Former Giants star hits back at 'ridiculous' flag football rant

GettyImages-631230280

Mike Mitchell is fed up.

Needless to say, Steelers safety Mike Mitchell was extremely unhappy about it, having going on a passionate rant regarding the current state of professional football.

"But let's not try to turn football into a unsafe, barbaric game". And I'm sure there were plenty of guys who wore leather helmets in their day crying about how soft the game was back when Jack Tatum was paralyzing dudes on the field in the 70s.

Umenyiora, who won two Super Bowls with the Giants, has seen the evidence, and when studies show 110 of 111 brains of dead NFL players were bruised with CTE, he thinks the days of wondering if football could be hazardous to your health are over. We're playing at full speed.

"I'm gonna mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route".

Jones had said he did not feel the committee understood his demand that all owners have a voice in approving the terms of Goodell's extension. I'm not joking at all. "If you want be a little kid, you don't want get your (expletive) hit, then don't come out here".

"That's 50 grand out of my pocket because Andy [Dalton] throws a bad ball", he said.

Mitchell's rant doesn't even make sense, even if you agree with his overall point.

Well, then have we ever got something for you. I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than probably people on the Bengals. Give us flags for me to pull off so that way I know what we are playing. My nephew goes to school there and I take all that personally. You don't know me, you've never had a conversation with me. "We've got to get better leadership as who's running the league". "You know what I'm saying?"

Mitchell declined comment on his tweets from Tuesday criticizing the NFL's suspension methods.

Former Steelers backup quarterback Charlie Batch told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 2015 that players voted against the CBA because they were concerned about the scope of the personal conduct policy. We just gotta do better.

"Just hand us all some flags". There needs to be a set guideline on how you do what you do. Iloka's one-game suspension was overturned on appearl, but Smith-Schuster will miss the Steelers' Week 14 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.

"It's the stupidest thing in the world", center Maurkice Pouncey said.

Whew. OK. Video below - via Mark Kaboly of The Athletic Pittsburgh - in case you want to watch it, and you should, because it's epic. In the same game, Mitchell got tripped into quarterback Alex Smith, which some critics said was an intentional play. Plus, Hasselbeck is a nice guy! Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was also suspended one game for his late hit last week.

"This ain't football", Mitchell said.

Former players LeRoy Butler and Domonique Foxworth also expressed safety concerns that Goodell remains tasked with addressing.
