Default Del Rio shows lack of class

Jack Del Rio has obviously allowed the frustration of coaching one of the most unpredictable teams of 2006 to boil over into making one of the least classy comments of the year.

Quote:
They should’ve speared him then,” Del Rio said of a Brady head-first dive early in Sunday’s game, when Jaguars defenders backed off Brady because they thought he was going to slide feet-first. “You go face-first and you’re a runner,” Del Rio added.

Brady went head-first in capping a seven-yard run around left end midway through the fourth quarter. Ingram delivered a massive shot to the back of Brady’s head and shoulders, leaving the star quarterback writhing in pain on the ground and having to be helped off the field.
Or maybe the HC of the 'tough guy' Jags needs the rules explaining to him?

Quote:
As for spearing, it is covered in the NFL rule book under Rule 12, Section 2, Article 8(g). The rule reads as follows: "Using any part of a player’s helmet (including the top/crown and forehead/“hairline” parts) or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily; although such violent or unnecessary use of the helmet and facemask is impermissible against any opponent, game officials will give special attention in administering this rule to protecting those players who are in virtually defenseless postures
Poor show, Del Rio - hopefully the Football Gods will punish you accordingly.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I think if the jags lose this week he could and should be out of a job.

Im just hoping he gets hit with a big fine.

How are the players expected to toe the line if their HC's are advocating illegal hits to unprotected players?

You have to remeber this is a former linebacker. Do you think he would make similar comments if he was a qb

I think as a HC you have to put that to one side - the spearing is potentially alot more dangerous to the guy doing the hitting - broken necks, paralysis etc are all possibilities when you hit with the top of the helmet like Ingram did.

The guy who made the hit is a rookie who probably doesnt know much better, I hope Del Rio doesnt regret making comments like that for more serious reasons.

oh please. i suggest watching inside the nfl for some nice m. jones drew clips and comments of the cheap shots he suffered from last week. that t. bruschi sure is a classy guy . #25 on the pats is another with "class".

im sure after del rio reviewed the tape he was pretty ticked off and just figured turnabout shouldve been fair play. personally i wouldnt mind at all it the pats tasted some of their own medicine. im thinking denver may be watching the same tape to prepare for their trip to foxboro. i wonder if chop blocks will utilized?

Cheap shots on Drew-Jones?

Can't say i've heard anything about this before now - care to elaborate?

Maybe you need to take another look at the rules - I presume you've seen the actual clip of Brady being hit in the back helmet first?

Who would have expected an anti-Patriots rant from Tony Hipchest...not me!

Jack Del Rio is a F$g and I couldn't stand him as a player also. Reading that classless comment by that guy makes me have less respect for that tool.

I grew up in a viking house. I used to have to watch this guy play all the time when he played for the vikings. He was a softy and I remeber edgar bennett running over him and barry sanders blowing by him.
