Cleveland Slights for Sore Eyes by kennythunder

I don’t like to point fingers, but looks like the Browns tactics are a sight for sore eyes. Will Goodell turn a blind eye or will the Browns players have a 20/20 vision of their punishment?

Ravens accuse Browns of intentionally injuring McGahee

The Baltimore Ravens accused certain Cleveland players of intentionally gouging the eyes of tailback Willis McGahee on two occasions in last Sunday’s 28-10 victory against the Browns.

The Ravens reported the incidents by sending tapes to the league office earlier this week.

“We talked to the league,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said during his weekly news conference Wednesday. “We asked them for their opinion on what happened, and we’re waiting to hear back on it.”

The Ravens are withholding the names they reported to the NFL. But in reviewing the tape, Cleveland middle linebacker Andra Davis is one of the players in question. Davis can be seen reaching under McGahee’s visor and poking him in the right eye during a tackle near the goal line midway through the third quarter.

It is unknown who the Ravens believe is the second culprit, but they believe there were two separate cases Sunday that were intentional.

McGahee rushed for 64 yards on 15 carries and a touchdown in the victory against the Browns. So far, he has had limited participation in practice this week because of his eye injury.

“That thing is swollen up badly,” Harbaugh said. “As long as he can see, he’ll play. But if he can’t see, he’s not going to be able to play. So we’ll have to try to get that swelling down.”

This weekend, Baltimore (2-0) has a big game against the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1) on Monday night in a battle for sole possession of first place in the AFC North. The teams split their season series last year.
