Default Willie Colon- Cheapshot artist?

i havent reviewed it but bob papa and shannon sharpe were disgusted by a colon play they said had no place in football, and was a blatant attempt to seriously injure somebody.

i guess it was the final play of the game, robert mathis(?) was engaged, and willie purposefully went at his knee with intent to hurt him. (seen at the bottom of the tv screen). they said they thought he would be done for the year and that colon would definitely be fined.

anyone else notice this?

hmm, I didnt notice that, I was worried about the clock, and Ben. I dont think it was intentional, probably just making sure he didnt get to Ben on the play.

I too listen to Sirius NFL radio religiously (currently waiting for Movin the Chains) and Bob was pretty upset over play this morning.

Its probably a highlight that will be shown on ESPN today since it was a Hail Mary play. They said to pay attention to Mathis and you will see Willie dive at his knees.

If this is in fact true, and I was Tomlin, I would bench Colon. I played on the line and those antics are total BS!

I just went to NFL.com to watch the highlights and after watching it about 10x, I believe he launched himself at Mathis' knees...

he absolutely did NOT launch himself! you can clearly see that he was beat on the play and as he spun around he lost his footing and his weight carried him over

I really hope not, I pride myself on us being a clean team and get IRATE when we get called/fined for "cheap shots" that never happened.

Geez...I don't know. It certainly doesn't look good. Judge for yourself:
