Steelers safety Mike Mitchell rips National Football League for officiating on hard hits

  • Watch: Steelers Safety Mike Mitchell Unloads on NFL Discipline Procedure, Roger Goodell

"They're out of their minds". Two of the most prominent players on each defense were even forced to leave the game early while another two were handed down suspensions.

"When you think about what they're doing to defenders... defenders now don't have a clue how to play football anymore".

"At the end of the day this is foot".

The speed of the game simply doesn't allow for less hitting, Mitchell said. When I was 6 years old watching Charles Woodson, Rod Woodson, Sean Taylor, the hitters, Jack Tatum. No one wants to be paralyzed. They don't know what's a good hit no more. "I don't understand it".

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell weighs in on NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell, league rules and punishments. He compared the hit to the one delivered in Week 14 by New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Mitchell - who himself has been fined four times for risky hits and taunting - was referring to the Monday Night Football fiasco in which Pittsburgh's JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cincinnati's George Iloka were handed one-game suspensions for separate hits on opposing players.

League official Troy Vincent told reporters Wednesday that the NFL might adopt college football's targeting rule that ejects players for egregious hits. Players, he said, should be the ones championing these reforms the loudest. "Think about what you ask us to do. There's just so much going on in the game right now".

"I understand that, from the fans' perspective". "I thought a fine, a pretty steep fine, something like that". But if you don't want to get injured, don't come out here. And at first you're taking our money, but now I got assholes like Matt Hasselbeck calling me a dirty player and trying my character, and we never met before. You don't know me, you've never had a conversation with me. Smith-Schuster's block on Burfict happened during a play. People are dying. People are dying in very, very bad ways because of this head trauma. We are always making bang-bang plays. There should be no doubt, he said. Danny Trevathan, Mike Evans, Aqib Talib, Michael Crabtree and Smith-Schuster have all received one-game bans this season for various head shots. "I can hear the way they talk; their speech is starting to ... it's the strangest thing to see". If you want to see flag football, then let's take our pads off. "What are you talking about?" The NFL is the last bastion of masculinity? He said there will still be crashes and collisions, but if you're wearing a seat belt, "you aren't going to die". In no way was he tryna hurt AB just like I know @TeamJuJu wasn't trying to hurt #55. "For people to be against that in any form or fashion, the players especially, is just stupid".
