First let me say, that I'm happy to see we still have the board. I don't know about you, but I haven't been able to access the site for the last couple days and was worried that they finally pulled the plug.
Now, to last nights game. It's one of the only games I watched from beginning to end this season and it was definitely could theater.
The Ryan Shazier injury. He reminds me a lot of Troy Polamalu, unbelievable athlete, can change a game with his play making ability, but also, like Troy, a terrible tackler and is going to get himself killed. Horrible tackling form, and if you continue to lead with the crown of your head like that you are either going to end up concussed or paralyzed. Charles Woodson preached after the game to all the young football players, "Heads UP!!" "See what you are tackling".
The hit on Burfict. I wish JuJu wouldn't have stood over him after making the hit, but my guess is that there were a ton of happy players around the NFL who applauded the hit in a way that was like "uh hah, it's about time someone got him and gave him a taste of his own medicine".
The hit on Brown, how he was able to hold onto that ball and not be concussed himself is still a mystery to me.
When are Defensive backs going to learn not to tackle L. Bell up high?
Roethlisberger was like jeckyl and hyde from half to half
Going into the game, I thought Cincinnati was going to win based on where the two teams are in their schedule and priorities. Should have known, same old Bengals.
Refs over-officiated that game without a doubt.
Was John Gruden drunk? He called players by the wrong name at least 6 to 7 times.
Peter King on Twitter said that this game would make more parents not allow their sons to play football
