Burfict gets wrist slap

Recommended Posts

25,000 for intentionally trying to hurt two different players? What a croc

 

There was a reason his punk ass wasn't drafted, guess it's coming to light now

In less than three years, Bengals OLB Vontaze Burfict has gone from undrafted rookie to Pro Bowl performer and earned a $19 million contract extension. But the last couple weeks should serve as a wakeup call that he needs to make changes to how he plays, immediately. Burfict's injury in Sunday's 27-0 loss at Indianapolis – a "cervical strain" to his neck, coach Marvin Lewis said – was the product of lowering his helmet into Colts QB Andrew Luck's ribs. This from a player who suffered concussions in Weeks 1 and 2 this season and also left temporarily after a hit to the head last weekend against Carolina. Toss in the twisting of two Panthers' ankles that cost him a $25,000 fine and led to widespread criticism, and it should be apparent to Burfict that he needs to clean up his act. The Bengals need him on the field too badly to risk a suspension, or worse, a career-altering injury, especially given the way the defense has stumbled since the bye.

He's been hit in the head too many times to know he's doing something wrong.
