Mike Golic jumped all over Steve Young -- legally, of course -- when Young suggested players injured against the New Orleans Saints might consider suing.

Their conversation on ESPN was a lively one.

At issue was the line between hard hits that could injure and the intent of those hits.

"You get knocked out with a clean hit and you're going to sue?" Golic asked. "Give me a break."

The NFL's investigation mentioned hits on Kurt Warner and Brett Favre from the playoffs following the 2009 regular season.

Another injury suffered against the Saints during that postseason also came to mind, although there was never any indication New Orleans injured Sidney Rice intentionally.

Rice, now with Seattle, suffered a career-altering hip injury in the NFC Championship Game. Rice finished the game, but he later required surgery.
