Last weekend Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton evaded initial pressure to find Steve Smith who waltzed into the endzone for a score. Then came New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper who threw a late hit that subsequently caused a fight on the field. Video of the hit and fight can be seen here. Harper had this to say about the incident:
“I just was like, ‘You’re not going to walk and showboat in our end zone like that,'I just lost it, and maybe I shouldn’t have hit him but I did. I’m not going to apologize for what I did.”
The game was in Carolina so I fail to see how it's the Saints endzone other than they were playing defense. Maybe he should focus all of his anger on working on his coverage skills that rank #2 worst in the league by Pro Football Focus. Adam Schefter announced today that Harper was fined $15,000 for the hit on Smith.
