Also a QB is way more likely to fumble so of course you want to knock the **** out of him

Weatherspoons hit... Head hunt
Ryan Clarks hit… apparently the refs seem to think this was ok, HEAD HUNT, clearly #10 was a defenseless receiver. It's these types of hits that get me going, all these players have been taught from pee wee through H.S. how to make a proper tackle, and it's unnecessary.
Unfortunately there's probably no way to stop it, it's the nature of these pro athletes these days.
Every defense wants to crush an elite qb (or their biggest threat in general) from opposing teams.. And their fans want to see it as well.. (Every time I watched Philly or Pittsburgh or New England I just can't wait to see someone lay the wood to their QB..) Our guy just needs to minimize their opportunities by getting rid of the ball quicker and/or sliding sooner.. He'll still get hit, but that's were the 15 yard PF's will start adding up and make them think twice, hopefully..

And it's not just for running QBs. But great QBs and great players in general. If you can't beat em, hurt em.
The same thing happens at all levels of football. If you're a great and active LBer, flying around making all kinds of tackles and plays, you better believe they are going to try and block you harder to beat you up and make you want to slow down. Being great and dangerous makes you a target.

Forgive me if it's already been asked, but why would you want to take it easy on an opposing QB?
We're hypersensitive to it. Watched a Sean Taylor highlight video lately? He absolutely blew players up.
ST would have been fined and kicked out of the game with most of his biggest hits that were legal until only a few years ago. The hits Robert is taking are strong but they're almost all that's left of the hitting. In context of a few years ago they're pretty tame.
