Childress fine with hits on Favre if they're 'the right way'
Brad Childress believes the New Orleans Saints were unnecessarily rough when it came to quarterback Brett Favre the last time the parties met in the NFC Championship Game.
With Favre back now, everyone has circled the Sept. 9 rematch in the Superdome.
“He knows there somewhere he's going to get knocked on his keister,” Childress said, according to ESPN.com’s Kevin Seifert. “That's going to happen. As long as we're doing it in the spirit of the rules, he's all good with it and I'm all good with it. In terms of not doing it that way, hey, everybody talks about hitting the quarterback. Let's just hit him the right way.”
That, of course, is a reference to the wrong ways the Saints hit Favre. Two players were called for unsportsmanlike conduct for hits on Favre and per Seifert the league later admitted there should have been a third call on Bobby McCray for when he twisted Favre’s ankle and pulled him down.
This story is only going to get more interesting as the game quickly approaches.
