    $50,000 to knockout a QB for 6 weeks with a dirty hit

    Mario & Ryans ought to take out Manning & Collins.

    I would like to see the Colts with Sorgi running the show for 6 weeks.

    It would be worth the money. IMO

    How about Schaub filing criminal charges like they do in hockey?

    Maybe Schaub should just do some head-stomping ala Haynesworth.

    The suspension would be less than the time he'll miss with the injury, and it'll send a message.


    Kidding, obviously.


    What I'd really like to see is some hard cut blocking. I thought the Texans were supposed to employ a very high injury scheme against opposing DLs. I've yet to see a single DL go down against a cutblock from one our guys. I'm not advocating injury, I just want them to use the technique thats supposed to put the fear of God into DL

    If Mario did to Manning what Allen did to Schaub, he would have a 4 game suspension.

    Unfortunately that is the way the NFL works.

    The Mannings are the royalty of the NFL landscape.

    Hey, we can't even get to the QB, how the hell are we ever going to hurt one?

    50k divided by 11 is 4545.45. With everyone's play they should contribute that much so that whoever gets the fine doesn't have to pay it all himself.

    That's nonsense. Everyone knows our defense can't get to the QB.

    These teams ought to be glad I'm not running things. After the Schaub debacle, I'd be paying the fines for guys like Bulman and Cochran. Sweep the leg!

    Maybe we can draft somebody that can get in the same zip code as Manning this year.

    I'd take Buddy Ryan in a heartbeat over anything we've had here since he left. Hell, maybe we could get him to punch Richard Smith on the way out.

    You and me both .... bounties on opposing players , punching people in the mouth players and defenses that were downright mean .... we are so far removed from that .... its like the GOP 30 years ago as compared to today.


    What was that helmet his ST players use to wear ? ..... :thinking:

    Amen

    Atleast Buddy knew what type of defense he wanted to run & the type of players he needed to run it. This is why he could take late rd. draft choices & turn them into probowlers. (Simmons, Joyner, Dent, Fencik & Bishop to name a few).

    I wonder if the greatness that is Dick Smith will ever lead to the late rd. choices of HOF players like Ryans system did.

    I cant find the sarcasm thingy.

    I'm assuming you're being sarcastic about Mario taking out Manning.

    I'll never root for a player to get hurt.

    I can only pull for jerks to get hurt. Manning sounds like a good guy, so I dont hope for injury.

    I root for the Texans & anything that helps the Texans is fine with me.

    I'm tired of other teams cheap shoting our QB. I think pay back is the only way to stop the cheap shots.

    I wish the NFL wasn't this way but oh well let the games begin.
