yea Taco they showed it on ESPN, but they also showed Kennedy leaving his feet head first like a spear for what defintely was a illegal hit...Surtans was more a wrap your arms and they were face to face..but you didn't see Rod head rock back...But a rule is a rule and I guess Surtan has to pay.

You're still here? Man, get the **** off our boards. In case you didnt notice the final score was Miami 24.....BroncHos 22...in your backyard.

By the way, what is up with your classless fans? They were all booing while Chambers COULD HAVE been paralyzed. Man, is everyone from SouthPark over there? Trey Parker and Matt Stone did an outstanding job of portraying the trash of Denver.

Dude your no better and I'm ashamed to have you here as a phin fan. Your cheering over on the bills board over winfield's injury. Don't be a hypocrite when your just as bad. At least Taco doesn't swear and cheer on injuries. He's a solid guy.

i thought that was weak of the NFL tonight guys to show replays of what Surtain did and compare that to kennedy. Surtain was trying to make legitimate tackles, while kennedy was clearly trying to lower his head and use his helmet as a weapon. those guys who played in the league can't tell the difference between a guy making a tackle which includes incidental helmet to helmet contact and a guy launching himself, head lowered, into a player in midair? and the broncos appealing, saying he was trying to hit him in the chest--i can remember "spearing with the helmet" being a penalty in the nfl for a long time now, at least back to the early '80's. what does it matter where the helmet lands--if you're using it as a weapon, you're going to get punished. kennedy could just as easily have broken his own neck on the play. a suspension should give him some quiet time to think about that.

While I think Surtain's hit on Rod Smith was more tame than the one he put on Mcaffrey and far more less offensive than what Kennedy did to Chambers, I also agree that if he hit with his helmet than fine him. However, the fact that they are not relasing the amount of the fine leads me to believe that this was only to shut Shanahan yap and appease his complaining about his guy and how unfair his treatment was. I imagine the fine was a small one if any.

First offense of the season is usually $5-$10 thousand.

It sounded like he has been fined all along, but the media just didn't pick up on it.

Cmon Echo, Don't make fun of injuries. Especially if it is against a hated rival. I would never do that.

Here are my comments on this situation. These comments may upset some viewers of these posts.

I am highly upset upon learning about Gene Washington fining Surtain. I believe a lot of the fine was due to Mark Scherlet's(who is probably unhappy that with ESPN hiring Bill Walton he is longer the ESPN employee with the most operation performed on) and Sean Salberry's whining about the Kennedy suspension and they showed a few helmet to helmet hits done by Surtain. I also believe that Gene Washington has a grude against defensive backs. Washington was a wide reciever in his playing days.
As for myself wide recievers are the group of football players that I like the least(noseguards and centers are my favorites). I feel that the wide recievers would like to have the physical play reduced. I do not agree at all with fining defensive players with head shots against wideouts. I confess that I do really enjoy seeing a defensive player laying out a wideout, and do feel it is a part of the game and should not be de-emphasised.
