WGR

In light of the cervical spine injury suffered by Buffalo Bills tight end Kevin Everett Sunday, you might have thought that WGR-AM would have been compassionate and smart enough to drop its hit-of-the game feature Sunday afternoon.

But on the post-game show after the Bills 15-14 loss to the Denver Broncos, co-host Chris Parker said the play on which Everett was hurt earned it. Parker was almost apologetic about reading it, and rightly so.

A hit like the one that Everett was involved in reminded us all of how violent football can be. It also should end the practice of promoting a hit-of-the-game. Of course, NFL Films has regularly put together packages of hard hits, but only those that don’t cause serious injury.
