  • Darien Stewart fined.....

    Darian Stewart was fined $24,308 for the hit in Amari cooper. I can’t believe this. He did nothing wrong. It was football.

          Seems more of a knee-jerk reaction by the league.

            Even del rio changed his tune after watching a replay of the hit and without saying too much to blame his guy admitted cooper lowered his own head.

                Wish there was a bit more common sense in the rulings.

                In this case Cooper lowered his head into the tackler. What could Stewert have done differently? Just perplexing.

                Other cases I find illogical is the hands to a QBs helmet call. Excessive contact I get the change in the rules but sometimes the pass rusher barely making a head slap is going to far. Another is the runner using a straight arm and grabbing a tackler's face mask. All too often they get away with so much while a tackler gets a flag for touching a runner's. I can see why defenders get so upset with the incongruities.

                Shouldn't be to much to ask for more common sense calls.

                    This is the same thing Brian Dawkins complained about 5 years ago. There has to be an outside entity that says these hits are sometimes unavoidable we play football!!!

                      I suppose live some of these look worse than others, targeting in college I don't like because of the ejection even with plays like this.

                      However when the league gets a chance to review it after the fact and still comes up with this fine. C'mon man!

                        I don't think we'll ever see a third party when it comes to hits. Concussion is the magic word that the NFL wants no part of. They're going to pass the buck on to the individual player every chance they get.

                          I forgot about this play. I can't believe it's resulted in a fine, considering how Cooper lowered his head into the contact. Terrible decision to throw the flag, even worse to fine Stew.

                            Yep, in my ranting I didn't take that into consideration I 100% agree.

                              I have said on MULTIPLE occasions that offensive players NEED to take responsibility for their own decisions. AS it stands right now a defensive player is the NFL's whipping horse or punching bag (pick your analogy). At some point I'd like to see the NFL fine the offensive player in this type of a scenario. If the offensive player drops his head then HE is putting HIMSELF in danger and preventing the game from being played in a safe manner.
