Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

They were talking about this on SiriusXM NFL Radio this afternoon. They interviewed several former players who basically admitted that this is a wide-spread thing across the league and has been for a long time. However, the difference is it is usually done as a player-only funded and involved thing as a motivator in games. Not with the purpose of putting someone on a stretcher, end their career, etc. But to make a good, legal hit. A lot of it directed toward special teams play in particular. I can see something like this going on all the time in the league. The way it sounded like Gregg Williams ran it, however, seems like a different case. This definitely puts a twist on things. I hope he doesn't drag down the Skins organization with him.

Explain to me how the Saints get nailed and no one is saying anything about Gregg getting penalized now? Or could he be suspended while with the Rams? It always rubbed me the wrong way that Pete Carroll never got any penalties for what happened at USC. Sweatervest Boy at Ohio State got penalized before he could do anything with the Colts.

From what I understand the NFL investigation was only about the Saints, not the Redskins

That's too bad, ironically, GW was about the main reason Gibbs won 10 games twice. Maybe Gibbs should have paid our players for TD's those years. I kid...

It will be real disappointing if it should result in punitive action against the team......
Never did like GW....Good D coach though.

That's strange, but also fine with me.

Re: New Orleans Saints: Bounty Hunters
The Saints should be punished by having to trade Breesus for John Beck.

what are you talking about. Drew Brees is too short, and he only ran a 4.7 at his combine. Are you crazy!!!???????
And he was a 2nd rounder. Everyone knows good QBs can only be had with the first or second picks.

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

Just read across the ESPN news crawl that the bounty hunting has been confirmed with the Redskins from 2004-2007. This is all we need right now. Bet Danny is livid. Probably need to distance ourselves from this crap, this is all we need right now....plus Williams has issued a statement and apology for doing it and continuing to do it after he was told to stop....god damn it...

Re: New Orleans Saints/Washington Redskins: Bounty Hunters

So if I'm understanding this right is the reason the Saints are in trouble due to the fact that they were caught back in 2009, asked to stop, then continued doing it?
