Former Steelers LB Greg Lloyd Sounds Off On Direction of Offensive NFL


Many Steelers fans have been waiting for former LB Greg Lloyd to weigh in on the NFL's current direction of offensive emphasis and general "safety" initiatives.

The wait is over.

Lloyd, speaking to WXIX-TV in Cincinnati while at Bengals coach Marvin Lewis's charity golf tournament (Lewis was Lloyd's position coach in Pittsburgh), minced no words over the matter, which shouldn't be a surprise to anyone who remembers Lloyd from his "I Wasn't Hired For My Disposition" t-shirts.

He played up the recent scoring increases the NFL has seen in comments about the state of the league.

I don't want to see a game where the damn score is 75 to one or 75 to two, all this passing and passing. I want to see somebody hit a quarterback, ... that is what people come to see. And at the end of the day if he gets hurt, so be it.

It's unclear whether NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will seek to fine Lloyd for his comments, but no doubt, someone's going to try to reach out to Lloyd, typically media-reclusive, to ask him about bounties. No mention of that question is in the report.

What is, though, is Lloyd's typical bravado and wit, calling out Goodell for what he feels is a watering down of the game he played at a high level throughout the 1990s, as well as a lack of effort, in his eyes, to have protected players during his time.

This is not PBS, it's not the public channel that you go watch. It's the National Football League, it's a violent freaking game. The point of it is that if the NFL and the league would get behind and start taking care of their older players and taking care of guys, they wouldn't have these issues. As opposed to saying, 'Hey, go out there, do it hard, then bang we're done with you.'

James Harrison Sounds Off About Bountygate on Twitter

Often fined and targeted Steelers linebacker James Harrison has a little bit of a chip on his shoulder when talking about the New Orleans Saints “bounty system” coming to light. Harrison has racked up over $ 100,000 in fines the last two seasons, as well as faced a game suspension, all for questionable dirty or illegal hits to opposing players.

However, Harrison and teammate, safety Ryan Clark, both have come out and said the Steelers have never had a bounty system in place, although on other teams Clark said he’s seen rewards on defense for interceptions, fumbles forced, and even big hits. But never to the extent of purposely injuring a targeted opposing player.

Yesterday on Twitter, Harrison sounded off, saying that if he were accused of participating in a bounty system, he would already be out of the NFL. I am hard pressed not to agree with him, as Roger Goodell has made Harrison the poster boyfor his emphasis on player safety. Harrison tweeted:

“I’ll just say this, if that was me I would have been kicked out of the NFL!!!”
[tweet https://twitter.com/jharrison9292/status/176367911752052736]

I can only imagine what Harrison’s reaction will be if the league doesn’t impose some harsh punishments on everybody involved with Bountygate, from Saints owner Mickey Loomis on down.
