The NFL flexed Skins - Boys to primetime next week. Sunday is going to be huge, the biggest DC football game in over a decade.
good luck redskins and colts...i love the guys that make it that werent expected too...
sidenote...i know my dolphins are out...but in hind sight...we could have easily been 10-5 or atleast 9-6 at this point...some blown games.
but,there is promise where i had doubt in the beginning of the season(tannehill)...he wasn't the problem...that horrible secondary and a lack of a WR threat was it.
itz pretty sad when your leading threat is a slowass hartline...don't get me wrong...the kid has hands but no downfield speed...
devon bess is great possession guy...but he's to small...
where in the hell was fasano all season?
So, the NFL fines Ed Reed 55k for that hit on Victor Cruz. I actually think that that's pretty harsh as while it was a rough hit, it wasn't against the rules or anything.
At least he didn't get suspended this time
Any of you get the impression the bigger guys in the NFL (OL/DL players) usually have a speech impediment? Whenever I watch one of them do an interview or come on Sportscenter it's like they're always slurring their words or stuttering just something I picked up on...
Clean hit, should not have been a flag, let alone a fine. Reed led with his shoulder, did not "torpedo" himself, and did not come close to hitting Cruz's head. Awful call, the fine only compounds the mistake. The biggest problem with the new rules are that the ref's don't know how to call them yet, and the league fines even if the film exonerates the defensive player.
You sure it isn't just your anti-Giants biased clouding things?
I can see why a flag was thrown. With these new rules that neuter defensive players, I've seen even less than that flagged. Silliness.
