01:57 PM ET 08.21 | Ever since the NFL began punishing players for targeting the head of opponents, defenders have dropped their target area and begun hitting ball carriers low. As a result, the likelihood of knee and ankle injuries has been on the rise and that has left offensive players unhappy with how they are being hit. It was just recently that Houston Texans safety D.J. Swearinger ended Miami Dolphins tight end Dustin Keller's season with a low hit that destroyed his knee, and Winslow isn't happy seeing his fellow offensive players subject to those kind of hits because of the NFL's rules. Winslow is just the latest player to want the NFL to protect players from low hits.

The NFL use to be a man's sport. Now it's starting to resemble figure skating...

"Yeah, I don't give a hell. It's about this U, man. I don't give a flyin' you-know-what about a Vol. I don't give a damn! He would do the same thing to me. It's war. They don't give a freakin' you-know-what about you. They will kill you. They're out there to kill you. So I'm 'a kill 'em. You write that in the paper. You write that. You make money off that. No, man, I'm pissed. All y'all take this down. I'm pissed, man. We don't care about nobody except this U. We don't. If I didn't hurt him, he'd hurt me. They were gunnin' for my legs. I'm a come right back at 'em. I'm a ****' soldier!"

I have been saying for years....Roger Goodell is ruining the NFL with all this extra rules and fines. With him at the helm, it will soon be the NFFL (National Flag Football League). Ultimately, he will be the reason when fans begin to turn, and tune out!
