Saints v. Detroit--Payton, Williams, Carmichael, Big Hits
Written by

graham-panthersThere were  a couple of big hits on defenseless receivers during Monday night's Saints-Giants game, but neither of them drew fines from the NFL office. Saints safety Addul-Ouddus and Giants safety Kenny Phillips were both given a free pass from the league office for their hits on Monday night.

Abdul-Quddus'  hit was the subject of a lot of conversation because he appeared to be leading with his shoulder when he crushed Hakeen Nicks to cause an incompletion. Many wondered what a defensive back is supposed to do when the alternative is letting a receiver catch a pass that hurts his team's chances of winning.  Analyst Jon Gruden ruled against the flag for the hit in the ESPN booth, although replays showed that Addul-Quddus' helmet made contact with Nicks' helmet.

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
