Default Smith's hit on Chatman...

Man, that looked like helmet-to-helmet to me. I wouldn't be surprised if he heard from the league office. It looked to me like he lowered his head into it.

I don't expect a fine for that.

Looked that way to me, too, Tom. I love this kid's intensity, but he needs to tone it down a teenie bit.

If he gets fined for that hit, I'll be pissed. He lowered his shoulder to hit him, and their helmets just happened to hit. That kind of play happens multiple times in every game; the only difference is that Chatman, unfortunately, was injured.

normally helmet to helmet fines and penalties are issued when its a receiver catching the ball in a rather defenseless position.. in that case the defender can load up, time up and target his shot. chatman was moving and smith was going for the tackle. those kinds of tackles happen all the time.

Smith is just a hard hitting player with the field conditions the way they were chatman looked like he was going down when smith came in and made helmet to helmet I don't think it was intintenal.
