Coach: Bills never intended to hurt Berry last season (http://www.kansascity.com/2012/09/12/3810683/coach-bills-never-intended-to.html)
By ADAM TEICHER
The Kansas City Star
Buffalo coach Chan Gailey said the Bills didn’t intend to injure Chiefs safety Eric Berry in last year’s game between the teams.

Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson leveled Berry with a cut block at the knees on one of the first plays of last year’s game, which was the season opener. The result was a torn ACL that ended Berry’s season.

Berry later tweeted that he thought the Bills were out to get him, though he subsequently said he was only joking.

The Chiefs and Bills play one another again Sunday in Buffalo.

“I hate he feels that way because there was never any intention,’’ Gailey said Wednesday. “We never talked about it. It was never even discussed. Our guys were just hustling and trying to make blocks. It was unfortunate it happened. He’s a great player and I’m glad to see him back on the field.’’

Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said he believed Berry was over the incident.

“I know Eric has mentioned that last year, during the offseason, I think it was,’’ Crennel said. “He hasn’t mentioned anything this year other than trying to win the game.

“I don’t think Eric has difficulty going up against anybody. He enjoys the game. He wants to play the game and he wants to play it at a high level.’’

Meanwhile, outside linebacker Tamba Hali will return to practice Wednesday. He didn’t play in the Chiefs’ season-opening loss to Atlanta because he was serving a one-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.

“I hope I see the effort he gives on every play (and) what he brings to the table as far as pass rush goes,’’ Crennel said. “I hope he hasn’t forgotten anything and that he can step right in and move right along.

“The way he approaches the game and the way he plays down in and down out, that impacts the guys around him. They want to play up to the level he plays. When you get guys playing up to the level that he plays, then you can lift the team.’’

“It sucks that he feels that way, but oh well. He should shut his mouth and go out there and perform’’ Gailey said Wednesday. “We talked about it with Stevie. I told him to bring the pain. So our guys were just out there hustling trying to sweep the leg. It sucks it happened, but thats football. He’s a great player, glad to see him back on the field, but he needs to man up a little’’

I just hope for once the Chiefs will man up and kick some ass instead of being a bunch of pussies.


No, i don't expect anyone to take Stevie Johnson's knee out. I do hope they knock the holy fuck outa him though.

When he crosses over the middle they should waste him even if they get a penalty.

I would have liked to see cut blocks taken out before any "defenseless WR crap".

Half of those hits are BS anyways with the WR crouching himself down to brace for the hit. What do you know? Helmet to helmet.

I am afraid those days are gone, but will be pleasantly surprised if I am wrong.

Did you see any retaliation for the Shawne Merriman hit on Priest?
The Robert Geathers hit on Trent Green?

With free agency and the players union, it is more like a fraternity now, as the guy may be your team mate soon.

With the picks that Atlanta was running, I am surprised there weren't a couple more injuries Sunday.

Hopefully, Berry took $50k and put it in a nice little savings account. All ready for his fine of helmet-to-helmet on a defenseless, bitch-ass receiver.

If Stevie Johnson can add two and two on Monday morning...mission failure.

EXACTLY! SO many times, like last game, the Chiefs get their asses handed to them by a former player or a teem. (Gonzo dunking the ball over the goal post at Arrowhead really pissed me off.) The Bills kicked our asses last year at ARROWHEAD and ended Berry's season in the process. Just ONCE I'd like to see the Chiefs KICK ASS in retaliation. Just ONCE I'd like to see them win the Battle and the war!

Chiefspants
09-12-2012, 05:24 PM
Berry gives me hope. The way he absolutely destroyed Brandon Lloyd here in Arrowhead and then mocked him with his own taunt was beautiful to see. It was clear Berry remembered the beating the Chiefs had in Denver earlier that season, and he wasn't going to allow history to repeat itself.

Lloyd was blanketed for the rest of that game.

I hope Stevie suffers something lingering, like a hamstring. It will bug him all season long and he'll get depressed for the shitty season he put up. In the offseason he'll go to Africa to get away from it all and clear his head.

Like a retard, he'll encounter a pool of hippos...

That mediocre Pollard wiped out Brady and the Pats didn't try to decapitate him. He also wiped out Gronk's ankle and I still don't expect the Pats to decapitate him.

Football isn't hockey. If you're obviously going after someone, then the fines and suspensions are going to be pretty serious.

Eric Berry is a class act.

I bet he makes it a point to shake hands with Stevie Johnson before the game and to tell him "no hard feelings" no matter what he REALLY thinks.

Then, every time Stevie goes across the middle he aims for a kill shot on him.

Chiefs are a soft bitch team. They're not going to even look in Stevie's direction except when he's blowing right by Reeves for 40 yards. Crush him or decapitate him? We'll be lucky if they push him out of bounds with any sort of force.
