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.
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.
