Anyone see Parcells giving the stare to Newman after that play? All I could imagine was him saying "Newman" in that disgusted Seinfeld way. Makes me laugh even now.

Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

all the tackles that Roy did during the Skins game were legal, because he didnt grab the pads, but I still think its a dirty move, like pulling the chair in basketball, it is legal but its dirty and this can cause injury.

I think they really need to look at the rule again this offseason... has anyone actually seen it called this season??

There seems to be this vague interpretation of what a horse collar actually is, I say if you grab the back of the shoulder pads around the collar area it should be a penalty, period.

What do you guys think?
roy williams simply gets around his new rule by grabbing people by the back of the jersey at the neck, instead of grabbing the shoulder pads. That's why they never call it, but he's still injuring people. If the NFL was smart, they'd simply outlaw tackling by grabbing people from the back of the neck area on the jerseys, no matter where the hand is. This new rule has done absolutely nothing to stop him and he's still injuring people by it.

Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

This is football not woose-ball. All the rules now a days are all about protecting the star offensive players or helping create more offense for the typically uneducated football fan that only cheers when there is a TD.
Soon they will out-law tackling any skill position player from behind.

i'm only talking about grabbing people by the neck area and pulling them down. i don't care if they get tackled from behind anywhere else.

I agree, especially when it comes to defensive pass interference, because I hate how you can not even touch the reciever, it is bull. But when it comes to this kind of tackle, I think it should be illegal, it is just plain dirty and dangerous. He could easily grab the legs of the player rather than the neck area. I do not think we are at that level of creating more offensive so the uneducated can follow football, thats hockey.

Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

Yeah, but football players get hurt every game. You cannot create a rule every time a player gets hurt. Horse collar tackles have existed since day 1 of football. But a star WR gets hurt and suddenly it is not ok.
You want an easy way to reduce injuries, get rid of artificial turf. But that would cost money, so it will never happen.

I agree. The way this tpye of thing used to be dealt with was by the players. Guys like Roy Williams were scared to make such tackle because they knew they'd pay for it later on. It wasn't a porblem until the league started clamping down so much that retaliation, no matter how deserved, wasn't allowed.

Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

To tell you the truth, when I see Roy tackling like that all it means it that our so called linebackers have blown outside contain AGAIN!!!! But Roy was a non factor in that game.
The big hit - few by Dallas - was by our FS Keith Davis.

If Roy isn't flying into holes stopping the run, he ain't very effective.

Cover 2/4 really isn't why he got drafted in the first round.

I am just kidding.
The thing I notice about the recent history of these rules is thay all happend in the playoffs or a game that has serious playof implications.

1) 2 or 3 years ago the Patriots crushed the Press' Golden Boy Peyton Manning by jamming the receivers at the line and disrupting their timing. So the next year, no touching receivers after five yards.

2) Late in the regular season last year, Williams opens a can of whip ass on the mentally handicapped TO and no more horse collar tackles. To TO's credit he made it back for the SB.

Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

Say you saw clinton portis running downfield, and all of sudden Roy Williams comes running up behind him, jumps a bit, grabs Portis by the back of his neck, yanks him backward, breaks his neck, and ends his pro career. Would you guys say, ah it's just a part of the game, we'll move on?

Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

Dangersous things happen on the football field every game, should we cancel the sport?
For example a WR jumps high for a ball with his back to the Defensive back. The DB proceeds to take the legs out form under the WR while he is still in the air. The WR does a 180 in the air and lands on his head. I have seen this happen many times, but it is not out-lawed. Darryl Stingley of the NE Patriots is paralyzed from this situation happening when Oakland raiders Safety Jack Tatum did this exact thing to him back on Aug. 12, 1978. This kind of hit is not outlawed.
Football is a dangerous sport. The only problem I have is the rules are made to protect the offensive player twice as much as for the defensive player. Plus add in all the rules made to create more offense. The game is turning into the canadian football league, tons of scoring and no defense.

Thumbs down Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

You got to be kidding me! Williams grabbed him by the shirt, not the pads and Portis fell forward on his left shoulder, he in no way was bent backwards, which is what the rule is in place to avoid. This isn't flag football, it's the N-F-L!

Tackling is why girls don't play the game.

Marcus Washington has a BLANTANT hit out-of-bounds on Witten after the whistle in the first quarter Witten was injured on that "dirty play", and you accuse Williams of being dirty?. Get real.

Look congrats on a solid win, and there are no excuses for that Cowboys loss except we got our butts handed to us.

But you won the game, Portis is fine, and you have a valid shot at the playoffs.

If you can;t be satisfied with that, then sit down and have a nice warm cup of "shut the fu*k up"!

Re: Roy Williams = dirty tackler

Witten hadn't gone out of bounds and he was still trying to go forward....Washington made sure he wasn't gonna go foward. It was a bad call....

I don't give a flying fruit what the rules are. I think we established that, the rules need to be changed. I don't care if they take the rule out all together because as you said this ain't flag football but if it is a rule I don't see how it is safer to pull a player the way roy has been doing all year and the way he did it last year. It is for the safty of the players, just because your "pro bowl" overrated safty can't tackle for shit doesn't mean he has to try to hurt other players. How many players did he put on the injured list last year with that weak ass pussy tackle?? 3 or 4!? it isn't a fun hit to watch, it isn't hard, it is made to injure the player and just because no one ever taught him to tackle right way doesn't give him the right to mess up player's careers. If it is gonna be a rule they should actually call it and if the player pulls the guy down by the horse collar it should be called.

Roy said himself that he doesn't care about the rule he will tackle the way he always has.
I say just take it out all together if it isn't gonna be called.

Next Marcus obviously didn't mean to do that. I looked at it and the ref said that witten was done making forward progress. That is simply untrue. The player was clearly inbounds and marcus isn't the type that would hit a player out of bounds like that, therefore it wasn't blantant. Roy williams tries to hurt people and not the normal kind of hurt, he tries to end their seasons
