    the league should allow qbs the right to go in the game strapped. Someone goes for the head give them a double tap to the cranium. bet they would quit going up top. LOL

    Note: This does not apply to contact against a runner, unless the runner is still considered to be a defenseless player, as defined in Rule 12, Section 2, Article 9.

    Crowned Doesn't give a shit.

    If you're talking about Sunday Countdown it said the league is going to meet to discuss a possible 1-2 game suspension. I didn't get "lhe will likely be suspended" from that.

    Dragonite Simply Arrogant!

    Ah I actually did not realize that, however McCoy was neither a runner and was defenseless.

    Look, I don't think Harrison should get suspended, I don't think he had malicious intent, but he did make an illegal play, and he could have wrecked Colt's career with a hit like that, he should be fined.

    I don't think he should get suspended for that hit alone. It's the fact that the NFL felt it had to come out and re-emphasize a rule based on his play, and he's STILL doing it. I don't think they have a choice.

    2 games would be non-sense. I think even one is over doing it, but I can see it as a repeat offender and they want to make an example of him. Robinson didn't get suspended. Seymour hasn't been suspended. 2 would be too much...
