Holy crap! Does Goodell realize he did this to a Steelers player? I would have thought he'd give him a medal.

I say "good". It was clearly an illegal hit and deserved a fine more than Harrison's hit on Colt McCoy ever did.

Peter King wrote in MMQB that this fine is a joke. He thought it should be something near 6-figures.
