Chan On Big Hits

Chan Gailey said Wednesday that while he understands the motive for the NFL's crackdown on violent hits, he's afraid it will make life more difficult for coaches and players who will become increasingly uncertain about what constitutes a dangerous hit.

"I don't think there's an answer to it," Gailey said during media day at One Bills Drive. "I understand what the league is trying to do, but it's hard on defensive players. I don't want us to become a two-hand touch league, that's for sure.

"It's not going to become easier, it's going to become harder as time goes on. Because we're telling these guys to hit guys and separate the ball and stop them short of the first down, and it gets harder and harder to tell a guy (how far to go). You've just got to be smart about how you play the game. The bigger and faster the people become, the harder it's going to get."
