Donte aka “Hitner” Whitner has earned the reputation as one of the hardest hitting safety’s in the NFL. Well, Whitener’s reputation proved to be right Monday night against the Falcons as he absolutely crushed Steven Jackson. Of course, a flag was thrown on the play, and Atlanta went on to score a touchdown.
This is exactly what is wrong with the NFL. Whitner goes in right in the mid-section, and uses his forearm, not his helmet. Did it contact Steven Jackson’s helmet? This is football, let the men play!
