With or without collar tackles, the NFL provides PLENTY of bone jarring hits. Did the NFL need the closeline tackle to survive? I am a big boxing fan, yet even in a sport as violent as boxing, there are rules. Football needs rules. I don't mind seeing another year of broken legs by Roy's Collar tackles. But really, Roy has the respect of everyone. Rarely does anyone come over the middle against him. Either way, Roy is gonna bring the pain...with or without the collar.
