Browns Center Alex Mack (Metaphorically!) Slams James Harrison For Helmet Hits

Browns center Alex Mack says that James Harrison’s fine-earning hit on Mohamed Massquoi was just the tip of the iceberg, and that Harrison led with his head throughout the game. Mack goes on to argue that if helmet-to-helmet tackling is encouraged in youth football, that needs to be changed:

“A lot of the arguments right now are people are taught from Pee Wee football that this is how you play,” Mack said. “Well, we need to change that. You can’t be breaking your head. There are better ways to tackle. We’re taught you’re not supposed to spear with the top of your head.”
