    Within the context of their careers, I agree with you.

    But how many of these plays would result in a fine or suspension in the current NFL?

    I didn't mention Plank or Fencik because I don't consider them dirty players, by any stretch of the imagination.

    That's all fine and dandy Benji, but I would hardly call Suh a dirty player. Maybe the more feminine NFL fans of today swallow the anti-Suh propaganda, but I don't consider him a dirty player at all.

    I agree it was a different time, they all played within the game rules of their time. They did not commit cheap shots like stepping on players or cutting someone at the knees when they were outside the play. Those are dirty plays.

    So, stomping on a players head AFTER THE WHISTLE is clean? Dropping elbows, diving at players knees..... that is as clean as Sunday's laundry?

    Suh is a dirty player who threatens players careers and livelihood. And I really don't care what happened "back in the day" with old timers from the past. I do care about our key Bears players on THIS team getting cheap-shots that can end their season, or even their career. Jay Cutler, as a QB, is very vulnerable to one of these kind of injuries. Long is too, if Suh blows one of Kyles knees out on purpose. When Suh loses his temper (and we've all seen this for years now, on multiple occasions) he pulls this dirty stuff. It's clearly outside the lines of simply playing the game with a passion. He plays to hurt and injure in these circumstances.

    He's bad for the game. Goodell needs to sweep him out of the NFL.

    I have said this before, and will say it again.

    Suh is a tremendous player. If he ever cut out this cheap shot, dirty play... he could be one of the best.

    I saw very few if any plays that would be flagged even in today's environment. Fencik lead with with head but contact was made with the right shoulder on majority of the hits. Also I have not heard him having any recent head injury related issues. But maybe he does because who wouldn't want be part of $700 million settlement.

    I thought his career was ended by a major concussion. I did some internet research and it looks like he had 15 reported concussions. This was well before the current concussion protocols, so any number is probably low.

    The point of my post is that Doug's entire style of play while perfectly acceptable in the late 70's and early 80's would be severely punished today. Head to head contact, spearing, hitting a defenseless receiver were all part of his repertoire.

    I am not calling Doug a dirty player. It is just that he probably wouldn't make an NFL roster today. Without the aggressive play, he is too small and too slow.

    If Long and Mills hold up this was a awesome draft, even without Bostic who has a good chance to be a top MLB. Hell if you get one quality starter every draft you are doing good, we might have 3.
