    That the Redskins defenders were tackling hella aggressive near and below the knees?

    There were some tackles I was surprised Cobb and cooper got up from, or didnt come up limping.

    Gallup took some shots low also and now injured(dont know if it was related). Zeke also got swept up low a few times on some of his runs.

    They really got banged around in that win. Looking at the game I noticed this, ALOT.

    I was worried about Gallup especially since it looked like he took some hard shots. I didn't hear anything after the game and was relieved he was ok. Guess I was wrong.

    Yeah I did. But they always seem to do that crap. Jay Gruden thing?
    Their organisation sucks the past decade + and the players are mad as hell about it. Especially against us. Even more so when we're good.

    Did you watch the from the sidelines video? Witten mentioned the Redskins were trying to knock the crap out of everyone.

    ....some teams hit harder than others. Sea is prime example. They gang tackle with intention to inflict pain.

    Every time a receiver got hit I was wondering if they would get up.

    When I played years ago, I was small, I always hit as hard as I could at the knees. I tried to keep my head up, aimed at the knee with my shoulder pads and wrapped up. That was the only way I could bring anyone down. If I wrapped around the waist or upper body I was no more than a speed bump.

    The only game that seemed like it was coached to go low and aggressive was Seattle last year. If you watch any of their games just keep an eye on them.

    there was one play where a defender tackled Cooper by the ankle. After Cooper was on the ground the Redskins player twisted the ankle like he was trying to blow out Cooper's knee.

    no, football doesn't have to be about trying to break legs. what the OP is referring to is intentional shots to the knee & below when standard form tackle was clearly available.

    Gallup took a few shots in this game that I was surprised he held on to the ball. Took a few last week also.

    If it's on tape, how can anyone refute it?
