    Angry Eagles Rodgers-Cromartie: No question my hit on Leftwich was legal

    Now seriously? He's actually going to justify that hit and keep a straight face? The replacement refs even knew it was a personal foul. I found it laughable to say the least that he could justify it, especially given Leftwich's fragile state these last couple years..LOL

    No harm done in the end but seriously dude, might wanna read your rule book. Even Andy Reid knew it was a flag.

    Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie launched at Steelers quarterback Byron Leftwich in last week’s preseason game and was flagged for unnecessary roughness, but Rodgers-Cromartie doesn’t think he did anything wrong.

    Rodgers-Cromartie told Sheil Kapadia of PhillyMag.com that he doesn’t think he’ll be fined, and that there’s “no question” in his mind that his hit on Leftwich was clean. He also said he has no regrets about his hit on Leftwich.

    “Regrets? We’re playing football, man,” Rodgers-Cromartie said. “The Bible said don’t live a life of regret.”

    Rodgers-Cromartie may have the Bible on his side, but he doesn’t have the rulebook on his side. It’s a foul if a player leaves both feet prior to contact to spring forward and upward into his opponent and uses any part of his helmet to initiate contact. It’s also a foul if a player initiates unnecessary contact against an opponent in the act of throwing a pass or just after throwing a pass. That’s what Rodgers-Cromartie did to Leftwich, and that’s why he’ll be fined.

    Legal hit? Hell NO! Great hit? Hell yes!!! Honestly, as Steeler fans we're usually on the otherside of this convo so i'll call it a Nice, but, ILLEGAL hit and be done with it! I think he is an idiot for not understanding why it was illegal though!

    That's a legal hit? Launching yourself at the head of a QB?

    I found it comical that he was using the Bible to help justify his play. I'm all for players being open about their religion if they choose but seriously man, I'm sure even God knew that was an illegal hit l

    As a result of that hit, James Harrison has been suspended for the first game of the season.
