It looked very similar to the shot Gosder Cherilus took on Jared Allen a few years ago. He got a little bit grumpier about it though.

That kind of shit really bothers me. I like hard hitting football as much as anyone, but when someone goes after your knees, that is just wrong. Unfortunately, it's probably not as much the player's fault as it is the coaches. Unless the play is illegal, it will be taught, regardless of the merit.

In all fairness, they have been cracking down more on the shots to the knees, but not near enough in my book. Not just talking about the crack back blocks, but the DB's targeting RB's knees even when they are in very vulnerable positions. They know what they are doing, but it is legal, so they are taught by some to go ahead and do it. GB CB's used to always target AD's knees.

I'm disappointed there was no retaliation against Looney. That's the kind of thing you can not let slide.
When pitchers in the NL throw at someone, they're getting thrown at when they come to the plate. You take a blind side cheap shot at someone's knee, away from the play, preseason or not, you should get your ass beat.

That's a relief.

The 49ers made a bunch of illegal blocks in the game. We did not see flags flying. The block on Williams, while legal, was dirty play in a preseason game.
