    That was a completely flagrant chickensh!t play. No excuse for that period, but it seems even more ridiculous since it was a preseason opener and that was our backup QB. This guy is a chump.

    During the first quarter of Thursday night’s game between the Steelers and Eagles, Philadelphia cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie launched at Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich, hitting Leftwich in the head after Leftwich had thrown the ball.

    Rodgers-Cromartie correctly was flagged for unnecessary roughness.

    He soon will correctly be fined.

    The launching made the outcome more flagrant than the run-of-the-mill helmet-to-helmet hit on defenseless players. In fact, it could have justified an ejection.

    If the league is serious about removing such dangerous blows from the game, it arguably merits a one-game suspension.

    Oh, good; Judge Florio is back.

    Can't say that you've been missed during the off-season.


    Sorry that RoCro gave you the opportunity, but now that he has, it was top-tier aggregious and deserves recompense.
    PLEASE DON'T FEED THE TROLLS

    Whatever happened to Dave Chappelle?

    My friends and I never could decide which was the funniest skit of all time.

    I think it's a toss up between the one Wayne Brady skit and the N*****s skit.

    Apparently there was some fighting with Comedy Central about creative control. Then he got burnt out and just quit. I hope he comes back someday. Such a funny, talented guy.

    My two personal favorites were Prince and the one about the black white supremacist, Clayton Bigsby.

    Rodgers-Cromartie: Hit on Leftwich was clean, “no question”

    Posted by Michael David Smith on August 13, 2012



    Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie launched at Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich in last week’s preseason game and was flagged for unnecessary roughness, but Rodgers-Cromartie doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

    Rodgers-Cromartie told Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com that he doesn’t think he’ll be fined, and that there’s “no question” in his mind that his hit on Leftwich was clean. He also said he has no regrets about his hit on Leftwich.

    “Regrets? We’re playing football, man,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “The Bible said don’t live a life of regret.”

    Rodgers-Cromartie may have the Bible on his side, but he doesn’t have the rulebook on his side. It’s a foul if a player leaves both feet prior to contact to spring forward and upward into his opponent and uses any part of his helmet to initiate contact. It’s also a foul if a player initiates unnecessary contact against an opponent in the act of throwing a pass or just after throwing a pass. That’s what Rodgers-Cromartie did to Leftwich, and that’s why he’ll be fined.
