Kenny Vaccaro lays out Ted Ginn at line of scrimmage (GIF)


We knew we’d have a physical battle between the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers on Sunday night and both defenses are buying into the matchup that was being sold. While the Panthers defense is coming into the game the better defense, the Saints are well aware they aren’t the darlings of the NFC anymore and need to take out their aggression on someone.

So far that aggression has been directed at the Panthers offense and Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro specifically singled out Panthers wide receiver Ted Ginn to be on the receiving end of his rage.

The rookie safety laid out the veteran receiver at the line of scrimmage in the ultimate receiver jam.

nope

Ted Ginn just wasn’t going to get off the line of scrimmage, that was something that just wasn’t going to happen.

The funny part about it is that usually it’s rookies getting a big hit as a wake up call, but Vaccaro has fit right in with Rob Ryan’s defense and is instead himself dolling out the hits on unsuspecting veterans.

    The fact is he is not allowed to do that nor was he allowed to Close-line Steve Smith but with this team we see these illegal hits all the time but they never get called on it. Maybe the reporter could actually talk about that.

      Clearly you dont know the rules. Within 5 yards of line of scrimmage you can harass receivers.

      • Amanda Story

        Really since when does Harrassing mean tackling. And I notice you have no comment on the closeline to Steve Smith.

        • Cody Huesers

          He pushed him down. It is a legal move within 5 yards. It was a great, aggressive play.

          And really, this a team that gets away with illegal hits? Don’t be ridiculous.

            They were getting away with them all night there was a closeline to Steve Smith, The Offensive Line men were holding all night( they were throwing the Deffensive Line men to the ground) in one play there was two hands to the face from the same play once while he was trowing the Deffensive Line man to the ground and the second one came after the player was on the ground he shoved his hand to the face mask of the player on the ground yet no call.

            I’m going to let you in on a little secret. There is holding on almost every single play in football. The Panthers were slapped around in this game. They were outplayed and out coached. Simple as that.

          • Amanda Story

            Yes you condescending little ass I know that there is a hold on almost every play in football but I also know that 9 times out of 10 that if a player is trown to the ground then the Refs will call a holding. The Saints are turning into the Patriots of the NFC they are getting calls there way left and right and Brees is turning into Brady with all the whinning. He got a player flagged and the player got hit with a $15,750 fine because Bress played up the hit. As to your comment on how the Panthers played yes they were not playing great ball but they still deserved to have the game called fairly.
