Steelers S Mike Mitchell sheds light on physicality of NFL

Pittsburgh Steelers free safety Mike Mitchell is not happy with the state of football. More

Pittsburgh Steelers safety Mike Mitchell had some strong words during locker room availability for the team Wednesday. His outburst came after many criticized the violent nature of Monday night's AFC North battle between his Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals-which resulted in two players being carted off the field, along with multiple fines and suspensions. The first was on a brutal hit by Juju Smith-Shuster on Vontaze Burfict followed by a shot from George Iloka on Antonio Brown's late-touchdown.

But Mitchell believes that is just football.

Regardless of how you feel about the hits, the punishments or the people in charge, it's clear that many inside the The Shield really aren't sure of what's OK and what's not OK. If you don't want to be a little kid and get your a- hit, don't come out here. It's absolutely absurd. But like I said, man, Steelers versus the world. If the National Football League was smart, they would consider implementing this rule into their own guidelines for both the safety of their players and protection of their brands.

Well, then have we ever got something for you. "You have to know what the risk is when you sign up". "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than, probably, the people on the Bengals". We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline on how you see fit.

He starts by describing himself and George Iloka as physical safeties who end up making "dirty plays" due to their role as the last line of defense on the field. "We've got to get better leadership as who's running the league".

College football has a simple rule: if you receive a targeting penalty, you're immediately ejected from the game.

"You don't think Goodell doesn't know about what is going on?" You can't. It's just the risk of playing football.

"This is foot.ball, if you want to see flag football then let's take our pads off, that'll make it easier for me cause then I don't have to wear heavy s-", he said.

The 30-year-old veteran is calling for a "set guideline" when it comes to player suspensions in the NFL.

"I'm gonna mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route". You never see us get to line somebody up in a hole like a linebacker. Except the Hasselbeck thing anyway - he was mad that Hasselbeck said his hit on Alex Smith was dirty, but the league did fine Mitchell nearly $50,000 for the hit and Smith was pretty mad about it.
