut by the one team that anyone who watches football would think might have a shot at being worse than the Bears at football despite what the records say at this point in the season and I would wager a bet that the Browns actually beat the Bears on X-mas evening this year with or without Ken Britt, I mean, are you kidding me?

    Britt is a lost cause. He's done.

    Love Wilks, but this is his first year as a DC. I don't think he's ready to be a HC yet.

    Have you looked at Bears roster?

    He would be an upgrade over most if not all of the WR's on roster

    And as I said in my post I would sign him for remainder of this year + next year so it wouldn't just be bringing him in to play a few games

    Sign him today , Sit him next week and have him play final 2 games and then go into next year

    As for Browns part. Most people expect Browns to win especially fans Chicago so its not going out on a limb to say you think they will win

    Hell I think the Browns will win and so do most of Hawks posters in Bears thread

    Bears just got asses kicked by a 1 win team ,, Being blownout by a winless Browns wouldn't be shocking or surprising
