We have talked about it over and over again, there is a new sheriff in town, and his name is LaRon Landry. Receivers of the league must be aware of where he is when the come across the middle. Say anything you want about this football player, but one thing is for sure, he can put a big hit on somebody that would rival any tackler in this league.

But, players that play with this type of aggressiveness sometimes make plays that are reckless. LaRon Landry is no exception. In yesterday’s game, Landry had two huge penalties, one late hit out of bounds, and the other a horse collar tackle later on, for 30 yards in penalties all by himself. But, does this make Landry have any regrets? No he does not.

“I’m going to continue to play the way I play,” he said after the game. “I’m going to look at the tape, critique myself and try not to put myself in a position like that again. I’m going to keep playing the way I play — I just have to be a little smarter. If he’s full-go, I’m going to try to my best to hit him and make the tackle,”

For the record, Landry didn’t agree with the horse collar call either:

“I didn’t really think I grabbed the guys shoulder pads,” Landry said. “My intention wasn’t to grab the guys’ shoulder pads.”
