    They still won't call **** when it happens to Rodgers. :lol:

    Seriously, it amazes me how much they miss every week.

    Good to know, thanks Murgen for posting that!

    They must have blinders for Rogers, sorry didn't see it, must of blinked.

    NFL can review the play after the game whether a flag was thrown or not. I hope they crack down on this.

    If that's the case, I would like to see them go all the way back to week 1 and review all QB hits

    It's official. Suspensions are going to be rendered starting this week for helmet to helmet hits on anybody not just the QB. From 6ABC (Philly). Philly is feelin this because of the hit that took out DeShaun Jackson in last Sundays Eagles/Falcons game. The hit resulted in a severe concussion with memory loss for Jackson and he will miss up to two games.

    My thoughts exactly, this doesn't help us because the flag needs to be thrown first.

    This whole thing is getting out of control its a mans game let them play...by putting thiss rule in you are asking a player not to go full speed look for more big plays on offense because of safetys afraid to come up and make a big play!!!

    To me it boils down to common sense. Learn how to tackle without taking someone's head off! You don't lead with your head, don't go helmet to helmet. Nobody should be afraid to tackle, just use your head, and NOT as a weapon!

    I understand it's a split second decision most of the time and some of the times you can't help where the other player puts his head. You are right, it is a bit of a gray area. I guess they don't stage and choreograph the hits, LOL! I'm talking about ones that are in the players control and the hit was done with obvious intent. Those should result in suspension. The NFL had better have clear definitions of this rule otherwise it is going to lead to confusion.

    Well there are many more suspensions and fines to come. Seems like Goodell means what he says and vice versea. Injuries are a part of the game but also, it could mean a player's career on the line or worse.
