Well to encourage no hard feelings on both sides, Mays did apologize to Schaub and Schaub told him no hard feelings.
Except maybe a raging head ache.
It wasn't legal - certainly not by today's standards.
Given his fine last week, I'd be shocked if he didn't wind up sitting a game or two because of it.
Same with pass interference, looking at a guy wrong draws a flag.

Maybe it's early and I'm tired, but I just do not see the Mays launching himself piece. Not once did his feet leave the ground. And this whole torn ear thing, that's a result of his stupid ear pads ripping past his ears. That's why he grabbed both ears. If anyone has played the game and had this happen to them, it hurts like a SOB. The bottom of his ear is torn is because his ear pads ran over his ears going upward. Was it a violent hit, yes but seriously is this the NFL. Will Mays get fined, yep because god forbid the NFL allows big hits. Just like the Reed hit last night. He will get fined as well and it was just a really nasty hit. 10 years ago the NFL loved those hits.
Hit was beyond evil, you don't want a hit like that on manning....that was helmet to helmet. With replacement refs....players are going to get away with a lot.
Let hits like that play out this year...manning won't lat long...no quarterback will.
Do you love that same hit if it happens to manning next game....it's not the hit, it's where he hit. He was going for the head. He wasn't going for the jersey numbers.

Can't hit them high, can't hit them low, welcome to the new (NFL) National Fairy League.

Thx Houshmazode For The Awesome SIG
I dont care. This is our field. If you QB's want to risk yourself to get a throw off at the last second -you are going to pay a price. Well worth the 15 yards. Not sure if the fine will change my mind but it could
Protect yourself at all times
great hard hit...
- 8+ years ago everyone is considering him a fearless LB in the mold of a Singletary type. Nowhere near as good, mind you.
- 4-7 years ago it would have been an iffy call for roughing the passer.
- 3 years to the present definitely roughing the passer whether we like it or not.
When I see plays like this I do not see a malicious intent. Shoulder makes contact first and well, regardless of my opinion, it is what the NFL is now. Tough on players, tough on fans. Keep hitting hard and try to be smart about it.
The rules are there because Goodell is a retard - Schaub didn't need that part of his ear lobe anyhow
IMO, it was a good hard hit. No helmet-to-helmet there at all. Worst damage caused by Schaub's helmet flying up and tearing his ear off, lol
But by today's rules, who the heck knows. He'll probably get a game + a fine.
Welcome to the boards!

It was an extremely hard play. Go to the video from the first page and stop it at ~8 seconds and slow mo it from there. At about ~11 seconds you can see Mays helmet DIRECTLY hitting Schaub's chest.
I am 100% positive that the penalty was for the helmet coming off, and ultimately what he will get fined for
