Blue-on-blue violence in NFL preseason

Zoltan Mesko punts for 48 yards to NYG23. Mario Manningham return for 20 yards to NYG43. Tackled by Zoltan Mesko.

Zoltan Mesko flexes his muscle. The punter, who at 6-foot-5, 231 pounds looks like a linebacker, got the Patriots sideline fired up when he lassoed returner Mario Manningham to record a tackle. It was one of the more authoritative tackles of the night (which isn’t saying much for the team’s defense).
I love Super Mario, but he ought to know better than to incur the wrath of the Space Emperor by returning one of his punts.

I was the only guy at the bar cheering when he came inthe field and went crazy when he got the tackle! Neven held up the Z when he came on....I'm sure people were staring at me

When an unstoppable force is also an immovable object. Mario should have used P-Wings and flown over the Space Emperor with his raccoon tail. It was the only obvious move.

Way back when Zoltan was a first-year starter, I remember the student section chanting his name when he absolutely leveled some poor dude returning one of his punts. Anybody remember that game?
