Was the Jarvis Landry hit on Aaron Williams dirty?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Im watching Hard Knocks Season 13 episode 1 where Landry is crying about his players being soft and my blood got boiling. F this guy!

 

Its so bad that i didnt feel much after watching the youtube video of his highschool sweetheart dying. Maybe he carries anger towards God on the field over that or something.

I'm conflicted on it.  I appreciate his passion.  I would probably defend one of my players if he was the aggressor.  Therefore, maybe I'm leaning toward "it's part of the game".

Yes, clearly dirty and illegal.  He was fined for the hit.  Thus, it was deemed dirty.

It was dirty as hell.  Could have killed/paralyzed the man.  Wasn’t in any way necessary to make the block.

I try to look from the outside in on this stuff. 

If the roles reversed and it was a bills player making that hit Landry did I would still 100% call it dirty and probably not like said player as much. Robert woods was and is one of my favorite players to watch closely but if he made that same kind of hit I’d lose respect for him. Being tough and doing dirty work is much different than just playing dirty. 

Same for the gronk hit on white

Yes, dirty and illegal.

 

There are plenty of ways to have clean, legal, and relatively safe BIG HITS. The guys who have to use the dirty methods are just cheap and lazy.

I had to go back and watch it.   It was brutal, but a bit conflicted on how dirty it was.  Aaron had his eyes on the ball carrier and didnt look at Jarvis until a second before he got smacked.    Jarvis certainly wasn't using any sort of blocking technique so in that sense it really isnt part of the game because he was hitting more than he was blocking but a lot of chip blocks on a defender coming backside look a lot like that, just not in the speed of the open field.

 

In comparison the Gronk elbow drop was after a play, out of bounds and a wrestling move.

Dirty af. I hate Landry. Not only did he end A. Williams' career, but he also pulled some similar crap on Taron Johnson. :censored: that guy.

It was dirty and a complete blindside hit that wasn't required.  The issue I've always had about the hit on Aaron that ended his career was the candyass response by his teammates.

Yes it was dirty.  Plays like this one plus concussion issues in general forced the NFL to change the rules.  Now anytime there's a loud collision on the field I expect a penalty.

I agree.  Who was it that was standing right next to Landry after the play and just ran away?  Jerry Hughes?

Doesnt look like Hughes was nearby or saw what happened since he was on the opposite side. Not sure many players saw much of it since their eyes were all in the backfield.

I dont fault any of the Bills for not immediately fighting on this one.

 

The Gronk hit on Tre, however, where Preston Brown stood by and whined like a baby instead of laying out Gronk... still gets me fired up.
