As for the hit, I don't think it was near as bad as some of the others this season. I'm sure he'll get a small fine and poof! it's gone. They need to start implementing ejections if they want to get anywhere with those hits. Fining an NFL player max of 50K doesn't do anything.

It's a matter of fairness. Ward was already tackled, basically, and this guy runs up and spears him in the head anyway. It was a dirty hit and should be recognized as such.
DancinJack wrote:I only saw a replay, but did they call a penalty on it? I imagine if he got called for a personal foul he'll probably get fined. I agree though that they should fine, or enact whatever penalty, across the board for those hits. And since you mention Harrison i'll comment on that. He's not a dirty player nor do I think he aims for those hits. He just plays hard all the time and gets caught in a bad position sometimes. Shame that it puts other players in jeopardy though. By the way, props to the Cowboys and Broncos today.
