Jerry Hughes a bit of dirty play

100 posts in this topic

Well, when a guy is provoking you all game and is attacking you for no absolute reason, especially when a play is already over, it will warrant a reaction. Tell me another time when Andre has had a nasty incident with another player. He is in no way dirty and frankly he did what any other player in his situation would have done. Innegan, on the other hand, is well-known around the league as a overly aggressive to the point of foolishness player.

You took what I said wrong. Johnson was right in every aspect to do what he did. I was rooting for him during that little tussle.

yeah exactly. like when Allen body slammed that guy earlier in the season. I have no problem with it. you have to show the defense your not going to be intitmidated or punked out there on the field. cause once you do, there will be blood in the water!

No, I honestly wasn't trying to sound aggressive, sorry if it came across that way. I did think you were making a reference to Andre possibly being dirty though lol so my little rant busted it's way out lol.

Not at all. I find nothing about his style dirty or wrong. If I'd of been him, I would of done a lot worse.

Honestly though, would you rather him be a nasty, sort of dirty, productive player or a complete non-factor?

Where does it say that not liking a cheap or dirty play means that one would rather have them be a non factor?

and if Freeney or Mathis does that OH GREAT HIT!

No, I would not.....I would feel exactly the same. Cheap shot does not change because of the number on the uniform.

I am all for an a nasty attitude and the idea our defense isn't going to lay down for anyone and them having an attitude with that said taking cheap shots at the other teams QB especially with in the division is a bad idea for two reasons.

1. The refs are going to catch it and flag you like they did tonight and you are hurting the team giving up yards and keeping drives alive by giving them a first down.

2. Sooner or later those teams defenses are going to protect their QB and start taking cheap shots at our QB.

I want our defense to be the monster that the Colts are trying to build but I want it to be a smart monster. Cheap shots on the other team's QB is not being a smart monster. It's stupid and ends up hurting you in the long wrong.

If this Colts team ever learns to play better defense and get more turnovers were going to be tough to beat.

Thats like saying that I can go out and beat the crap out of somebody and if I don't get caught it's ok to do so.

Players can be aggressive and smart about it or they can be aggressive and dumb about it. What Hughes did was aggressively DUMB!!!

Look all I am saying is to get over it, It didnt cost us any games so big deal. I like the attitude but if you dont ok fine by me.

If you ask me I think Gabbert went out on his own more then the hits. He was shaken up after the late hit and the tackle on the next play, but after the time out he came in then ran back off the field. He was holding his knee after the run on the play after the late hit, but they said he rehurt his shoulder. I think he was tired of getting hit. Henne played alot better any way.

I think Gabbert left because his team was getting there butts kicked....

I am sure you wouldn't be saying that if someone was doing the things he's doing to QB to Luck. Our fan base would label that player the dirtiest player in the game. Again you can be aggressive and feared and a monster without being dirty. Ray Lewis has made a career out of it.

Ray has had his share of dirty hits...Nice try though

Tell me a time Ray Lewis pulled a QBs legs out from under him when he was trying to get back up then back it up with video. This isn't a guy hitting a QB in the head when he is trying to make a sack that he really couldn't avoid. This is a DE doing something completely bush league and then following it up two weeks later coming back and looks to give a QB a late hit that he didn't need to give him on a shoulder that was injured going into the game and yes I know we have no way of knowing if Hughes knew about it or not.

Ok I wasnt being specific with the type of dirty hits.Remember the hit to Chad Johnson thats one. I dont hate the hit but by your comment I am lead to believe you think that was dirty. In some people eyes Hughes will never be a Freeney or Mathis even if he finishes the year with 21 sacks. I dont have to put videos on here to prove Lewis had some dirty hits along with other players just go to youtube. Dirty is dirty no matter what you call it.

This HAS nothing to do about sacks or Hughes being Freeney for crying out loud. Pulling a QBs legs out from under him when he's trying to get up is flat out dirty and has NO place in the game. Follow that up with a very questionable late hit two weeks later that could have easily been avoided into a shoulder that was already injured coming into the game and yes that questionable. If it was the last one alone I think most people would just look the other way but the fact he had the stunt with Hassekbeck two weeks before that starts to establish a pattern of behavior that's not good. Does it mean Hughes is a dirty player? No the jury is clearly still out on it which is why I made the title of this thread a bit of dirty play and didn't call him a dirty player.

You completely missed my point about Lewis. Lewis isn't respected for that hit on Johnson. Lewis is respected because of how he plays the game which for the most part has been clean. The Johnson play was a stupid play ALL players have that at some point and if these two plays turn out to be that for Hughes great. Even that at least came some what during a play as opposed to well after the play is over and tripping a dude just trying to stand up. Again it doesn't make the Lewis hit clean but it's at least a little more understandable than just pulling someone's legs out from under them. Either way the point is that you don't have to have dirty hits to be feared in this league and you don't have to do bush league stuff like Hughes did especially on the Hasselbeck play to be feared and that has nothing to do with respect and being feared and has everything to do with being bush league which will frankly make people lose respect for you in this league if you do it over and over.

What will make Hughes be feared and respected in this league is if he keeps playing like has been playing this season from the snap of the ball to the end of the play. He doesn't need this cheap shot stuff and if he keeps doing it people are just going to label him a dirty player and a cheap shot artist and those players are most defiantly not feared or respected.

Well I guess just pulling the feet out from under a player is really dirty. Dang I hope that never happens again. Look there are all types of cheap shots in the NFL Im not defending him at all I just dont think it was severe enought to start a thread about and for the late hit it happens you dont know if it was intentional or not. If you dont like it ok thats fine. Who cares if another player or team respects us or not you dont have to respect a team or player to get jacked up. And for labels they can label all they want.

I care. I do not want dirty players on our team and I sincerely hope this is not something that is going to be allowed. Like GoColts8818 I am not ready to label this dirty as of yet but I did notice the play and I will be watching. Play the game right. There is no reason for dirty shots and I don't care how many other teams allow it. The Colts have not and I certainly hope it stays that way.

I would agree with you about the late hit that it happens. Like I said before I think people would side with that if for the fact it didn't come two weeks AFTER the Hasselbeck play. That starts to establish a pattern and if you watch the play it become clear this wasn't some late shot that he really couldn't pull up on and was just a second late. It was a good two to three seconds after the pass was gone and a good two or three extra steps and he leans into hm to hit him. He had to go out of his way to do it and could have avoided it all together had he wanted too. Add into that Gabbert had a known injury in that shoulder going into the game and it just makes you step back and go hmmm. Again, like I said does it mean Hughes is a dirty player? No but there is a pattern here that does need to be watched.

Also I don't think anyone is saying what he did to Hasselbeck is the worst thing to ever happen in football. Clearly players have much worse things done to them on a weekly basis. That's not the point. The point was it was completely bush league and completely not needed regardless of how violent it was. Again how do you think most people would react if a Pats player did that to Luck this weekend? My guess is that would lose their minds over it.

Playing dirty has nothing to do with getting jacked up. There have been several examples of players in this league who can do that without having to get dirty. That's most peoples point the dirty play is simply not needed and doesn't help the team and frankly it can hurt your team with the flags like Hughes got on Thursday. It's stupid and there is no reason to do it.

    • Honestly,   I don't think the owners saw this coming.....   Hard for me to say one way or the other if the players did.....      Dunno.....  
    • Colts should be 2-2 after Sunday. 28-17 Colts. If they lose, Pagano should be fired on the spot and Grigson should join him.      
    • Great character guy, no question, full of Colts traits. I wish it would translate to his production on the field. I might be mistaken but with all the decade long complaints on how the Colts defense is soft by default... don't you think that our team would need at least a few guys who are not so nice in private but are cruel beasts on the field?
    • "So, who's the guy?...This is his problem too. You understand that right?...He's not the one who's pregnant. He'd be crapping his pants if he were. He'd find the money if he thought he was gonna swell up like a watermelon...Let's go see him."   "Why didn't you use a condom [Cam]? Or for humanity's sake get a vasectomy? Give us half the money. [Strikes Cam between his legs hard with a hockey stick]. You know, I liked your boyfriend. He's very special. Very charismatic."   "You know, you have a real anger problem. No, no, I don't. I have an caboose hole problem. When people are caboose holes to my granddaughter, I get angry."   "Hi sweetheart, you know there's a world out there that doesn't need to be filled with hate & narrow mindedness. [Pow, right in the kisser. A little girl punches Grandma Elle right in the eye].    I just saw a 2015 drama called "Grandma" about a young 18 yr old woman named Sage [Julia Garner] & her 70 something grandmother named Elle Reid [Lily Tomlin] who needs a huge favor. Sage desperately needs $630 as soon as possible. What for you ask? A car payment? A student loan payment? A gambling debt? Well, let's just say a medical procedure is required. Before I go any further, I must say this. This 1 hour & 19 minute feature film directed by Paul Weitz deals with the issue of terminating a pregnancy as a central theme in this flick.   Relax, I am not here to make any moral declarations about the right to an abortion in this country or speak for or against a woman's decision to bring a child into this world or not. All my audience needs to know is that this storyline revolves around a scared young woman & how her grandmother & mother help Sage raise the funds for the procedure, remind her that she's not going thru this ordeal alone, & come together during this crisis as a family making their bond of love stronger than ever.    Now, don't get it twisted. This movie isn't some cheesy Hallmark channel cinematic exercise in foolish sentimentality okay. As a matter of fact, the reason I like the picture is because the main characters are so messed up & dysfunctional overall. Where do I begin? Well, for starters, Elle is a PH.D. poetry professor living in California who just broke up with her girlfriend Olivia [Judy Greer] who is half her age & has crimson red hair. She actually loves Olivia but she's breaking up with her because Elle is fearful that she is developing deep feelings for her. The reason this new relationship petrifies her so much is because Elle just lost Violent, her romantic partner from cancer over a yr ago & she didn't ever expect to feel that way ever again so Elle is down on her luck & a little depressed right now.    Sage, her only grandchild with curly blond hair, knows on her front door & begs her for a hefty sum of cash in order to get an abortion at a nearby clinic at the end of business that very day. 1 major problem though: Grandma cut up all her credit cards & turned them into a decorative wind chime outside her front door. Wonderful just wonderful. What's there next move? They drive over to her boyfriend's place for a contribution for the procedure. Cam acts like a colossal jerk acting the the child might not be his & then grandma goes into protective bear mode, hits the fool in the family jewels, & takes $50 bucks & some pot from this guy. LOL! My kinda of grandma. Sweet!    Eventually, they go to a coffee shop & later a tattoo parlor where a black woman with a nose ring named Deathy [Laverne Cox] gives Elle an O ink job on her right shoulder & $60 dollars to help Sage out. Next, grandma tries to sell some 1st edition books from her home library at a local cafe. However, she ticks off the owner by telling her that she's a gorilla because she's so darn cheap & treats her employees like indentured servants. Yep, grandma's a real charmer who knows how to make friends & influence people that's for sure. LOL!    Grandma is running out of options now. She decides to drop by Karl's [Sam Elliot] place for $500 dollars. Did I mention that Karl was an old flame of Elle's who never got over the fact that she rejected her marriage proposal to her over 3 decades ago & that she abandoned him on his boat in the middle of the night? Details; details. Sam Elliot has 1 of the coolest deep voices ever heard on the silver screen BTW. He agrees to fork over the dough for 1 last passionate kiss from Elle. But, once he hears from Sage want the $500 is really for, he rejects the offer due to religious reasons.    Only 1 thing left to do: Visit the dragon lady Sage's mother Judy [Marcia Gay Harden] at work. Judy is stern & very demanding & she's not thrilled about the news that her baby is knocked up by the 'rodent' as she calls him. We see that Judy wears the pants in this family & that even King Kong & Godzilla would cower in her presence & run away whimpering like a wounded puppy. After some yelling, Judy gives her daughter the remaining funds for the procedure. Once at the clinic, a ProLife parent & her daughter harass Sage about committing murder. Grandma turns around imploring the little girl to be more understanding & boom the little menace hit Elle in the face. It's hilarious because for once in grandma's life she tried to be kind to a stranger & then she gets knocked on the pavement pretty good. I roared with laughter. The brief scene is an absolute riot because we don't expect that to happen at all.    The cool thing about this picture is that Judy shows up at the clinic to support her daughter & that this whole incident brings Sage, Grandma, & Judy much closer as a bullheaded family prompting Elle to tell Olivia she loved her & to reconnect as a same sex couple. I guess I just like Grandma Elle because she's very protective of her family especially Sage & if you hurt her in any way, she's gonna bleep you up & come down on you like a ton of bricks. There's actually a tenderness to this film just beneath the surface that is readily apparent in it's candid honesty & steadfast loyalty particularly at the clinic & just outside of it after the procedure is over. It just feels true, genuine, & authentic. Plus, Lily Tomlin's character is an ally we all wish we had in our corner 24/7.    Let's roll with a B+ here because at the end of the day when the crap hits the fan in this crazy world we all want a grandma who is always there for us no matter what.                   
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
