Just saw this article. Does anyone agree with this? I honestly didn't think it shoulda been a penalty. Maybe I just haven't adjusted my perception of what's legal/illegal.

On a side note, it reminded me of Clark nearly killing Willis McGahee in 08.

By letter of law should've been a pen.

This is the NFL now. It sucks. The crack back block was worse. It's getting to the point where you'll have to let your guy get tackled instead of making a block and go for everyone's legs to avoid helmet to helmet penalties. That will cause a lot more lower body injuries. We've always joked about putting flags on the QBs but seriously, are we getting close to that? That has to be the next step. They've made the window to actually tackle them so small you almost have to go to flags to keep from having a penalty every time there's a sack.

I thought Bud may have killed him

I was shocked when Moore returned to the game

I had no issue with penalty at all. Crack back call was utter BS.

I swear I saw Malcolm Floyd make the same crack back block in week 17 v Miami with nothing but praise for his hustle.

The inconsistencies in what's called is what make all these rules so infuriating and frustrating.

I'm sure you've tackled someone at some level. It's hard not to lead with your head, especially at the speed these guys are going. They called it by rule so I've become numb to that for the most part but it really is getting hard to actually make a legal play on the QB without slowing down. Problem is when you slow down in this league, you either get beat or hurt.

Led helmet first and hit him in the jaw. Clear penalty.

Literally jumped up with that hit. Moore was tough as nails, and made some fine throws on third down. Played admirably for a backup, but that's a tough spot on the road, down big early, and your run game getting stuffed. Could've been a lot closer game without some very timely turnovers.
