Default TJ Ward will have a target on his knee

The football gods had better be watching out for TJ Ward the next time he goes up against the Pats.

The angry Patriot fan in me hopes that when Gronk is back, he goes straight for that ****'s knee the first chance he gets and tears every **** ligament.

**** TJ Ward.

Gronk is massive, the only way Ward can get him to the ground is hit him in the thigh area. It wasn't intentional and this type of reaction shows a lack of perspective.

That's why I said the angry Pats fan in me...Lol.

Still, I was watching it live. He aimed his helmet straight at the side of his friggin knee...And blows to the side of the knee are exactly how you tear the ACL...

This kind of **** is something I would expect from the Jets or the Steelers. Not the Browns.

Default Re: TJ Ward will have a target on his knee

My bad, I thought you were genuinely hoping he'd get his knee hurt.

The location of the hit was bad but not by choice. I think he aimed reasonably but with speed and movement of the play it ended up being the side of the knee. I don't think it was done with intent or even worried about going high. Going below the waist was literally the only location he could get Gronk down by hitting.

Just went back and watched it again.

It's not like he was right next to Gronk when he made the catch. He ran up to Gronk and aimed his helmet at his knee. I'm all for playing rough and physical, but that is absolutely ridiculous.

Dude should have been ejected for the remainder of that game, and suspended for 1 game. Absolute garbage that he got away with that.

I blame it on the new rules.

They don't wanna get fined for going high so they go low.

I know Rodney Harrison has said it the past he would rather be out with a concussion than tear his acl.

Be angry at the NFL and their terrible rules. He was trying to stay within the rules and not get fined/penalized. Many careers will be shortened because of the NFL pushing for hitting low.

No he shouldn't have been ejected. Not even close. He made a tackle and someone got hurt, that's football. He want closed to Gronk, hence why he dove and was so low.

I agree.

However, going low is one issue. Making a non-local hit (i.e. arriving after the catch to make the hit) and aiming the helmet for the side of the receiver's knee is a whole different issue, and that's exactly what Ward did.

Watch the replay. He aimed his helmet at the side of Gronk's knee. What about that do you not understand?

By your reasoning, clipping, chop blocks, cutting, helmet to helmet hits, etc, should all be 100% legal...Do you think they should? If you do, at least you are being consistent, but you clearly don't care about player safety if that's the case. If you don't think they should, you are using a double standard.

That was not a tackle, that was a dirty-*** hit to an extremely weak part of the human body. There is a proper way to tackle, and the way he tackled is not it. I'm all for letting football players play football, but taking a cheap shot at the side of someone's knee with a helmet is not football.

He aimed for his leg. Yes. He didn't aim to take his knee out. It is literally a 3-6 inch difference in taking his knee out and hitting him in the leg and no issue. At how fast the game is played, no way was that hit on purpose. Stop being delusional.

Dude nobody gets thrown out of a game for aiming at the knee. The NFL doesn't eject anyone for anything very often. This happens alot get over it.

quit the whining...all i hear from Pats fans year in and year out is teams mean to your players. i love when pats fans show their true colors and say crap like this.(not baiting just sick of hearing it, my girlfriend is from boston) its football, just learn to accept the fact that Gronk is made of glass.

I agree to an extend. I do think that some could be avoided if they'd teach players to tackle properly. Too many people launch like missiles with reckless abandon and don't keep up the head when hitting. Players were going way too high and literally aiming for just the head, which needed to leave. However the NFL and college football have screwed up by calling hits to the best and whatnot a penalty. So now players are just going low, most way too low. There is a way to hit people not in the knee and not in the head and get them to the ground.

Haha I knew this was coming eventually.

Fair enough.

After going 3/6 in super bowls, and Spygate, I can see why people think we don't have a right to complain about anything.

Gronk does have injury problems, but I doubt anyone else in the league would have walked away from that hit without some type of ligament damage.
