Bunch of whiners.
Ironically - many of the same things were being said on this board after the Baker injury against Carolina.
It's football...sh!t happens and when it happens to your team you complain.
"It's how the Jets play football, it wasn't why they beat us though, so complaining won't do much. They're pricks, but that's life."
That's how the Jets play football? That's classic. Stupid jets for hitting players hard. We should be more gentle the next time we try and tackle.
Wow - just reading the Bills board . . .
JI > than Bills board [Zzzzzzz]
Happy I am a Jet fan !!
a couple that I had to comment on...
This is just funny!
This one, I thought people would think that when Landry clapped, but you can see, his head was down and hit the thighpad and he never saw what his Knee did when he hit him...he was just celebrating the play....that being said, if it was me, I'd reach out to Jackson, just to make sure it wasn't misconstrued.I'm still upset about how the Jets' RT (don't even remember his name) was bullying Mario Williams around & may have stolen his lunch money. Leave the Bills alone!
The one thing that really bothered me was seeing him look right down at Freddy and clap in jest and celebration when it was already obvious that he injured Fred. It was almost like he waited to make sure Fred was hurt, THEN was excited about the play he made. It was extremely low class IMO. I won't knock the guy for the way he plays, but to celebrate after injuring someone is just classless and scummy.
So you can't hit around the head, and now we can't hit around the legs???
Landry has a tendency to launch himself out of control to make tackles...that's why we know his name.
IMO, if a horsecollar tackle is 15 yards, diving low at a players knees by a DB isn't?
I hear the bills are unveiling a new team uniform which will include a skirt, pocket book and high heel cleats
To be fair if you read through the thread there are plenty of Bills fans on there who defend the play saying it was clean.
not much to get excited about if you're a bills fan. the qb play isn't good, their #1 draft pick didn't look good, their $100 million pass rusher didn't look good, and when they were down 4 scores their best offense was handing it off to a fast rb rather than throwing it. on opening day you generally have the fewest injuries you'll have all season, and you should be pumped to play your best football, especially against a divisional opponent. let them gripe about how the jets tackle aggressively, or how howard b**chslapped mario williams. b/c if they don't beat the chiefs this sunday they'll be considered the most disappointing team in the nfl.
The Landry hit on Jackson was dirty though
It just happened to have happened at the same instant that Jackson was firmly planted into the turf with his other leg [knee fully extended, even a bit hyper]. A moment earlier or later he just would have tumbled over to the ground and no one would be talking about any bad form on Landry's part.
BTW - this photo is AFTER LaRon already made impact with the first leg.
