Preseason football is like the make out session before sex. Guys may pretend to enjoy it, but all we're thinking is "When does the real action start?"

This. It's not a real game. Manning was being a biatch, too. There was no other way that hit could have been made. Welker put his head down like a dumbass.

And still called "Ever calm, poised and professional", rather than "thug". I wonder why.

Same reason Andrew Luck has almost identical combine stats to Cam Newton, yet Andy is "intellectual, classic passer" and Cam is "phenominal athlete and physical freak"

Swearinger, or whatever his name is, is head-hunting and Manning doesn't like it. He should be fined or suspended for deliberately trying to take players out.

Because he yelled at another player, rather than terrifying an impressionable young reporter with angry, loud words.

Welker ducked right into the hit.  Swearinger went low with the shoulder to hit Welker at chest level and Welker dropped into the shoulder.  I get Manning wanting to protect his receiver, but it was a bad call by the ref.  Evidently DJ was talking trash all week in the joint team workouts and the hit was the last straw for Manning.  Might be time for Wes to walk away vs. end up forgetting how to tie his shoes in a couple years.

I have a simple fix: have the player who puts out another player miss as many games as the injured party. Without pay.

I was hoping for an actual video of the play.

Dumbass or not, looking at the play at real-time speed, how else was he supposed to make that tackle?

As I said in the other thread, I think this rule is stupid as hell... BUT... if Swearinger opens his arms and tries to wrap up instead of going for a knock-out "hockey check" style hit, He still makes the tackle, Welker still gets a concussion, and there's no penalty (or potential fine).  THe NFL has been pretty clear that they want to stop these type of hits from safties and linebackers on crossing routes.  Heads-up, wrap-up.

/I like the big hits myself, but the solution is fairly simple.  Tackle the guy instead of trying to knock him senseless

"...I just can't get enough!", the reporter expounded, even as he slobbered on Manning's knob. "He's so feisty!"
