Finally! Someone gave Burfict a taste of his own medicine. For those who don't know, Vontaze Burfict is regarded as possibly the dirtiest player in the league. He has a long history of dirty hits.
I am now a Juju Smith Schuster fan.
Thats a really bad version of someone filming his TV with a smartphone..
at least link a good video of it
To really understand that you have to understand the rivalry that is getting too hot.
Burfict is an extremely dirty/mouthy player.
He ended Bell's season 2 years in a row..knee injuries...(steelers running back)
He give Brown a really violent head injury and said brown was faking it..
did I mention hes an extremely dirty player..
Usually I would say Juju was in the wrong.. but with burfict.. screw that guy..
The hit was plenty legal IMO.. burfict isnt a quarterback..
The bad part was the taunting.. and that should have drawn a fine.. but no suspension..
He got the same punishment that Gronk got for his WWE style after the whistle flying elbow drop on a facedown defenseless cornerback.. which IMO is too harsh for Juju's actions.
I think its more of a message/statement to both teams that this needs to calm down.
Its not helped by the fact that supposely burfict jumped off the gurney and wanted to come back in the game immediately... I bet he was more embarrassed than injured that a Wide Receiver blocked him like that
This is not the football I grew up liking. The cheap shots, fighting, rediculous penalty flags that aren't thrown equally throughout the league, and most of all the silly group celebrations after a touchdown that seems to be the norm now. It's borderline unwatchable to me. And, Burfict is a nasty monster and got some payback, even if it was a cheap shot.
Yeah that was coming and well deserved.
Go back in the day here... Remember when Steve Largent got hit really hard by Mike Harden by the Denver Broncos... Then several weeks later Mike Harden intercepted a pass and Steve Largent laid him out
Pay back is a you know what... Well earned there too.
