    I loved it, but I was honestly looking for a flag right away. I think 50% of the time in the regular season, that hit draws a flag. I don't think there was any helmet to helmet, but how many clean hits have we seen flagged over the last couple of years. That's just the way our league is going. That said, I'll take the penalty risk and give the kid an attaboy for playing real football.

    Yeah, could have been "leading with the helmet" but haven't heard about a fine from the league yet. I guess he'll find out this week!

    I thought it was clean, he went in with his shoulder, didn't go for his head, didn't launch, seemed like a good clean hit, but borderline. Even so, a hit like that, a potential $5,000 fine in the preseason, that is in the back of players minds whenever they see 57 on the field is worth every cent for our defense.

    Correct. He DID lower his head to make the tackle, but he still "HIT" with his shoulder, not his head.

    It's one of those gray areas. If he were to start doing those big hits but tends to be on the illegal side more times than not, he'll get the reputation and won't get the benefit of the doubt. (I.E. Troy Polamalu)

    How is it a gray area? He lowered his head (tackling at that angle with your head UP is pretty dangerous itself), and his shoulder hit Willie's shoulder as Bostic wrapped his arms around him.
