Matt Bowen has penned an article for the Chicago Tribune about his time with the Skins and their "Bounty" system. Its pretty specific to put it nicely. Here is a nice snipit:
In a makeshift meeting room, with the whisper of evening traffic pouring in from the Beltway, we laid our bounties on opposing players. We targeted big names, our sights set on taking them out of the game.
Price tags started low during the regular season — a couple hundred bucks for going after the quarterback hard or taking a running back out below the knees. Chop him down and give a quick smile when you got back to the huddle. You just got a bonus.
You can read the rest here.
Its a damn good read, IMO. None of what Bowen said surprises me.
It also might signal some serious change for the NFL as a whole based on how Goodell has been clamping down on big hits. This offseason keeps on getting more and more interesting. Good or bad.
