Ex-Georgia QB Aaron Murray Almost Quit Football Because Of Nick Fairley’s Dirty Hits
Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports
While on the 3 Man Front show on WJOX, former Georgia QB Aaron Murray talked about the Bulldogs 2010 game against Auburn where he suffered a fractured sternum and serious whiplash. He said because of the dirty hits from Auburn's Nick Fairley, he almost quit football entirely...
quote:

“If he did that outside the football field, he’d have been in jail for three years. … That was actually the first time in my life I was like ‘I don’t know if I want to play football anymore.’ I’m not kidding either,” Murray recalled. “I was on the sideline, and I had six stitches; my jersey’s covered in blood; I had a fractured sternum and can’t feel the left side of my body. I got whiplash in my neck, and I can’t really move my neck. I was like ‘Is this really worth it? It’s my freshman year, I can quit now and save myself a lot of punishment.’

“I had to sit up sleeping the next two weeks. I couldn’t even lay down. It was tough.”

Murray should have been looking for apologies from his offensive line. They couldnt stop the man so Murray got his arse abused.

Auburn always did play dirty. Fairly was more dirty than the rest.

Funny how the narrative changes over the years. Fairly hit Murray late one time that game which I do think was a dirty hit. He was flagged for it. Rewatch that game, the rest of those "dirty" hits was simply the best defensive player in the country dominating a struggling team and that team acting like toddlers.

Almost as laughable as the Chaz Ramsey narrative. A chop block, which happens all the time, that didn't even cause Dorsey to leave the game now altered and nearly ended his career.

Let's see you take a cheap shot from a 300 lb+ psycho . It's easy to talk shite on your computer. You pay to watch these losers at auburn. You don't play.

Fairley is a terrible human being. He’ll wind up in prison. It is sad (and telling) that so many Auburn people would defend that scum.

Life served a big helping of pay back to Fairley. Funny how things go sometimes.

Lol yea Ben Jones is a real man. Get that arse whooped all day and jump on top of a guy laying on the ground after making yet another tackle.

Fairley = the perfect shite stain rep for the entire auburn football program. A useless human being enabled as a hero by a fan base with no standards. Not at all surprising aubs - and may you never change.

Fairley sure looked tough squirming on the ground with Ben Jones on top of him in that retribution play Richt allowed in garbage-time..

Lots of sensitive crybabies in here. Football is a violent sport. If you dont like it, there is always ice skating.

These comments warm my heart. 2010 was the season that the rest of the SEC deserved.
