This is pretty F'n disturbing, IMO.

ALAN FANECA, Steelers Guard

"At Tampa Bay, I had the ball at the bottom of the pile. It was away from my body, and I was trying to pull it toward me. Two guys were pulling my arms apart. A guy was digging into my ribs. Another guy was digging into my ear. The only way you'll keep the ball in that situation is if you have a teammate helping you and you can get it into your body and cradle it. Anyway, I lost the ball. There were still four people on top of me, including that ear guy. I said, 'I don't have the freaking ball anymore, stop digging in my ear.'"

IKE REESE, Eagles Linebacker

"When we played the Patriots last year [Eagles running back] Brian Westbrook fumbled a punt, and we were all down there scrambling for it. [Patriots linebacker] Mike Vrabel had my testicles in his hand, and he was squeezing them. Where the football ends up depends on who has the strongest will or the strongest hands. Guys reach inside the face mask to gouge your eyes. But the biggest thing is the grabbing of the testicles. It is crazy."

MARCO RIVERA, Packers Guard

"I've had guys go for the privates, guys try to put their elbow in my neck, guys reaching inside my helmet. It's really violent down there, trying to get that ball. It's dangerous. In my third year at Penn State, there was a fumble in the end zone. I dived for it with my arms outstretched, and five guys landed on me. Blew out my shoulder. I had to have surgery. That was the closest I've come to scoring a touchdown."

CORNELL BROWN, Ravens Linebacker

"The worst part is when the fat guys pile on top of you. All the wind is gone out of you, and you're still trying to fight. It scares you. You feel like you can't breathe, and you want everyone to get off you. I don't want people doing me wrong in there."

This reminds me of the sketch from the old "In Living Color" show, I think it was called "Men On Football". The "gay" Wayans would talk about "the big ol' manly men jumping on top 'o each other", and "my turn at the bottom of the pile"

Well, that's probably why you've won no Super Bowls.

But, geez, if that's what it takes to get to DisneyWorld...

When there's a loose ball, there aren't any positions, just 22 guys all trying to pounce on the same thing. Heart, determination, and will are a few of your weapons driving you to get that ball, but a fat lot of good they'll actually do you when a 300 lb. man is on your ass. And yes, I would gladly grab a guy where it matters and twist if it meant I'd meet no bodily harm. Be damned with all this 'no nutshots' pact some guys hold to; they've either never been in a fight or they're the BADDEST DUDES ON THE PLANET.



Hold nothing sacred and you'll never be dissapointed. Especially not this statement.

    Question: What's the most outrageous thing you've seen in a pileup?

    A: Well, I know I punched a guy in the [crotch] once as an Oiler. I got kicked out of the game. It was because he pushed me over a pile. It was on a field goal. I was watching the kick. The kick was already gone. [Jerry Ball] took two hands to my face mask and pushed me over the pile. I couldn't get up off the ground because everyone was underneath me, and I just swung at the nearest thing I saw.

    Q: What goes on in a pile when there's a fumble?

    A: A lot of times you know who has the ball, but the officials don't. You know you've got a teammate in there going for the ball. You go in there and pry guys' thumbs back. As soon as you bend somebody's thumb back, they're going to let go of the ball. I've seen it happen, where you know the other team had it, but you're in there bending fingers enough that you get the guy to let go of it and a guy on your team gets it.

    Q: Does anything go?

    A: Well, yeah. Your main focus is to get to the ball. You're not going to be able to pull bodies off, so you're just trying to manipulate hands and fingers. There's stuff you can do real small, because you don't have a lot of room to work.

I give him credit. He managed to make Sean Hannity look like the normal, sane one, I suppose. Personally, I don't like Vick, I think he's a first-rate jerk, and probably should still be in prison but calling for anyone to be killed is stupid and immoral.
