Come on. It wasn't dirty.

Demaryius owned him on a stiff arm so Troy grabbed what he could get.

JFC just because a guy appears on the injury report doesn't mean he's actually injured

Would have thought you guys had figured that out after the shanahan regime



Practiced fully, listed as probable, minor shoulder injury

I heard Steven Seagal taught Polumalu some aikido.

I am sure Troy learned all his dirty moves from Hines Ward.

Looked like he tried to break his arm ... Didn't Romo tackle Sharpe like that and break his arm kinda the same way ?

Looks like Harris didn't practice. :(

When I saw it live, I thought there would be a high risk of injury. The tackle was technically clean, but in my opinion it was done out of embarrassment and frustration, and could have easily broke DT's arm. I don't think it was very sportsman-like of Polamalu.

This is why I would have kept Florence over Carter.

Florence is awful. There is no advantage. It'd be like having Andre Goodman out there. He'd be running with the guy, but little more than distraction, if that.

BTW Roddy White was limited in practice today

What's that about? Says groin injury. Did the Chiefs grab some ball?

I would rather have a awful vet then a awful young guy. At least the vet would be savy in covering.

At least Tony Carter can actually keep up with these WRs.
Florence is not fast enough anymore.

So apparently Chris Harris said he is going to practice and the ankle sprain is minor. They are just resting him to make sure he's as healthy as possible.

FYI - Polamalu is also on today's injury report, so he didn't come out clean either...

It was a dirty tackle period. He grabbed the arm, locked it in an arm bar, then did a somersault trying to dislocate it.

It was like an MMA move not football. BS it wasn't dirty. When Troy P career is over I will celebrate. Players from USC are always dirty little bitches. In fact our biggest headhunter of all time, from USC!.

Harris was in a boot - just making sure the ankle has no swelling or inflammation. I expect he will play.

Broncos biggest enemy is depth. We have 2 starting caliber WR and that is it. The rest are roll players. Not even any young raw ones that IMO look like they could be studs.

Its like Elway has a lot of pieces filled in, but not any answers on the bench. A precarious situation. Still I don't blame him he is doing what he can with a team that didn't have much talent.

But Elway did get lucky that Mcd 2010 draft is paying dividends. Without Decker and DT, Walton and Beadles, we would be pretty crappy. Even if Walton and Beadles aren't that good they are starting. Decker and Thomas sort of becoming something that could be really special. Both same yr into the league, they could play together for a long time.

Troys workouts are ridiculous...the guy works ourt like none other to enhance his reflexes and speed. He knows what he did is wrong...that sort of low brow shizz does nothing but drop your confidence as a human and then you end up losing track of who you are. I think this year will be tough one for him anyway after teams watch what manning did to expose him and that defense, hell be paying all year long.

Like when McD signed Ty Law?

Like when McD signed Ty Law?

Ty Law was off the field for how long when he was brought in to play a postion he never played his whole career!?!?

Florence was played nickel corner before. He was in our training camp all offseason. I know Florence isn't that 4.39 corner he used to be but I still think he can cover a 4.51 thrid WR. Again I'm not saying Florence is good I'm just saying he is at the very least as good as Carter.

Thomas should have got the back mount and locked in the rear naked choke. ****ing ridiculous. Should have been fined for that garbage.

So? He was still a very savy vet. Plus, he was savy enough to play a position he wasn't familiar with... he was just slow as hell and couldn't tackle for ****! Even if the ball carrier for some other reason bumped into him.

With the speed ATL has at WR... Ryan would look for Florence every time. Plus... what's all this bashing on Carter? It's not like the kid has not talent. He just needs to polish his technique. He is great depth. Carter has a higher ceiling... well he has a ceiling at least. Florence is on the downside of his career. Plus... we already experimented on signing former Charger CBs.

I am glad we used a roster spot on a young player over the rehashed vet for once.

Again Ty Law was signed off the street to play a position he has never played. He struggled with the plays and even where to line up. Why? Because he didn't have a clue what he was doing. No amount of games played was ever going to prepare him for doing what he was doing that is why it was a FAILURE.
Carter has a ceiling? News to me. LOL Even with speed I look to Ryan to attack Carter all day long if Harris can't play and as you pointed out he has no technique to even get the advantage of a WR.

Again, the tackle was not dirty.


Wrenching his arm after the tackle was dirty as balls.

I went back and watched the play after reading this thread -- while technically legal, he definitely did it with intent to injure. Very unsportsmanlike.

Oh well, we'll hopefully get them in the playoffs, I'm sure DeMaryius wouldn't mind having a few shots at Mr. Polamalu on some crackbacks.

This.

Dirty? Sorta, I guess. There aren't many true dirty ways to tackle a ball carrier that aren't legal. It is, however, very impressive that Troy managed to do this while running. I imagine Troy's goal was to make someone regret stiff arming him. Mission accomplished
