Bad Enough We Got Rolled, But We've Got A Dirty Cheap Shot Artist On Our Lousy Defense
Allowing a new Aaron Rodgers record for single game passing yards. Check.
Allowing the pack to snap a 44-game streak of sub-100 yard rushers. Check.
And getting shut out in the first half on offense against another opponent whose defense was not exactly know for being a "shut down" unit. Check.
Oh, and we have a cheap shot artist on staff. Though maybe not for long.
Look, I too am frustrated by the NFL's inconsistent and often absurd attempts to legislate violence out of the game by way of Monday morning fines from the league office.
But there's no need for Brandon Meriweather in the NFL. None.
In case you forgot, Meriweather's history is chock full of these types of hits.
He's basically Chuck Cecil, with dreadlocks.
The league will no doubt have their say this week in the form of his game check. The concussion protocol may keep him out a few weeks anyway. But worst of all, is that the defense sucks with him, or without him.
And no matter what is going with RG3 and the apparent aversion to letting him/asking him to run, none of that matters if they can't stop people.
