Would have been a legal hit .... If he didnt make contact with his head. You just cant make contat with the head anymore .... and more often than not , they are borderline or
the runner tucks which causes the head contact rather than a shoulder or lower.
Im kinda on the fence about those calls .... but can see where the players health is more important than my entertainment.
That one , I thought was a legit call .... he hit him right in the facemask.
Taking Cutler outa the game probably saved this W because of how well the Bears D played in the second half , that was my point of it being a good penalty.
