We need to get flagged more ala pollard and reed. Receivers need to understand that we're going to take a penalty or two sometimes whilst punishing them. They don't need to be out there running around care free playing against a defense that they aren't concerned about getting their bell rung against.
Not saying be dirty, but when you play hard and aggressive and look to punish offensive players...you're going to get flagged sometimes. That's just the reality.
Couldn't have said it any better. This team needs the aggression and that attitude. Someone who just doesn't give a **** who is lined up on the other side of the ball and intends on making them think twice about catching the ball over the middle. Cushing was exactly this as well so I have no issue with Swearinger.
