They said he was going to the locker room in the first half and he was on the bench.

Basically Del Rio's game plan for Schaub has always been to try and knock the snot out of him until he ceased to be effective or knock him out of the game entirely, whichever came first. He did the same thing today. Those two plays that resulted in 15 yard penalties and easily could have passed as felony assault were the Denver defense (read: Del Rio) deciding that they'd had enough of Matt's hot hand.

If fines don't come down for this it will be a travesty. I used to dread the Texans road game to Jacksonville for just this reason. Del Rio is a piece of excrement whose teams have always done this.

While there were certainly some finable hits, I don't know how much you can criticize the strategy. Texans run a finesse offense with play-action on almost every play, running or passing. The downside for the Texans is that it creates a lot of slow-developing plays, and often leaves the quarterback vulnerable on rollouts. As a d-coordinator, why wouldn't you try to exploit this by pinning back your ears and going hard after the QB? Read and react, and you're going to get misdirected to death.

It's been an effective strategy. I'm not questioning that. I like my NFL with QB's having to take hits just like the next guy. I'm just pointing out that over the years I've watched Del Rio coached teams and defenses now plant Matt's shoulder in the turf, hit him late over and over again, and basically walk the line between legal and illegal contact for years now. The man coaches a dirty defense and always has.

Hervoyel
09-23-2012, 07:39 PM

I agree, particularly since even mild contact with "His Peyton-ness" results in a 15 yard roughing the passer call. No sense rolling out the red carpet for him like that.

You can't retaliate against Manning. He and Brady enjoy a preference where calls are concerned that rivals some NBA players. You go after him and you will see suspensions come down. Of that I have no doubt. You also can't go telling players to retaliate in this day and age.

If I was a member of the Texans OL though I wouldn't have any qualms about rolling up on some Denver ankles after those two hits on my QB. If the Texans don't want to do that I can't fault them for it. They're professionals. At the same time there's a "book" on how to beat most, make that every team in the NFL. Teams follow those plans to the best of their ability and one of the reasons I think Schaub is injured so much is that defenses know that getting to him hard will take him out of his game. They're going to keep coming until someone makes them pay for doing it.

You're right, but if Kubiak's going to continue calling deep passes into the 4th quarter then Schaub's gonna get some hits. I'm not blaming Kubiak necessarily, but games like this are going to happen with his offense. NFL d-coordinators are not typically gentle souls in case you haven't noticed.

I've never seen either Manning be very fearful of anything. And certainly neither Gary nor Wade is going to condone or tolerate dirty play. Eventually it just results in costly penalties.

How bout that PI call in the endzone on Jackson .... Perfect coverage , the reciever makes the contact and the defender gets penalized.

Not to say there is any significant damage to his shoulder, but acute plain Xrays of the shoulder will usually only show an overt fracture if present. Hair line fractures or ligament damage are unlikely to be diagnosed now without an MRI.

The closeup on tv was consistent with a crush laceration with the edges retracted (separated) making it look like there is a loss of part of his earlobe. This is much like some of the females that have caught their large hoop earrings on something and the hoop tears through splitting the entire earlobe.



This (below) is one that has already been allowed to heal without repair (no longer bloody as opposed to Schaub's fresh injury). Note that there appears to be a loss of part of the earlobe.......but there isn't.

I understand what you're saying. It's not like I'm doing a voodoo dance every week praying for injuries for our opponents but at the same time it is the Texans good fortune to be facing the Jets when they (may) not have Revis. Not going to apologize for taking note of the obvious. Nobody ever apologized for easy wins over the Texans when they had players out or back in the day when our roster was stocked with everyone else's rejects. That's the nature of the game.

Basically Del Rio's game plan for Schaub has always been to try and knock the snot out of him until he ceased to be effective or knock him out of the game entirely, whichever came first. He did the same thing today. Those two plays that resulted in 15 yard penalties and easily could have passed as felony assault were the Denver defense (read: Del Rio) deciding that they'd had enough of Matt's hot hand.

If fines don't come down for this it will be a travesty. I used to dread the Texans road game to Jacksonville for just this reason. Del Rio is a piece of excrement whose teams have always done this.

del Rio has always pissed me off. This kinda bull**** makes me think he should have been kicked out of the league for a year, not Payton. I will be pissed if Miller and Mays do not get fines, and I think that the league should start suspending for this kinda stuff. A fine doesn't really hit them all that hard in the long run.

Schaub doesn't wear earrings. I have no doubt the helmet tore off a small chunk of his ear as opposed to simply splitting it. I don't see how he could have split it... unless his helmet broke and lacerated it or something.

Either way... he don't need ears to throw the ball.

:fans:

When you have hard surface (helmet) hit hard against soft tissue (ear lobe) which is crushed against another hard surface (bone), it creates a classic crush laceration (split ear lobe).

The mechanism much like this (see below) crush (split) laceration injury caused by hard surface (floor, wall, fist, etc.) blunt strike to soft tissues (brow area or as also seen commonly under the chin) backed by another hard tissue (bone).

If a heavy fine doesn't come down it will clearly reveal that Goodell is full of crap about "protecting the shield". They are already playing with fire by the continued questions about integrity of the sport with the scab refs, so a failure to protect players in obvious and flagrant fouls will be a good indicator of where the league's brain-trust is at right now.

Schaub was a warrior out there yesterday, and I dare anyone to question his toughness at this point. Only foolish haters would even try to go there.

Had I been Wade .... It would have been very difficult for me not to send a goon to blast Manning .... I wouldnt have cared if it was after the whistle , just knock him into next week.

Personally, I think a couple late hits on Manning were in order and I'm not kidding. Ya wanna play that way? DO YA?!!?!?!?!?

Antonio Smith said this morning that he had considered it, but then he said the defense saw that Schaub was alright and fighting to get back on the field. Said they decided then not to cost the team any major penalties from stupidity.

I know this, if Tony LaRusso saw that chite, he would've had his pitcher throw a fastball in Manning's earhole.

Only way to stop this type of garbage is to fine the representing team......big TEAM bucks..........while suspending the players........and dipping into the draft picks after and established number of multiple such infractions occur during a season.

If they REALLY cared about player safety they'd have ZERO tolerance.

Let it cost them a draft choice for the first offense.

Or let the fine eat into their salary cap numbers right off the bat.

The NFL is considering suspending Broncos MLB Joe Mays one game for a helmet-to-helmet hit of Matt Schaub in Week 3.

Mays will "at the very least" receive a fine for the illegal shot. Schaub suffered a mild shoulder injury and lost part of his earlobe in Sunday's victory, but emerged fine to play in Week 4. If Mays had to miss Week 4 against the Raiders, the Broncos might turn to UDFA Steve Johnson at middle linebacker.

Honestly, I said what I said at the time, but I have seen replays and, although it was a late hit, it was pretty bang-bang. It was still a helmet to facemask hit, but that is getting to be pretty hard not to do. When you think about it, it's pretty hard for these guys to not have helmet to helmet collisions sometimes. I'm not backing down from wanting him fined, penalized, etc.; but, I'm glad they didn't do what I was suggesting with going after Peyton.

What's got me thinking here is all the times I have complained bitterly about refts over-protecting and coddling other QBs. I doubt that the helmet-to-helmet contact part of it was intentional. Far as the lateness, yes it was late, but not by that much. I'm sure that every Denver fan in that stadium felt the refs were just giving us 30 yds. and 2 first downs on those roughing-the-passer calls...

I do still want him fined, and I'd like to see Del-Rio called out for it too, because I think it was at least insinuated to "get rough" with Schaub.

From HT.com (http://www.houstontexans.com/news/article-2/Quotes-Texans-at-Broncos-postgame/a0a7fea9-f87b-4e23-bf69-d67b3dfa126e)

[Kubiak] On his impression of Schaub’s injury – did he suspect a concussion?

“Our doctors…any time any player is on the field they go through the same protocol so the minute I went out there, [team doctor] Walt [Lowe] told me he’s fine, he’s got a big cut on his ear. So, obviously they took him off the field and I knew it would be a play or two before he came back, but he was obviously very sharp. He was talking to me out there and Walt follows the same procedure all the time.”

A one game suspension will cost him $208,882 and 35 cents. Hope it was worth it, jackwagon.

Schaub was standing upright. Mays came in upright and laid the crown of his helmet into Schaub's jaw. It would have been *extremely* easy for Mays to lower his shoulders and plant a facemask into Schaub's chest.
