Giants DT Chris Canty rips Eagles' Todd Herremans

Chris Canty has labeled Todd Herremans a dirty player after the Philadelphia Eagles guard took him out with two low hits in the meeting with the New York Giants on Sunday night.

“Making my life difficult is one thing,” Canty told Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger. “Going low like that is another.”

Herremans was called for tripping on the first play when he dove at the back of Canty’s leg as he pursued Eagles quarterback Michael Vick. A chop block was called on the next play when Herremans dove at Canty low while he was engaged with center Mike McGlynn.

“Two of them. Same guy,” Canty said. “When you talk about players doing that to one another ... playing hard, playing between the whistles is one thing. But that was a dirty play. I think we all can agree on that.

“In a league where we’re trying to crack down on defenseless players and things of that nature, that can’t be allowed. You’re talking about defensive players taking shots on quarterbacks and wide receivers, well the league has to protect defensive players as well. That kind of behavior, it’s either taught or it’s allowed. Either way, it has no place in our game.”
