You probably never believed that Redskins defensive back Brandon Meriweather was the smartest man on the planet. Especially if you just watch how he plays. Game after game he knocks other players out of games and even knocks himself out of games. Yet, none of that was enough for him to scale back his play.
So the NFL was forced to help him scale back his play by suspending him for two-games which was shortened to one-game on appeal. So now that Meriweather has gotten the message loud and clear that the NFL won’t tolerate head shots, he’s decided to turn his attention to another part of opposing player’s bodies.
Brandon Meriweather “To be honest, you’ve just got to go low now..You gotta end people’s career. U gotta tear people’s ACL’s.” #Redskins
