Question Hits on Ben

Anyone else notice some of the cheapshots not called on the Ravens against Ben? One of which came from Leonhard in the back (which he had to go back towards the locker room when he was grimacing in pain from it), one when a guy crawled on the ground and lunged at Ben's knee deliberately, and another when a guy took two steps or so and still drilled him.


If that would have been Tom Brady, Tony Romo, or even Eli Manning for crying out loud, the refs wouldn't have had enough flags to throw at once. Sure makes Ben look 10x tougher than any of those others (specifically Errand Boy) but it is not fair in my eyes that they allow him to take hit after hit and not call them to put a stop to it.

Yep, I did. That's football, and good teams play through it. I was glad to see Ben wasn't getting up and whining to the refs all night.

I seen at least 3 and one was very obvious, but I was watching online, and my feed was not so great, but it wouldnt suprise me in the least if there were more.

Yeah, I have noticed that. We touch a qbs ear-hole and get a 15 yard flag, but Ben gets drilled in the back way after the ball is gone...nothing!

They're afraid of him. :D Look at Big Ben yourself, he's crazy! He's obviously kind of a knucklehead, and he's huge. Gotta get them after the play, because more often than not, you can't bring him down legitimately.

No doubt....but I think the frustration here is the no calls. Ben is a warrior, but doesnt mean the rules have to be bent or ignored because he can take it. (not to incinuate thats what you mean)

No doubt they should be enforced but the refs are human and they are going to make mistakes.

This is also why the NFL needs full time officials
