There you go, making stuff up to support a point that's indefensible.
There are an average of 5.38 "Unnecessary Roughness" penalties PER TEAM (per season) in the NFL. That includes chop blocking, spearing, hitting a player out of bounds, hitting a defenseless player, hitting a kicker or quarterback, hitting in the knees, etc.
5. Per team. Per year. And that includes ALL types of illegal hits.
There is no illegal hit epidemic in the NFL. None. Zero. Illegal hits do happen, but have been minimized as much as is humanly possible. Without fighting.
I'd rebuff your sentiment by saying that those guys aren't often available, ones who can chip in offensively and kill pks as good as miller come around even less.(not saying I consider what miller does offensively as chipping in.)
Glendenning is pretty mean.
And he gets under people skin a lot, and he draws a lot of penalties without going to the box with him.
I know one player doesn't make the team gritty, but Abby plays a pretty aggressive game, quincey gets aggro in his own right.
And ericsson doesn't let people take liberties with our players as much as people say opponents do.
Brendan smith also plays a somewhat gritty game.
I forgot about glendening but would agree with your statement on him, I'm a fan. Ericsson is definitely one of the few on our team who says enough is enough and does something about it.
In my opinion it seems that miller has gotten less and less noticeable each season. Is just prefer a Matt Martin Chris Neil and many others in his place
I would also agree that it can be difficult to get those guys unlike miller who was waiver wire fodder
I would argue this is why we're ways one of the least penalized teams perennially.
I'd counter that argument by saying that many of the players I want do not take bad penalties and often times when they do it's a matching penalty making it 4 on 4 which is a situation I think the wings should excel in
