Donte Whitner: NFL just wants me to let receivers catch TD passes

Donte Whitner AP

For the second week in a row, 49ers safety Donte Whitner is lashing out at the NFL over a penalty he received for a hit to an opposing player.

Whitner was called for unnecessary roughness for a hit on Rams wide receiver Chris Givens on Thursday, and on Friday Whitner said that penalty was a ridiculous call when all he was trying to do was knock the ball out of a receiver’s hands, as that receiver was leaping for a pass in the end zone.

“I think I’m just supposed to let them catch a touchdown now,” Whitner said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “I think that’s what the National Football League wants, but I’m not going to give them that. I’m going to continue to play physical, continue to hit the right way, lead with my shoulder, and I’m not targeting anybody’s head.”

Last week Whitner complained that his penalty for a hit on Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw was a bad call, and the NFL agreed, confirming this week that the penalty flag shouldn’t have been thrown. We’ll see with the hit on Givens whether the NFL once again admits the officials screwed up, or whether the NFL will hit Whitner’s paycheck as hard as Whitner hits opposing players.

    Another whinner complaining, just like his coach.

    Translation: NFL doesn’t want me trying to kill it’s marquee players.

    Who goes to or watches a game to see Donte Whitner?

    No one.

    The key to a dominant defense use to be having one or two SHUTDOWN corners.

    NOW… in the modern pass happy pro-offense NFL… the key to a dominant defense is having invisible superheroes play corner against non-marquee veteran wide receivers who don’t factor heavily into the NFL’s marketing strategy.

    Someday I’ll tell my kids about a game I played and use to love to watch called “Football”

    I’m not sure what this is we’re watching but it’s certainly not football.

  6. chiadam says: Sep 28, 2013 3:23 PM

    That’s actually exactly what the league wants. They would do away with contact entirely if they could get away with it. Whatever leads to more scoring to feed the Fantasy beast and television ratings. And if it helps avoid lawsuits in the future, all the better.

  7. redfield11 says: Sep 28, 2013 3:25 PM

    Can’t stop receivers from catching TD passes? Say it’s because you’re letting them.

  8. ninerswilldominatelikebefore says: Sep 28, 2013 3:27 PM

    hate on haters! GO NINERS! let us regroup and we’ll be back.

    hey wilsonwillflop, your seaderalls took the last two games BIG i give them that but dont forget its not always been like that. Before that our niners were 4-0 in the chete carroll era dont get too comfortable because things can change and your seaguls are leaving that adderall pharmacy and coming to the stick in december, clown.

  9. pikkiwoki says: Sep 28, 2013 3:27 PM

    Pssst, hey Donte, the rules are the same for every team. mmmkaythxbye

  10. arwiv says: Sep 28, 2013 3:30 PM

    All of these new penalties are horrible. The NFL has definitely taken a turn for the worse over the last several years. It wont be long before defenders are barred from making contact with offensive players until after they’ve both secured the ball AND made a football move afterwards.

    The days of safeties jarring balls loose from receivers just as the ball arrives will soon be a thing of the past. And the more our wussified sports media keeps complaining about how “violent” a sport football is, the worse its going to get.

  11. panteranate says: Sep 28, 2013 3:30 PM

    I think it’s funny that a ‘hawks fan is the first to comment. That team has been a laughing stock since the inception of the franchise! They’ve been bad for SO long,that their fans don’t even know how to act when they’re FINALLY winning,so they start a pretend rivalry w one of the premier dynasties in the league. No REAL niners fan gives a crap about them. Our REAL rivals are Packers,Cowboys,Giants,etc. Teams that have actually beat us when it mattered. Divisional or Champioship playoff games. Not in a week 2 matchup that means nothing. Oh that’s right tho…most of these “fans” didn’t even know Seattle had a team until last year when they were trading in their Patriots gear for Russ Wilson jerseys,so they don’t know that Seattle was never even in the same division(or conference)w the niners.. Wouldn’t even bother to comment usually,but I’m sick of hearing about how great the ‘hawks are,when they’ve never done ANYTHING of importance in the history of their team! Keep celebrating mediocrity tho…at least until you jump on the bandwagon of whatever other team is doing well.

    you’re still mad about that playoff game where WHITNER layed the wood on thomas huh??ahaha. Oh let me refresh your memory..graham scores late and is celebrating like crazy on the sideline thinking falcons…WAIT davis scores a TD NINERS WIN and jimmys crying on the sideline..

  14. serkeljerks says: Sep 28, 2013 3:35 PM

    If any of you had actually watched the games, to include the Colts game, Whitner is correct and not “whining” (which guaranteed is what 98% of the people opposed to his comments do in their normal day to day life).

    The NFL has become so overtly over-cautious in trying to tame down an inherently violent sport that defenders are now just become a nuisance.

    I would AGREE with the posters who say the key to great defense now in this new no-hit era NFL is having shutdown corners.

  15. afcdomination says: Sep 28, 2013 3:35 PM

    if he just complained about hitting when tackling, but really Whitner has never been very good in coverage. he is a very good run support safety though.

  16. norcalmafia says: Sep 28, 2013 3:38 PM

    You can hate on the Niners all you want, but Dante is right..The days of the big hit are over.Whitner is a physical safety that makes clean hits.Its to the point where if you hear pads pop the flags are gonna come flying..Welcome to the national flag football league..

  17. dirtysouthniner says: Sep 28, 2013 3:39 PM

    Wow, any niner fans on this article? Seahawks fan’s you guys won, stop being so doucheee, saints fan..we’ll play soon , good luck.. if you had a job that meant something to more than you and your family people would ask you questions in the media as well.

  19. uberniner says: Sep 28, 2013 3:49 PM

    The way to stop this nonsense that is ruining the game is to FINE THE REFS FOR BAD CALLS, and let the players lead with the shoulder just like they always have, but not to the head.

    If the ref calls a clean play for a penalty, the league should review it and FINE THE REFS when they make a bad call (and give them a demerit). If fines work for players, they should work for refs, too. If the same ref keeps making a bad call, FIRE him.

  20. thesportgenius says: Sep 28, 2013 3:51 PM

    Remember the good ol’ days when a receiver that didn’t want to get hit wouldn’t come through the middle where the likes of Ronnie Lott or George Atkinson were lurking? Remember when the defense was allowed their right to space on the field, when the ball/WR/DB all arrive at the same time and it was OK to hit the receiver to jar the ball loose? This is getting ridiculous. Remember Jack Lambert suggestion that QBs wear dresses? I guess we can include WRs now to.

  21. hoosyadaddy says: Sep 28, 2013 3:54 PM

    Niner fans, nothing like living in the past when you don’t have anything else to live for.

  22. arwiv says: Sep 28, 2013 4:03 PM

    I have a problem with the refs getting fined. They are only following the marching orders handed down by the league office; they are ALWAYS going to err on the side of caution even when there is only the slightest possibility that an infraction may have taken place.

    Don’t blame them….blame the clowns at the top who created this nonsense. NFL refs have a very tough job to begin with (unlike arrogant MLB umpires)….they are under the gun to enforce these dopey rules.

  23. EJ says: Sep 28, 2013 4:05 PM

    Whitner never played a day in his life like the player he was drafted to be. 1st round, 8th pick.

    A player taken that high is supposed to alter a Defense drastically. Whitner never did. His coverage skills are sup-par, run game is decent. The only thing he does very well is hit. Ohio State produces some of the best Defensive Backs the NFL has ever seen (Jack Tatum, Antoine Winfield, Nate “The Great” Clements, Mike Sensibaugh, Ray Griffin, Shawn Springs)and that is only some of them. This was the reason why Buffalo had Whitner so high on their draft board, Ohio State develops great DB’s. Took a chance and got duped though.

  24. stampnhawk says: Sep 28, 2013 4:06 PM

    Yawn.
    For all his other yapping, don’t hear Revis complaining about refs calls.

    As he, and more recently Sherman has proven, once you gain respect of opponents QB and OC’s for your skills on the field, you don’t see too many passes come your way.

    The guy keeps getting thrown to because he’s prone to both the big play against, and in being clumsy and taking PI calls for being clumsy.

    Funny…you never hear a Hawks fan talk about how all their titles were won when the NFC West was not only the worst division in the NFL….

    ……for a 3 year period it was the worst division out of ALL the major sports.

  30. norcalmafia says: Sep 28, 2013 4:20 PM

    I thought this was about hitting helmet to helmet? Not a Seahawk vs Niner thread..This effects everyone in the league no matter what color jersey..And Seahawk fans instead of just trying to dog the Niners you should beware because Seattle has one of the hardest hitting defenses in the league so alot more of these calls might be coming your way as well.

  31. panteranate says: Sep 28, 2013 4:40 PM

    And those Div titles amounted to??? You’re right,the niners were great..then they were terrible for a long time.(ie. 5 ‘hawks div wins)
    My point is…no real niners fan cares about the Seahawks. Their fans hate the niners SO much,and we don’t even care about them!

  32. deepthreat88 says: Sep 28, 2013 4:43 PM

    Typical of the Seattle fans: complain about hard hits the league calls legal. A sorry attempt to protect their receivers from Whitner in future games. Why can’t the Seattle fans be honest and call a clean hit a good play?

    How many off the Seattle fans were honest last year when their receiver shoved the Greenbay DB in the back to catch the Hail Mary pass. Answer: 0. You all lost credibility with that one, and it’s been hard to take you and your coach serious since then.

  33. rbanks51 says: Sep 28, 2013 4:45 PM

    Judging by that super bowl performance last year, I thought that’s what you were already doing.

  34. unsportsmenmic says: Sep 28, 2013 4:46 PM

    If yu saw the play, Whitner lead with his shoulder, but as the WR was going down the target changed and his shoulder hit the WR head. Whitner shouldn’t be fined for that, but the NFL keeps saying that the defensive player is responsible for adjusting to the ffensive player even if the defender is in midflight or hit.

  35. myhawks1976 says: Sep 28, 2013 4:48 PM

    “Can somebody call Donte Whitner and see what he thinks?”

    — said no one. ever.

    hey donte, your own qb will tell you about this mysterious phenomenon known as the Legion of Boom. they play in the same league with the same rules.

    kind of sounds like a “you” problem doesn’t it Donte?

  38. askcoachjay says: Sep 28, 2013 5:02 PM

    There is nothing you can do to change the rules on violent contact with the head and neck. That train left the station a long time ago. What makes more sense is to adjust the downfield contact rules. Eliminate the 5 yard chuck rule and slow the game down in the secondary. It may take a season or two to get the scoring back up. But allowing contact down the field is going to help reduce some of these violent, high speed collisions simply by slowing the receivers down, and closing the space between them and the defenders.

    I know no one wants to hear this. But, if these guys don’t get it through their thick (although, tragically not thick enough) skulls that you can’t take kill shots with your head or at other guys’ heads – regardless of what you hit them with… You’re going to see a much larger scale set of alterations to this game. It won’t be long before you start hearing discussions about eliminating – or drastically restricting zone defenses – Restrictions on how many players may be playing zone, who they can make contact with, and how. Those discussions have already been taking place at lower levels of football.

    The players need to take the lead on this and make the game safer from the inside out. Chuck Cecil is gone. Jack Tatum is dead. And somehow, it’s still the most popular sport in America. Quit your bitching. Learn to play the game under the rules you have and go on with your career… Either that, or keep doing what you’re doing, go broke, get suspended, and you can spend your golden years chit chatting with the voices in your head because you weren’t smart enough to know that hitting things with your head is asinine, and hitting other people in the head is reckless and dangerous.

  40. wwwmattcom says: Sep 28, 2013 5:18 PM

    Get rid of shoulder pads.

    By lowering your shoulder pads, you lower your head. That would help eliminate head hits. These guys aren’t tough, their pads are.

    Its also worth noting that I see a lot of touchdown passes that end with Whitner getting to the play, oh just a second too late.

  41. hoosyadaddy says: Sep 28, 2013 5:19 PM

    “How many off the Seattle fans were honest last year when their receiver shoved the Greenbay DB in the back to catch the Hail Mary pass. Answer: 0. You all lost credibility with that one, and it’s been hard to take you and your coach serious since then.”

    Everyone was honest. He did shove the GB DB and it was offensive PI, but the refs didn’t see it. It was a missed penalty and it was a catch for TD afterwards. I was there and the looks on the GB fans faces after that call was priceless.

  43. gosfvr says: Sep 28, 2013 5:40 PM

    All the folks bagging on Whitner and the niners – Did any of you even watch the games?
    Whitner made very clean hits in the areas designated BY the NFL. The refs are unable to discern the difference between a clean and dirty shot on bang-bang plays so they are just erring on the side of caution.
    Hard as it is for me to say, plays of such magnitude possibly needs a quick review from the booth.
    As it stands, the refs are just killing the momentum of games with their decisions.

  44. superg2 says: Sep 28, 2013 5:40 PM

    Rules are all for the offense, I’m for safety of the players but let the boys play defense. Defensive pass interference, blow the head should all be reviewable. Penalty is too great to the defense.

  46. stlluna7 says: Sep 28, 2013 5:52 PM

    I agree with him. All these rule changes are going to make defensive players stay with the offense but there is no money in playing flag football and getting fined for being aggressive.

    Remember now they institute these rules, and the defenses are being raked. It is like watching Arena Ball on a bigger field.

    Jack Tatum would have gone broke from fines and even Jack Lambert or maybe even Lawrence Taylor.

    Whitner is 100% correct. And not whining at all. The hit Kam layer on VD in last years 42-13 beat down was legit as well.
    As for all the whiner fans getting all whiney about us hawk fans talking smack, we beat you with ease in back to back match ups so we can say whatever we want to about you. That’s how things work. I know you can’t beat us because the 2013 seahawks are probably the greatest team of all time in all sports, but if you could actually look like a football team when we play it would make the games more interisting.

  52. deepthreat88 says: Sep 28, 2013 6:39 PM

    Hoosyadaddy, “everyone was honest..”??? Go watch the press conference after that game and listen to your coach say, “it was a clean play, and I didn’t see anything wrong with Tate’s play” the look on the packers fans faces that you refer to is the same look of disgust that people around the league have for the Hawks and their coach.

    Seahawks fans and Pete “the liar” Carrol became the team around the league known as cheating lying cry babies. Prove me wrong and show me your post from right after that game stating that Tate cheated, the coach lied, and the Packers got screwed.

    Donte Whitner made two clean hits with his shoulder that he was penalized for. Both penalties were game-changing penalties. Seeing how the NFL is penalizing Dashon Goldson (before and after he left SF) and Donte Whitner on almost every single hit, legal or not, it seems like there’s something fishy going on.

  63. rodh32340 says: Sep 28, 2013 7:58 PM

    That’s right, the stadium was specifically designed to accentuate the 12th Man’s passion for their team. That’s why the team retired the #12, for the fans. Seahawk fans are very special, but you can just keep on hatin.

    Its funny how Seattle fans actually think They are louder than the rest of the world.

    That’s because we are louder.

    “The seating decks and partial roof direct exceptional amounts of crowd noise onto the field. It’s not that Seahawk fans are special, it’s just the design of your stadium. Get over yourselves.”

    That’s right, the stadium was specifically designed to accentuate the 12th Man’s passion for their team. That’s why the team retired the #12, for the fans. Seahawk fans are very special, but you can just keep on hatin.

    As was said before…”You mad bro?”

    ———————-

    You mean because you didn’t have any other numbers worth retiring?

    Seahawk fans are seriously amongst the most annoying people out there. We get it. It rains nonstop in Seattle and you’re all miserable. But please, don’t take out your lack of success (both your city & your team) on us.

    Now do yourselves a favor and go out and enjoy this wonderful weather… oh wait…

    They are the loudest maybe because their wives all look like Rosanne Barr! And the Seagulls are scavengers anyway.

    I really don’t like it when NFL players complain but he’s got a point! They need to let these guys play the damn game! It’s sad what they are doing to the NFL!

    I love how mad the 49ers fans are getting because the Seahawks are a better team then they are! Not saying the 49ers aren’t good but they are clearly not better then the Seahawks at this point in the season! Never saw a teams fans whine so damn much! Somebody give them the number to the Whaaaaaanimal Control!

    Really? Most People I know would trade 5 Super Bowl rings just to called the loudest.

    There go the Forty-Whiners again. Just keep wasting your energy complaining about every little thing. That way you’ll have nothing left on game day.

    AT 2-2 none of the other players’ issues really matter at this point, cause the bottom line is Krapernoob has played below Alex Smith (who is 4-0 with KC) this season and Alex Smith is better on almost ALL STATS which includes, QBR, ATT and COMP, Y/G, Comp%, Yards, TD to INT ratio, rushing yards, Fumbles and Fumble Lost…

    And we got rid of Alex Smith for this over rated over hype JUNK named KraperNoob???

    I knew this fool wasn’t ready, wasn’t elite, wasn’t going to take the team back the to SB this season.

    You can thank Harb and Baalke for this continual failure and the lost of the rare SB chance last season. Who knows when they will return to the SB again…

    Won’t be anytime soon, especially now the Seachickens are 4-0, and have the BEST Defense and Home Field advantage in the league, plus their QB is much more polish and mature than KraperNoob.

    Again, the FACTS are Alex Smith is 4-0 on a new team, KraperNoob is 2-2 AND Alex Smith beats KraperNoob on almost ALL the important QB STATS and it includes rushing yards. RUSHING YARDS? Isn’t that something KraperNoob excels at?!? What a JOKE!!! LOL ROFL LMAO…!

    Furthermore, Alex Smith sustains more drives to keep his Defense rested and fresh while KraperNoob doesn’t lol what a over rated over hyped JOKE…

    Wow at the comments here. Every fan has loves their team and rightfully so…but this thread isn’t about the 49ers, Seahawks, etc. It’s about the referee’s inability to call the games correctly as newly outlined by the NFL. C’mon man!
