    Can anyone make a gif of that huge hit on special teams by Olivier Vernon? He absolutely demolished the returner on the kickoff.

    I expect he'll get fined for that hit. It was helmet-to-helmet...not that I think he could help it cause the returner stumbled and it just happened but he'll get a fine.

    IMO worthy of a fine.

    Unnecessary hit, he could have easily just wrapped him up and knocked him down instead he ran over him as if he were Donte Stallworth.

    If that hit happened to Reggie everyone here would be pissed off.

    Nope. It was a clean hit. I watched the replay a few times and he lead and hit him with the shoulder pad.

    No malice in it, no intention to cause injury, good hit. Exactly how we need to hit the Jets next week, hit them hard enough that they dont want to get up again.

    That guy was crushed. On my TV you could hear the pop outside. Big hit.
    He will get fined most likely.

    Nice hit but I'd like to see him get more touches on the opposing QB. I'm rooting for him, he has the frame to be a quality player.

    Unless I'm confused, helmet-to-helmet hits are not illegal against ball carriers. We're not talking about players who are unable to defend themselves.

    Guys, helmet to helmet is legal as long as its not against a defenseless receiver or a launch into a QB in the pocket.

    get your rulebooks out

    Of course we'd be pissed if it happened to Reggie because we want every player to be safe, especially our teams. Have you ever ran down the field on a kickoff by the way? You aren't thinking. Personally, your Donte Stallworth reference was in bad taste my man; had to let you know that too.

    i loved the play-by-play announcer on that play:

    Referee:" 5 yard penalty. re-kick."
    Announcer:"Do you think Francies wants any part of a re-kick?"

    I thought it was funny that they chose a re-kick, so in essence the hard hit that player took didn't even happen.
