In the post-bounty NFL, coaches and players arenít supposed to talk about the incentive that exists even in the absence of envelopes full of cash.

Bills defensive lineman Mario Williams violated that fairly new etiquette point in explaining the philosophy of defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, via Tim Graham of the Buffalo News:  ďHe usually says ĎKill Ďem or hurt Ďem.í  Thatís what I always hear.Ē

It proves our point that, even without bounties, players and coaches have every reason to want to knock other players out of games.

Slow news month. That's why the Fig man and No Saint won't stop whining about the Skin's name in the other thread!

I am confident that each player will continue to respect the need to protect the saftey of all competitors on the field.

i am thinking that this is a mindset of aggressiveness more than an actual intent to injure. but, i've been wrong before.

Wanting to hurt/knock out players is no secret.  The only thing that's "dirty" is paying people extra to do it.  Not that they don't already get paid well to do it.

ignoring the story would be best. PFT , which is a great site, sometimes over-reaches, non-story

It's about time this defense acts nasty!!!  Show me a defense that other teams don't want to face and we'll see a playoff team here in Buffalo again.

That was Marios attempt at humor. He tried a couple times .The one about the doritos was funny . This one was not and i bet he is in Coach Mikes office getting a talking to.

I'm more concerned about where Patrick sleeps and how he gets under the rock and why that doesn't suffocate him.

What about Sandy and how she got a life-sustaining dome down to the ocean floor?

It's entirely possible to play clean and hit to to inflict pain at the same time. I don't see the big deal. The problem comes, imo, when players are head hunting, or shooting for the knees, or taking other cheap shots.

I can't help but think of this movie every time I hear about two topics: players trying to hurt other players and the mental state of active/former players

I don't believe there are very many DCs who tell the team to go out and "defeat them with grace."
