    Is Football Becoming Sissy by the Minute?

    Why do people want players to get fined for making a big hit?

    It's kind of like those donkeys who wanted to suspend Jared Allen for laying a blindside hit.

    In all of my years of playing football, not one coach said to lay back when hitting another guy. Every coach I had encouraged all players to make the highlight reel and light someone up.

    I blame it all on Goodell and how he is making tackle football two-hand-touch. Players and coaches don't want these rule changes, so who really does?

    If anything, I want these guys to juice more and hit more defenseless receivers.

    Question is; Would you like more rules on big hits or less rules on big hits?

    Yes, too many rules about hits today in the NFL. Goodell is watering down the game.

    To some, he was just a boy. A boy who played football, a football player that grew to be a man. A man that took over a city, a city that he made his own, a city that stands behind him in hopes of becoming one of that cities all-time greats. To some, 2013 was a fluke. To some, he can't do it again. To some, he got lucky.

    To us though, to the Philly faithful, that QB is Nick Foles. To us, that's our QB.

    ^ I just feel as if there is a big hit, it is being flagged regardless if it is even leading with the head. It's almost like you can't hit a player at full speed in the open field.

    I remember countless plays this year where guys would be coming full speed to tackle and they made nice contact.. Only to end up with a 15 yard flag. If they want to take away the big hit, at least make it a 5 yard penalty and automatic 1st down. So sad players even have to settle for a minor penalty for hitting someone too hard.

    its not like they have a choice. They have to water down the hits. Retired players are killing themselves from brain injuries. Have you guys lived under a rock the last 3 years?

    NFL is becoming a joke. That blown roughing the passer penalty on Cliff Matthews for grazing his fingertip across Kaepernicks helmet is a travesty.

    ^ If you don't want to get in the head, then don't play football.

    If you don't want to get sandy, then don't go to the beach.

    If you don't want to get wet, then don't go swimming.

    If you don't want to get hit by a fastball, then don't play baseball.

    If you're afraid of heights, don't ride the roller coaster.

    You feel me?

    I think the big problem is not head to head helmet flags. When guys get flagged just hitting hard that's when I lose my mind.

    This has always been my opinion. If you're too scared about the long term repercussions of playing football, go get you a job at McDonald's.

    I also don't know how laying your helmet on someone's chin causes brain injury???

    Anytime a helmet has ever grazed the bottom-half of my facemask, I've never felt any pain in my head.

    Are you guys ****ing nuts? Its is not okay in any way to have people killing themselves later in life from football. If they want it or not.

    Its barbaric.
