Whether it's illegal and whether it's stupid are two different things, and you can't expect a head coach in the NFL to come out and say that the rulebook is stupid, because they have to play by it. Tomlin "defended" Harrison as much as he could, explaining that the hit was under unusual circumstances and that he had been working hard to change the way he plays and that he hadn't had a personal foul in over a year. What more is he supposed to say? Did you expect him to say that Harrison's hit wasn't illegal when it so blatantly and obviously was not?
Moron. No wiggle room? All you need to see is Harrison aimed for the chest on a player that left his feet to make a last second pass. His head just so happened to be where his chest was at the time of impact. That's like someone t-boning a car that ran a redlight. The person who had green should not be held liable for idiocy from others
