Re: What were you thinking when Jason went down?

i am going to agree that he did lose his balance but it is his responsibility to makes sure and not hit the QB at the knees. It is a rule. It is pre-season. It was stupid on his part and a fine should be issued. That easily could have destroyed a young QBs season and damaged his career. Very few players actually would ever mean to hurt someone in a pre-season game so i don't credit him for lack of intent. He lost his balance but still recovered before making the hit which was after the pass to begin with.

As Joey T said after the play, 'just because you stumble doesn't mean you go low". I also agree with his assessment as he went on, 'he had plenty of time to adjust his hit". He really did.

Re: What were you thinking when Jason went down?

I'm sure Gibbs already has sent in a film review to the league office regarding the low hit. I don't think it was an intentionally dirty hit, just not well thought out. When your adrenaline is super-charged and you're doing your job of getting to the QB, sometimes it's hard to pull in the reins.

After thinking more about it, I tend to agree with you now. I said before, that while I don't think it was the dirtiest hit ever I still think it was really cheap and I think the dude needs to be fined by the league. I don't think he should be suspended but he needs to be fined because it really appeared that he could have avoided hitting Campbell's knee if he tried to.

I thought the same thing at first that it was just one of those things that happen. Then as I watched from another view from a shot which was on 99's side of the play I changed my mind. He was trying to get up and then lundged forward and the only chance of hitting JC was going to be a low blow. He had know chance of even coming close to hitting him with a legal shot so yes it was a illegal hit. Now I will agree that he was just trying to make a play but these guy's are taught from day one that its an illegal shot so he knew better. If he would not have lundged forward that would be a different story but he did and we are lucky that JC did not have a worse injury.

Re: What were you thinking when Jason went down?

In regards to the relative cheapness of the shot on Campbell: After, the Steeler kind of stumbled, he has a choice. He can either attempt to regain his balance and probably not hit the quarterback at all or he can immediately dive at Campbell's knees. He chose the latter.

I think players are afraid to do the first thing because they will be criticized by their coaches for being soft. If they were to say, "But it's a pre-season game" the coaches would probably put that player in the "lacks killer instinct" file. Defensive coaches want players with hard hearts. Think about Greg Williams. Do you think he would want Andre Carter to pull up and avoid a low hit because he doesn't want to hurt someone in pre-season. No way. Williams would make them run wind sprints for doing that.

Btw, I just remembered that a similar thing happened to Brunell against the Giants in Deember 2005. Giant comes in stumbles and then blows up Brunell's legs. If they want to stop that from happening they need to treat those situations as though there was no stumble. The only excuse would be being blocked into the QB or tripping over someone and falling into him. Everything else should be treated as a straight up Raiders of the 70s cheap shot. (In the case of Brunell, I think Coughlin told them to go after his knees, but that's just me. I always thought THAT stumble was a little bit on the suspicious side. He seems like that sort of coach)

Thats exactly what I was thinking. It looked exactly like the Carson Palmer hit but this time it was JC at Fed Ex field. Kiesel had plenty of time to adjust his hit.......Luckily JC was able to walk off the field with only a sprain/bruise.

He was going down and off balancewhen he made the hit and I dont think you can ask guys to not try to make the play.... I can see where you're coming from, and I think if he's fined this week its perfectly warrented, but I dont think you can suspened a guy for somthing like that, but thats just me.

I just think if say C. Griff did somthing like that week 3, and he was suspended for a game, skins' fans would be going ape-shit. Fine, yes, guys get fined all the time for hits and I dont think this is any different, but a suspension I think would be far to harsh

You're right, we definitely will have agree to disagree because I'm thinking at least 4 game suspension is warranted for ending someone's season and possibly career.

Have you ever seen Redskins players dive at the legs of opposing player?

Re: What were you thinking when Jason went down?

It was more like "what was I throwing at the TV" when JC was hit! I had to clear my kids out of the room I was so freaked. I really thought he ripped his ACL, MCL, or something to shreds. I was very pleased to learn later that he wasn't seriously injured. Even though I wanted to jump on the first flight out of Atlanta to personally hunt down the Steeler defender that nearly ruined JC's knee, I did think it was classy for him to come over and offer his regrets. However, I see that there are many varied opinions on his actual motive. I'll reserve final judgement for now.

If it were a regular season game, I would want our guys to do the same thing. You can't have your pass rushers thinking, "I hope I don't hurt the Quarterback."

But no. I haven't seen it that I recall. Of course, we were the 31st ranked defense last year, so...

In all the years GW has been coaching them I have never seen them dive at the lower legs of a QB. There have been plenty of opportunities for them to dive, with them getting late to the QB and all, but they never dive.

This whole thing is pretty simple to me and warrants serious punishment and I'm not saying that because it's Jason Campbell, I would be saying the same thing if it was Romo or Eli.

You drive drunk ---> You could kill someone.
You dive at the legs ---> You could end someone's season.

I said...

"NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! !"

He's very lucky. He said it best, if his foot was planted, he would've been in BIG trouble.

The guy was in the heat of the battle and stumbled and fell into JC's legs. You could see he even tried to wrap JC up while he was getting hit. It was not a dirty hit in the least bit nor should the guy be fined. No way could the defender re-gain his balance, lift his body above JC's waist and hit him. That is just ridicules. It's football and guys are going to get hit and that's just how it is. The league has gotten way to sensitive about this all because of Carson Palmer. That hit on Palmer started all this non sense. In the pocket guys are going to be getting pushed and shoved all over the place and at some point someone is going to fall on the QB's knee. If Andre Carter did the same thing to Tony Romo we all would be defending Carter.

Does anyone remember the hit on Trent Green a few years ago? That is a dirty hit cause Rodney Harrison had plenty of time to pick himself back up, he just choose not to.

Re: What were you thinking when Jason went down?

Thanks for the love. Recently moved to NYC last year (for work), but despite being in Giants/Jets territory (and keeping up on Strahan's baby mama drama), my blood will forever remain burgundy and gold. I plan to make it down for games, and will represent at Giants Stadium. Gotta find a Redskin network up here, otherwise all i've got is cable.

Been a fan forever, and know that the only true monument in the nation's capitol, hands down, is RFK. I swear I heard Theismann's leg snap that Monday night; I remember when MC Hammer was the Falcon's 12th Man. And Art Monk (tears well)...Canton...I still have my Mobil yellow seat cushion, the one that 54,999 other fans thew when he caught Rypien's pass that sent us to the SuperBowl. And then the tough love years of revolving coaches and 5-11. Still, you can get through it all if you head to the RV section for some serious tailgaiting. Find a Winnebago called Da Mayor. Back in the day, Marion Barry used it for "community outreach" before the b*tch set him up. A bar owner snagged it in an auction, and there's always a plate.

I could go on, I don't alway live in the past, and promise not to be this wordy. Just thought I'd put out my Redskin cred.

Re: What were you thinking when Jason went down?

The hit on Campbell's knee may not have been intentional...but it was illegal. A fine should be in order and I am interested to see if Goodell will maintain order as much "on the field" as he is interested in "off the field".

Also...Stephon Heyer has got to learn to stay with his block and pancake a guy who stumbles like that. In no way should a guy be let go to scramble toward our #1 QB. God damn it grow a set and finish your blocks. Bury the guy into the ground so he can't do anymore damage. I cannot wait until Samuels comes back.

Hail!
