Vontaze Burfict is a Dirty Punk

In case you hadn’t heard, Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was the subject of criticism this past weekend after his game against the Panthers. As if a game ending in a tie isn’t awful enough, you have this joke of a player on the field giving football players a bad name.

On two separate occasions Burfict was caught twisting Cam Newton and Greg Olsen’s ankles at the tail end of a tackle. Burfict’s tackle on Greg Olsen happened as Olsen fell into the end zone for a touchdown.

This guy should be suspended multiple games if not for the rest of the season as this is clear evidence of intentionally trying to hurt a player. Burfict is tied for the team league in penalties this season having only played one full game and led the Bengals last year in penalties that included eight personal foul penalties.

Look I get that it is a violent game and personally have issues with all of the penalties that are called and the hypocrisy of the game. This is different, this is a coward that can’t get the job done on the field when he is supposed to so he is taking cheap, dirty shots that can impact a player’s career.  There are probably other players that do this and haven’t been publicized, well here is the opportunity to send a message. Suspend him for at least 3 games and fine the hell out of him. There is no place in the game for this type of antics.
