Default Harrison gotta blame someone for loss

A little whine with your cheese Rodney

RODNEY HARRISON CALLS RICKY WILLIAMS BLOCK DIRTY
Posted by Michael David Smith on September 22, 2008, 4:12 p.m.

Pot, meet kettle: Patriots safety Rodney Harrison is criticizing Dolphins running back Ricky Williams for what Harrison says was a dirty play Sunday.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Ronnie Brown scored on a 62-yards run. Running downfield trailing the play, Williams dove at the legs of Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel. After the play, Vrabel retaliated with a shot at Williams, and they were both flagged with personal fouls.

Harrison was asked after the game if he thought it was a dirty play on Williams’ part, and he answered, “Of course it was. Of course it was. There’s no place in the game for that.”

Some would argue that there’s no place in the game for a lot of what Harrison does. In July a poll of NFL coaches revealed that they overwhelmingly believe Harrison is the dirtiest player in the league.

For Williams’ part, he said, “A lot of defensive guys don’t like it when you go at their legs. I can understand that. … If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t have done it because I can understand why he was upset. I was caught up in the play and just trying to help [Brown]. I wasn’t trying to hurt anybody.”

Williams block irks

Patriots players were not pleased with Miami running back Ricky Williams's cut block from behind on linebacker Mike Vrabel on Ronnie Brown's 62-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter.

Brown had broken free and Vrabel was trying to chase him down from behind when a hustling Williams wiped out Vrabel. An angry Vrabel retaliated by jumping on Williams and both players ended up with 15-yard personal fouls.

After the game, Patriots safety Rodney Harrison said there was "no place in the game" for plays like Williams's block. Williams called the block borderline and said he wouldn't do it again because it could have negated Brown's touchdown. However, he did express contrition for going at Vrabel's legs.

"A lot of defensive guys don't like it when you go at their legs," said Williams. "I can understand that. I don't think he should have speared me like that. They were really upset. I think also when they're losing like that frustrations get up. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't have done it because I can understand why he was upset. I was caught up in the play and just trying to help [Brown]. I wasn't trying to hurt anybody."

rodney sure was silent when his teammates were gouging out opponents eyes.

ramrodney tried this same shit last year whining about other players "cheapshots".

he just needs a warm bowl of soup to go with his "whaaaaburger and cries".

Too bad, so sad. He got his a$$ blown up, and now he wants to cry about it. Maybe he should put on a dress instead of pads. Next time, they can call the Waaahmbulance for him. What a hypocritical candyass!

Apparently Williams also agrees that the hit was unecessary. No player wants to get injured. Maybe you should see the hit before you judge what players have to say about it.
