In the Skins win over the Bears last week, The Ron Landry picked up a 15 yarder for a late hit on Muhammad. At the time, I thought it was borderline bullshit, but I also happened to be more than a little intoxicated that night. Seeing it again, it was obviously the right call. The issue here is Collinsworth’s reaction:
I realize he was a mediocre WR — a position prone to creating whiny little bitches who spell “Chris” like “Cris” — so he’s extra sensitive when it comes to getting touched on the football field, but come on dude. Landry was about one second late hitting the receiver on a pass that grazed Muhammad’s fingers. It’s not like it was some sort of cheap shot away from the play.
And what is Collinsworth’s double-secret inside relationship with the Redskins coaches which tells him that “head hunting” is a major complaint the team has with Landry? God damn, that guy’s a douchebag.
Not that I have any strong feelings about Collinsworth one way or the other.
