    If that dirty POS Harrison lowers his helmet into Rodgers' head then I hope on the next play Clifton stands him up while Johnson takes out his knees. It would be a long time coming for that *******.

    Why don't you take this crap over to that SteelerNation or whatever the hell that board was called. It seems you fit right in with their intelligence level.

    after seeing Peppers rock Rodgers, and then the offense stall seemingly right after (probably more like before it even happened)

    would you be at all surprised if they tried to do something similar? i sure wouldn't be

    I think the offense Packers stalled against Chicago due to the cold and windy weather that day. But the Steelers probably will try a cheap shot. The Steelers have been fined for illegal hits more than any other team this year.
    In prior years they took out Wes Welker and injured him on an illegal hit. The Steelers players are on the Sports Illustrated dirtiest player list, voted by other NFL players.

    I think the Packers might just blow the Steelers, out on this fast track field in Dallas. I hope and pray the game is not changed by a cheap shot or illegal hit, and I hope nobody is injured.

    Maybe in the Super Bowl the NFL should enforce immediate on the spot suspensions if someone injures another player on a cheap shot. A fine or a suspension for a regular season game next season seems an inadequate penalty

    At least that dirty f'er Hines Ward doesn't play on defense. He's cheaper than the whole lot of them. Spare me the "plays to the whistle" stuff too. Youtube if full of his cheap helmet-helmet hits that guys like Ed Reed and LaRon Landry are constantly fined for.

    It is just absolutely amazing how clean, hard hitting football one year, is all of a sudden dirty, cheap shot football the next.

    Sadly, Good-deal has had way too much of an effect on this league already.

    I gotta agree with Jack Lambert, it really is time to put skirts on the QB's.

    Google "Ray Nitschke videos". He knew how to hit well enough to win 5 Championships.

    Just like the Bears, the only way the Steelers can win is by cheap shotting Rodgers.

    Its pathetic really.

    First of all......define cheap shot nowadays.

    Don't kid yourselves. The NFL loves hard hits. They even had a best hits video out until the weekend when Meriweather, Harrison and so on delivered some nasty shots that resulted in concussions. Then everyone was up in arms and they pulled the video.

    There are obviously some tactics that are without a doubt cheap. But it seems as though ever since that weekend, any hit that appears too violent in nature, or results in the player on the receiving end of said hit being hurt, even if it's legal, is scrutinized. Worse is the fact that some of the hits draw penalites for no other reason outside of the fact that they "appeared" too violent.

    I don't foresee any "cheap shots". The players know full well the NFL wants no part of something of that nature tarnishing their big show.

    It isn't the 70's when Jack Tatum blew up Sammy White and made him cry for his mommy.

    My definition for cheap shots is the same it's always been. Anything after the whistle is cheap. Anything intentional out-of-bounds is cheap. Crack blocks, taking out the knees, intentional helmet to helmet, facemasks.
    Basically it's anything that shows "intent to injure".
    Steeler fans like tough, physical ball. We like it when players lay the wood, get blow'd up, and trucked. We even congratulate other teams when they lay a particularly good hit on one of our guys.
    But we don't like seeing people leave the field on stretchers. No grudge when it happens accidentally, but we hate dirty play.

    I predict a Harrison cheap shot. But Clifton will keep him in check most of the time.

    I agree.
    If the Steelers bite, I hope the Packers bite 'em back.
    Hopefully they won't have to do that and can contain Hanus one (Harrison) and the other Steelers dirty players.
    I totally agree with your post 100%
    And I think the NFL is being too lenient on dirty plays.
    They need to be more strict to prevent.
    Either more expensive fines (Like 1/4 - 1/2 of the paycheck) immediate ejections and suspensions or even firing.
    Football is one of the few places where assault is legal. But there has to be limits on that assault. And there has to be serious consequences when it goes too far.
    I'd be OK with players getting fired on the spot.

    These quotes are worth a repeat.

    Its as if no one even read this post Slash.. good stuff as usual. I can tell you guys as a Steeler fans we DO NOT condone dirty hits nor applaud them. Never have, never will. Case in point is Chris Kemo our LG, he is notorious for being a hot head and hitting guys off the pile after the whistle. Every time this happens our game day thread explodes with anger at him for being a dumbass and being dirty. It truly pisses us off to see that kind of play from one of "our" guys.

    Will the Packers see some hard hitting football? Yes
    Will the Packers see dirty hits, ie shots after the whistle, out of bounds, at the knee's? No
    Will there be some questionable calls on both sides of the ball? Absolutely, there always is.

    Did you see a "leg come out" like Glazer said he did? I honestly could not see it. I saw someone moving around in the paint, but that's all.

    I think MM just needs to let his guys know, especially the O-linemen, that these guys are probably trying to take our QB out of the game. They also need to realize that he comes out, we lose. Do what you do. Block. Don't let them have the chance to lay one on Rodgers.

    Ray Nitschke would be considered a cheap shot artist by todays standards. He would have to change his style of play completely. I doubt Ray or Jack would be big enough by todays standards, to play middle line backer.

    You wanna see dirty hits. Watch the Packers vs Cowboys in the 95 NFCCG. One of our linemen (sorry don't remember name/position) was taken out of the game by a Dallas player after the whistle with a shot on his knee. Then later they try it again but amazing the GB player moved just at the right time to avoid it unbeknowst to him. He sees what was tried, and kicks the cowboy player in the side. GB = 15 yard Personal Foul. Ugh...

    Still pisses me off to this day. Well, that and Farve choking in the 4th.
