Default Eagle hit on Collie

you all see what the ****ing NFL is coming to? you hit a guy too hard, you get penalized. i hope the guy is alright.. but what was the defender supposed to do? Collie got hit initially by a shoulder to chest hit, his head went flying up and made contact with the other defender's head. an absolute JOKE!

yeah that shouldn't have been a call. Collie prepared himself for the hit, freak accident that he got injured, but should not have been a penalty. Just a poor call by the refs.

there was a penalty just because it was against the colts, who are one of the darling teams of the nfl.

if it happened to a patriots receiver, that defender would have been ejected from the game and probably suspended for the remainder of the season just because

Its because Manning is the most marketable player in the NFL and everyone hates Michael Vick... its a conspiracy against Philly so they never win a superbowl!

Yeah - I posted on this in the "what are you watching" thread

Notice how Simms said the call was crap and after a commercial break Nantz comes back and gets on board with the Goodell party line?

But after everyone in the booth agrees Goodell is right Simms then comes back and says the Browns win today illustrates there is no substitute for being physical to win in the NFL

Glad to see the guys in new york agree that the call was bull shit. Cowher, Marino, Sharpe and Boomer all know the game better than Goodell and his goonies.

CBS halftime crew not on board with the penalty

Boomer - "league overreacting"

Sharpe - "this is not a personal foul"

Cowher already saying "he should not be fined" - "this was a clean play"

just wait until tonight guys.. we'll see all the NBC homos (Peter King, Florio, Harrison, and even Dungy) come up with some horseshit reason as to why the hit was illegal and the player should be fined.

Cowher said the NFL offices told him that because Collie was hit before his 2nd foot came down that it made him a defenseless reciever...
I just don't understand the logic of that, no way the refs saw that, no way either saftey saw that when they laid the hit on him. And he braced for the hit... But because Collie was injured, you'll see the NFL will make it an issue.

If they fine the tackler, then I'll be speechless. That was a totally legally and rather routine hit. He even made a point of using his shoulder. The league needs to introduce the new helmets.
