Unfortunately, football is a violent game. As much as they would like to take the other guy out, I don't believe they enjoy seeing anyone being carried out on a stretcher.

Man, that was a major shot he took. The slow motion replays show exactly how violent this sport is.
I'm glad he had movement in his extremities but you know there is a good chance he doesn't even remember the play. Either of them for that matter.

I saw his neck snap, I am really worried about his neck, does anyone know, is he okay.

This guy doesnt just get injured, his injuries are usually pretty severe. I think it is time he find a safer job for himself, like explosive technician or something.

The hit was close to being a helmet to helmet hit. Their was no penelty but in looking at the replay the commissioners office may see the hit as illegal.

Not an illegal hit. Just unfortunate result.
What a hit

That was one solid hit. I didn't see anything illegal about as the defender led or tried to lead with his shoulder. I am glad that it appears that both players are going to be okay. Thank God.
These gifted athletes, when they see another player down, realize how violent this game is. They began to see, if only for a brief moment, that there are some things more important than playing professional football. It is what it is, let's continue to pray for Willis McGahee complete recovery. He has indeed had some pretty devastating injuries.

Does anyone know if he's okay? Very scary hit.

On the positive side of the injury, he'll have the whole off season to heal up and won't be trying to rush back to play in two weeks.

He took a big hit in the Fiesta bowl against Ohio state and took another one against the Steelers. These guys are both tough and talented.
