All reports are saying Willis McGahee will be ok which we are all thankful for.
But my god was that not one of the most vicious hits you have ever seen? I always tell people that on a truly big hit you should cringe before you see the replay. It hurt me when Ryan Clark hit McGahee (I am sure it hurt McGahee more). That game was not for the weak at hurt. I hear a lot of people say that they think they could play professional football. Put some pads on and play against one of these defenses and it would have you running back to your minimum wage job at the local McDonald's.
The million dollar question from Steelers' fans to me.
To answer your question, no it wasn't. After reviewing the hit several times Clark takes McGahee straight on (not a blindside cheap shot from 10 yards away from the play a la Hines Ward) and turns to hit him with his shoulder when McGahee drops his head (a big no-no for you young running backs out there) and that is what causes the collision. Clean hit by Clark. I am sure Clark is going to have a headache for a couple of days as well.
Did I mention?
