Willis McGahee’s Stiff Arm of Doom
I’m not sure what Oakland Raiders safety Hiram Eugene was trying to do there, but apparently, tackling Willis McGahee wasn’t part of the plan. At least not in a manner most defensive players use. Maybe Eugene wanted to be stiff armed in such a dominating fashion so the Raiders wouldn’t ask him to come back next season.
See? There is a method to the madness of poor defensive tackle attempts. You just have to look a little closer.
For their efforts, well McGahee’s, anyway, the Baltimore Ravens are playoff-bound. Their opening game sees them travel to New England to play the Patriots on Sunday. McGahee finished his playoff-saving day with 167 yards, while scoring all three of the Ravens’ touchdowns.
