The National Football Leagues talks all the time about protecting the shield, quarterbacks, and offensive players.
What about defensive players?
Who’s going to protect the stars on defense?
Last night Houston Texans All Pro linebacker Brian Cushing lost the remainder of his season to a dirty chop block.
Cushing’s former Southern Cal teammate and All Pro in his own right, Clay Matthews spoke out via twitter last night, and wants to know who’s going to protect the defensive players.
The block by Slauson was callous and unnecessary in my opinion, and he needs to be fined.
