ctremblay187:meriweather put on a pretty good hit on todd heap this past week...now they are looking at least a fine and proally a suspention which would be costly for the pats
Vulchor:Goldy----Its flag football now remember? No more hits to knees, head, ankles, shoulders, using helmets, ect. You also have to determine while in the midst of a play if a receiver is defenseless, and then tackle him accordingly.I am all for the NFL stepping in on these concussion issues and other head injuries, and even understand their best intentions are at play here----but ya gotta let em play too. These guys arent getting paid millions to play chess, and they didnt get to this level from thinking it was hand checking in basketball....lets find a little happier medium here league, or just let certain guys wear the red jersey.
Vulchor:I agree, but the mentality of the players also needs to be understood. Its millions of bucks and win at all (or almost all) costs. What better way to disrupt a route with a receiver and a QB than having a guy afraid to make that catch across the middle?? Not defending it, but its taken as part of the game and a way to get the upper hand on an opponent the same was as any other preparation and advantage would be.
PuroFreak:That hit to me didn't look as bad as the hit Mayweather gave. The Mayweather hit seemed like more of a cheap shot and an attempt to hit helmet to helmet, but what would you expect from someone that plays for the Patriots...
Goldy:Well it looks like they did not fine that guy. Did anyone see if there was a penalty on that play and if so what it was for? I was working.
amz1301:Just turned the game on. Two of my best friends grew up in Texas. That's all I hear, Dallas this Dallas that. One of them even named his son Dallas. I get tired of hearing about em. Can't stand em, hope they dont do **** this year.

Can't stand em, hope they dont do **** this year.LOL,, I used to hate them with a passion. But something happened bout 8 years ago where I started liking them. Probably had to do with one of my best friends loving them and it rubbed off on me. I like SD too but not a big fan of Norv Turner.
amz1301:Gotta go with Da Bears tonight. Eli's a big baby. I saw Tony Siragusa ask Eli a question on the sidelines either before the half or after the game and Eli kind of blew him off. Siragusa's my man, I was hoping he'd smack the big baby around a little.
