Willis McGahee Gets "Jacked Up" By Ryan Clark...Clean or Dirty??? - Robert Littal Presents The Infamous BlackSportsOnline

Willis McGahee Gets "Jacked Up" By Ryan Clark...Clean or Dirty???

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.

LITTAL WAS IT A DIRTY HIT?

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?

THAT WAS A CRAZY VICIOUS HIT!!!

He jacked himself up while he was at it.

We are not watching the superbowl.

Robert,
You really should get someone to proof read your stuff before you submit it. It's hard to take an article seriously when it is crippled by numerous errors.

good to know you aren't a jackass all the time

Sometimes in a rush to get you the information ASAP there are a few grammatical errors that get cleaned up as we are going along, but the most important thing is to get the info up ASAP especially when I have 50 emails asking me what I think about the hit. The editor has made some changes to the original article.

I point to hits like these to remind people who complain about how much money pro football players make just for "playing a stupid game". Football is the most physically damaging sport in the world. So these guys deserve to get paid millions for what they are putting their bodies through. Poor McGahee probably lost about 2 years off his life because of that hit.

if clark hadn't already been fined $7,500 this season for a helmet to helmet hit on matt jones from the jags I might believe the homers saying it wasn't an intentional dirty hit. But he has so I don't.

Only a Steelers fan would say that this is a truly clean hit. Since McGahee is wearing that eye guard, now they resort to try to take his entire head off! Clark should be fined and not allowed to play in the SuperBowl.

Clean hit. This isn't soccer or girls field hockey. McGahee dropped his head and tried to get lower than Clark. Big mistake. Clark was coming up into him, and the result was one of the craziest hits I have ever seen. In a game that featured some of the hardest hitting you will ever see anywhere, this one took the cake. What a great game that was.

How come you called the hit by Eric Smith on Anquan Boldin dirty but don't find this one to be dirty?

Mike, I stated Eric Smith hit on Boldin to be illegal per the rules. Not dirty and I lobby for him not to be suspended

proofread is ONE WORD.

"Robert,

What great difference did it make, error-wise? Coward couldnt even leave his name. Typical...

It WAS a vicious hit, reinforces why some receivers will not take a pass across the middle, like T.O.(Too Often... seen whining). POW!!

I thought playing Willie and the Poor Boys was pretty tacky while Willis was lying on the turf in a puddle. Now I hear it's a "show of support." I thought silence would have been a stronger show of support and concern.

When I saw Willis go down yesterday, I thought about the National Championship Game against Ohio State University when he played at the U. I thought it was a clean hit. Willis has alot of heart. He will get better and come back stronger for it.

As an ex running back who played with the philosophy “why waste time going around someone when it’s easier and quicker to go through them.” I can say the main mistake in this incident was Willis McGahee’s! To clarify, after catching the ball he lowered just his head to take on Ryan Clark and not his shoulders, keeping his eyes on Ryan Clark! By placing his chin on his chest just prior to the impact he risked serious injury to himself, luckily his head is snapped back in the contact.

When you lower your shoulders, keeping your eyes on your opponent you not only lower your centre of gravity but improve your angle of attack and with your eyes locked on your opponent you align your spine and take the movement out of the neck, bracing the head for impact. You cannot suffer the massive ‘whipping’ effect Willis Mcgahee’s head was put through! And he was lucky that the force of the impact whipped his head up and back. It could easily have pushed and locked his chin into his chest. If this happened, with his body mass going at speed one way and Ryan Clark’s going at speed the other way, the impact could have snapped his neck like a twig.

Any aspiring players take note! “NEVER, EVER TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE OPPONENT YOUR ABOUT TO HIT” Keep your eyes on them when you lower your shoulders and make the hit with the face cage or front of the helmet and definitely not the top of your helmet. It’s your only neck so don’t risk it!

It was definitely a fair hit though not a good tackle; indeed I wouldn’t call it a tackle at all. If Willis McGahee had set himself up correctly and with Ryan Clark not wrapping him up in the hit he could have been in a foot race towards the endzone as no one was behind Ryan Clark on the play though two Steelers were trying to run him down from behind!

Regards,

Ken.

Wow! Willis McGahee has had some very bad injuries starting with collage days when it looked like he lost his leg, how much can one man take.

Apparently there is no rule for helmet to helmet hits on anybody except the QB and defenseless WRs. Technically the hit was legal. But if a hit can be legal but dirty, this is a perfect example of it.

Could "Worthlessburger" or anyone else please explain what was so "dirty" with this hit?

Ryan Clark didn't 'blindside' or 'clip' Willis McGahee! He didn't spike him into the ground or cheap shot him when he was already on the ground! He took him on, face to face and in actual fact lead with his right shoulder in what was more like a block than a tackle.

There seems to be a band wagon of misguided people trying to vilify Ryan Clark just because Willis McGahee was stretchered off the field. He was hurt in a fair hit! Nothing more, nothing less and something that happens in this game on a daily basis.

Also it has to be said that very few injuries are inflicted by dirty play of any kind. Most occur as a result of just playing the game though a significant number of these are because the victim of the injury did doing something wrong themselves in the first place! Like Willis McGahee dropping his head, placing his chin on his chest and hitting Ryan Clark with the top of his helmet.

Regards,

Ken.

Once a head hunter, always a head hunter. If the NFL would fine the coach a bunch of money for allowing this kind of play and toss the player for a few games, it would make this kind of play rare.
