    So the giants complain everytime roy williams tackles someone. Well they neve complained about burress tackle on glenn that actually injured him and he wasnt fined. So I put a quick video together showing the two.

    You tell me, the difference. Also, the giants and their fans and the media who complain about roy all the time need to remember this play.

    They're similar, but Burress' tackle is even worse/more dangerous.

    Roy went for the legs with one hand. He avoided falling on Tiki's legs when he did that.

    Burress went straight for the horse collar, and his body fell on Glenn's legs, injuring him.

    Roy got fined on reputation alone.

    Just to show how much they whine about this, watch this:

    www.bnbathletics.com/cowboysvids/nyg05-g2-roywilliams-barbertackle.avi

    Notice that on that play the rule was if you get inside the PADS and the jersey was not included in the 05 season.

    Watch the ENTIRE Giants sideline go CRAZY on that play.... especially Coughlin. You'll notice that they spent A LONG time screaming at the official about that play.... so long in fact that they wasted a timeout because their coaches were more worried about the "penalty" and didn't get the play in before the play clock ran out.

    Our rivals spend a lot of time bashing Roy Williams because of the horse collar... but its just because that's pretty much the ONLY thing you can bash him about.

    I can't wait to see Burress splattered all over the field by Roy tomorrow!

    Theebs you the man...Roy has deff changed the way he used to do the horse collar, instead of just using his weight to bring them down, he grabs their ankles. very smart man.

    That's great. You should send it to the NFL and ask them what they think about it.

    I'm pretty certain that Roy wasn't fined for the tackle in the video, but for the tackle he made with 12:56 left in the fourth quarter -- a 2-yard sweep by Barber. Roy was coming across the line and grabbed Barber's collar and pulled him backward. He wasn't coming from behind Barber (and didn't fall on his legs, like Burress did), but by definition, it was a horse-collar. It just looked different from a normal horse-collar because of the angle Roy took to get to Barber.

    That's the angle I remember Roy taking in most all of his horse-collar tackles. He comes across the field and grabs the runner from behind. I.E. The infamous TO horse-collar.

    The difference in the Barber tackle is that Roy was coming perpendicular to Barber, but Barber cut outside and Roy grabbed him then. Roy was "behind" Barber for maybe one step. On most horse-collars, the tackler already is behind the ballcarrier.
