Former NFL Safety and Super bowl champion Rodney Harrison say’s he would have to hurt Cam Newton in the 2x Super Bowl.
“I would go right at his knees. I would try to hurt him. That might be difference between winning and losing a Super Bowl,” Harrison said, per the show’s Andrew Perloff.
Harrison added, “That’s the only way to discourage a running QB. You have to hit him in the mouth.”
Rodney’s comments are a bit surprising knowing that he wasn’t a huge fan of the Lamarcus Joyner hit that knocked Teddy Bridgewater out of the game earlier in the season. But, being a former New England Patriot the comments don’t come off as that surprising after all. The patriots who are known for dirty play and cheating.
Harrison spent 15 years in the NFL with the Chargers and Patriots. buckling up 1,198 tackles, 30.5 sacks, 34 interceptions. He was a 2x Pro Bowler and 2x Associated Press first-team All-NFL selection. He also won 2 Super Bowls with the Patriots.
