    Illegal according to the rules. He led with the crown/top of his helmet, case closed.

    I took a few looks at the .gif again and watched the youtube link. Can't tell exactly when he caught the ball, but it looks like two steps were taken. I also do not think the receiver was capable of protecting himself when he was hit (Bostic did have his head down on the tackle). So illegal hit, but I also think it might have been a fumble, and I don't blame Bostic.

    Ten years ago this was league. Just like a lot of other things.

    Rules change, it's the way it is...

    There a lot of other rules that soften the game, but rules are rules.

    All that matters is that the league thought it was illegal. Whether we agree or disagree, really doesn't matter IMHO.
