LaRon Landry: ‘I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting’
Reggie Bush was injured at the hands of the New York Jets earlier this year, and LaRon Landry does not feel the slightest bit of remorse about it. Landry and Sione Po’uha combined on the hit that fortunately caused only a minor injury to Bush’s left knee, and Landry said he is confident it will be in the back of the Dolphins running back’s mind and make him gun shy in the future.
“He will remember that hit,” Landry said Wednesday according to Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News. “Every time he sees me, he will remember that hit. Just watch the way he runs on Sunday. I’m not going to overtalk it or make it a story.”
Prior to their first meeting, Rex Ryan mentioned that the Jets need to “throw some hot sauce” on Bush because he had been running so well. After Bush hurt his knee, Calvin Pace made some questionable comments that had some wondering if the Jets were trying to injure him. That led to Bush saying Darrelle Revis’ season-ending knee injury was karma, and now the mystery is whether or not New York will retaliate on Sunday.
If it comes down to a situation where Landry meets Bush in the open field, it doesn’t sound like he intends to show any mercy.
“If I get penalized, I’m not going to stop hitting or head hunting,” Landry said when asked about his aggressive style of play. “I’m not going to stop the way I play.”
Not exactly the type of comments Roger Goodell’s wants to hear from the NFL’s defensive players. It’s one thing to say you won’t change the way you play to accomodate the new rules, but calling yourself a head hunter is never a bright idea. By making these comments, Landry is simply forcing the refs to keep a close eye on him this weekend.
