Bucs place S Chris Conte, the man who got trucked by Vance McDonald, on IR

Recommended Posts

This guy sucked in Chicago and still sucks as we saw the other night.  Can't make tackle to save his life.  And the Bucs wonder why they have a bad secondary with this guy as one of their starters...

I still find it odd that a ball carrier can go hands to the face, punch to the face, jab to the face, borderline facemask etc etc

It's more than a little ironic. You can clearly see Conte's head twisted around - NOT THAT I'M COMPLAINING but isn't that the reason why they don't want defenders yanking on RB's facemask?

Meanwhile, the guy they let walk in favor of Conte is currently one of the best SS's in the NFL (Bradley McDougald)

I don't like to make light of any injury, but Brandt has a point here, Cam Heyward's reaction is EVERYTHING!:

 

a play like that will show who is actually into the game.  Notice our kicker  still trying to solve the yips

Why does this guy get so much hate? Hes been above avg in PFF grades and doesn’t seem that bad?

nice stiff arm but it’s not like he’s the only guy that got trucked hard this week

He's not.  Conte's been a decent starter for much of his career, but for whatever reason, everyone seems to have a vivid memory of every single mistake this man has ever made... 

Chicago fans would watch an opposing RB slice right through the defense at full-speed, untouched leaving it to Conte to drag the guy down; then complain about the way Conte tackled him...  It's not as bad in Tampa, but he gets similar treatment.  Notice there is no criticism for LaVonte David who blew the coverage and let McDonald get wide open in the first place....

A play like this happens at least a dozen times on a given Sunday, but it's Conte, so everyone has to point and laugh.

This title is so disrespectful. 

True. "Trucked" is an understatement.

I mean. He played the Steelers game with a torn PCL.

Time to unleash Jordan Whitehead.

Give me Leonard Fournette at LSU, stiff-arming a dude into the bowels of hell over all of these options:

#1 got CTE on that one. If this was the NFL, Fournette would have been fined.

Nobody enjoys seeing a player get hurt, but the national reaction from this play is yet another reminder of the essence of football. Yes, it's fun seeing those passes to graceful receivers for big gains, but the origins of the sport still resonate today. It's physicality, it's one man hitting another as hard as possible to achieve a desired result. Unfortunately, some people in the league office, and some writers outside this website don't understand this reality. Violence is part of the DNA of football whether we admit or not.

I'm pretty sure we all get it. That's why parents aren't letting their kids play. Which will be a big problem for the NFL if it continues. Thus the changes.

No we all don't get it. We almost never hear about the scores of successful former NFL players who are excelling well after their playing days ended. And plenty of parents are letting their sons play, because the sport is still a positive in our society. This issue of player safety has been framed wrong from the beginning, we can have our cake and eat it too. The changes to the game in recent years have been moronic, smart change is the way to go. This isn't rocket science.
