America hates Danny Trevathan at the moment

Danny Trevathan is not a popular man right now after landing a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit on a defenseless Packers receiver in the Thursday night game. The hit was completely uncalled for and left Packers wide receiver Davante Adams lying stiff as a board on the field.

See for yourself:

Adams gave a thumbs up as he was carted off the field, but he didn’t make any movements other than that.

The former Kentucky Wildcat can expect a suspension coming his way.

    That was not only dangerous, but unnecessary. Guy was wrapped up and going down. Danny should know better.

    Dirty hit and he stood there barking at GB players as Adams lay motionless a few feet from him. Not a good look for Danny…

    Nope. He launched at the midsection. An accident nothing else.

      Exactly. Receiver was upright and fighting for yards and lowered his head into Danny’s, while Danny’s head and trajectory never changed. When the receiver slid down and changed his helmet height, there was nothing Trevathan could do to prevent the contact.

    What a dumbass! I bleed blue for life, but Danny needs to be suspended, and for a while. That was egregious, and incredibly dangerous. Let’s hope Adams is ok. Trevathan could’ve ended the guy’s career with that senseless hit. Made me sick to my stomach just watching it. He made it even worse by mouthing off after it. BBN expects better from you 59.

    How was he not thrown out of the game?

    This was not an intentional dirty hit. The player was not going down and the whistle hadn’t been blown. The game of football is going soft. Yes I agree helmet to helmet hits are very dangerous and I agree he should get a game suspension. But that’s not the player Danny is. Danny goes after it on every down from whistle to whistle. He doesn’t deserve all the hate he is getting. Danny is one of the most underrated in the league. The hit wasn’t dirty nor cheap so i will not let someone slander his name like that. Football is a hard hitting sport and the players get paid MILLIONS to put it all out there, injuries are a part of that. #FreeDanny

      You’re delusional. Don’t let your biased for Kentucky and their players cloud your judgment. That was an incredibly dirty hit, and extremely uncalled for.

      People reacted, just like the refs did, to how they are told to perceive it. If people played the game and looked without being told what to think, they wouldn’t think anything of the hit. If Trevathan wasn’t as fast as he is, he might have been able to change his trajectory, but he STILL COULDN’T prevent the ball-carrier from lowering HIS helmet into Danny’s.

      Had the WR not lowered his head into the hit, Danny’s shoulder would have hit him. Of course, Fining-Roger will cave to perception just like those who think the hit was vicious.

    Was not dirty. Adams was trying to extend the play and Danny was cleaning it up like he was taught to do. He came in head down which is bad form, but LEGAL. Adams just happens to dip down right before contact or it wouldnt have happened. Its unfortunate but its football, helmet to helmet hits happen.

      Yep. Watched it live and again after. The Packers called it, and the refs reacted with the flag, but they knew it wasn’t Danny that initiated the helmet contact.

      Adams was wrapped up and had stopped going forward, Adams was inevitably going down, there’s no reason to launch yourself head first at full speed in the first place. It was a bad move by Danny in a moment of frustration, he supposedly apologized afterwards. The hit was dirty, but I doubt he meant to seriously hurt Adams

      Completely agree man. Flag for helmet to helmet, nothing more. Olineman #64 was in the process of pushing pile / knocking the only tackler off the WR. #freedanny

      Danny keeps leading with his head like that he will be the one down on the ground one day with a broken neck. No excuse for leading with the head that way, taught at 8 years old to see what you hit. I do agree the runner started to fall which lowered his head but how does Danny justify tackling that way. Hate to say it but if Danny broke his neck that way I would not feel sorry for him, no excuse for how he tackled then to run his mouth after looked even worse.

    #freedanny may be the dumbest “free(name here)” I have ever seen. Led with the crown, helmet to helmet. Adams is being evaluated for an injury that could effect not just playing time, but, his life. Those that follow football closely know this isn’t the first (or second, or third…) time Trevathan has been called out for being dirty. Just stop defending him and look at it for what it is…A dirty play by a dirty player.

      This is the only penalty for unnecessary roughness that he has received in the 63 NFL games he’s played in. Sound like you need to follow football a little closer before you make statements without facts.

    Uncalled for? How stupid and what a bunch of foolishness. If you don’t want to get hit, don’t play football. There was simply nothing wrong with this situation.

    At some point it is the runners responsibility to go down

    Glad to see some reasoned posts here on this rather than straight emotion. Refs and fans need to attend a hit clinic to understand the physics of football.

    This game has gone completely bi-polar at this point.

    I lobby for the defender much of the time on these bang bang plays. Running full speed and you can’t control how the ball carrier is going to react. However, in my opinion he led with his helmet. Regardless, that is one idiotic headline.

    Everyone complaining has never played a down of football. It’s football big hits happen. Come on guys.

    I love Danny, but man, there’s no place for that kind of play in today’s NFL. He should be suspended for that it. It was dirty. That may have been ok in the old NFL, but player safety is too important, especially with study after study showing how bad CTE is for former football players. Gotta clean the game up if we want it to still be a big sport 20 years from now.

    I see both sides of the argument…The ball-carrier did lower his helmet as Trevathan was coming into the play, but he did lead with his helmet and didn’t need to. Recipe for disaster. But, on the other hand, if you’re a football player you’ve got to have the wherewithal to protect yourself. Not getting any more yardage there…Just go down.

      To all the people saying you should never lead with your helmet have probably never played a down of football above pee wee level. If you try to make a stand up tackle you’re going to get ran tf over. When going to make a tackle 90% of the time you going full speed and when you make the hit your head is going to drop down. It’s just football. Danny is far from a dirty player and definitely not the dirtiest in the league. I’m sure it half y’all Vontez Burrific loving Bengals fans say this bs about Danny anyway.

    You guys must be seeing a different video on KSR than I am seeing – all see is the aftermath, not the hit. Guess I will have to Google it…
