Anyone who actually watched the game will remember this.
I love the Japenese version.
Would be like playing a game of friendly touch wih your friends in the local park, and then someone goes postal and cuts a knee out on some poor sap going out for a pass!
Word to Sean Taylor...it's only a freaking exhibition!
I didn't like that hit at all. Its a freaking exhibition game, that means nothing. Anyways I can listen to the japenese all day. Reminds me of MXC
The Japanese version is awesome.
It's called "football"
So if some coach had called an all out blitz on (insert your favorite QB here) and the players would have obeyed and the end result would have been a career ending injury, would you have still said "it's football"???
99% of those guys were going at 25-50% and Taylor's 'roids decided to kick in at the wrong time.
No its called class. I know what football is, what they do in the Pro Bowl, certainly.......is not football. It is an excuse for a game. Trying to kill a punter in a exhibition game that means nothing is sad.
I'm sure the Bills were ecstatic that Belichick called a fake with their Pro Bowl punter. That was real classy, Bill.
The fact Moorman jumped up almost faster then Taylor did was pretty funny though. And any game where they have so many restrictions on what can be done (no blitz, no rushing field goals, no zone) is not really a game. The only reason I watched was to see AJ and switch the channel when the NFC had the ball.
Moorman is a gamer, this guy did the skills challenge at the Pro-Bowl last year, he competed in the open field and NFL's fastest man challenge. He represented himself well in both.
If anybody here has ever watched Taylor play he goes after everybody the same way, whether it is a punter in the Pro Bowl or a 300 lb. OG in a playoff game.
What is the point of having a Pro Bowl if everybody is gonna cry about a guy playing like it is a real game.
Which is more meaningless? The Pro Bowl or having 4 pre-season games?
If you get hurt in the Pro Bowl you have the entire offseason to recover.
If you get hurt in one of the meaningless exhibition games in the pre-season you will miss time during the season to help your team.
At least the Pro Bowl means something. It is an honor to be there and anybody who goes half-ass is doing a disservice to the fans who voted for them.
As a fan watching the game I liked it.
But if I were a player in the game, I'd have had a few words with him. I think the kicker was being cynical when he went over and patted him on the back.
I think they should do away with the pro-bowl if it's not going to have any meaning.
I'd rather see an all rookie game or something...
Every site I go to, everyone is wanting to get on Taylor for the hit. I personally thought it was great. Things that come to my mind when I read all the complaining about the hit are 1) like Lucky said if Belichick is going to call a fake punt in this "exhibition" game, then you get hit. 2) Everyone complains about they hate that the Pros aren't going full speed, aren't trying' just earning a check. Then one guys goes full speed and hits someone and then everyone does a 180 and starts going after him.
Regardless of the whole clean hit thing or not, I would LOVE a safety in our secondary that would lay the wood like Taylor and put the fear in the WR's coming across the middle! Whether you like him as a person you can not takeaway the fact that he is a playmaker that can cause fumbles, make the big hits, get the INT. or cover the WR/TE, which exactly what we need!
For anyone who has played football..I did through high school..you always hear the mantra of play hard because when you go half speed you get hurt. Honestly, they are out there in pads and if you are playing football you should play full speed and hit. The mantra is true..it is the guys sitting around piles and lolly-gagging around who get hurt. They have pads on and it is a game..got for it.
That's what I was always taught.
Most the time, the only kids that got hurt on my high school teams were the ones who were playing or practicing half-ass.
Yeah seriously. When I play football (DE and DT), I don't ease up on a man. You got all of this going for you, so you just hit hard, no matter what.
It does show alot about his play style. He goes hard no matter what. In his mind its: the punter shouldn't have been so stupid. I don't like the fact that he layed out a punter, but I am glad at least someone tries hard all the time, even in the games that don't matter.
