Roy Williams decision

And in a move that should surprise no one, the NFL denied Roy Williams' appeal of his one-game suspension for his horse-collar tackle of Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb.

The following is the statement released by the NFL today:

"Commissioner (Roger) Goodell has denied the appeal of the one-game suspension of Roy Williams. The ‘horse collar’ tackling technique is prohibited because the Competition Committee and the clubs have determined that it presents an unacceptable risk to player safety. Rules that protect and advance player safety must be enforced in a way that will deter violations and prevent injuries from occurring."

Keith Davis, you are now on the clock.

There's two ways the guy behind you gets to start. One, your injured, or two, your stupid. Roy Williams ain't hurt!
You don't need the horse collar. You go low, wrap their legs up, and you can bring down the biggest player in the NFL. Which for Roy, may actually mean NOT FOR LONG.
