"Why the Giants Targeted a Player Prone to Concussions" by Barry Petchesky - Deadspin.com

I guess we're all supposed to act surprised here that the Giants knew Kyle Williams had a concussion history and went after him, I suppose trying to concuss him. Really? We're supposed to be surprised? Why come? That's football 101. Not even. That's contact sport 101. In boxing, if the guy's eye is cut, you punch the shit out of it. In karate, if the dude's got a trick knee, you sweep that fucking leg. In football, if Kyle Williams brain doesn't work right you hit him right in his domepiece so hard he doesn't realize a key punt just bounced right off his jelly legs. It's really pretty simple.

Also, why is Deadspin even talking about this? I thought by this point everybody involved with the NFL, coaches, players, fans, brass, were in tacit agreement that yes the players are killing each other slowly on the field, and even if it's not right, it's still OK.
