Here is a Jets fans "description" of the hit...

"You're out of your ****ing mind!!! Timmons launches himself helmet first like a ****ing missle!! You are taught two things when tackling - get low and wrap up. Not launch yourself head first at the ball carrier.

At the end of the day, what you, me or anybody else on the board thinks doesn't mean shit. The league will have their say.

My prediction - 50K fine"

No wonder that city is such a crap-hole.

No doubt he was a bad draft pick.

I remember seeing some of the stats of one year wonders who leave early to go into the NFL... not good.

Don't care though, we've got Big Ben. Go Steelers!

After most hits like this you will see more sayings on this forum like "he couldn't do anything about it" and other things like that, not on this one. The players have so much on their minds playing the game that I don't know if they even think about fines, but you got to wonder if some of them just don't care. Harrison's hit on McCoy was total BS because McCoy originally tucked the ball and Harrison was preparing to hit a ball carrier. Timmons' hit was similar, but Sanchez had the ball up and Timmons seemingly had more time to make a decision of how to hit. It may not be how many others think about it, but if the players are willing to risk a fine for a big hit, then I'm all for it.

I may be in the minority on that, but I'll let the players worry about their money, I just want to see a big LB smack the other teams QB head on and get in his head. I suppose that would be considered "dirty" in today's league, but it's the way football has always been played. It's just like the intro video on NFL Network where you here a player in a pep talk say: "We're gonna look 'em in the eye, and we're gonna punch 'em in the mouth". The players haven't changed, just the rules.

When youre watching in slow motion a lot of hits look late... The hit wasn't all that late but it was a high hit on a qb.

Let me clarify a little. It really looks like he saw the ball come out, and instead of pulling up he lowers his head and steps on the gas. Maybe it was just bad timing, but I'm pretty sure the league will see the same thing.

Not saying I didn't love the hit, mind you. Just that I think if he wanted he could have pulled off a little.

"No wonder that city is such a crap-hole." The nerve!
I object........no wait, I don't. It is a crap-hole. I live 40 minutes away.
However, I'm, very familiar with S.C.; it has its share of crap-holes too.

Golden Tate has been fined for blowing up Cowboys. Still no word of a fine for wasting Sanchez. Hoping this means there won't be one. NFL would probably love to get Tebow back to starting anyway.

The Tate hit looked clean to me. He turned and saw a defender coming in for a play, and came at him. It looks like he caught him square in the chest with his shoulder and helmet. It seems to flag and fine are for him being "Defenseless". So he should have let him finish the play just because he didn't bother to be aware of his surroundings?
