Be a man.
Tell your blockers to hurt the guy when you are in the hudle.
I got no room for men playing childrens games for millions of dollars and then crying about the danger.
Wah Wah Wah.
Go buy a new $100,000 necklace, maybe that will shake off the scare.

Oh, you mean it was the play where the football player flexed his muscles in celebration afterwards? I guess that narrows it down to one of about 93 plays during that (and every other) game.
I love watching football, but who isn't tired of all the ridiculous personal celebrations after every play? "Adrian Peterson gained 8 yards on the carry, but I gang tackled him with 3 other guys, WOOHOO, look at my freaking biceps!!!"
Imagine if other professional athetes played this way? You don't see the Wild flexing or spiking their gloves when they clear their zone. You don't see the Twins howling like idiots when they make the double play. You don't see the Timberwolves...(nix that thought -- now there's a team that truly hasn't done anything right). But you get my point. I understand that the NFL is entertainment, but I'm seeing less flexing and showboating when I watch WWE.
Great post. I agree with everything except I don't warch WWE.

Great post and what I basicly was saying to start this thread. IT was legal so deal with it and do not whine to the media about it...

With all of the fines doled out by the NFL for questionable hits, the league office has created all of this whining. These type of hits have always happened, but the complaining about them is getting worse. Why? The league will fine them if they complain loud enough. This is further proof of the wussification of America!
Deal with it on the field, not in the papers.
I think Allen saw last week how he will be treated if he continues his questionable hitting.

It's my understanding that this comment was made in regards to a question asked in an interview. I believe the reporter asked if he ever gives second thought to his punishing running style, and he cited that play as the one thing that had him thinking.He didn't just decide to randomly throw it out there weeks after the game

Freaking cheddar heads talking smack about the Vikings, priceless.
They have nothing to cheer for AGAIN, and more than likely will continue that tradition for decades to come.
How does it feel to s u c k after a 13-3 season?

One has to laugh at the above statement. Ignorance speaks yet once again. While it is true that this year has not been what was expected but that is more the result of inj. and last sec loses than talent and tradition.

AGAIN ? What a TOOL statement.

Too bad those records are with Favre, who is a legendary QB that you NO LONGER HAVE. And you can't blame this season solely on injuries, because your defense was, for the most part, healthy until you lost Nick Barnett and AJ Hawk and Poppinga were revealed to be overrated players.

And I hate to break it to you, but last second losses? Good teams don't even give other teams that chance, and on the off chance they do, they don't let them win.

EVERY player who does that should be flagged, period. You are correct all the way...can you imagine a player showboating after scoring a touchdown years ago against, say Allan Page..that player would have been injured for the season the next time he set foot on the field guaranteed....yes, they are getting paid millions to make a friggin tackle so they go nuts and show off, it is sick and should be banned, end of story....

This has been going on since the game began. It used to be a staple of the game, put their best player on the bench. Of course they prefer to put him on the bench only for that game but if it is longer, they really don't care.

The NFL has been trying to stamp it out since players became stars and salaries increased. But only because it affects the NFL's bottom line if star players are out.

I am glad AD finally realized it. It is better than it used to be but clearly still exists.

The FACTS that you may not be aware if is that AR is having a much better year than BF.

TD's.. AR 22 BF 20
Yards.. AR 3192 BF 2845
YPG ...AR 245 BF 218
INT's AR 11 BF 15
QB rating AR 92.1 BF 88.2

To somewhat agree the Def was playing ok til the Inj started stacking up. http://www.packers.com/team/injury_list/

TO BREAK IT TO YOU...Some years you stay healthy and win those games at the bell and some years you do not. That's life in the NFL but for him to re write history and even use the word AGAIN is simply foolish on his part and I had to call him on it.
